And hide them in our pockets
Cage them within jars of glass
Like fireflies on a midsummer eve.
We build castles of sand and air
Devastated as the tide reclaims them
Breathing deeply in quiet sobs
As the sand runs through our fingertips.
We long and yearn for something
Never quite able to define what it is
Reaching for straws to keep above water
As the tide washes over us.
And the wind
in the sand.

Stunned, the boy stared at the dead bodies of his parents. What had he done? Had he done something? He remembered the warm, soft feel of his blanket on his skin, but why he was standing in the kitchen? He could not remember how he got here. Uncertainty made him shudder. At the same realization hit him, the killer had to be still around. He had to find him before he found him, or worse Katyh. It would be painful enough to teach her the death of their parents. The boy let his gaze wander around the room frantically. Inside the fireplace the remains of a fire glowed but spent only a dim light. It was not even up to the corners of the already very small room. The boy could find no evidence for a fight. Who ever had killed his parents was a master of his craft. But why should anyone want to murder his parents? Was it because of the gold? But during winter season, no one came all the way from the city. Even if it was warm in the village, the road was long and no one coul
An Almost Christmas Story 3An Almost Christmas Story 34 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a time to be joyous. The evening of Christmas Eve had begun with a magical entrance. Flakes of ashen snow trickled under the pale sky, decorated with streaks of pink and purple hues that reflected from a grand sunset. Cold breeze easily filled the lonely streets, as most people had opted for the snug and toasty warmth of a home occupied by their family members.
Although this wasn't the case for Zack, he equally felt a great joy and relief. The strenuous mission had finally come to its end. Earlier, the squad spent a tiring five hours working to retrieve Marilyn Hutton's earrings, an impromptu mission thought in the nick of time. The plan was simple - sedate her, take hold of the jewelry and leave no evidence - but even a trivial error could blow their cover. Zack supervised his team from the reconnaissance vehicle, as the rest spread out to play their roles. As Ryan watched over the perimeter, Nicky and Dawn blended in the afternoon Christmas Eve function as guests. Dawn managed

TensionOver the course of time, baby Zorua, who belonged to Lucario and Zoroark, grew to be a young healthy, playful, pup who absolutely adored both his mother and father. He never favored one over the other, as some children do, and sought to include both of them in whatever he did, whether it was play wrestling, napping, or taking little strolls through the forest.Tension5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Yet Zoroark and Lucario noted something troubling in their son's life; he never said his first word. He would laugh, or growl when he played, yet even though he was still a pup, he hadn't said a single word. Lucario and Zoroark discussed this one day, while Zorua was rolling and playing in the sweet green grass.
"It worries me, Lucario," Zoroark said, with the most troubled expression. "Not a single word has our son spoken. Not mother, nor father..."

Al, you're my brother,

You carry it as your body
You say you will save me,

A promise is a promise none the less
I will hunt and chase the very being
Your body wails to be found

As a dog I bare my fangs
I'll tear down my own life,
To find what's lost
Equivalent exchange is our beginning and end
No matter what cost,

Alphonse can you trust the words of a fool for a brother?
I may be a soul without a home,
But we're in this together

Applejack was trotting down the hallway, her hooves echoing through the darkened and empty house. Her eyes were drawn to the light coming out of one of the rooms, her older brother’s room. Taking a step forward, she looked in to see a candle flickering at his desk. The red stallion was sitting in front of the open window, looking up at the night sky.
“Big Mac?” Applejack spoke softly, not wanting to startle her brother.
The stallion turned his head to see his orange-coated sister, “Howdy, Applejack.” He turned his attention back to the night sky.
“Everythin’ alright? Ya seem down an’ out, sugarcube,” the mare expressed her concern as she trotted over to Big Mac.
“Ah’m….fine,” his reply was delayed and uncertain.

Rarity Character ReviewAt times it seems as if the character of Rarity in "Friendship is Magic" is unfairly treated. Some accuse her of being self-obsessed and shallow, whilst others contend that she is their least favourite pony. And sure, Rarity may not be the most adorable of ponies, but this does not mean that she doesn't have an appeal entirely of her own. Fans are rightly divided when it comes to Rarity, but few could deny the maturity and elegance that she conveys at every opportunity.Rarity Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Her obsession with fashion and looking appealing can be both blatant and subtle. At times, such as in "A Bird in the Hoof" Rarity is seen leaving the party whilst demanding that other ponies remain away from her, as to prevent her dress from getting touched by their dirty hooves. Similarly, in "Dragonshy" Rarity packs an extra scarf, presumably because, regardless of the situation, she wishes to look good. These are just two examples of Rarity at her most extreme, but they are by no means the only situations where Rarit

Jeff sighed as he opened the door to the condemned house he once lived in as a child. The sight of the items that remained inside scattered array depressed him a bit. Broken glass littered the floor, holes were punched in the dry wall from what Jeff had done himself, and in the midst of it all was the love of his life, lying on the carpeted floor asleep in the pile of shattered glass.
Jeff walked over to the sleeping girl and loomed over her. Her arms were lined up with bruises, hand prints, and bite marks. Her cheeks were stained below her closed eyes and her hair was catching the shards of glass that alined the floor.
Carefully, Jeff came to his knees and slid his arms under the girl's side in attempt to lift her but as soon as he made contact with her, her eyes snapped open a

I suppose I should feel happy for him… she thought to herself. She looked up at him-- a Cinccino. Ever since she was an Espurr, and he a Minccino, she'd had her eye on him and wanted to tell him how she felt about him. While they were friends, he was completely oblivious to her advances, even more so than an Illumise.

Shades of words can strengthen...walls

A droplet of water lasted me a thousand ages
For I have traveled inside my mind
I documented a thousand faces
That ended up turning blind eyes
The lifeblood of faith kept urging me to wait
While I became a statue deprived of light
and the life I once called mine
Numb sounds flow / Passions let go
Clinging onto footprints / A coward's instinct
Uncensored immunity is a curse
For tragedy teaches weakness
Nothing will be of any worth
As love and fear will be without consequences
Once upon a song / You were a flower
Your petals became undone / Gone now and forever
A taste of your grace got me through a thousand fates
I have not forgotten the abyss of your bliss
But it broke me over and over a thousand ways

My wings are broken and bruised.
I've almost forgotten what it's like to fly

But I will rejoice
For my Lord is risen
And he stands triumphant in Heaven
At the right hand of the Father.
He saw me in my suffering
And he came to my rescue.
Me, a lowly sinner...
And his sister by faith.
He broke my heavy chains
And liberated me from that place.
He mended my broken, battered wings
And taught me how to fly again.
Tears of joy fell from my eyes
And a smile adorned my lips
As new strength filled me.
His strength strong and true.
This was a dream I had hoped would come true.
I could feel the sun on my face,
The wind in my hair and wings,
And the gentle touch of my Savior once more.
He held my hands as I floated in the air,
His love and mercy surrounding me like sunlight,
His grace and strength lifting me up
Like warm and powerful air currents.
He laughed when I laughed
And shared my joy with me.
