Catherine sighed, and Nick took a sip of his coffee. "Well, nothing brightens up your day like solving a case where a father kills his whole family because he was trying to watch TV and couldn't hear it." Nick said.The CSI Team Plays Catch8 years ago in Humor More Like This
"God, don't remind me. That has to be the stupidest reason to go on a murderous rampage." Catherine sighed.
"Is there ever a smart reason?"
Just then, Greg came through the door with a huge smile plastered on his smug face. He had a small box in his hands. "Hey you guys! Guess what?" He said, excitement in his voice.
"You became sane?" Warrick asked.
"No, but I'm working on that. Why do you guys always ask stupid questions? Anyway, I got us a game to play! It's totally fun!"
Nick and Warrick groaned.

Fourteen rolls his eyes at me (at least, I assume they're his - he and Tag share the same colour irises, but the rest of him looks like Fourteen). "You think we did?" he asks, hefting a piece of rebar and tossing it onto the mountain of junk we've collected. "I thought this was going to be one of those chance-of-a-lifetime deals. You know - the whole 'use your powers for good' superhero schtick?"
"Yeah, yeah." I can hear Finch sniggering to himself, but I keep a straight face. For all Fourteen's a geek and a nerd and everything else you could sling at him, he's hit the nail on the head with that one. "I got the whole 'join up and serve your nation' thing pinned on me. Like the shifter thing was something I ought to be using for the greater good instead of 'wasting'."
I hadn't been wasting it, of course. If anything, I'd been using it better than

I close my eyes
Your image still fresh
Your beautiful face
Burning into my mind
Eating the tissues
That sustain my sanity
I cover my ears
Your words still ringing
Your angelic voice
Running through my veins
Paralyzing the muscles
That sustain my control
I hold my breath
Your scent still powerful
Your intoxicating pheromones
Crashing into my body
Snapping the bones
That sustain my temple
I surrender my consciousness
Your touch still tingling
Your velvet skin
Piercing through my flesh
Spilling the organs
That sustain my existence
I swallow my tongue
Your taste still overwhelming
Your ambrosial flavor
Driving into my chest
Lacerating the soul
That sustains my heart

To my lost love
I'll see you again
But for now all I want
Is this bottle of gin
A bottle of sorrow
It fills me up right
Just like you used to
Next to me at night
And you walked out through the door
Without a goodbye or wave now
The flowers hit the floor
That I bought you yesterday
Take him by the hand
Forget I ever loved you more now
Forget the promises
That you promised yesterday
And this is love
This is love
This is nothing to me
And this is love
This is love
Pass the beer down on to me
To my lost love
I'll see you someday
And I hope that your lover
Turns out to be gay
Call me a bastard
Call me insane
Atleast im not lonely
With beer next to me
And you tripped out on the street
Hit by a drunken taxi cab now
You fell down to your feet
No that's the dreams found in my head
To see you suffer love
Like you simply did to me now
Forget all the above
My answers " Yes I want her dead "
And this is love
This is love
This is nothing to me
And this is love
This is love
Pass the beer

Narcotic mind and narcotic soul,
With this curse you will pay your toll,
Destruction of body and decimation of mind,
With these words I your destiny bind.
For seven day and seven night,
I shall plague your spirit with this blight,
Body break and heart sear,
Repent for your sins with screams of fear,
Learn your lesson and learn it well,
Or be forever under this spell.

Gai said we have to come. This is so dumb. Said Tenten.
Well we have room. Come in. Said Rock Lee. Tenten walked in followed by Hinata, Ino, Sakura, and Temari.
But this is a BOYS sleepover. Naruto protested.
Try telling that to Gai. Ino said sarcastically. She had a purple sleeping bag and black and white suitcase. Sakura had a red and white sleeping bag. Hinata carried a light brown book bag and a periwinkle sleeping bag. Temari had a duffle bag and sleeping bag both black and red. Tenten carried a dark green bag and a pink and red sleeping bag.
Hey the more, the more training fun! Rock Lee said, happy every one had forgotten his secret.

Night ShiftI drift upon the words she whispers;Night Shift6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A traveler flying between the cinders.
Her lips are slippery when wet.
Indeed they were when we met.
She walks like the night
Feline and sly.
Cold in appearance
With a flame in each eye.
Her heels like two servants
Holding her high.
She's the night's whisperer,
A moonlight spy.
I walked into her nightly shift;
Brought with me a single gift.
Carved from my coronary flesh
A home-made key for her mesh.
Enshrouded by her nightly shift,
I heeled and kneeled and set adrift,
Till I noticed some small dot
Beside her breast there was a slot.
Now like a knight I draw my key
Toward the lock in front of me.
Her nightly shift will soon depart
As I reactivate her heart.
Smiling as she turns away,
Toward the light; toward the day.
I used to drift upon her whispers,
Now she treads upon my whimpers.

I make small mistakes that build up.
I spend too much time dwelling on the past.
I look out the window and sigh.
All the things I could be doing
blowing like the breeze.
I feel like I'm floating through
a waking dream.
Grasping at wisps of smoke
hoping for some semblance of substance.
She chases butterflies with naive eyes.
She hides behind understated lies.
She passes me by with a slight glance.
We are close but do not touch.
That is all I'll ever choose.
I look behind to see the
wreckage of my past.
She looks forward to how long we can last.
We are only as sick as our secrets.
She asks me questions I do not wish
We dance with intricate precision.
With no hesitation or indecision.
Like we've always known this would be.
Our blinders melt away so we can see.
Sometimes it's all I can do to keep breathing.
We take tiny steps to begin the healing.
You don't have to interfere to lessen my fear.
Just be near.

Now, that's something to take pride in, I know that much. I know I'm a king because of it, or leastways some kind of squire, or something. Frankly, I can't be bothered to think about ranks these days.
The problem is a lack of recognition for it. I can go out of my way for somebody, and they'll completely ignore it. Now, I'm not an attention-craver, by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, sometimes, being alone, out in a field, with a can of Arizona and a good book is all I need to have a great weekend. But there's a nod to acknowledge decency, and there's being an ass.

Begging you to go to sleep.

They made me want to fulfill your every wish.

I love the way I can talk to you

Or keep a thing inside

Or when you just don't care
But I know in my heart you will do what's right
For me, you will always dare
Material things will never matter
As long as I have you
You make every day that passes
So much easier to get through
My worries disappear when you're around
No thoughts of pain or doubt
I feel your love when you hold me close
And kiss me if I pout
I don't care what they are talking about
All I care for is you
I'll jump off a building to show you my love
If that's what I have to do
I love you for everything that you are
Not what you promise to be
I know you can't see why or how
You're the most important thing to me

She was thirteen. Thirteen, and they told him she was dying.
Stephan Thomas was not much older at seventeen but, even still, he thought it was sad. Sad like the calves that did not survive the first few days after birth, their little bodies shriveled and pale, bones jutting out in sharp, awkward points. When they told him that Eliza was dying, he sat quietly on the back step trying to remember all he knew about her.
For thirteen years, they had shared the same home. It was an old stone farm house. At one point in the last century or so, it had been divided in half so that two families could live there side-by-side. Stephan, his mother, and father lived in one side. Eliza Preckerd, her father, and three little sisters lived on the other.
She was tall and astute, with dark hair and brown eyes. Her dresses were all very prim, modest. The only bit of frippery he'd ever seen her indulge in was a blue ribbon for her hair. Unlike her three young sisters, Abby, Becca, and Julie, she was very q
