wwii: pearl harborwe stood idle and looked to the sky
for answers to questions and questions to give answers
they came down like missiles, bombs overhead
their answers were a destruction that flew in from across the sea
explosive and threatening, they made the noise feel like silence
rooted to the ground, we parted ways then to now
it's 2011 and i still look for you everywhere
"wwii: pearl harbor," by theboyandhislion
Beautiful. A thought-provoking and moving piece that makes the heart
beat a little faster, and the reader hug their significant other a little tighter.

"Debt" by RavensScar
As the suggester said, this is an "action-packed sci fi short,
with an engaging main character and a great thread of humour running through it."

What can I get you?She put her brave face on, as I stepped into her room. There was that fleeting pause between time alone and time with company. I had encroached on her time alone, and she wanted to look brave in front of me. I both admired and resented her for her casual slip into a false emotion. She was dying.
I wanted to ask, What can I get you? but my mouth couldn't find the words. My tongue dried up and my lips broke when I attempted an empathetic smile. I had more control than had previously been in my grasp before stepping into her room. She relied on me for all things vital in life. She needed me.
Could I bring her the world? In just a few short hours, could I bring her the scent of Vanilla musk weaving through the streets of Morocco? Would it be possible to capture the icy wind from the peak of Mount Everest and bring it into her room so that she could feel again? Fetching her a wish from the Lovers Bridge in Paris, or a gift to the parted from the Cross and Bones Graveyard in
"What can I get you?" by Kaz-D
What can you possibly do for someone who is dying? Kaz-D relates
this feeling of helplessness in a heartbreakingly beautiful, original way.

ni presente ni futuroEn la otra punta del mundo
ha caído Justicia
cubierta por las cenizas de la guerra y del tiempo,
con un agujero en la cabeza
y otro en su corazón,
provocados por el disparo de un arma
alzada, nunca empuñada,
por uno rico y poderoso
que se cubre las orejas
para no oír los gritos de Dolor,
y cierra los ojos
para no ver el llanto de Inocencia.
Y con sus pantalones,
de un blanco inmaculado,
pasa, sin oírlo ni verlo,
al lado de un niño de doce años
con las manos cubiertas de sangre,
que recuerda un partido de fútbol
que jugó hace dos semanas,
y que llora ante su madurez repentina,
dejando atrás un pasado ya pasado,
afrontando un presente que da terror
y con miedo a un futuro incierto.
Ni presente ni futuro by arualcat
A poem about injustice, innocence and terrible war.
Simple words that show the actual reality.
