    I waver
    at the edges
    of the water
    and wonder
    do I cross floating
    or do I dive under?
    and the stars
    on the surface
    make me move
    regardless of
    this or that
    for space
    is everywhere
    and whether
    deep cold and vacuum
    or through
    crushing ocean depths
    I will move,
    I will find,
    and I will win...

    The Sentient Glitch Space Hobo

    Picking flowers in the rain,
    nobody will ever see my pain,
    millions of pricks stabbing at your heart of steel,
    only we know how it feels
    to be a Glitch

    (Not sure if this is a necro...)

    A haiku I decided to make:

    My leaders, they suck
    I have narrowly escaped
    My ship! It's broken!

    Jareix Cryvix The Waste of Time

    Apex are preferred,
    To these barbaric Florans.
    Burn them to the ground...

    Torture I prefer,
    To be branded a traitor
    Down with the rebellion.​

    Starsweeper Void-Bound Voyager

    I'm just a regular human.
    I never aspired to more.
    But since our fair race,
    has fallen from grace,
    I've taken on chore after chore.

    How should I know how to pilot a spaceship?
    My dreams never reached past the moon.
    Since that tentacled beast,
    made my home world a feast,
    I've been dancing to another tune.

    I've mined out whole planets to bedrock.
    My colonies thrive and grow strong.
    My combative technique,
    is a marvellous feat,
    and my crew swells as more join the throng.

    I'm now quite the critter-cap master.
    My beasts are a sight to behold!
    My utopia's lined,
    with flowers sublime
    and the streets are all rivers of gold.

    So I've changed quite a lot in my ventures.
    My dreams now soar out past the stars.
    What seemed a typhoon,
    was really a boon.
    I'm a Star bounding human commissar.

    A poem based on one of my characters

    Coming to Terms with the Vast Loneliness of Space (and in your heart)

    How many homes can one person have
    before they can settle in?

    Am I to finally take root in a foreign land
    or remain forever on the wind?

    My pack feel like strangers
    I barely know who is who anymore

    My friends on Earth were taken from me
    by an ancient beast from the days of yore

    I've look to the stars
    They seem to see through me

    It's as if they hope I continue on
    and not waste an opportunity

    Despite the excitement and intrigue,
    I just can't escape this lonely feeling inside

    After all, journeys aren't a lot of fun
    if there's no one else along for the ride
