Secrets Should be SilentSecrets Should be Silent:Secrets Should be Silent in Free Verse More Like This
What is in the nature of a secret?
It is not to be known, nor to be seen.
It is that which we bury beneath layers of deceit.
Why then, do we bury poetry?
why then, do we bury prose?
Why secret that which is meant to be seen,
And showcase that which is meant to be secret?
Are the words of our soul less important,
Than mere phrases designed to seek attention?
Are the words that we carve from experience,
Taken as less than a general phrase of emotion?
...No, I would hope not.
For I do as any other might,
And my skeletons are kept under lock and key.
For a secret displayed remains secret no longer;
Merely a gossip's fancy.

Things I Do When I Feel Down :cThere are times in our lives,Things I Do When I Feel Down :c in Free Verse More Like This
When we hit the all time low.
When the second-hand serenades no longer cut it,
And when simply 'letting it burn' no longer works for us.
We roll upon our beds like a roly-poly collection of rolltastic things;
And we lay face up toward the ceiling, slaying monsters on our portable consoles.
But that my friends is when inspiration strikes!
That is the moment when I rise up from the covers,
When I take a marker pen in my hand and use it as a microphone.
When my neighbours wonder what the bloody hell is going on,
Because I've started singing songs by Nightwish.
And when I get bored of that, IRON SAVIOUR,
Heavy Metal never dies!
Marylin Manson, The Beautiful People.
Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Your Guardian Angel.
Because truly when I see you smile,
Though tears may not run down my face,
I would never in this world replace:
The feeling of a success, and the smile it might brings
When I entertain you, with the way I sing.
And if you've gotten

To me however, there would be no question.
I was late to a part-time job, it would actually cost me money;
And did I mention I can't speak Chinese either?
Instead I communicated with gestures and signs.
She wanted to go to the train station, as I later learned.
With your car it would have taken five minutes.
But we walked and that is also okay.
To be honest, you might think you've done more good than evil.
You might think there is a welcoming committee for you at the pearly gates.

Seeing those born with skill and talent.
They paint such beautiful things, using the barest of material.
Entire worlds are spun at their fingertips, all from a dot of paint.
I think sometimes, of how nice it must be,
To be able to capture such beauty, within the borders of a page.
To spin a tale from but the smallest of phrases,
To create a fantastic adventure from a mundane experience.
It is painful indeed at times. When I am seated in this room,
Surrounded by the dull hum of failure and regret,
I ask myself, with eyes burning in the mirror,
Am I finally ready to give it all up?
'No!' I say
I will not let it end this way!
Not without a fight, not until I know that I am utterly broken.

But there is one thing that I have earned;
One little gift that remains my own.

METROPOLIS (DAILY PLANET) – At 1:34am local time, (9:34am GMT), Gotham City, New Jersey, was reminded of the Fault Line beneath its city. A huge earthquake, which measured 8.4 on the Richter scale, lasted 84 seconds and has killed more than 200 people.
With more than 100,000 injured and missing, and early estimates placing the damage at nearly $450 Million, the death toll is expected to rise as rescuers continue to pull bodies from collapsed buildings.
Gotham City Emergency Services are already stretched to the limit, and volunteers from other cities are finding entrance into the disaster area near impossible. The quake has resulted in the shutdown of both power plants, closing the airport which is otherwise undamaged. Due to the severe damage to hospitals and clinics, doctors are having to perform surgery in the open air.

The metal forced the air from his lungs as he was dropped. A heavily booted foot shoved against his back and he was suddenly sliding, his body twisting and rolling uncontrollably. There was nothing for his bare feet to grip to slow his descent and his cry of pain echoing close around him as an exposed rivet gouged into his calf. With his hands bound behind his back there was no way he could brace him as his uncontrolled descent came to an abrupt halt when his shoulder slammed painfully into the bottom of the pit Dick Grayson now found himself at the bottom of.
He groaned at the flare of pain, and looked back up the way he had fallen. Corrugated metal sides surrounded him and the thick ripple-like surface pressed into his back. Half of a large metal door was swinging into place twenty feet over his head and beyond that he could several feet of soil and stone above that.

It always amazed Wally just how heavy something as intangible as silence could feel. The interior of Mount Justice was thick with is, the lights dimmed into near darkness as most of the Cave's occupants had retired for what rest they could obtain after the day's events.
The ultimatum delivered to Flash and Superman did not go over well, not that he thought it would have. The pair finally relented to talk to Batman before they came back with the order to stand down. Not that the younger team would listen if it did come to that. They'd disobeyed the League before, and they were all more than ready and willing to do it again. They had both left shortly thereafter, with the promise to return the following morning, leaving Young Justice to wait it out.
He had spent the last hour just walking around. That of itself was strange, as Kid Flash never walked anywhere, but he was so lost in his thoughts that he hadn't realized when his feet had taken him to the d

CHAPTER ELEVEN: Bullseye
Robin was twisting his wrists, frantically hoping that the man had weakened the cuffs even a little. He discovered quickly that there was no give in them, other than when they pulled at his skin and tore open the blisters. He wanted to scream out his frustrations, but his raw throat was barely able to vocalize already.
His chest rose and fell rapidly with every desperate breath. His heart was racing and his mind was awhirl as he was resigned to accept that Superman was not going to be doing any saving. If the dart contained a kryptonite solution, Clark had maybe minutes before his organ started to shut down and he began to die – if he wasn't already.
Superman needed him!
"Think Rob!" He rasped to himself. "Think! You're supposed to be a master escape artist, so bloody well suck it up and escape!"
He had wasted what strength he had left fighting against the shackles

"I should have known he would have seen it," Wally commented to Artemis as the Martian's Bio-ship was pushed to its limits as they flew toward DC.
"World's Greatest Detective," the blonde had her bow across her lap and she plucked at the sting nervously. "Of course he's going to pick out Robin's Morse code. It's not like Robin would be trying to send us a message. He'd want big daddy bats to come save the day."
"No," Kaldur said from his seat next to M'gann. "He would know that the situation would hinder Batman. The means may have been something Batman would have recognized first, but Robin would no doubt understand that we would be the ones coming to his aid."
"You honestly think he was thinking that straight?" Superboy shook his head in disbelief. "I'm still surprised he was able to get out what he did."
"You don't know Rob very well, then," Kid Flash glared at the clone. "He's been working with Bats for years, a hell of a lot longer than Kal a

I am the outcast of my family.
I am the second child, the one not regarded.
I am always doubted, never trusted.
I am the one who is looked down upon for being different.
Between my brother and I, I am the one that thinks things through.
I am known to get what I want, because I do what it takes.
My brother is well known by nearly all
And praised by many.
People know me to tell me the grandeur of my brother,
As if I do not already know.
Little do they know that I have more to offer.
I hide my feelings for fear of getting hurt.
I have built a wall to protect myself from pain.
I will not admit when I am hurt, for jesting is all they will do.
For this I am deemed uncaring, because uncaring is what I am
If I do not wish to show how I feel.
I am the one that people question,
I am the one whose reputation is dark.
I am a mystery that people fear to search for the light of.
For they think I am truly wicked.
But am I wicked? Not in my heart.
The façade I have built is what people see.
And so it

After the moment of initial shock was gone, Loki’s calculative mind began running through every possible scenario. Who would have taken Caedra? Who could have taken Caedra? Not just anyone could have access to the gardens. And wouldn’t someone have seen her? Then Loki remembered. Sif. He had left Caedra with Sif. So where was she? He looked around again, though he knew he would find nothing else. There was no trace of the warrior maiden anywhere.
The thought went through his mind that this was somehow Sif’s doing. He hoped it wasn’t true – not because he cared for her, but because it would mean that she had played him. For the sake of his pride it couldn’t be true. But even then it didn’t make sense for Sif to have done this. She would never do anything to harm Caedra. Besides, if she had wanted to take Caedra away from him, all she would have needed to do was go to Thor. No, Loki confirmed in his mind, this was not

“The difference between grace and mercy is simple.
Mercy is not getting what you deserve, and grace is getting
What you do not deserve.”
As Loki walked around the palace, he made his way to the gardens. He still couldn’t believe that Thor had simply let him go without a punishment. Yes, he had sentenced Loki to imprisonment in the palace, but it was no different from what his life had been before he’d escaped to Jotunheim. There was no added stipulation, there was no privilege removed. Nothing had changed.
He continued to walk, lost in his thoughts, until he heard someone come up beside him. Glancing over his shoulder he saw that it was Frigga.
“May I join you?” she asked.
Loki nodded. “Of course,” he replied, and the two continued to stroll through the variety of trees and flowers.
“I am pleased with Thor’s d

“I will help you, __________,” He promised, and he’d meant it.
As Loki looked into your (e/c) eyes, he actually felt that this was a good thing. He wanted to help you, and this was the only way. But that didn’t mean he wasn’t aware of the risk involved. Yes, there was the “we might die” factor, but that wasn’t the most pressing concern to him. If, during the process of sharing his thoughts and memories, you came across his plans with Algrim, well…he didn’t care to think what would come after that. Would you hate him? Would you run from him? Would you turn against him? Or did he have a chance to persuade you, to show you that h

It had been hours since Loki had been dragged out of the throne room. Just how many hours it had been, he didn’t know, and at this point, didn’t care. He had been screaming and fighting the whole way back to his chambers, and even then he had banged on the door for hours after, all the while continuing to shout and scream. He didn’t care that ultimately it did him no good. He just wanted out. He needed out.
He only fell silent when from complete exhaustion he collapsed on the floor between the door and bed. When he awoke a few hours later, he was still alone, though he could tell that someone had entered while he had been asleep. A tray of food had been placed on the table, as well as a bucket of ice and a think, sturdy cloth.
Loki stood up and glanced down at his hand. It was badly bruised and slightly swollen, especially around his knuckles which had carried the brunt of the force as he’d hit Thor.

The dungeon in Asgard was the same as it ever was. The place had been built by Odin’s grandfather, and though its foundations were ancient, its magic was strong and furnishings just as ornate and lavish as the rest of the palace.
Loki sat in the same cell as he had before, waiting. He sat close to the “window” of magic and leaned his head against the wall, tracing the runes that glowed across the window with his finger. Like always, he thought of Caedra. Though he knew she was safe wherever she was, he still longed to have her back.
He’d heard no word from Thor since he had been locked away. He expected it wouldn’t be much longer until Thor had decided his fate and would sentence him. Loki had little hope that Thor would show him any mercy. Though often in the past his brother had tried to reason with him and give him another chance, Loki was sure that Thor would not show him clemency this time. He should never have, but then again

“Where are they?” Thor asked Heimdall, his patience wearing thinner with every passing moment. They were in the throne room again, alone, save for Tanrys.
The guardian was well aware of his king’s impatient and tensed state, but he remained as monotone as ever. “They have fled the Jotuns, though they will soon be discovered. Lady Sif has been provided with proper clothing. The cold is no longer something she has to fear.”
Thor stopped his frustrated pacing and stared at Heimdall curiously. “How could she have gotten new clothes there?” he asked.
Heimdall’s golden eyes found their way to Thor. “Your brother is a master of magic,” he reminded plainly.
Thor gritted his teeth. Even the mention of Loki angered him. “I should have known better,” he said, more to himself than to anyone that might have been listening. “I should hav

Every healer was busily tending to what survivors there were, and with every moment more and more arrived. Loki carried the young girl to him, holding her close. He could feel the stares of everyone as he passed by, wondering what on earth he was doing with this child. He didn’t care what they thought. Let them wonder. Let their minds create whatever horrid stories they would. His only concern was for the child in his arms.
By now the child had stopped crying, and lay still in his arms as she looked around curiously. When the healers were in sight, she had gripped tighter to Loki’s neck, as if she feared being separated from him. He relished the child’s innocent touch. She trusted him completely – it was not something he was used to.
Loki was almost to the healers when someone blocked his path. Loki glared at Thor, who eyed him suspiciously.
“What is this, brother?” Thor inquired, staring at the little child that looked up at him with

“All the clocks in the city began to wear and chime.

The fever broke the next day and from there Caedra’s health returned at a rapid rate. She was still the quiet child she had always been, but Loki could once again see the energy and life gleam in her eyes. She didn’t say much of Jotunheim and of course Loki would not mention it, but it seemed that Caedra would have little or no difficulty continuing in life. Loki had never doubted that the child was strong, but even he was surprised at how well she could handle something so traumatizing.
The days passed quickly and Caedra was becoming more and more impatient that she could not go outside. Loki could not explain to her why she could not leave, nor did he intend to try. He knew t

Mitra ran down the hall as the tears streamed down her face. She had once again been screamed at for not doing an “adequate” job. She had tried hard and done her best, but it seemed that the lady she served could never be pleased. Never mind that she was always criticized for spending too much time writing and drawing. She didn’t even have much time to do any of the things she liked, but that was still too much apparently.
Mitra ran until she was in a place of the palace where she was thought she was alone. Glancing around, she sat on the stairs and leaned her head against the wall as she continued to cry. She was told so many times everything that she did wrong. She was constantly reminded of all her faults, but never once was she commended on the things she did well. And even in those rare moments that she was given a compliment, it was immediately followed by a rather lengthy dissertation of everything that was wrong with it.
