Spitfire Week: 3 AMI pushed open the heavy double doors that lead to the parking lot from the movie theater and shivered immediately from the warm summer breeze that blew across my skin. Twisting my neck from side to side until I heard the tell tale pop that said I sat for too long in the same position, I started on my way toward my truck.Spitfire Week: 3 AM in Romance More Like This
As I approached the massive white machine, I heard a voice calling me from another direction, "Artemis? Is that you?" the slight husky tone to the voice sent a shiver down my spine and something tickled in the back of my head; it sounded familiar to me...
I turned to get a better look at the body who held the voice and was stunned instantly. No way. That could NOT be HIM...could it? Christ, when did he get so damned sexy? He was not that tall the last time I saw him, was he? No, no, certainly not. I would have paid more attention to him if he were.
Before me stood Wally West, a boy I knew in high school that had been the smart sciency nerd in school who helped me pass

Artemis jolted from her sleep as Wally's voice whispered around her. Frantically, she looked around, a flash of red and yellow assaulted her eyes, but she dismissed it quickly. Her mind was playing tricks on her. Wally was dead. Had been for months. Get your shit together, Crock. He's never coming back.
Shivers ran over her skin as she blinked back the tears. Closing her eyes against the images of him in his stealth mode costume as he swung her up in his arms and kissed her for the first time. Sobbing quietly to herself, Artemis mumbled, “No kidding...” before she drifted back into a Wally filled sleep.

As the sun came up, Artemis dragged her lazy ass out of bed. She had to go meet the rest of the team. She still had a role to play, maybe not as Artemis anymore, but as Tigress. It was still an important role anyway. Nightwing would be pissed if she showed up late again.

She smiled to herself as she set her picnic basket down. Supposed to be meeting a friend here, she sat down and waited patiently. She started humming to herself a sweet, sad ballad that had been stuck in her head for days now.
Lost in thought, she looked up, seeing a familiar shape coming up and smiled, "Oh, my God, it's you. I never thought I'd see you here!" She smiled as she spoke. It wasn't the friend she was expecting but it was a nice surprise.
Raising to her knees, she smiled again, "Looks like all is well, I see. I'm happy for you." She grinned and blushed, "Oh, me? Well, I'm not gonna lie."
And she wasn't. Lately, everything had been going perfect for her. Training had been going great. She was the top of her class now. She was on good terms with all of her friends. "I go

Today had been a long day.

She had no idea that when she asked her fire loving boyfriend to go to the lake with her and her family it would have been so incredible. Normally, he hated anything having to do with water, but he had quickly agreed to accompany her and she was ecstatic.
They had rode up front of her father's speed boat and rode the waves like they were professional surfers. The only bad part of that were the bruises she had on her arm from hanging onto the side of the boat as the front end ascended quickly.

She shoved the piece of paper into her pocket. No, dammit! Why was he doing this to her? Why now? Groaning loudly, she banged her head against the wall of the stall and walked out, grumbling under her breath about hot-head boys who thought they were God's gift to women.
Running her fingers through her hair, she made her way to her locker and emptied her bag just to have to refill it with the appropriate books.

Relaxing a minuscule, he took a deep breath, "I'm sorry for what my people did to yours. To your mother, more specifically. The Fire Nation took mine, too." His voice broke as he spoke.

As she stood in the middle of the room, amidst Wally and who he was as a person, as a hero, as a lover, as a friend, tears threatened her gray eyes. She could almost feel her boyfriend in the room, wrapping his arms around her body and rocking her against his chest. Unable to keep them away anymore, the traitorous tears rolled down her pale cheeks.
Dick was worried about her, but she cut him off. She wanted to enjoy this moment. To soak up Wally and his being. “I love you, too,” she whispered into the empty air as she closed her eyes against the onslaught of uncontrollable pain.

Green watched as Leaf jumped and played with her Pokémon. The girl twirled and spun around, mouth bursting a laugh or two at the company of her beloved team. The young man, on the other hand, merely sat on a bench, watching at the girl he called ‘rival’. His lips smirked to see her, radiant and filled with smiles. It was a rare sight for Green, considering the girl was always stoic around him or anyone else.
Suddenly, the wind blew a harsh breeze, sending anything flying about – and Leaf’s short skirt wasn’t an exception.
He saw her panty; a bright green with darker shades on its edges. His green eyes were wide as plates, mouth almost dropping to see the accidental show. Quickly his face collected heat, increasing up to his forehead.
Before he could say anything, however, Green heard a perfectly clear growl on his left side. ‘Close-’ Phantom, Leaf’s Charizard snarled as she crouched beside the flushed brunette,

Feet walking toward the refrigerator, Silver opened it and took out an egg. He scoffed arrogantly, palm cozily holding the hard shell. "This will be easy."
Switching the grill on, Silver placed a small pot on top of the lighting fire and poured some oil on it. As he did, his mind wandered to the sleeping Kotone in their room. For some apparent reason, Silver decided to surprise her in making breakfast. He knew Kotone did most of the cooking. It wasn't that she was ordered to.
No. What annoyed Silver was the fact that she didn't believe him when it came to him cooking.
An egoistic scoff wheezed through gritted teeth. "Saying I can't cook. Please." Huffing his chest in pride, Silver raised his hand slightly and gently cracked the egg on the pot's end.

No mortal man can stand
Against the Giants of the Frost.
For they bear the strength of ages
And the wisdom of the lost.
When first we came upon them
We were scattered by their might.
The fury of a Giant
Was a truly fearsome sight...
Cowering in fear
And waiting to be eaten.
We knew in our hearts
That we were utterly beaten.
Salvation lay behind us
In a death of blood and steel.
Yet fate would always turn
On a twisted crooked wheel.
For we found a cave of ancients
Bearing symbols of the knife.
It led us to a forge
That demanded our life.
Fourteen brothers sacrificed
Into the flames they went...
Their flesh became the metal
As the bellows began to vent.
It yielded me a hammer
Made of grinding bone.
Yet when I swung this weapon
It crushed the toughest stone.
My life was paid in full that day;
With fourteen brothers dead...
I sailed alone for home
With a snarling giant's head.

Yet as soon as he had seen me, the hunchback's eyes glazed over;
He appeared to forget about our presence...
I had to admit, I was very curious
And I wished to move in close so I could inspect him.
Reaching out with my hand to clasp his own;
I was assailed by horrid visions.
In one instance I was a collector of night soil,
Abuse hurled at me like stones and I the accepting target.

Numbing my senses and dulling the mind;

And as she grows colder,
Blazing with rage,
Her hatred will harden
And swallow her whole.
This shield is a mask
She wears for the world.
On one side, purple,
A catlike smile,
A grin she's grown.
And a rose, of course,
She hates herself
For what she's done,
Who she is,
How she's handled hate.
Who she's hurt,
How she's hurting,
And what she's doing now...
Trained to trust
When she was young;
Older now, she learns again
That what they taught
Was meant to tame,
And any truth
Has been betrayed.
How many lessons
Does it take to learn?
Trust none, love none,
Be never betrayed again.
No one can love her,
For no one can know her,
No one can see her
Except a few far away...
There's a distance between her
And the rest of the world.
SunshineWithin the womb of wonderland,Sunshine in Free Verse More Like This
There lay a little star.
Its light was dim,
Near dark and dead,
So none could see it shine.
And as this starling sailed
Through space and time and life,
She sought to be seen and heard;
But whatever light once lay there
Was snuffed and stored away.
She tried a thousand guises on
As she hid inside her shadows;
She mimed a million masks she'd seen,
And forced them on her face.
But not a single illusion
Had the light to illumine
The shroud of fog surrounding.
In unnatural darkness, all alone,
The star shriveled down in despair.
Her cloudy cloak was stormy smoke,
As she shrank into stillness,
In the fog of her fears...
But then a voice in the void
Called out to her there,
And said she would shine again.
"I am all around you," it softly said.
"I am the space that endless expands,
That can stroke your starry wings;
A shadowy shelter, no cloak nor choke,
That yet may keep you safe.
I could be your universal,
Your architect of dreams;
And all I ask

More times than I can count.
Questioning my sanity,
Despising all I see...
Beneath the pressure
Of perceptions and expectations.
You returned to my life
When I needed you most,
Providing the gift
Of someone to talk to.
And then you showed me
A place I could go
Where acceptance was natural
And friends could be found.
You're the only MeltDown
I don't mind meeting.
In fact, without you,
I might be dead today;
Or tomorrow, or later,
Sometime soon enough.

Whatever it was,
You made it go away.
I'm happy to live now,
Pleased and proud.
We don't talk today
Like we did for a while...
But I think of you often,
And thank you in my heart.
For now, we're both busy,
But once the stress lessens,
I hope we can talk like before.
Of course I know
That everything changes,
And life moves on unhindered.
But you're part of my life,
A wonderful friend,
Someone I trust and care for.
Like I told you once,
I want the best for you,
A House of RedA drop of crimsonA House of Red in Free Verse More Like This
Trickles down the wall.
The paint is peeling
In a house built of blood.
Doorways lead to ruby rooms,
Each one filled with scarlet skulls.
The heat is stifling
As you enter this house.
A trembling thought
Says to stay away.
But you press on through smoke,
Through sulphurous fumes,
And find yourself standing
By a great iron oven.
This strikes you as odd,
But you don't know why.
You open the oven
(It is warm to the touch),
And inside you find a ring.
You pick it up;
You turn it over
In your clumsy hands.
It is gold,
Or something like it,
Forged in flame for fingers.
You choose to wear it.
You will wish you hadn't.
A baby screams in another room,
And you swiftly rush to help it.
When you throw this door wide,
You see an empty chamber
(Save for skulls).
No baby was screaming.
Not yet. Not yet.
An echo of something
That is yet to come.
You know if you never see this baby,
The blood will never flow.
You return to the kitchen,
And find a knife.
You raise it toward the light,
Starlight ShoalsStarlight Shoals in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I took a walk down starlight shoals,
Before the sunrise came;
I gathered pieces of shattered souls,
No one but them to blame.
I gave my life for a stranger's strife,
Entombed within the sand;
I wrote my name with a reaper's scythe,
Engraved upon the land.
I waxed and waned above the moon,
Bringing birth to children two;
I watched the twins go out at noon,
Watched one return and one consumed.
I cut my hand and let it bleed,
Too young to dress the wound;
I saved a plant and dropped a seed,
But never saw it bloom.
I ran a mile and doubled back,
Yet never found the start;
I loved a friend and wanted more,
But suffered a broken heart.
I reached for heaven with both my hands,
And the earth gave way beneath me;
I saw a pair of golden bands,
And knew they would deceive me.
I lay in bed on a night for thanks,
Four years and three months ago;
I left the soldiers' broken ranks,
And struck off on my own.
I never asked to be this way,
To walk down starlight shoals;
I'm paying the price we all must

So I grieve to close my eyes...

When I get like this, I don't know what I am, but I'm glad I can do this at night.
Don't read this and think I wrote it in the daytime.
There are some things you write at night, in the later hours, and only then.

And turn off the lights
And despise a dying dream.
You are not what you think you are.
But I am what I am...
And can you accept that?
I already have.
There are those who think they know me better, as if outside eyes
Can cut me open with a sharp stare or two, dissect me and divide
Into tiny chunks, for inspection.
Or they just take the whole thing and devour me, and if they don't choke,

Dick wants to call Roy, but at the same time he doesn't want to bother him. He's nothing but bother to anyone and Roy has his own issues to coop with. So he keeps walking praying that something good will magically happen. Maybe he'll get hit by a bus and die, than he can see his parents .
Oh look .a bus
Roy Harper sits on a roof above the streets of Central. Nothing is really happening as of late, strangely calm in fact. Both Ollie and he have had much to do. Still he sticks with his route. Sometimes he wish

A/N: Back again
Dick squirms on Roy's couch clearly nervous. Wally has his arm wrapped firmly around the ebony trying to keep him calm. Roy is walking back and forth in front of the couch his brow furrowed deeply. Ollie isn't stupid even though Roy likes to think he is, he'll know Dick is with him. And he will tell Bruce.
"We gotta get out of here," Roy states finally looking to his younger brothers. Wally's mouth drops open.
"This is crazy Roy," Wally cries out even though Dick flinches. "We can't just take Dick and hide him from the league! Batman will kill us!"
"I-I don't want to go back to Bruce," Dick finally speaks up though his voice is shaking horribly. "Pl-please don't make me go back to him " Roy knees in front of Dick.
"No," Roy says softly. "I promise Dickie, you won't have to go back to him, okay? We'll keep you safe." Wally reluctantly nodded his agreement.
"So where do we go," Dick asks.
"I have an idea," Wa

A/N: sorry guys it's been awhile. I have a lot of fan fictions but this one has the highest demand.
Wally knows the sound of M'gann crying, the whole team knows and hates that sound. The speedster rushes to the living area to find Kaldur and Superboy with the Martian. Artemis enters a moment later looking equally concerned.
"M'gann what's wrong," Artemis ask the green girl trying to push pass her own discomfort. M'gann lets out a sob and hides her head in Conner's arm.
"I-I thought batman would help him," M'gann whispers. "I didn't know what would happen. It's my entire fault."
"M'gann please tells us what happened," the tan skinned boy asks his voice etched with concern for his teammate.
"Conner and I found Robin crying," M'gann says. "He wouldn't tell us what was wrong, I thought I should call batman so he could help Robin." She lets out a loud sob.
"But I heard them fighting," she goes on. "There was so much deters and sadness and an
You're My PoisonI'm dyingYou're My Poison in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The pain seeps through
Clutching at my heart
Ripping it to shreds,
You merely watch
Pretending you're not the cuase
Seeing me die slowly
Every time you leave me,
But you return
As you always do
Slowly sucking the poison out
That you yourself placed
And i begin to forget,
Just for a moment,
And fall back into love with you again.
And with every kiss
Every time we fuck
Every second i spend loving you,
I feel the poison
Seeping back into my heart
And with everytime you leave me
i begin to die again
While you pretend not to see.
You're the poison and the antitode
My killer and saviour
The reason i want to live
While i slit my wrists,
You're my poison
And my addiction
As i continue to drink you in
And choke you down
This isn't the type of love that deserves poetryThis isn't the type of loveThis isn't the type of love that deserves poetry in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
that deserves poetry,
born out of an inability
to survive alone,
born from a necessity
to believe in a lie
I'll continue to whisper
in your ear each night.
"I'll protect you"...
A lie neither of us believe
and neither of us dispute
for fear of losing our only tether
to this decrepit existence
that we both fear so much...
this love isn't romantic
nor is it confrontational
its not comforting
nor is it disturbing,
It's merely there
sinking beside us
in the sea of life ,
that's gently drowning us,
we can almost breathe.
Your Poetry SucksYes, roses are redYour Poetry Sucks in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And violets are blue
But you have to understand
Who said they had to,
Its about imagination
Emotion and orignality
Not the reiteration
Of dead men's practicality
They are your sentence
To a world that has to listen
As you create the difference
Whether it be
With angst poem against love
Or how you set your heart free
To fly like a dove,
For these words
Whether or not they be true
Their beauty and ideals
Will be used to define you,
Hope ,in fact, has feathers
And like a caged bird it sings
But these words will only be tethers
That strip you of your wings,
Those are their words
Meant for their time
And meant for their herds,
But this your time
Meant for your words
And whether they be meaningful, stupid
Or completely absurd
I'm sure they'll be amazing.
