Choking on my shapeless thoughts
Fading in my formless dreams
Lying in my doomed reflection
Finding nothing as it seems.
Drowning in the bloody battle
Falling to a faithless place
Running into open arms
Weeping for a fallen grace.
Dying for a taste of life
Watching angels die for love
Fighting those that hold me down
Gasping for the air above.
Failing those I loved the most
Hoping for a second chance
Vanishing into the darkness
Disappearing at a glance.
Ending things that fate began
Mourning those that left me
Crying in my restless sleep
Wanting things that can not be.
Waking in this mortal realm
Seeing past this hopeless lie
Dreaming precious memories
Wishing they would never die.

Chapter 2- A World Unveiled
"I left dinner for you in the microwave, honey," came her father's voice from his study when Rain got home. It was after nine, but he never asked her where she had been, and was never angry no matter how late she was out walking. For all he knew, she was out clubbing on a school night, yet none of this occurred to him. She sighed. Sometimes Rain wished he would get mad, that would at least mean he had to pay attention to her. Part of her assumed he just innately trusted her judgment, believed she was the upright person she actually was. Most of her knew, though, that he hardly seemed to notice her lately and it never even occurred to him to worry. However, she didn't say any of this. It would not faze him, and perhaps serve only to hurt him. Above all things that was something which she was unwilling to do.
"Thanks, da," she replied to her father Devon, unlacing her boots and leaving them by the door. She did not want to track the
Toes Numb As HeartsToes Numb As Hearts10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crouched on old wooden steps
Between rusting iron bridgework
So cold she can barely breathe
Yet occasionally clouds of hopeless dreams
Kiss the air
Then fall and shatter at her feet
Toes almost as numb as her heart
Which even she isn't sure is beating anymore
And as the sun falls off the horizon
A lonley grey lies over the earth
Holding little promise for tomorrow
The breeze burns into her skin and she smiles
As she remembers how your hands once did the same
No one notices she's gone
And she likes it
In a strange way having no one who cares
Makes pulling the pieces apart so much easier
Than having to be watched
But maybe she's just selfconscious
Comfortable in her surroundings
Absorbing everything like it's the first time
There's a sparkle in her eyes
Everything is so much more beautiful....
When it's the end of the world
beh..how i make flashbeh..how i make flash9 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
All spelling mistakes are copyrighted by meeeee, okay they aren't.. flash by macromedia and all respective companies and websites are named are owned by themselves. Yay. If you look for anything specific, hold control and F, or command and F on a Mac I believe, and look for the keyword there.
So let the headache begin ^^:
How to get Flash:
There are 4 ways:
A)Buy it at macromedia.com, the official way. it's expensive tough.
B)Go to shareware websites, like www.download.com, and get the trial version, so you can try for a month. You probably give up on flash after that time anyway.
C)Finding a bootleg version, which is illegal, so i won't discuss it to save me from trouble
D)finding a person who owns Flash, and can send it to you with msn/aim, but the file is huge mind you. And this is also illegal I think.. O_o;
This tutorial is based for Flash mx, the other versions might have their tools in a diffrent place, so you have to look for them then X__X
Unless you want to make

Chapter 1- "One of Many"
Ránëv dropped the stiletto knife on the floor, calmly watching the little rivulets of crimson run down her arm and drop from the end of her delicate fingertips. The drops made perfect little circles upon the hardwood floor of her bedroom, perfect little tears. She clenched her jaw, though not from any kind of pain, and leaned back on her bed, careful not to get any of the scarlet on her perfect white quilt. Her jade green eyes she then turned to the ceiling which was decorated in a hundred little glow-in-the-dark stars all arranged to mirror the shapes of constellations.
She hadn't done it. No more than she had done so last time. Every time she tried, her mother's words echoed in her mind, softly spoken on the day she died in the hospital. Her voice had been soft, and an angelic smile had graced the woman's face, making her appear ten years younger and without a single care in the world. "The hardest thing about life, Rain, my angel, is living i

Wings of Change - Chrysalis TFPetra let out a soft sigh as she sat in her bedroom, looking out of the window as she looked at the sky.

"So BORED..." She groaned, tapping impatiently against the nearby wall. "Come on, there has to be something interesting to do... something that'll be a fun change of pace... but what can be done? Ohhhh..." She sighed again, falling back onto her bed, crossing her arms. "Come on! I'd give anything to change this boring life of mine!"
'Anything?', a cold, disjointed voice called out from seemingly nowhere. 'Did I hear you right when you said that?'
"What the?" Petra jumped up, reaching over to her bedside as she picked up a paperweight. "Who's there? Show yourself right now, and you better not be a thief!"
The voice chuckled, ethereal eyes cast upon Petra. 'There's no point in trying to look for me... I

To Never Return
He was my immortal love.
Eternal light fed his veins,
And he gave himself to my fangs.
For that he was a tortured angel.
Like a plague who has found it's prey,
My craving could not be quenched,
For I was a vampire captivated,
Undead, yet dying in his arms.
I drank deeply of his soul,
Devouring his flesh,
I drew him deeper into my abyss.
And with every bite, his light withered.
And with me, his wings delved deeper.
And the more I consumed,
The more we were torn asunder.
We were both lost.
I was to die.
He was to never return…

Rarity was crushed. Spike was like a completely different pony from the little dragon she knew. Staring at the empty doorway where he once stood, tears started to slowly fall down her cheeks. She sniffed and thought about everything he said. 'He's right, I'm a horrible mare, what was I thinking? Of course he wouldn't forgive me.' Soon Rarity's few tears turned to crying then uncontrollable sobbing.
All of Rarity's friends, save one, embraced the crying mare tightly. "Don't you worry bout anything sugar cube, Pinkie and I are gonna go talk to that boy and see if we can't smooth things over. You hang in there." Applejack told her.
"I think it was really mean what you said about Spike but he said some really mean things too. It makes

"Let me go in first Rarity, just to see if he's okay?"
Rarity simply nodded and watched as Twilight quietly slipped through the door. Rarity knew that she should have just sat there and waited but she couldn't resist the temptation to press her ear against the door and listen in on Twilight's conversation with Spike. 'I'm sorry Twilight.' She said to herself.
"Hey Spike, how are you doing?" She said to the purple stallion sitting on her old bed.
"Oh, hi Twilight; I'm okay I guess, except for being stuck in here. Where's Rarity?" he asked. "Pinkie said you and her would come up together."
The purple unicorn smiled a bit when she heard the concern in his voice. "I'm glad to see you're not mad at her an

They're silent ya know?
Those graves I mean
I curl up and cry in front of them
But they just stare with their granite eyes
The souls under them are restless
Especially after listening to me cry for days
To them my pain means nothing
They say "To be dead is far worse."
I guess that's true too
I cannot fully agree with those who seem wise
For what's the use of a young agile body...
When the soul's been dead so long?
I sit and stare at them so long
I feel like part of them now
My kneese are embedded in the earth
My eyes are so dry they bleed
What do I do now?
Can I continue without you?
Please help lift me from their gaze
I need you, please guide me
Peal me away from their grasp
Lift me from my grave
Show me the way to paradise
Give me wings so I can join you there

(But Not to Love)
I spent most of my life
Training to become what I am
But then again,
So did you...
Our training was very different,
But we are both respectively unbeatable
Too bad that's probably the one thing
That made our relationship so impossible
To protect and serve, but not to love
And you know I don't have much to offer;
I couldn't love you the way you want because
It's not in my character to want to see you suffer.
I gave my position and my honor, to stay at your side
God knows how much I've risked in my past
I broke all but one vow to protect you
Let us say it was you that broke this last
For you I have killed a man in cold blood,
Fought one to twenty and came through,
No army on earth could possibly wound me
as much as one cold word from you
To protect and serve, but not to love
And you know I don't have much to

to hollow footsteps as you walk away
Because I'll only ever be the type of girl
You pour your heart out to, and when you're feeling better
you'll just leave behind
Being alone never used to be a problem
But now as I wrap myself in dreams
And sew a fragile blanket from the stars
Maybe I'm just finding
I'm so tired of being nothing
So while you still need me I'll be everything to you
And while you tie my words around your world
I'll hold your hand and dry your tears
And when you're standing on two feet again
I won't cry when you leave me here alone
I've grown accustomed to people walking in
and walking out of my heart like I don't feel at all
But the truth is that I feel every word you say and every breath you take
So much stronger than I will ever feel my own
and there is nothing scares me more
I do not whisper a word as I watch someone walk away again

In the late hours of the night, a mighty thunderstorm raged outside the Carousel Boutique. Rarity, the store's sole proprietor, lied awake in her bed gazing at a picture of herself with a specific purple earth pony stallion with a green mane. Casually, she looked at the heart shaped frame next to it on her nightstand. A photograph of a small young green and purple dragon was held within it. 'Oh Spike, why do you always seem to be out of town when I need you the most.' She thought to herself.
The blue eyed unicorn mare quickly sat up in her bed when she heard the door to her bedroom slowly creek open. A white unicorn filly with green eyes and a curly purple and pink mane and tail, poked her head into the room.

Chapter 1: Sunrise
And what a beautiful sunrise it was. The luminescent rays of light and warmth beamed down upon Ponyville. The sky ablaze with a fiery morning aura that is near impossible to describe. Hues of red, orange, and a bit of violet smear across the sky, much to the enjoyment of Applejack, who was up before sunrise to start her work for the day at Sweet Apple Acres.
Applebloom attempted to sleep in this morning, having gotten permission from Applejack the previous night to do so, yet failed. She was a morning pony, just like her big sister. It WAS a Sunday, and since most of the apple deliveries for the week had gone out last night, there wasn't that much work to do around the farm today. Mainly cleaning up and making sure all of the trees were being properly taken care of; a task Big Mac and Applejack could handle easily on their own.
Applebloom immediately became lost in th
