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.
On reflectionOn looking back into your past
thinking how the time flew by,
you stop seeing the important things in life,
while struggling to survive.
Worrying about the future
and the mistakes made long ago,
disturb your peace of mind at present
you just can´t let it go.
Your errors are over and done with,
your past you´ve left behind.
The future ahead is a blank slate
so to yourself be kind
Stop worrying about what might not be
or dwell on your wrongs with regret
best to live in the here and the now
For it´s the key to real happiness.

No more Glory DaysAppropriate behavior will make students soar quickly
Technology controls the student's minds, wasting valuable time
Treating your fellow classmates with respect
Inexperienced students fall behind, destroying their futures
Tick-tock, tick-tock, you are running out of time...
Under the clock's constant melody, it rings throughout your ears
Don't fall behind; time runs out from everyone
Everybody has those days...don't let the failure consume you!
SeptemberSuffering in this world of hate;
Emitting my sorrow through my fate;
Preparing my life for the treacherous fight;
Taming the fury through what I write;
Empowering the voice that’s always screaming,
Marking its words from what I’m dreaming.
Being weak from the torture of the past,
Engraving worded scars that’ll forever last.
Remembering why I keep surrendering
In this month of September,
Where I’ll keep weeping…
Dancing WavesCan I see fire as energy
When I look into the candle
A message from the atom's make
Such beauty I cannot handle
To touch enlightens from contact
But flesh plays paltry passage
So scorn is thrown by cosmic hands
With feelings of burning sage
So touch my gaze that tries to see
Why the tongue speaks to the air
Perhaps to endless waves unseen
That inferior I say is bare
Epiphany then takes me whole
That racks my waking hours
And wrapt as babe in natal womb
My struggle no longer matters
For I will always be upraised
Afloat this sea invisible
The energy I see as flame
So radiates across the sill
Onto my palms where ashy scars
To them I feel no pain
As I breathe in this field of life
Dancing cross my face
Can I see fire as energy
While all its children guide
My mind to its enormity
Encompass all inside
Still I falter in this thought
But forget the angst for now
Because this sea will sail me far
And always I upon the bow
QuatrainMirrored by a rippling shadow
Looming over the watery reflection
Their bodies reaching high with golden tips
Bestowed by the waning light of nature
Burdened by an ageless battle
Their old scabrous impression
The serene elevation over Earth's pits
Nestled within verdant nature's cradle
Pelted by hail until leaves turn to tatter
The leaves regrow with nature's own fixation
High enough to grasp the sky to sip
Drinking deep from Neptune's own ladle
Time WanderersIt is that time of day where she must flee
From her cursed eternal hunter:Run!
He wishes to rid her curse and be free
And yet for years he never got it done
She plays all day throughout her adventures
Time-warp point is what she must find after
It's her destiny and curse, only hers
By mistake, he joined the ride forever
He succeeded in finding her one day
And she offered her life, open and true
But he could not kill his desired prey
For he felt pity and something else too
There was strong friendship and love- a connection
That echoes throughout their timeless affection
I Won The FightYou have no power over me, I repeatedly said
As you first struck my face, then my head
I love you so much, you repeatedly said
But rather than let you go, I’ll first see you dead
I love you, you brutally beat out of me
Now convince the world that I am the man of your dreams
For too many years, twin ribbons of guilt and shame tied you to my heart
While sledgehammers of fear and pain tore my world apart
But like an artist, I airbrushed away each unflattering mark
For too many years, I tip-toed through life trying to gauge
Every word I said, every move I made,
Never knowing which would set off your untamed rage
And as the world moved on without me
My one true desire was to be set free
But leaving was far more intimidating than you could ever be
Still, I had no other choice, you see
To save my own life, I’d have to escape
From this prison of torture that you alone created
So I dug down deep and found strength in my soul
And from weakness, I became so very bold
I reclaimed the f
ConfidenceOnly by trying can we find out what is what is wrong and what is right.
Only by risking damn cold shower can we find our true forever lover.
Only by creating our own blend can we meet a lifelong friend.
Only by treating others with respect can we the same of them expect.
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.
