I wish to see something bright, I want a shineI wish to see something bright, I want to see something shine.
By Kevin J. Jacobs
I remember back, smiling on this memory of mine. A girl with a smile so bright, came waltzing right into my life.
With a smile so illuminating, I could tell that this girl was kind.
As I made that last step to approach her, I started up a conversation, and it came to me by surprise.
We were making small talk about beaches, as we shared our non-salted water interest in the ocean, fixated on each other, our words were flowing miles at a time.
How did I get so lucky, I thought, to find a girl so kind?
Taking that one step forward, one foot at a time. To get that one wish which I sought, so divine.
I wish to see something bright, I want to see something shine.
I reflect upon the time. When I had you here. When you came, waltzing into my life.
Just when I thought things were fine, when I wanted to create a new friendship with this bright beauty I sought out to be mine.
Developing a love, that I figured would l
Sky Ark Part Seven Njord P2The geologist stopped walking back when he came to a small picket fence that a group of children made had made from small, thin like twigs which had fallen loosely from the red branches of the trees which surround the small town. The town where the remaining members of NASA's science division, and refugees reside, a place that provided them somewhere to hide behind their fright, and live a life of misled comfort. He began to realize that even if it was partially his fault, that the family was not given a trail guide to lead them back to camp, he is not the one to blame. With this thought in mind, he began to sought out a reasonable answer that would explain the family's disappearance. The explanation that crossed his mind is that her family was held against their will by the ghavscal whom cornered them in the forest as they made their escape through the trees. They would have been able to if they were scoping out the area where the people set up camp. It was clear to him that the orang
Sky Ark Part Six Njord Part 1The small town of Njord was named after the Norse God of Wind. It was built on the thirtieth day that the humans inhabited the second Earth. Establishing the small town, the people gathered clay, wood, and rock, to construct the small town. They came to this area that was surrounded by trees, when they hiked from the camp. Since they were low on fuel on the shuttle, and rescue capsules, they abandoned them, gathering the supplies that they needed, including the laptop that was aboard the shuttle. Arriving in this small area, that was hidden by the shade of the Wahlsburo trees which surrounded this patch of land, the remaining people set up a perimeter around the area. After the twelfth day, they noticed that the scientist, Greg Morrison, and his family did not return from their walk. Nathan Brills, the geologist of the science division, found it odd that they have not made their way to camp by then. The group of survivors worried for their sake, because they believed that something ter
Sky Ark Part Five Aquarixis P2He remained in balance on the head of the giant, making his way to the giant's left arm. Making his way to the giant's arm, his foot caved in a pile of ice which started to crumble away as the giant became weakened by the active symbol, connected to the piece of Holden's heart. Shards of ice scraped off the edge from the giant's face by the half elf's boot heel, as he climbed the frozen structure of the beast. Sky climbed upward onto the face, to give him leverage before he made his way down. He struck the side of his boot heel onto a ledge by the giant's lip, to rub against the ice which stuck to his boot, while descending down to the giant's arm.
Making his way down the arm, he saw that the king made his way up the ladder, and was now standing on the giant's face. The structure of the giant crumbled away as the two stood on top of the frozen beast. This
balance between them became disrupted as they stood within distance of one another. They were unable to stand still on top of the fr
Sky Ark Part Four Aquarixis P1Sky and Sativa made their way down the dark cavern, gazing at the thick layers of ice, which had covered the walls of the cavern. The first part of the cavern which was lit by the light of the sun, was the only part that was visible as they descended downward. Making their way down further, it had grown darken as the light of the sun grew faint, for the light had not reached that far down in the cave.
Covered in a sheet of darkness, the two were incapable of sighting anything which was in front of them til after they had made their way to the end of the cavern. At the end of the cavern, was a hole which formed from the collision of an impact of movement, from within the walls of the temple. Rocks had fallen during this impact, from the roof of the hole, falling into a pit of darkness which had been separated from the hole, and the icy structure of the stone wall which descended downward to the bottom base of the pit.
The light which shined, lighting the walls at the base, had come from
Sky Ark Part 3: Sapphire InnAs they entered the town of Jrilu, they found themselves standing in front of an inn, called Sapphire Inn.
The inn was a mid size building with candle light shining from the windows of the lounge, and above the roof, were large ice icicles which formed above the outer region, dangling from the roof of the inn. With a bit of class, in which the inn had offered, Sky felt a feeling of exhaustion, from the battle against the fire giant, but felt as though the inn appeared as though it was expensive to stay here, for he felt as though he didn't have the money to afford to pay for the night for him and Sativa to stay a night.
But, seeing as there was not another inn in sight, he brushed off his feelings of worry, and the two walked into the entrance of the high class inn.
Approaching the lobby, Sky and Sativa stood in amazement as they glanced over the walls of the inn. The walls of the inn were decorated in gold and silver plated statues of ogres which the head of the creatures in essence,
Sky Ark Part Two: IgnetiusThe valley that was next to Cavalla had started to become devoured by the darkness, by that of The Sheik. It was of no importance at the time because Sky and Sativa were incapable of progressing without the hammer Sky was to obtain from the sage of this village.
As they had made their way to the entrance to the village, they noticed that it was overtaken by trolls whom were blocking the entrance of Cavalla, in an attempt to prevent anyone from coming into their part of the forest. Unrepentantly, one of the trolls lunged forward at Sky, but the troll didn't even touch him. Sky took his combat knife that he had on his belt, and stabbed the troll, until it was begging for mercy on its' life.
The troll lounged down for a brief second to catch his breath, for he had a long trail of blood which flowed from his chest, several feet behind him.
Sky took his knife, and slit its' throat, ever so tenderly, and watched as the troll was bleeding from his neck and stomach, until shortly after, he had
Sky Ark Part One: Evolved
September 15, 2720
Over the centuries, the remainder of the human race managed to survive as they were loaded onto rescue capsules, living out their life in the Orange Unit Rescue Sphere, located on Mars, within the walls of the rescue sphere.
A new form of evolution had taken its course, in replacement of the human, a mammal evolved from apes, as they had faced their extinction, living out their lives on Mars, after majority of their race had perished in the late year of 2011, crossing over to the year 2012.
Left through despair, they wanted to pursue their dream of returning to their beloved home as they had not lived on Earth for thousands of years.
Through science and their increase in technology, they discovered techniques to sustain life in the rescue sphere.
Even though they had discovered a way to prevent their race from perishing, it was nothing compared to their original home.
The only living organism that existed within this time that resembled the human
ForeverI've known you for only a short period of time.
but I feel as if,
I've known you forever.
I tremble with joy at your every touch.
The feel of your hand taking mine,
I want you to hold it forever.
I glow with happiness every time you're near.
I want you near me now,
I want to be with you forever.
My knees grow weak in your loving arms.
I want to stay there,
I want you to hold me forever.
My body melts with every kiss you give.
Just the thought of your lips on mine,
I want you to kiss me forever.
My heart jumps to know how much you care.
Knowing that it is so much more,
I want you to love me forever.
I Fell AsleepI fell asleep
In the arms of the enemy.
My worst mistake,
As I let his words get to me.
I left my life
In the hands of a killer.
I trusted my blood
To a man who's a murderer.
I closed my eyes
As he lulled me away.
I loosened my grip
As he began to sway.
I fell asleep
In the arms of the enemy.
I lost my life,
but I lost my life willingly.
wishing wells and pumpkin shells
coffee with mint cream
wedding bells and magic spells
life is but a dream
mother says it's rain today
drought's been sixteen years
pigs will fly and cats will stray
seventeen brings tears
hooting owls and leopard prowls
burn the midnight sun
men with jowls eat fattened cows
never had such fun
father says it's time to go
new year's 'round the bend
can't be late for nature's show
fish-face now the trend
dreamer's dream and lover's love
wishing time would fly
blue moonbeam on heaven's dove
hope I never die
Needle of the PineYou're a needle of the pine, my dear -
a poking of the spine, a narrow rod
to gently prod my heart in waters brine.
And when I fall, you pull me tall
to bask in heaven's shrine, for what you are
'tis not sub-par, my needle of the pine.
Without MythologiesWithout Mythologies
If I could, I would make you a raging river,
With angry rapids supplied with rain
So you could always meander, and forever be able to run away
Without contending with myths wrongly interpreted - with pain.
- John K. Samson
We’re watching the sun drown in a lake,
your eyes are far away and you say you wish
you were the wind.
You stretch out your arms like tired old wings,
and say you hope one day the sky
will just swallow you up. In that last sliver
of light, I tell you that you have it all wrong.
You could never be something so invisible as wind,
(It’s cool breathe makes us shiver,)
If I could, I would make you a raging river.
I’d turn your fingertips to salty spray,
your bones to smooth
Your lips would kiss the ocean each day,
your gut would fill with fish and frogs.
Your fidgeting toes never forced still again.
I’d turn your heart into a waterfall,
And last of all I’d make
those rushing waters from your brain,
The real meaning of friendshipFriendship
Kidding around turns into
Remembering painful times
Ignoring the painful truth that lies ahead
Ending all hope
Never finding any good in it
Demanding they be there for you but they never
Seem to keep their promise of staying
Heartache and loneliness always comes at the end
Insightful friends are nothing but a myth
Promises broken and pitying oneself
In MorningThrough a wintry window laced with ice, lie
petrified panes of frosted grass beckoning,
languorously outstretched. A shivering bird’s cry
reaches horizon’s edge—that razor reckoning,
those impossible dimensions—hung like a kite
on a cloud, precipitously balanced between a dull
existence with poking pinpricks the only light,
and the embers of potential, slowly stoking. A lull
unfurls, a quiet eternity uncurling in that predawn
chill, everything faded to silent sepia, frozen
as though this instant is more important, torn
from time and left right where it was chosen
to be. Light spills over and creeps through
fractured, flinty sky turned a clear, unbroken blue.
LoveThis torturous feeling that engulfs my heart
And sends me spiraling into the dark
This chide that repeats itself within my mind
And berates me with remarks of what I sought to find
Dead and asleep, I have walked this earth
This waltz of sorrow I’ve repeated since birth
But the steps started to change, as I grew
And as I felt my hand being grabbed, I knew
That something unknown to me would soon grow
A feeling within me, that’s both friend and foe
The empty space has been filled
And open the door to that once sealed
Cupid’s arrow hit its mark
And sent me spiraling into the dark.
SanityThe walls of this place were white,
Sanitation and cleanliness were no doubt at play.
Walking through them I search for the light,
Lost forever in this building, searching for the day,
The one where I would no longer be lost.
The rooms were empty,
Not a soul but for the ones at rest.
I wouldn’t say I felt guilty,
But what I had done, I would address,
And realize my action’s cost.
Continuing through these halls,
I can’t help but look at the paint.
I remember the red smears on the walls,
The copper scent lingering still and faint,
Yet luckily those memories I tossed.
I pass on, leaving behind this phenomenon.
I see a shred of the sun’s rays,
And quickly I leave my role of false surgeon.
Behind me the blood of my past lays,
Leaving it to the cold and frost.
Tick TockTick tock goes the clock
It's all a little hazy,
Tick tock she's in shock
The girl that we call Lacey
Little lines cut her neck
But no one wants to see them
All her friends wish she were dead
But no one wants to be them
One or two can make it through
The Hell that she lives in
But nothing that they say is true
So no one can believe it
Her life is just a bunch of rags
There's nothing that can save her
Her breathing comes in heavy drags
Each saying "You Deciever"
Tick tock goes the clock
It's all a little hazy
Tick tock she's a rock
The body we call Lacey
Every inch in meEvery Inch in me
By Kevin J. Jacobs
Felt through dismay, plaging every inch inside of me.
Reaching out to me, calling my name.
This plague is not what it's cracked up to be.
It spreads through my veins, making its' way to my arm.
But, even through the dismay, I feel no pain.
Anxiety crosses my mind, making me feel dampened like the seasons in May.
It may spread through my veins, but the sickness is not what it's cracked up to be.
This pain is not strong enough to hold me.
Though I feel weakened by this plague, spreading through my veins, and calling my name, this pain isn't the life in me.
Inching its' way inside of me, lack of sleep, making my body grow weak.
This pain may not go away.
But, my happiness makes the pain, fall in shame.
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
