Similar Deviations
You walk up to me.

I look at you like a cat that is unknowingly trying to imitate an emote.

As your approach comes to an end you put your arms out. Both going past my body on either side.
You smile.
Then simply, "Hug?"

I do not comprehend this word, your intent nor punctuation.

Your arms tighten around me and your chin rests on my shoulder.

I stand there
pondering
what is this new emotion.
A simple hug can change so much.. some were never told of the Hug.

Everything is better
with a bit
of bu
tt
er.
It seems so often that people tend to want more and MORE. Not of just butter but foods, clothes, shiny crap, and fame.
Is this just the way humans are or did society turn us this way like a school of fish?
Take smaller "bits", you'll enjoy it more next time.


I chopped up "butter" because well you don't need it all at once, right? ;)

When I stay up at night thinking
When I daydream in the middle of the day
When I sit and write my poetry
When I look into the digital sea that is the internet
When I smile or laugh at a joke with no meaning
When I zone out
When I lie down for the night
When I stare into the complete darkness before I depart to the land of dreams
I escape
Escape
I try to climb a wall to the rope that will allow me to escape
But the walls are to smooth
Patted down with the solid and smooth surface of pain
Sorrow
Misery
This thing I call life
Am I any good at it?
Am I going to fail as predetermined by the world?
Am I going to end and be represented as the nothingness that I see?
I try to escape these harsh questions…
But low and behold they follow me as if I packed them
Maybe I did
Between the socks and shirts…. No
With the toothbrush…. No
I think I packed it in the deep subconscious of the maze I call my mind
Unfortunately for me there is no escape
No solution
Just nothing…
Nothing…..
Nothing…..
My escape

MY BIG, FAT DRAGON

Warning: Don't read if you don't like big, fat, cuddly, draggies.

Chapter 2: Destined for Greatness

Fare was not your average 14 year old boy.  No matter what he did, no one would accept him for who he was.  Sure, you could blame it on the fact that he was a four-eyed brace-face looser who did nothing but watch T.V., surf the web, and play video games.  But the real problem lied deeper than that.  The real problem was his personality.  He was what most people would call "immature". Although he was 14 and in fact was mature, he had a deep, burning, passionate obsession, Dragons.  Of course everyone teased him about it, but he didn't mind. He was more of a loner himself and liked his space.  If he could he would much rather hang out with his pets and talk to them instead.  He always felt so awkward in large groups of people, but seeemed to feel right at home with animals.  Flare loved everything about Dragons.  Their scales, wings, power, everything!  Though there was one other thing he loved that none but his closest most trustworthy online friends (the few that he had) knew about, and that was fat.  There was nothing more beautiful to him than a fat Dragoness.  The several pictures and stories he had found about huge Dragons he had loved, and viewed frequently.  Just the thaought of one gave him a warm feeling inside.  Yet, he tried not to think about them to much, for the thought made him feel lonely.  There was an empty place in his heart that ached and only felt more empty whenever he got to involved in them or couldn't stop thinking about them.  He felt sure that that place would never be able to be filled by anything other than a fat Dragoness's gentle caress.  Many times his heart longed for one so badly that he was driven to the point of tears. But enough with the pity story.  You get the point.  He was a very sad and lonely and miserable kid without his fat Dragoness.  Our story officialy begins on September 16, 2007.  The day of Flare's 15th birthday, and also, the day his life, no, his world, shifted for the better.

Flare woke up bright and early that day.  Over the past week numerous good luck charms had found their way to him.  A five leaf clover, a lost penny, a dandelion wish, 3 fourtune cookies (with good fortunes), and a shooting star. Surely all good signs.  Today was guaranteed to be a good one.  Flare opened the blinds, and his heart sank.  Not only was it cloudy outside, but a full fledged thunderstorm was brewing, gale force winds, hail, and all.  There was no way anyone in their right mind would attend his party now, but it was probably for the better anyway.  He knew his parents probably got him cupcakes instead of a real one and most likely all he would get from them would be $5 bucks as a birthday present.  Anything was worth sparing him that embarrasment.  Sure enough, he was right all the way down to the last scent. His parents began singing the birthday song.
"happ.." they began. Flare was outraged.
"Mom! Dad! You know I hate that stupid baby song!"
"Well I think its cute," his mother said, "besides, you'll always be my baby." She reached out to pinch his cheek, but he pushed her hand away. His father, the jerk that he was, began yelling at him.
"Don't you raise your voice to me! If you're going to be like that then give my five bucks back!" Flare could have come up with a pretty good comeback, but knew better than to make his father angrier than he normally was, and submitted. "Yes, father."  He calmed down, though he did so reluctantly.  His mother went into the kitchen and came out with the birthday "cupcakes".  She set them down on the table in front of him.  "Now blow out the candles and make a wish."  Flare inhaled, closed his eyes, and made the biggest wish of his life.
"I wish I had a baby Dragoness.  One that I could make as fat as I want, and I'd always have enough food for her, dispite her insatiable appetite. I wish she and I could be alone together, without anyone to drag us down. I want her also as a friend that I can actually talk to, and she'd be able to understand and talk back. I wish she was real with all my heart. And i wish this world was a better place" A clap of thunder shook the house.  Far away, the Light had heard his request, and knew he was the one.  The one human out of all the others who was born out of Light, and not of Darkness.  Flare returned solomnly to his room. His mother callled after him. "But honey, don't you want a cupcake?" "No thanks. I'm not hungry." Flare glanced out the window.  It was quiet.  The thunderstorm had dissapered without a trace, and all it had left behind was the rain soaked leaves of the trees.  He decided instead to stay outside and play with the dogs.
Flare stayed outside until dark, he was a creature of both night and day.  He was just about to return inside when he glimpsed another shooting star.  For good measure, though he knew it would never happen, he repeated his wish again aloud.  But that wasn't just any shoting star, it was a glowing ball of pure light, the Light's phisical form, scanning the landscape looking for him.  It heard him loud and clear this time, and headed straight for him.  As you can pretty well imagine, when Flare saw it turn and head toward him, his first reaction was disbelief.  "It'll burn up way before it hits me."  But it didn't it kept on coming, and the closer it got, the brighter it grew. "Okay I guess there's a first time for everything." Flare turned and made a mad dash for his house, but the Light was too quick for him. It hit him just as he was reaching out for the doorknob, enveloping him in pure energy.  He struggled and kicked to get free, but to no avail.  All at once, he blacked out.
the second cahpter in my book, much more to do with the title than the last one. If you think it's getting interesting now, just wait until the third!

Put your misery into stiches.
Engrave your wounds on the wall.
Walk away from pain
Eventhough you turn your shoulder to look back
Feel your freedom coming
Slowly running up that hill
Where purple flowers remind you
You should escape long ago
Finally you know
You knew it all this time
It was not worth the efford
You are not a God to ressurect
No more heroic deeds
Protect yourself
Slowly running up that hill
Where purple flowers remind you
You will find something else
Brighter than before

It seems that DA suffers from an over-representation of female nude photography compared to other types of Nude Arts, and that male nude, especially, lacks the representation it deserves.

This petition proposes :
_To enlarge the nude photography category to a NUDE ART category.
_To split this nude art category into a FEMALE NUDE ART and a MALE NUDE ART categories, which would both have their own gallery director.

This would ensure a better representation of male nude and other sorts than photographic nudes in the Daily Deviations and on DA.
After talkings with other deviants and some reflection. I've come to this petition.
To "sign" it, just add it to your favs.

Hands, chest, fingers, back,
eyes with black hole tunnel heading
soulward, stoic, then sordid whispers,
distorted by shifting, lunging, lifting,
leaning forward, moving back,
supressing, depressing, undressing
expressing obsession, a predilection,
to erect a monument to a
lifetime of pent up good intent,
then spent and going slack, exhaling,
words failing, chest heaving, drinking the sound
of labored breathing, sweat dripping,
then slipping back into
the curtain of the dark of evening.
He said "This has potential."
I knew that.

The music changes.
The dam before a river of thought breaks.
Emotions, desires and dreams escape down onto yet another page.
A brush stroke on a virgin canvas.
Raindrops in an ocean, they hardly matter.

The things I keep in my heart and in my head are both fluid and concrete, the stones as well as the river.  Some break down as boulders into sand, while others flow onward...

to where, I don't know...
Something I jotted down a while ago. Both the words and they way they're written are a kind of glimpse into my thought process. It's not really long, probably my shortest piece yet, but it was never meant to be anything big. Just another raindrop....

Bah, what do I know, I was drunk when I wrote this....
