or song as clear as
but ever into her starry skies
drawn into abysmal depths
by the promise
of a ravaged warmth,
somewhere near the centre.
at the zenith of her autumnal beauty,
I find myself lost;
her brilliant voice
in prosepoetry elegance
shall whisper "I love"
into corroded dark
and tear all of the roadblocks
from my mind.
Bleach OC: Gingitsune KaenBleach OC: Gingitsune Kaen3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Name: Gingitsune Kaen
Age: 324 (Appears to be in his early-twenties)
Alliance: 5th Division Captain
Appearance: Captain Gingitsune Kaen stands at a very modest 5'10" and weighs about 135 pounds - all of it is toned muscle. This slender form is often taken as a sign of weakness by those who don't know Kaen's capabilities, but his friends and comrades know that a surprising quickness and strength hides within his frame. His brown hair is cut in a style called a "buzz-cut" in the real world, and that small amount of hair is barely visible under a black skull-cap with a red bulls-eye on the front. His light brown eyes are almost the same color as his tan skin, which makes them somewhat disarming should he begin to stare at someone. In both ears are dozens of piercings that Kaen has designed himself, but the skull-cap covers all but the bottom few. The charms that show when his hat is on are mostly ornate silver rings th

As arithmetic has always shown.
But it's this that's made me wholly see
A formula before unknown.
Thus I struggle sorely to impute
Any form of logic to this love.
I cannot manage to compute
What this racing heart's indicative of.
To my dismay, I cannot derive,
Any sense to this new affection.
But it's this very confusion that keeps me alive,
Though I desperately fear a certain rejection.
By parenthesis, we're set apart,
Such a hopeless equation I long to pursue.
But I hope someday to hold your heart,
And I vow with conviction I'll factor through.
Whole numbers are what I once desired,
In such a sum I yearned to be.
But integers are dull and tired
And this repeating decimal intrigues me.
All I required, I learned not in school,
The only whole number that matters is "2".
I don't care about timeworn theorems and rules-
I want to add with you.
A Moment Captured From The Drivers SeatA Moment Captured5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My fingers were numb by the time I got to Catherines house. I had the heater up full blast, angled towards my hands, and it was only starting to help. I pulled my shiny new SUV into the driveway that was already covered in two inches of snow. I loved having four wheel drive. Catherine was already waiting on her front doorstep, and she sprinted up as I parked my car. She held her hat on as she ran with her white scarf trailing out behind her. She yanked open the door, a big goofy grin on her face.
Hey Kitcat! were the only words that escaped my mouth before a snowball hit me square in the face. Aweee Cat, I whined. It went down my shirt! I did a little dance in my seat, pulling on my sweater trying to get the snow to come out the bottom. She did nothing but laugh at me. Hey, its not funny, I just got warm! I protested.

Now before you get up in arms about this let me say something first.
At one time I considered reading it and I actually did read it eventually when a friend of mine, who actually is not a friend anymore, suggested I should. Well I did read it. I read a LOT of the pages. Over 1000 or so. I started out with the trolls because "it's not good until you reach them". So I started reading from there.
Edit: As of November 9th I have read the comic from the beginning... yeah still boring.
I can say this... I didn't see what the big deal was. Most of the time the characters would sit in their houses and chat on the computer. Oh every once in awhile something would happen but it wasn't all that interesting. To be honest the only character I liked was Terezi even if she is rather crazy. The comic, to me, was rathe

You never mention the word "disorder" in certain company.
That's a defense mechanism, rewriting song lyrics in my head as the uncomfortable silence drags on. Not that it's really silent, ever, in a hospital. Machines whir in the background like insect hives, nurses flit (or stomp, depending on inclination) from bed to bed, and some janitor or orderly inevitably rattles by the room with a bucket of vomit or cart of soiled bedding.
So not quiet, then, but certainly uncomfortable. She avoids my eyes, fingering the roses on her lap. Everything in hospitals is blue-and-white, a sick, sterile periwinkle that I suppose is supposed to be cheery. The sheets leach the red from the roses. I'm blue, anorex-da-ba-di.
Naked, she is a lesson in skeletal anatomy, shrunken skin pulled tight on bones ungirt by flesh. In this half-recline bed, I can see only her beautiful face floating above the covers, a corpse-

Perfect Criminal, Closest FriendI knew a boy of age fifteenPerfect Criminal, Closest Friend2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The nicest guy I've ever seen
A caring friend, my closest bud
I loved him so, like flesh and blood
We were connected through heart and soul
Without the other, we weren't whole
When we were together, my world was bright
Now that he's gone, I've lost the light
It's more than just another death
Everything crumbled when he left
He stole my laugh, my smile, my joy
He isn't just another boy
To his grave he brought a part
Of me that resided in his heart
My dearest friend, why have you robbed me?
Instead of my smile, wouldn't you prefer money?
A piece of gold, five silver rings
Why do you insist on breaking my wings?
With you I used to rule the sky
With you my wings would take me high
Now that you're gone, these wings are vestigial
Now that you're gone, this pain is perennial
Come back to me, my only friend
You promised together we'd see the end
As well as a thief, are you a liar, too?
For all these years I believed you
You've killed a part of me, homicide

And how long will you love me?
When I think about us, I always find myself asking the same questions?
When will you leave me?
Will it hurt very much?
Why will you fall out of love?
I want to believe in you when you say forever.
I want to be sure that my heart will not soon be broken.
I want to you to love me as much and as long as I love you.
But that is foolish.
There is no way to be sure you mean forever.
There is no guarantee my heart will not be broken.
I can never know how much you love me.
But what I do know is my love for you.
I love the way your lips move as you whisper the word forever.
I love the feeling of my heart fluttering when in your presence.

The dynamic between core staff, volunteer staff, and the community can at times be pure quality dArama.
It's worth noting that for years I've worked pretty hard to remain neutral on community politics. Today, I'm going to shatter that concept.
Needless to say, I am extremely politically aware of the inner workings of the deviantART community. I read *a lot* of journals, comments, forums, chat rooms. I have fake accounts. I spy.
But I don't spend my time talking politics, instead I focus internally at deviantART designing technologies and implementing understandings with core staff to address the issues I see pop up.
It's time to take a moment to be a bit more petty.
In the inner workings of our politics exists the soul of deviantART. What is this place? What was it meant to do? What does it do? What could we do better? And it's the politics that give insight into how well the greater plan is running.

Love like spring
Comes at the start and blossoms slowly,
shyly emerging from a pure heart.
Love like summer
Progresses like fanned flames,
Consuming a person with the immortal fire of passion.
Love like autumn
Passes by quickly
And comes again soon.
Love like winter
Stays with you like white snow
That disappears quickly.
But a love like ours is not like that,
Not like summer or spring, autumn or winter.
It's indescribable in everything,
Lasting forever, our undying love.
