Storm Trilogy - Storm's RavageDawn illuminates the suburbs;Storm Trilogy - Storm's Ravage by ArtsyAmbassadorArt
Damage is now revealed,
From where night concealed
The storm’s ravage…
Trees torn and tattered,
Cars crushed and crumpled,
Buildings left in bits
And streets all shredded.
Support crews appear.
Restoration will begin
For all that remains,
With mere lament for the lost
Despair grips the suburbs;
Assaulted by an F-5,
Many may be trapped alive!
Imprisoned in rubble
They yearn to be salvaged,
Suffocating and praying
To see the living light.
Shouting and writhing
With whatever is left,
Clinging to uncertain hope.
Time passes in the suburbs;
Though rescue is progressing,
Time is ever lessening
For the absent residents
And their families’ faiths.
Many curse nature,
Some condemn fate,
A few deny its reality,
Yet all harbor a common consensus;
The suburbs will never be the same.
Destruction is a cruel reality.
We acknowledge its existence
But don’t believe it could befall us
Until coming when least expected,
Rattling our lives forever.
Poached TapestryPoached Tapestry by DreamingNixie
Though true my senses became nullified,
Become with me this woven tapestry,
A sarcophagus for I today have died,
And now you too balm me to a mummy,
I too know you you wind these bandages,
What you want is to extract my organs,
You do not care about the shortages,
Help me please save me from this true Gorgon,
But now my death will haunt you constantly,
I will not leave your side lover of mine,
That fateful day you chose to murder me,
I hope you are happy you artful swine,
As you will wait on you dear friend Death’s bed,
I welcome you to the place of undead.
TragedyThat morning you came to share coffee and conversation.Tragedy by Laurens-World
Spoons, cups and saucers clinked, bell-like staccato
on the stage-like table between us.
Our breath and words floated and intertwined
as well rehearsed lines in the air above.
We beheld life’s bounty and beauty,
apparently safe if not superficial, until
That piece of you fell out hard on the table between us.
The hideous violence splintered our thin veneer,
upsetting sets and our imaginary stagehands.
We gazed unknowingly at your pain, not sure how to proceed,
not sure how to finish well.
But time that day taught us that shared shock and stillness welcomes
All the shattered porcelain, twisted silver and splintered table tops
that continue once the play has ended.
there is a motherdespite hating the shape of my bodythere is a mother by kathleenfergie
i long for the swell of my
belly and the small tremors that lie beneath
i ache for the impressions against my taut skin
and a soccer player kicking its way out
i want the sleepy warmth resting against my breasts
and the small fist encircling my index finger
like a baby blanket engulfing me
giggles fluttering in my ear like eyelashes
against a small cheek after a loud kiss
there is a mother in the worried shake of
my hands and the patience behind my smile
but i am too young for these gifts
and the layers of calloused skin
on my wide feet are not thick enough to run
barefoot along the banks of my children’s cries
JFK assassination I waved to them as I pass by,after all it was what I was here to do. To sit in this car, smiling and waving to the masses who had come out to greet me. Most are waving, however there are a few people who are holding up signs to greet me to their city.JFK assassination by PotatoandWombat
My wife, who's sitting next to me, leans over and whispers that we should lower the car’s roof, after all we were about to reach the highway.
I waved her off, there is still one or two more blocks we have to ride by before we get to it. Besides these citizens had taken time out of their day to come and wave to me, the very least I could do in return was to wave back at them.
Governor John Connolly, who is sitting right in front of me, turns around to face me with a smile.
“It sure is great day for a campaign parade isn't it, Mr. President?” he asks me.
“Indeed it is,” I smile, “Why, there's not a cloud in the sky.”
He nods “Yeah, you sure pick a lovely day to visit us,” and then
Informed OpinionsThe hours were waning into the cooler parts of the day. The gentle autumn temperatures seemed to contrast, in a way, with the warm light of the bold, golden colors that were beginning to set the western sky aflame. The sun stretched its impotently burning touch over the elves' gilded kingdom of eternal song and efflorescence, and in the courtyard between the Arcane Academy and the Temple of the Sun, it gleamed on the heads of two pointy-eared figures, who sat looking like femininely personified contrasts of night and day themselves.Informed Opinions by AranyaVerSarn
One wore the dark garb of a warlock, her silvery tresses falling in elegant waves around her shoulders, while the taller one's sleek black mane brushed lightly over the threads of her mage-robes and fell a little to one side with the tilt of her head.
"How long have you had this?" Shad'ara asked. Her fair, whiskery eyebrows twitched with intrigue as she regarded the crystalline object hovering in the empty space above the open palms of her friend's hands, s
Rose is the Warmest Color- Chapter 18“Roseee! Hey!”Rose is the Warmest Color- Chapter 18 by lonelyxsonata
I looked up from putting tomatoes in my basket and raised my hand up to shield the sun’s bright rays from my face. I grinned and waved back.
“Hey there, Luke! If you’re here for more stir fry, then get lost!”
I was joking of course, but he seriously was going to eat my entire crops at this rate.
The blue-haired carpenter caught up to me and swept me up in a hug. “How you doin’, Rose? I feel like I haven’t seen you in years!”
I shrugged bashfully and smiled apologetically at him. “I’m sorry, I’ve just been insanely busy. Ever since Bess gave birth to her twins it’s taken an extra hour or so for me to take care of her calves alone. Not to mention I just bought an extra plot of land.”
It was true. After expanding my farm, I now had 8 animals in my barn. My chicken coop was now large enough to fit 2 ducks and 6 chickens. I doted on all my animals that I have taken care of since b

“So what’s my super cool mission that’s going to make Stark look like my birthday icecream, non-existent?”
“Can we talk about the mission at hand?” Steve asked everyone. Silence. “Loki’s gonna drag this out, So, Thor, what’s his play?”
“He has an army called the Chitauri, that none of Asgard nor any world know. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. Return, I suspect, the Tesseract.”
“So this is going to be Plankton FUN, not SpongeBob FUN…”
Steve just looked at you questioning before continuing. “An army, from outer space.”
“Just as long these Chitauri don’t have Kahn, I am fine with it.”
“Who is this Kahn speak of?” Thor asked in his manly voice.
“Kahn is a Star Trek villain who has super strength and regeneration, like Capsicle
Osgow: The IntroThe sun had retired from the now darkened sky many hours ago, and the stars now danced gleefully in it’s place. A river flows quietly underneath the protection of the trees towering above it. Everything is peaceful...almost to quiet. As if the forest was trying to give its own silent warning about the lurking danger.Osgow: The Intro by PotatoandWombat
A white, tall wolf sits peacefully by the edge of a shallow pool, his glossy fur waving silently in the gentle breeze. Suddenly a branch snapped, and the pale wolf's ears prick up...he senses someone close by. He sticks his snout into the air, trying to identify the scent of whoever may near by.
“Nightfang, you can come out,” the wolf says to the berry bush behind him. The bushes rustle and a small, black wolf with piercing green eyes emerges. The new wolf silently trots up to the white wolf and sits next to him at the edge of the pool.
“Tell me,” the white wolf asks, “Do you have any news of the pack?” The black wolf looks up at t
I Don't Want To Fall Out of LoveWhere do I even start?I Don't Want To Fall Out of Love by The-Waffle-Kid
I’m sad. I’ve been sad ever since I realized that when I look at you now, I don’t feel excited, happy, joyful, relieved or anything special. My heart doesn’t pump faster. It doesn’t stop. My breath never gets caught anymore, even when you look good or, more accurately, IF you look good. I don’t notice anything special anymore so I don’t notice that black shirt that drove me crazy before. I don’t notice the way your shaggy hair falls around the frame of your face, or the color. I don’t notice at all. I don’t care if I hang out with you anymore even though I want to care. I force myself to try to feel A LITTLE excited, like before, but replicating the emotions isn’t the real thing.
And that’s all I want. I want it so much, I miss it, and I miss it so much, I feel like crying. That’s how sad and empty I feel without those romantic feelings I had for you. They made everything b
SurgeonxMark (Surma) - I'll try to remember you~Surgeon x Mark Fanfic (Surma) - I’ll try to remember you~SurgeonxMark (Surma) - I'll try to remember you~ by SweeneyToddST
Hospital lights flickered down the old broken down hallway. Water dripped from the ceilings from leakage and the walls oozed blood from a brand new patient that had walked inside. Screams echoed the hallways making the hospital vibrate since silence filled the other rooms. The screaming was coming from a young woman from the surgical room. Surgeon was working on her making her feel the pain she so called “deserved”, but she didn’t really deserve it. She was just looking for a place she could stay warm from the freezing cold outside, but Surgeon hated new guests. Every time someone would enter the hospital he would awake from his coma that he loved so much. It made him feel more human than an insane maniac who craves pain from others, and seeing the insides of hu

The sparks that led me to writing! Last week I released my second book D.Cosmic Sonata! It's a beautiful book. Also, guys when I write something I don't want you to look for why I'm writing this or what could be the reasoing behind it. I want people to find their own meaning from my poems. A poem is novel that fills one page. Now I want to talk a little bit about why I like writing.The sparks that led me to writing! by GalacticPB
One reason I like writing is because my father taught me how to write. He taught me how to look at things, how examine things, how to explain things, and he taught me why I should look to understand things instead of running away from them. I another reason I like writing is because it allows me to share thoughts and feelings that I don't have the courage to speak with others. For me writing has given me a path to freedom.
I'm not the smart guy. I'm not the alethic guy with good coordination. I'm not the charming popluar guy that has great people skills. I'm just the
Stop Book Piracy! petitionDear Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.Stop Book Piracy! petition by fanfictionaxis
Did you know that there has been a recent explosion of book pirate sites that feature stolen eBooks and offer UNAUTHORIZED downloads for free?
Do you realize that this not only threatens the income of hundreds of authors, but costs you millions in lost profits?
Did you know that these thieves are so certain they can act with impunity that they proudly display per-title counters of how many downloads they have stolen?
Dear U.S. Copyright Office:
Did you know these thieves have made a mockery of copyright? They believe that you are powerless to prevent this behavior. Are they right?
Dear Internal Revenue Service.
Are you aware that millions of dollars of taxable income is simply evaporating because authors are not being paid for their work?
We are authors who are appealing to you to use your resources to make war on the blatant immorality, illegality and bad busine

Sword art work request.Art request.Sword art work request. by fanfictionaxis
I have an object that I need drawn and I do not have the skill to draw it. And yes, I did try and all that came out of it was a big headache. I have the object that I want drawn seen here: http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h326/fanfictionaxis/Castle%20and%20scenes%20for%20Warrior%20Princess/Tatyanassword.jpg
Where the Thundercat symbol is, is supposed to be a dark blue gemstone embedded into the sword's blade itself. The sword pretty much looks just like the sword of omens but the blade is made of carbon steel, which is a dark gray color, the hilt itself is wrapped in dark brown leather straps.
If you can help me with this, I'd appreciate it as my skill at drawing swords is quite pathetic.
