I am the the shadow that follows you.
I am the air that moves around you.
I am the darkness that engulfs you.
I am the corner of your eyes.
I am the feeling of uncertainty.
I am that which you misplaced.

I am the elevator that closes behind you.
I am the glitch in the camera.
I am the scent that can\'t be hunted.
I am the ghost in the machine.
I am the light switch.
I am the valve.

I am life.
I am death.
I am the last line of defence.
I am the 5th Freedom.
I am not here.
My Name is Sam Fisher.
I am the Splinter Cell.
Poem Tribute to the game "Splinter Cell" by the company Ubi-soft. It's a game similar to Metal Gear Solid where you go sneaking around trying to avoid enemy detection. Unlike MGS tho you get the benefit of hiding in darkness. To have a pair or goggles that give you both infravision and heatvision, various gadets and guns that shoot very silently. Your mission is to save the world before dinner time.

I tried to make this with the idea of the Spinter Cell literally not existing. If no one saw the splinter cell sneak in and out of the base, did he really exist at all? Sorta along the same lines as the "tree in the forest" I guess where no one was around to hear the tree crash down (did it make a sound at all?)

So I basically wrote this with the idea that the splinter cell posesses the things that he has influence over. He symbolically becomes the things he controls since he doesn't exist to anyone on the base.

I'm sorry if this doesn't count as a poem. I put into the ode section since I felt it fit best there even tho it doesn't really have any rhymes.

Great game Btw. Check it out.

I love this game and this really is a great piece of literature (sorry im not sure what to cll it its great nut im not sure if its poetry or not) it sums up exactly what a splinter cell is supposed to be.
Great job!

Now here's a dilemma for you; what do I like more? The poetry or the meaning?

Felt the hair standing on the back of my neck. It must be the sensations those terrorists have before they know they're unconscious. Very well done.

Nice! Interesting and imaginative similies. But when I started reading it, it was going somewhere, but you wondered off aaHaHA

Such a fantabulous game too. The poem does it justice...and the sameness in the sentence structure (my mind is failing me in what the appropriate english term is for this... d'oh) makes it all the more powerful. :) (Smile)
