Devious Journal EntryI sat in an IHop before noon. The bustle and clatter and murmur of a large city coming in for breakfast was a relaxing backtrack to a long, difficult conversation. Not difficult as in uncomfortable, as there was great ease in the flow of words, simply that the subject matter was particularly grim. A woman with honey brown skin served coffee, a boy with a heart tattooed on his thumb gave condiments.
We talked easily over the hushed roar of a full restaurant.
It was the same conversation we had had before when I first arrived, and once a week back before my upcoming departure, a heavy, black fog of a problem that seemed to be constantly carrying itself over and through my companion's head. The words I said were the same in essence I had said the other times, only now more confident, more broad in assurance as if from a play I had done in the past. Improved philosophies flooded between us, a kind of silvery white, ageless flow of spoken thoughts tangling with the golden air of the restaur
She Thoughtfully EvadesMore than I’ll ever need
Far more than I can sustain
She’s evaded the iron clasp of my youth
The trove of sweet-nothings
I’ve toiled over in secret
Each moment I delve
That trails on endlessly
Far out of reach
In an ominous refrain
Of how, where and when
I empty the troves
Hastily, bereft of thought
As romance clouds
My mind in its frenzy of promise
The soothing sweetness
Of a caring and generous morrow
Even dreams cannot retain
More than I’ll ever need
Much more I’ll never know
She spares me
For the refuge of another time
An opportune haven
Has paved my jagged state of mind
With all I can
With every patient fiber within
I strain and strive
In mending the chasm of time

Heart of the WomanHeart of the Woman
"You may have many things in life,
But you must have love. When you lose the others,
But you have love, you can still be happy. So I learned,
Beside my beloved."-Puabi
I never cared much for money
Or what it can buy.
Like many things in our world,
It comes and goes.
I never thought I was the "gods' gift
But something in me warranted
A gift to me: a special woman
Whatever is given is a blessing.
She came and does not want to go.
Her heart is in my care and custody
As I would handle a precious stone.
True love requires that we care.
I have cared for none other so much.
Heart of the Woman IIHeart of the Woman
What will glow like fire every night?
What will shine like the stars?
What will glimmer so brightly
That one will see it from afar?
What will have value more than precious stones,
More than silver and gold?
What has a price so dear when bought
But never should be sold?
Men, if you don't know, then ask your wives; if they don't know, then ask Puabi.
SmileI'm trying to learn to send good messages to my friends as much as possible so there is something I have been thinking to tell you guys all week. Appreciate what you do have if it's something that makes you happy. Honestly, I have been doing that a lot lately and it makes me feel good inside. Friends, family, even fandoms. When I think of what I have/like, it makes me happy. I focus on what puts a smile on my face.
I just wanted to say is you guys doing the same would be very beneficial. Appreciate what you do have in life that makes you happy, find the things that makes you happy. Something that makes you smile. It's been helping me and I think this is a useful tip for others. I'm doing my best to be as kind as I am and send good messages to others so here's one that I know is true with all my heart.

Woman's SilenceWoman's Silence
Woman is silent with a man
For sundry reasons
She may be anxious
About his health and their future
She may be sad
But afraid to tell
She may be happy in love
And simply enjoying it all
How do I know?
I am lying beside my woman
A soul suppressed for centuries
Duties of nobility
Affairs of state
Until she stopped living
My woman is silent too
About my health and our future
But she enjoys with me
Happy in our love

129th Day on DA (How do you treat your lady ?)Again , sorry for MIA-ing on you guys this weekend , i was away on a trip . So I have been really wanting to post this topic for sometime and finally get the chance to . So dudes , how do you treat your lady ? A man can say that they can do this and that for the lady but as a lady , I would personally feel that words are only effective if its supported by actions .
Its good to treat you lady like a queen , which lady doesn't want to be treated like one ? The feeling of being special , that is something that will ease and remove almost all negative effects that they have been carrying . I mean , it takes 2 hands to clap isn't it ? I have been hearing things like , my girlfriend has been a pain to me etc , she has been pressing my buttons and keep bothering me all the time etc etc just because your warcraft DOTA or xbox is more important etc. ( I don't understand how someone can be on the PC or their game consoles more then 10 hours a day) . And honestly , a
Dust BowlHumbled in stature
Bare and bereft
As the morrow lurks
A towering menace
Are an easy conquest
Among the uprooted
Once firmly planted hopes
They sprawl no more
With color or flare
Far from reverence
As dried bundles of grey
Is an eroding secret
From the tamest voice
It's Been a WhileDestined to evade
Each troubling glance
I’ll weave through this earth
Unhinged for all time
I'll plot every word
Each wavering step i take
As the cries of fellowship
Smother me with remorse
They call out sternly
To a silent unknown
Where I tussle with fear
Overrun by searing regret
For the misty struggle
They faithfully bellow
To pry out my form
My minced and butchered conscience
Tried and true friends
Dare to heave
Implore and reach
My frail and faulty mind
Yet a wall of treachery
Of frightened deceit
To bar my impassioned escape
church streetmaybe it was the smoke or the rain or the way our skeletons intertwined to keep out the cold
but it was then that i realized no matter where we go or what we do i will always have some sort of nebulous, ever-expanding love for you and the way the rain hit your glasses and your calloused hands in mine and the way your laughter echoed through the empty park in the dead of night (who cares if we wake up the lady across the street?)
and we look at each other like we're about to kiss but we (somehow) never do, always just teetering on the edge of "almost" and every whispered declaration of affection hanging from our lips in the form of "be careful" and "see you later" and "you'll catch a cold"
we are just waiting to happen, two tiny, finite little plants with such an infinitesimal existence too short to see the world but
will we try
Little Remains Part IILittle Remains part II
These eyes, this mind, this soul,
All see my thoughts pass by like clouds
One after another, they drift
Leaving the terrain of my heart clear
If they rain, it will be
Female tears of joy and gratitude
Little is left except love
I sit at my desk for a while
Look over a shoulder and smile
Moist eyes fill like clouds of rain
But instead of thunder
A breezy voice
When work and ambition are fulfilled
Little remains, except love

One Day in PompeiiI normally do not enjoy going to a lot of museums, but there are a few that will stand out. One of these being One Day in Pompeii, the current exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
If you do not know the story of Pompeii, it was an ancient Roman city located close to Mount Vesuvius. In August of 79 AD. the volcano erupted, covering the city in about twelve feet of hot ash and other debris. Historians say that the heat, nearly 500˚ fahrenheit, stopped all life in mere seconds. Within a few years, Pompeii was completely forgotten. The ash, however, managed to preserve that day. In the mid to late 1700's, the city was finally discovered again, along with the story of what had happened that day.
The exhibit had a lot pieces, from marble tables that were in the houses of those who had higher ranks, from gladiator helmets and fine jewelry. There were utensils for preparing food, and even medical tools, which are almost identical to some of the ones we use toda
Cyber BULLYINGCyber Bullying, this does not just affect DA but everywhere else. You guys have NO idea what you say and how it could affect others. I dont know maybe it is just me but i would rather laugh at someone else's enjoyment than someone elses pain.
Now i know that there has been a large amount of journals about rovdjuur 's death. And a LOT of you have been ranting up and down asking for proof. and that fb/da comments aren't enough. well sorry that you need to be that way. how you need to be able to see the body to believe. i hope you become a great detective one day <3
But honestly, i'm not here to raise a fuss or anything. The thing i wanted to point out is how one action causes a reaction.
You people keep forgetting that behind every account is LIVING BREATHING PERSON. Who THINKS and FEELS just the same as you do. They ACT and REACT they why YOU would. When someone attacks on friend of cause THEIR friend will ATTACK BACK! this is the way humans have been since forever

The World Is YoursThe world is yours,
You know it
and I know it,
no matter what I'm saying.
But don't ask me
what I would do without you.
simply it wouldn't exist.
But it would exist another world,
better or not, I don't know.
But you exist
and this world exists
The world is yours.
Love at First SightNo one saw her. Well, no one was bothering to even look in her direction, so it was to be expected. She had been coming night after night, watching them as they prepared, hiding as they passed by, and coming out at night to see their progress. It was to be the party of the century, so how could she resist?
They walked along the shore, laughing, completely unaware of eyes peering out at them from the water, her black hair floating around her face as she lingered longer than she probably should. If they saw her, or worse, if they caught her, she knew what their kind would do. They had stopped believing in magic so long ago, they wouldn't know what to do with a creature like her.
Her hair stayed matted to her head as she poked her dark eyes out of the water to get a closer look, taking in an almost painful breath of air to get a real feel for things.
The cherry blossoms that hung over the water smelled sweet as paper lanterns blew in the wind. It was the most beautiful thing s
Alyssa's JourneyAlyssa's Journey
Riding on my bike on a Sunday night,
Nowhere 'am standing, there's no worthy fight,
I am only fighting with the beast inside,
I must find a place, to get in, to hide,
There, I see a Tunnel, calling me to dive,
Maybe, If 'am lucky, I will feel alive.
There's no way out, just another fall,
STaring to the mirror, just another Wall
Witches, no magic, I 've not seen before,
Fucking trend of mine, rotten to the core!!!
Suddenly, I'm lost inside a foggy light,
No, I'm not crying, it's your fairy sight,
Maybe I am dreaming...of another Life.
Y' Arrived a moment out of Time,
I saw you STanding
On the Wall,
Come surprise me,
Come and Love,
Life is stolen
And I fall,
Please, Don't Trick Me, I'm Alone!
Don't deny me, Kill this trend,
Tears and dance, A weird blend,
A strange journey inside...
It's not my chance; We're back in T
Prelude to War (APH PruAus Oneshot)Author's Note: Just for some very necessary background: This is set right before WWI when Germany encouraged Austria to start the war
Austria walked down the hallway fiddling with one of the buttons on his jacket, which was one of his many nervous twitches. He had not expected to be so nervous about this, it was simply asking for a contract to be honored. He was only talking to Prussia, which shouldn't have been a problem, but there was something about it that was causing him to wish he could have just talked to Germany. But, alas, he had no choice in the matter. He turned the final corner, feeling a kind of rising anxiety that he certainly shouldn't be feeling within his own house. He stopped fidgeting with the button and instead used the same hand to push his glasses up to the bridge of his nose.
He took a deep breath to steady himself and then he pushed open the door. The room t
The Wisdom ToothThe Wisdom Tooth
Your won't feel your wisdom tooth.
Only after years you'll know.
If you think you feel it, you are wrong.
If you are old and you think "I was right!",
then you must see that it was only by luck
or something over you
and over me,
I'm just an owl.
If not, then I should inform you
that not eveybody is ment to form one.
This can be good and this can be bad.
I dreamt of shallow space...within time
And deep darkness...within light
A wordless prayer that seeps into the sky
And all that can be heard is a faint...cry
I dreamt of relentless winters on the Sun
And scorching summers on the Moon
A universe that is waiting for another dawn
Yet...I'm the only one that is waiting for...you
Re-sacrifice my dependence
Clothe me with confidence
An indestructible vortex
Reinforce my flawed differences
Reverse the hopelessness
Amplify the celestial silence
Defy the faithless
Construct a harsh tolerance
Obliterate my ignorance
Create an immortal balance
Revitalize my endurance
Strength can't be painless
Make me courageous
These tears aren't evidence
Dear guilty conscience
You aren't the weakest
Redemption is shameless
Scars can be gracious
Healing forces changes
Un-crucify my innocence
I dreamt of a beautifu
