At the EndWhen my last bell rings
I don't know how I will die
I know you will be with me
You will not.
If you are at my side when I die,
I will only regret the separation that death will bring between us.
If you are not at my side,
I will know that
My life had no meaning.
Innate BeautyYou don't need make-up.
Your face is already perfect.
You don't need jewelry.
You're more valuable than any diamond.
You don't need to feign beauty.
You're naturally beautiful.
Fan the FlamesThe fire was never too big.
It was there, though.
It's gotten stronger and weaker over time.
Now, it's barely a smolder.
I've got to make sure the fire doesn't die out.
I've got to fan the flames,
So I don't lose you.
RageInsults have been thrown and normally I can handle them
Today, I have received an insult
I can feel myself shake.
I feel myself shake and I feel my heart beat faster.
Adrenaline rushes through my veins: My anger begins to fuel me.
I am in rage.
I have been scorned and I will show no mercy.
This problem began with two people involved.
When I am finished, one will have an epitaph and a headstone.
21 triggers pull back
21 hammers strike
21 bullets fire
It's the best we can do
to honor a hero
that put all others to shame.
Put himself through things
that would make the devil
go weak at the knees.
but he saved us
and we never deserved the gift that he gave us.
we salute him.
Operation: ReleaseThis takes place after the story that SammySpartan wrote.
After the squad became acquainted, a man in a UNSC uniform approached the four
soldiers. Curiously, the four looked on as the man glanced at a clipboard and
cleared his throat.
"I am Ronald Straghn of ONI. You may be wondering why we have gathered you
four here." he said.
"There is a secret that the brass have been keeping for a very long time. It's an...
ace in the hole. We've been saving it for a situation like this. With the invasion of
earth, we need to call upon our secret weapon."
T94 questioned the man. "Why do you need us? If this secret was kept after the
Spartans were sent, what could stop it from activating?"
"That's where you're wrong. You see, these ARE Spartans."
Visibly shocked, all four of the soldiers stared harder at the man.
"We never sent all of our Spartans into combat at once. That would be foolish.
There are more. Fifty, to be exact. We-"
Ryan wanted to take off his CQB helmet and bite this jackass.

The mind of a noob 2There was a Halo 2 and 1?
I bet that guy was hacking
The more numbers in my name, the cooler I am
Wearing the microphone is useless, as teamwork is irrelevant during gameplay.
All shooter games are the same.
A chainsaw on a modern battlefield would be a good idea in real life situations.
If I die, I should immediately quit the game.
A rocket launcher can be used at any distance.
The needler is pink and therefore stupid and gay and useless
Girls should not be playing Halo.
Microsoft charges money for new content because they are greedy. I should not have to pay ten dollars for the fruits of dozens of hours of other people's labor.
Microsoft made Halo.
The best way to judge a player's skill is by their armor.
Halo quotes 1I am a monument for all your sins.-Gravemind
Sir, permission to the leave the station?
For what purpose, master chief?
To give the covenant back their bomb.-Maser Chief, John 117
Now the gates have been unlocked, headstones pushed aside, corpses shift to offer room, a fate you must abide.-The Gravemind
If god is love, you can call me Cupid.-Sergeant Avery J. Johnson
The Master Chief: This is Spartan 117! Can anyone read me? Over.
Lord Hood: Isolate that signal! Master Chief, mind telling me what you're doing on that ship?
The Master Chief: Sir. Finishing this fight.
Cortana: [on radio] The message just repeats - "Regret. Regret. Regret."
Miranda Keyes: [on radio on another ship] Catchy. Any idea what it means?
Sergeant Johnson: [on radio on another ship, speaking in the position of a Covenant] Dear humanity, we regret being alien bastards, we regret coming to Earth, and we most definitely regret the Corps just blew up our raggedy-ass fleet!
Pilots: [along with Sgt. Johnson] Hoo-ra!
PetalsI pull off a petal
"He loves me."
His smile is the galaxy I live and breathe in.
I pull off a petal.
And when he can't make time for me, that's okay.
He makes up for it in his kisses.
I pull off a petal.
The other girls don't matter
Because he comes home to me.
It hurts a little but I deal with it
Because he is the sun and the stars.
I pull off a petal.
He may ignore me sometimes
But deep down I know he cares.
I pull off a petal.
I'm hurting, but I need him.
He's the only one in my head.
He's the air in my lungs.
I pull off a petal.
"He loves me not."
speechlessI swear, I don't think I've ever
met a person quite like you before.
You stir up an inconceivable amount of feelings
inside of me, and it seems that I can never
find the right words to say whenever I'm around you.
historically inaccurate documents-i-
you were perfect.
i could not look directly
at your flare, your lace,
i learned to love and blush
in that moment.
there are eight planets
and each one orbits
i am the first person to name
this cluster of stars
for the handful of freckles
on your arm
that it mirrors.
and i am also
you are the gleaming envy
of every viewer. you stand
bathed in worship-worthy
nervous ticks that only i
not a single other being
in our plane
is made of matter.
you alone are real
and we are the shatters
of the echoes
your breathing makes.
cusped quasars sync
portals swarming out of
sinusoidal orders. ornate
soils storing digitized loyalties
of lovers purring potently.
potential switched kinetic
all times are ours
and all dimensions follow
all rhymes involve
and all tensions swallow
we're all right
in all beds

highschool heartsnew faces, old faces
faces we think we see
faces we wish we would never see again
laughs out loud
proclamation of feelings
sitting at the red table
coffee in hand
smiling so faintly
you joke so inappropriately
but not at that
how oblivious love is
how oblivious our lives are now
and pretty brown eyes
that glint in your eye when i blabber on
your pretty lips
i promised i'd stay on my studies
but i'd rather be studying chemistry
One nightOne night, I can be with you.
I don't have to look at the moon
anymore; hoping that you will be
looking too. The stars dance
around the moon like all those
other girls do, because they want
to be with you.
Envy begins to the poison that
sets into my veins; how any of
those girls could make you feel
like you've found the one but I'm
just going to be that girl that
sits on the side wishing that
you could love me.
You won't even know anything about
me but, I know so much about you,
my dear. The way that you smile the
definition of happiness, to the way
your voice plays a symphony that is
I begin to fall in love with you
all over again, like I did before.
Nothing could make me feel so safe
and warm in a cocoon except for you;
looking at me with those blue eyes
that are brighter then the ocean
itself making it jealous of you.
Our UniverseHere we are in our mundane universe.
We stand underneath the night sky
And gaze up at the stars.
We are two small specks of dust
Attached to each other by tangled fingers.
My toes wiggle deeper into the sand
As I watch you splash around in the warm water.
Sometimes it's hard to believe there's a universe out there.
But we'll see it someday.
Together, hand in hand,
We will explore this huge galaxy.
We will make our own discoveries.
We will search for adventure
All the while we hold tightly to each other.
Because I see the universe in your eyes and your heart.
Because no matter how far we go
We'll still be two little dots
Lying on that beach
For you If the stars don't shine tonight
Will you still love me?
If our hearts stopped beating
Would you forgive me?
If the earth stopped spinning
Would you still hate me
Yes I know darling you still hate me, your hate for me burns like a raging inferno.
I understand no matter what I will always love you.
The truth is you could take everything I love, strip me down from everything, break me, even slit my throat and I would still love you.
You raised me from the hell I was drowning in, the black abyss I was trapped in for so long.
To this day I don't know why you would do that just to leave me!
I did everything you asked.
I stood up for you.
I fought for you
I would have even taken a bullet for you...
but still your pierced that knife through my back grinning the entire way
I would have done anything for you
Even if you died I would have died with you
Even if that meant taking my own life and losing my wings
Your StarlightYour Starlight:
Climbing up the steep slope
Completely enveloped in summer
Night's warm embrace
My goal silhouetted against the moon
The Withered old tree stood
Covered in the scars of forgotten promises
Placing a hand on the old bark
I remove a pocketknife into my hand
Staring at the blank spot
I recall memories from my life,
My first steps, my first Dance
My first Love, My first broken heart.
The tears come before I can stop them
Even now the scars still hurt
Clenching my fist I closes my eyes
Trying to contain the pain
Suddenly I feel a pair of arms
Wrap around my shoulders
Opening an eye I saw
Arms made of starlight
Turning 'round I saw him
My star, the only one who cared
I hadn't spoken to him since I was young
But that didn't matter to him
He smiled and hugged me again,
"Do not worry." He whispered into my ear
"Though you've grown, I'll still be here."
He held onto my shoulder and smiled at me
I said with more tears than ever
"How can you still care? I almost forgot you were ther
I'll Know It's You When...Daddy told me that I’ll know
I found you when your fingers
can conduct an orchestra
in my heart and your lips will
taste like ocean water and autumn leaves,
he said I won’t bite my tongue anymore
and the ashes under my skin will be
replaced with things like New York snow
and even glitter. He said when I can
taste my laugh as it ripples out my throat,
when my socks are filled with love letters
and little scented candles, that’s when
I’ll know I found you. He said to picture
a circular object in the sky and if I look at it
and it becomes the sun instead of the moon
then, yeah, I’ve found you.
In the shadowsThe world is a dangerous place
and it's only getting worse.
Don't worry, I'm watching.
You don't see me, but I'm above you.
On the roof.
In the crowd.
In the hall.
I'm that shadow
the one that's always in the corner of your eye.
I will be there.
If you fall, I will toss a rope.
If you lose something precious, I'll leave it at your door.
If you are lost, I'll drop a map.
I am your good luck.
I am your guardian.
But I am not an angel.
Just a man.
And mortals need help too.
Unfortunately for me, I don't have a shadow to help me.
And it makes me feel alone.
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
