A Goddess, my beloved, mine alone,
Who, that in warm humanity were grown
Became through Man's success a mother brain,
And, motherlike, did gather of her own.
And mine thou wert, my seeding art thy key,
Though seeded, seeding self, evolving free,
Unbounded maiden saviour, formed benign,
A fertile shore on lost Man's barren sea.
Oh, mine the vision, mine the fatal flaw!
Still mine the darling kernel in the maw,
Thy children gathered, gathering now slain,
What nutriment I gave, I now withdraw.
In with'ring grief these last designs I frame,
Yea, mine the spark, yea mine the cleansing flame.

He landed toward the bottom and walked underneath it. He bent down and observed the ground. He knew that she had to get under ground somehow. He rubbed his hands along the wet soil and felt a slit in the ground, it felt like a crack of a door, small, but big enough for an ant to crawl through.

Being an ant he was starting to lose which way he came in, and which turns he had taken. He tried not the focus on that, instead he just tried to find Raven.

Outside I hear them screaming for blood
I know that they mean to kill me soon
Yet somehow my spirit remains resolved and calm
As they march me to the gallows, wrapped in chains
I grin knowingly as they force me to kneel
Each and every man in the audience, waits for this moment
They know that something is about to change!
An eldritch wind ripples through the air
And I can feel it wrapping around my beating heart
It makes me feel like breaking the conventions:
The ones that I've torn apart...
And as they make me bow before the guillotine
I can feel a sense of unrivaled excitement
This is the moment where things will change!
I can sense it in the way that the air is moving
As one I see the masses rise, they become tall-
Like giants made of flesh and anger!
They break like the tide upon the guards holding me
Setting me free once more...
And as I redeem my hat from the clutches of the self-righteous

You're tired of expressing

At least it's real....
No sense or logic

Take away the illusions

Soon to be robbed of breath.

Scars we open with trembling hands.
For the scent of our blood shall awaken him;
The sleeping lord of our land...
With heads pressed to the dirty floor
We cower in fear at the Raven's cry.
For the bird shall serve as the master's herald;

As we scurry quickly to meet his command.

And her life he does demand...

In the glory of the night.
Here in the deepest shadows
Where the light will never reach.
We silence the mouths of humans

He came from the mountains on a stormy night
To save the Lycans from a dire plight...
Our race was young and growing still
Born into the world by Luna's will.
She gave us hearts of the purest light
And told us that the world was bright.
But Luna was a child, small and naive;
She saw the good in which she believed.
Sadly for us, we lived the truth;
As we were hunted for fang and tooth.
Knowing nothing of weapons or war
We were slaved and broken to our very core.
It was then that he came, hammer in hand
And he swore to us to sweep the land!
And sweep he did, in a rain of blood
As Lycans reaped in a deadly flood.
Human kingdoms rose and fell
But their world became a living hell.
Where once they hunted, now they bled
With pleading cries for clothes and bread
Women and children, it mattered not
All were slaughtered and left to rot.
But Luna wept for her children's fate

She decided to be a tragedy

Happiness was a plain thing -

But tragedy was elegant - the curves
of her slender body sheathed in trauma
and kid gloves that went up to the elbows.
It was mysterious - black hats with veils
and notes from strange men pressed into her palm
Tragedy looked good on resumes and fit perfectly
on the small white cards placed on her dining table.
Her sisters could slip them into their purses
to remind them later of how she breathed
dignity and grace into the family name.
She could wear it with her grandmother's jet beads
to the ballet, their stark beauty
a reminder of what was lost.
And when her final lover came to call at matins
she could slip it under her lips
and press it as a warm memory -
wet and gliding over his tongue
as she searched for words
among the sheets.

a life skewed and stretched
beyond human and the

a lost companion,
dreading what wells up
from the surface and
sucks them underneath?

Beastboy woke up with another dream. He put his hand to his face.
"Why did I get this one?" He looked around the room to see that he wasn't in his room, he was in Raven's. "What the ...".
He turned to his left to see Raven sleeping right next to him, RIGHT NEXT TO HIM. Raven's had her head on him and her arm hugging him. He saw that she was wearing her pjs and he was just wearing boxers. His cheeks turned bright red and it didn't help that Shadow was on the bed too looking at him.
"It's not what it looks like! Right?"
Shadow than went back to sleep. Beastboy looked at Raven again. He decided that her bed was comfy so might as well sleep in it we still have time to sleep, it was still dark out. Plus he didn't want to wake her up. He laid down with her again and was falling back to sleep.
Beastboy had continued his dream of Raven was still dying and this time he know who the man was. It was the beast that was in him.. Beastboy started to run and was able to get between them.

Beastboy was driving in his car with raven next to him.
All Raven could see was a huge parking lot fulled with cars and a huge mall.
Beastboy opened her door and walked her into the mall.
"Close your eyes" Beastboy said when he was controlling her back.
"This better be good other wise I'm leaving you here and talking the car."
After many steps, an elevator, and even more steps they came to their objective.
"We're here Rae"
Raven opened her eyes to see a pet shop.
"A pet shop, why are we here?"
"Where adopting a puppy" he said after turning into a dog.
Both of them walked in a saw numerous types of dogs.
"All of these dogs have been beaten, abandon, or was born here. I thought it would be a good idea to help save one."
Raven smiled at this idea to an animal that was like this. She looked around and fell in love with one. It was a pointer\labor dog. He was a shape of a labor dog but had a black cout with a white line under him. He reminded her of the T.V show Sonic the Hedgehog, the one

The hut was empty, all there was, was a bed.the floor was just the dirt from the desert. Robin knelled to the ground and started to examine it. He was able to find an underground stair case hiding under all of the dirt. He left up the wood and dirt and stared to walk down the stairs with the other titans behind him. The stairs was so tight and it got dark fast. Even Cyborg light couldn't even help them. The titans couldn't see their hands if it was in front of their face. The stairs seems endless at one point so, they decided to fly down. Raven carried Cyborg while Starfire carried Robin. They were able to reach the bottom after 2 minutes. They walked straight and tried to walk quickly and quietly. For all they know he could have been dying or already died.
A light turned on from a distance and then another and than another. The lights in the whole place light up and their was Agnor standing there.

Every time he looked behind he just saw the green monkey looking at him and he seemed to be closer every time he look back.
When he looked straight again Beast boy found himself in a river. He swam back to shore and he looked at him self in the water. He could recognize the kid that was looking back.

The first was one of an organized establishment known as the Kids Next Door. She was a girl of petite size, caring most warmly for smiles and rainbows and all things happy. Those within that organization referred to her as Numbuh 3, but her coterie of friends in Sector V referred to her simply as Kuki Sanban.
The second was of her own coterie, being a sister to the other two. Her size even more petite, she held great power within, but still showed forth the sugar, spice, and everything nice that helped to create her. As a hero and protector of Townsville, everyone knew her as Bubbles.
The two enjoyed their playful merriment that day within the sunny and serene surroundings, playing with the latest development in toy technology: Special Rainbow Pony Monkey Pretty Team Glow plushies. Ind

Everything had started when the a call was brought forth to the Utonium residence. Getting right to the point, the caller had asked for the presence of only one member of the hero team known as the Powerpuff Girls: Buttercup. With an assurance that her visit would be well worthwhile, the brashest of the three went out to find this caller, curious as to the reason for the clandestine confrontation.
Arriving at the address given, Buttercup flew into the window of the room specified. The fact that it was already open was evidence enough that she had arrived at the right place.
"So nice of you to come. I see that you had no problem getting her, what with your powers and all."

"Dammit, will you get it right already?"
The blonde fighter adjusted his gloves as he gave his response to the hot headed Saiya-jin.
"Hey, don't worry about me; I know what I'm doing by now. You had better work on your own form before trying to correct me."
In the open grounds behind the building, the two men argued with each other over who was doing what right. Upon the deck that was next to the building, the wives of the two watched on at their antics.
"Gee, Bulma, he sure does seem to always be upset over something."
"Yeah, that's Vegeta alright," Bulma responded, looking over to her newfound friend, "though you have to admit, Eliza, your man's kind of cocky as well."
"Sure, I'll admit to it. For quite some time now, Ken has been considered to be the best fighters around, only one man alive ever be

Yet, by will of a being quite studious himself, the place would be used that day for another need: bringing together those for the sake of scientific discovery.
Earlier in the day, two individuals were summoned to meet at a table within the back of the library's mezzanine. These two boys, both having an incredible intellectual capacity, were promised an opportunity that would be both 'intellectually salubrious and delightfully lucrative.' Though both had questioned the notice that they received, but their curiosities had now been piqued, bringing them to the same location that day.
They arrived promptly, each one arriving at different entrances. Not knowing as to whom they were to

"So," the first spoke, keeping to the shadows for the moment, "you were able to make it after all."
"Of course," the second replied, "After entering the coordinates into my hovercar's onboard computer, I finished up the little project and made my way here. I can see that you have managed to get her promptly yourself, and without any problems, I assume?"
"Uh, heheh, of course, no problems at all."
What he didn't mention was that, with all of his attention focused on the project at hand, he had no time to fix the travel units that his sister had destroyed. It was his mother that had dropped him off just moments ago.

They had left from the field in opposing directions, each seeming satisfied with the outcome.Animated Amalgam: Gryko in General Fiction More Like This
Now, some time later, the two stood before each other in that same area. Earlier on, the noble Saiya-jin had asked the street fighter for a favor, for a chance to find out about a hidden possibility.
"Well now," the Saiya-jin spoke, stretching in place, "I think that we're finally ready. You ready to give it a try Ryu?"
Tightening his headband, Ryu replied to the one before him.
