THE THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM!
As some of you might already know. I'm Moon. This is my third attempt at keeping a thread alive.
It's totally gonna die,
and I might cry.
But it's worth a try :3
^ Poem of the OP. Please Help the poem prove itself wrong, and don't let it die. Donate your time and feedback to this poor thread, so it can feed it's baby poems. :>
Anyways. I'm not really sure what all this will contain, I just hope there will actually be people willing to help me become better at whatever I try to do. So... I guess that means I will be writing (duh), drawing, and other artsy-fartsy stuff I shall attempt.
So... That's all I have for the OP! I hope that all onlookers will enjoy what I do!

That dango tree was for Frankie. :P
Looks like I'll have to put in some effort to this thing. We'll see how that goes...
Mainly, I am posting this to rant. Ranting usually helps me with my creative flow.
I'm gonna be selfish, and talk about me. This is *my* thread, anyways. .-.
I'm busy. I'm sad I don't have much time to come back here more often. I literally wake up, clean stuff, and go to work. Lately that has changed into waking up, going to work and hopping online then sleeping the day away. I believe I have made one of my many transitions, which is where I simply move on from my old fads and hobbies. Things bore me, and I lose interest, and I forget about them. Sadly this is has happened to AG and pretty much all of the people in it. Just imagine the mood of this post now as being that yellow dango.
Let's focus on the end of the school year. Around the start of May. By this time, I already knew I was going to fail two classes, and I would have to go to summer school. I didn't care, really. I though summer school should be offered as a full out school year thing for kids who work better online, but whatevs. And after school ended and my whole "OHLOOKIFAILEDAREN'TYOUSOPROUDOFTHEDAUGHTERYOUHATE" thing, I had Rookie Camp for band, and I had to go because I got Brass Captain. It was a win-lose situation. ANYWAYS. In summer school (middle of June, after Rookie Camp) I had to retake English and History, and I did it using Nova Net, which is designed for idiots. I finished english in 3 days and then history in 3 days, so summer school was a breeze. Then I went on a cross-country trip with my family, and that took up the end of June. It is now July and I'm wondering where my summer went, because it's the middle of July and I seriously have no recollection of what happened in the school year. My mind has been put on this cycle of work-sleep-work and that's just all I do. I haven't written any new poetry in like a year, with the exception of that piece for the poetry contest, and it was astonishing I could write AT ALL. Now I'm doodling again and you see the failures created, lol.
Well. Yeah. That's just a run down of my summer and why I haven't been here. But I'm getting money, and money will help me do things I want to do in life. IT'S SO SAD THAT I WORK IN FAST FOOD YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
BLAH. Life. Y U NO GIVE ME BREAK???
We shall see what school provides me; maybe a lovely break or maybe another friggin curveball. I'm really only waiting for school to come around considering it holds the key to my social life. *sigh*
TL;DR : Life has been sucking the life out of me, but I might stay alive until school.
Maybe a I can pull a poem out of my rear end now! Wouldn't that be fantastic?
Aw. Well I do plan on posting something later today. *sigh*
You have legions of fans consisting of lurkers.
Well, maybe stalkers, but I can't speak for everyone.
Well I wish they would come out and speak now :<
Chirping of the birds,
Yet silence is all around,
Consumed by the green.
Entry for haiku contest. Whee-oo.
Darn it Sal. How did you know I was a stalker? Totally kidding.
Anyway, be patient Moon. You were gone a long time. People will start posting again soon.
It wasn't THAT long. I think it was since the January.. But that isn't that bad :<
I plan on sticking around a bit, at least until life hits me in the face with a hammer again.
mojo, mojo, MOJOSPY!
Not sure what that means, armornerd.... but uh, Thanks?
Chirping of the birds,
Yet silence is all around,
Consumed by the green.
True peacefulness lies in how calm nature behaves!
My insanity is unparalleled in this dream of mine
This chill, this glee, running through my spine.
Their bodies hit the floor
As an unrestrained laugh rips itself from my core
I hold the power of life or death in my hands
You must beg and plead to change my plans
You pathetic, sniveling scoundrel
You don't deserve to live
I'll end your life now
This is simply how it is.
So WOW. I just remembered that little Exit Path story I made like 2 years ago. I'm gonna start to resurface my old stuff from my second thread. Maybe I'll find my old first one, I'm not sure which had the old story.
Anyways, here is one piece from my old thread.
Just a little more.
We are almost there.
Just one step outside the door
And we can get a breath of fresh air.
So long have we have had to wait
Too much pain,
We have had to take.
Such a burden
Is not wise.
Because there's no doubt
That it lead's to your demise.
Someone has to do it.
Might as well be me.
Who else can shoulder,
Such a responsibility?
So now you and I
Should part this destructive trail.
For if you continue much longer,
I'm afraid that you might fail.
Just leave now,
So you can live your life.
I can handle this pain,
You don't need to have such strife.
HEY WOW I FOUND IT!
"T46 9015! It is your chance for Freedom! Come, Show us that you deserve it! Pass through our tests and you will be free!" The Voice said from the Speaker. I looked around as they called my name. All of us, just pawns in a cruel game of cat and mouse. We all knew it, but we didn't want to face it. A few of the new Runners gave me looks of envy. If only they new that they would die if their name got called. I rose from my seat, and with an emotionless face, walked through the door.
I was greeted by a machine. Another emotionless thing, but not alive as we runners were. How I envied it.
"T46 9015, please continue into the stadium. I am sure that you will be the one to win and be set free! Good Luck and do your best!" The cold silver machine said. All of us in waiting had heard the excact same thing as the others left. We could hear it through the door way, and we knew it was Death, bekoning for us.
I walked through the next door, where a bright light was shined on my pale blue face, and I heard thousands laughing, screaming, clapping, whistling. It was not cheerful. It was cold and cruel. I stood before them, on a platform, and I refused to show any emotion. The platform started moving towards another platform, and I knew I was to see hundreds more. I looked behind me, at the door, and I saw the grim faces of my fellow people looking at me as I left.
The platform quit moving as it reached the other one, and not too far, I saw the spikes and axes. But I showed no fear. I don't think I ever will again. Don't give them a reason to suspect you. F49 1506 told me. It is possible to leave, just never let them see that you have feelings, and they will let you pass, then you must run faster than you ever have before
How much hope is there? He was the One that left. He got out somehow. Who knows what he had to face. When the Humans carried him back through the door, he yelled it to everyone.
The Humans procceded to dump him on the floor and withouht mercy, one of the Humans beat him till he quit trying to stand. "This is a bad runner. Do not listen to him, he speaks lies to you all. You can be freed as long as you finish through the stadium! Then you must complete a last test and you are free to go wherever you want!" The Human said. He had cold blue eyes and shaggy black hair.
But the other Human I was more interested in. He had soft green eyes with brown streaks. Like the eyes of my People. He had golden hair, with darker streaks. As my child self looked at him, and he looked at me, I saw a struggle in his heart. His eyes faltered and he looked away. "Zhe shekai sei?" I questioned the man. The blue eyed Human looked at me, and took out his knife. I ran to the corner of the room and curled in a ball. "Nei! Nei! Shoni baiya!" I screamed.
The Human grabbed my arm and sliced downward. "Zhe Uaimaiga!" I yelled at the man.
"Rhe shika bai nei sie." The Human spat at me. I stared at the other Human and gave him a pleading look. "Was that neccesary Sean?" The Human asked.
"Oh, so now you have pity for them John? God ****!" The Human named Sean told the other Human.
"Lets just go. Get rid of F49 1506, and we are done." The Human named John said.
John looked at me and handed me a bandage as Sean took out a gun. "Zhe shekai di John?" I asked. "Hai. Zhe shekai di..?" John asked. I smiled and said "Daiyama." John smiled back at me and helped wrapped my bandage. "Daiyama, Yaloe." John said when he finished. "Yaloe." I responded. He looked over his shoulder then covered my ears. I heard a muffled gunshot and looked at my old friend. His name wasnt F49 1506, it was Sheimagya. But the Humans didn't care about that. I ran to him and yelled "Sheimagya! Nei!" But John pulled me away. "Sh sh. Go back now Daiyama." He whispered.
I looked at the nicest Human I had ever met as the other Human sean walked away. John waved at me, and I looked at him through tears. I tried to wave back, but I couldn't. I ran back to Sheimagya and his eyes fluttered for a moment. In our language he told me "They always forget our hearts are on the other side." He told me with a weak grin.
Translations (wow I feel nostalgic)
"Zhe shekai sei?"
You have name?
"Nei! Nei! Shoni baiya!"
No, no please don't.
You (wordy dird)
