They rode upon the backs of thundering horses
for faith had unleashed a terrible beast
These men would offer their souls in service
to the dark unholy priests...
"To what end do we serve our Lord and Master
is justice not the ultimate form of faith?
Should we not stand and fight in his name
to cleanse the Earth of this heathen waste!"
It was these orators, chaplains of faith;
men of the cloth who bore a fire
They lit their brothers with impassioned speeches
fueled by their own desire...
They taught their followers that blood was faith
and devotion was found at the edge of a blade
"Blessed is the mind too small for doubt
for the faithful shall never be swayed..."
The men who accepted them, though pure at heart
would soon be eaten by Lust and Greed
For Wrath had become a norm of existence
and death became a Templar's creed...
But woe betide the man who slaughters
for his soul shall be forever stained
And no penance may ever remove this grief;

We werewolves live as tyrant beings;

Until all that's left is sludge.
Lost alone in horrid pain;
Through empty days we trudge.
But we have learnt a secret way
To stop our bitter end...

Yet still I am breathing;

Cold like what was left of soul,
Made of all the life you stole.
Walk divine but made of sin,
Worm of hatred squrim within.
Sin of lust and sin of pride,
Lash the tongue that last has lied.
Yours was silver with a promise,
Kiss of death and then you vomit.
Burning bile of ugly treason,
No one else can know the reason.
Left a soul behind to burn;
You are the reason I have turned...
On this cold and endless night...
When I'm finally pierced by the light...
And I awaken from this hell...

Alive and again oh do I dare?
To give this heart and to lay it bare.

Where the entrance smelled of rotting flesh.
Putrid and vile, bloated with maggots;

I avoided choking and steeled my will
For the mouth was a facade to deter the weak.
But the inside was opulent, rich and vibrant;
It matched the prey which I had to seek...
She sat in the center, confident and calm
Displayed on a throne of solid gold.
She wore a dress of beautiful silk
Red in colour, and very bold...
Her scent reminded me of gentle flowers
It soothed the soul to behold this sight.
She appeared in the form of an ancient goddess;
Bathed in a pillar of mystical light...
Do you like what you see, my dearest hunter?
She cooed in musical twit.
I'm afraid I do, my fairest lady
I'll admit that I liked her a bit.

Coming close without a hint of fear...
She licked her lips and smiled at me

In the forest we are champions
In the night we rule the lands.
The hunter becomes the hunted
And dies by our hands.
Fangs will pierce his fragile throat
His flesh is torn to shreds.
It is the fear and scent of death
That the hunter truly dreads.
But we alone shall know no fear
For by the moon we shall be blessed.
Draped in Luna's loving embrace;
We bet our life with every breath.

Wetting themselves in fright.
We appear as snarling punishers
In the glory of the night.
Here in the deepest shadows
Where the light will never reach.
We silence the mouths of humans
For we tire of what they preach:

At first like a flower;
One beautiful piece at a time
Until the moment shatters,
And like a star you implode.
Only an empty void remains.

I mutter to myself
As I slowly make my winding way
Through onyx and ash,
The forbidding unbidden
It's gleaming black shattered
Razor sharp shredding bleakness
Spreading out ahead,
Before the cold fading sunset,
"I think this place is in my head"
I said, Slowly treading
The dreaded glassy black plain
Of ragged razor rocks.
But what is that
Off in the distance?
In the midst of this miserable
Misbegotten waste, I see...
A small shining beacon!
Something fresh but far
Across the bleak miasma
Of frozen geographic tragedy,
I see a stunted tree.
I was far flung and haggard
But compared to the caustic surroundings,
The shredding shining hating eternity,
That fragment of fading foliage-
Of color, light and sound
Was an elusive beauty.
I had to run
And I had to scream
As I surged through eternity.
The onyx began it's terrible task-
Flaying me, flesh falling like
Soft comets of crimson
Staining the grey ash red;
Blood fell in the onyx plain

Violet and blue and orange
And all the colors are so strange,
New shades, something new,
Life filling in the gaps,
The experience of breaking
Facilitating the resurrection.
The only beauty I see is in broken people,
The flowers grow through the cracks.
Black HoleThere is a pulsating secretBlack Hole in Free Verse More Like This
At the dark center of the universe.
It throbs and beats,
Pounds and weeps,
And it shrieks to be found.
The dark center of the universe
Because it is grotesque.
It is a malformed dream,
And sickly incest.
Begging for recognition.
I can hear it's raspy, pained breathing,
Coarse and wanting,
Cold and haunting.
The dark center of the universe
WhisperHave you ever whisperedWhisper in Free Verse More Like This
Into the dark
For the sake of whispering?
Have you ever wondered
About your life
For the sake of wondering?
Have you ever wandered
Around in the night
For the sake of wandering?
Life is not reasonable,
Nor does it care;
Its certainly not logical,
And it has never been fair.
So perhaps you should whisper,
You could scream?
Why just sleep,
When you can dream?
You can fly!
Theres a difference between story
And a well told lie.
When you are cut, you bleed,
When you hurt, you need,
When you are alone, you cry
When you dont live, you die.
A Happy EndingThe sun is blacked out,A Happy Ending in Free Verse More Like This
As the sulfurous gas blankets the sky.
We are hidden
In our houses, in our shelters, in our lovers' arms.
And we wait.
Impact is imminent,
And the ground begins to shudder.
Apocalypse, fire from the skies.
For every one of us who has ever lived,
As we hunch together in our futile defenses,
We stop and think of who we truly love.
Our feelings become desperate,
And we whisper to the other how we feel.
The layers of society are ripped away,
And the gentle core exposed,
Our instincts come to fore, and we are real again.
Lovers arm in arm, lying together in the dark,
They exchange their last kiss,
She whispers to him
"If there is an afterlife,
It'll be this I truly miss"
And they envelop their bodies into each other,
And surrender to one last embrace.
A mother cradles her newborn son,
She whispers into his ear that he's lucky,
For he's the one to face the end,
And he's the only pure one on the planet.
Unique, and with no time for society to spoil

thinking of me in the darkest nights,
to know someone truly cares,
when I turn out the lights...
when passion is felt,
with a simple word,
when a silent look
can even be heard...
that feeling of utter joy,
that make a woman and man
feel like a girl and boy,
that love that reverses time
when I am yours
and you are mine...
My heart has been broken,
from words unpoken,
my soul cries
from countless lies...
Yet still my heart desires,
love's burning fires,
my soul needs
these tempting dreams...

I spun around, but empty darkness greeted me. "Who's there?!?" I yelled, trying to keep my voice from shaking, "What do you want fro

I stared at him in shock.
"Shadow.....teaching me.........? He'll kill me!" "Um Tails," I said quietly, "I don't think this is a very good idea..." "Amy, I think this is a great idea. I'm sure that Shadow would make a wonderful teacher. After all, he probably knows the most about chaos energy than anyone else. And it wouldn't hurt to have more fighting-capable people around here." he replied. I glanced over at Shadow, who appeared to be enjoying himself. Although he hadn't said anything, there was this look in his eye that made him look like someone had given him food. I let out a deep sigh. "Alright. Fine. One condition though." I stuck out my hand. "Chaos Emerald. So were even." He looked at me. "You know that you'll get one eventually after some training right?" "Yes, but I don't trust you. By that time who knows what could have happened. Anyway, I'm going to go get some brea
The Kiss - Sam Makes a Move On Dean's GirlTravelling around with Sam and Dean meant that you were all in close proximity with each other a lot of the time. Of course that didn't matter with Dean, but you often caught Sam giving you a strange looks, but they were so brief that you couldn't be sure you’d seen them.The Kiss - Sam Makes a Move On Dean's Girl in Drama More Like This
You had all been hunting and turned in for the night at the Motel, where Dean decided to take a shower.
He kissed your lips softly and when he pulled away you noticed Sam giving you that look again.
Sam sat in the corner, looking for another case on his laptop no doubt. The silence was beginning to get to you so you decided to go for a walk.
‘I’m going to get something to drink, want anything Sam?’ you asked, without looking at him.
‘No, I’m okay thanks.’
The cold hit you and you pulled your coat tighter as you walked up the way to the little vending machine. Deciding to take your time, you read each of the labels slowly.
Suddenly you could hear footsteps behind you, you turne
Broken - Dean x Reader‘Look (y/n) I promise that you will be fine. We’ve just got to lure the demon out, so we can gank the bitch. Okay?’ Dean asked, looking down into your eyes.Broken - Dean x Reader in Drama More Like This
You nodded. You would easily sell your soul for this man; although you would never tell him that. Your hands were shaking and you realised you were terrified, but once you looked into Dean’s eyes you knew you couldn’t let him down.
You entered that abandoned warehouse, slowly. Your actions were cautious. You were supposed to attract the demon’s attention, make it come out of hiding while the boys covered you.
So when you walked in, you tried miserably to hide your fear. You walked through, but when nothing happened you turned to the boys thinking maybe something had gone wrong.
Suddenly you heard a crash and loud footsteps right behind you. You turned just in time to feel a hit to the jaw. You fell to the ground as the demon jumped on top of you.
You twisted, trying to throw him off but he grabbe
Broken - Sherlock x Reader (Chapter Two)You’d fallen asleep after about an hour and Sherlock stayed awake, silently seething at himself. He should have told you, or taken you with him: or anything. Anything was better that this, than Mycroft.Broken - Sherlock x Reader (Chapter Two) in Drama More Like This
He wasn’t sure when you woke up, but when he looked down at you again your eyes were open, staring at nothing.
‘What was the reason that brought you back?’ you asked, playing with the collar on his shirt.
Half his mouth pulled up into small smile, but his eyes were sad.
‘There’s a bomb threat on London, Mycroft summoned me,’ he said hesitantly, not really wanting to mention Mycroft again.
‘I’m still angry at you,’ you told him, but pulling yourself closer to him.
‘I know,’ he smiled and kissed your hair.
You heard your phone buzz across the room and you stood to retrieve it. You could feel Sherlock’s inquisitive gaze on your back.
When you simply replied and put it away again, Sherlock sighed.
‘It was My
Bad Day - Dean x ReaderIt’d been one of those hunts; they seemed to be happening a lot lately. You had all done the best you could, Sam had said. Well, it seemed like your best just wasn’t good enough anymore because people were dying.Bad Day - Dean x Reader in Drama More Like This
So you decided to drown your sorrows. There was a bar, just up the road from the motel you were staying in, that you went to.
The place had quite a few people in but wasn’t too crowded so you found a seat at the bar. When you signalled for a drink, you caught the eye of a man sitting across the bar.
He raised his drink to you and winked. You responded and downed your drink in one, signalling for another. After a couple of drinks, you saw Sam and Dean enter the bar looking around for you.
‘Please just go away,’ you sighed as they found you.
The boys listened to you for once and went and sat down at a table. You knocked back the drinks as fast as the bartender could serve them to you and soon enough you were drunk.
Your admirer from across the bar a

You’d been introduced to them through your god father Bobby and you’d been with them ever since; but throughout the years, not once had the brothers treated you like anything other than family, until now.
Dean had always looked out for you, like any hunter would, but he had never looked at you like that before. A look full of such longing, it made your heart melt.
It had been late one night, the three of you sitting up drinking in the motel. Dean had been acting different all evening. Sam fell asleep quickly, until it was just the two of you left.
‘What would you say, if I told you I love you?’ Dean asked, as he passed you the bottle and gave you that look.
‘I would say, that I think you have had too much to drink,’ you said, trying to not let the words reach your heart.
‘It’s not the drink talking (y/n),’ he said sulkil

So when you felt Dean’s arms wrap tightly around your waist and pull you as close as possible to his chest, you instantly felt better. Dean would kiss your forehead and stroke your hair, whispering that he was here and he was never leaving, until you finally succumbed back to sleep; with Dean’s warmth keeping the monsters at bay, if only just for the rest of the night.

He sits in his cell,
And he lays on his bed.
Covers his head and closes his eyes.
Dean lies down on the bed, tired out of his mind. He’d downed at bottle of whiskey over the course of the night, but even that wouldn’t drown out the memories.
You had been Dean’s everything, his light in the darkness, but now all of his stars had gone out and he was left alone.
It had been something so simple, so ordinary, that he hadn’t even had his guard up; He hadn’t protected you.
He sees a smoking gun,
And the coward, he ran.
And in his arms is the bleeding
Love of his life.
The man, the ordinary average man, had just shot you. No reason. No warning. Just the quick pull of a trigger and two lives were ruined. The memories rushed back to Dean and he could see your face behind his eyes.
He had heard the shot and turned to see you, with a frown on your face, until the realisation set in. The killer ran for it and Dean ran f

She's got a way of making things okay

Dean was travelling miles across the country trying to make sure that he made it home in time for Christmas with you. He couldn’t bear to be away from you for any length of time, it made his chest tighten and ache to even think about you not being around.
So, because of this Dean had been travelling for hours, across days and nights, through towns he’d never heard the names of, across borders that were too far from home, just so he could hold you in his arms and get rid of this aching.
Dean knew that no matter what was wrong you had a way of making everything feel okay again.

And things we say when we're together

Dean woke up in the middle of the night and glanced over at (y/n)’s sleeping form. She was sleeping on her stomach and Dean gently caressed her back, through one of his shirts that she loved to wear.
He smiled sadly at her. He didn’t feel like he could stay with her any longer, he felt like he was failing her. She promised him that things were fine, but he just didn’t feel like he could be what she needed.
She dreamt of fairy tales and castles and princes, but Dean didn’t feel like he was her prince. He climbed out of bed, rubbing his eyes and went to the fridge to get a beer.
He perched on the table watching (y/n)’s figure rise and fall with each breath.
The moon is the only friend I have outside

You sighed, things were always the same with Dean. You loved him and his heart was yours, you knew that, but it often seemed like his head was somewhere else; probably fighting some monster.
The night started to draw to a close and you had already started on your fifth bottle of wine, the wine you were supposed to share with Dean. You’d already changed for bed and were wearing one of Dean’s shirts, but you were regretting the decision.
You curled up on the sofa, eyes brimming with tears. The alcohol was making you weepy, but you didn’t stop drinking. The clock struck midnight.
‘Merry Christmas,’ you whispered to yourself. Sometime after that you fell asleep, the tear tracks drying on your face.
When you woke, you were hopeful for a brief second, but there wa
