AttentionYou say that you're in pain?
Funny, I don't see a wound
You say you want to die?
I doubt you'd even try
The scars on my arms are hidden
Yours are on display
I drown in my own agony
While you float above
Yet they still come to rescue you
And leave me there to die
Because I'll never shout for help
You have it all
Yet act like you have nothing
I have little
Yet I'm still glad I have it
You speak of the pain
But I'm the one who feels it
I need the help
Yet you're the one who gets it
I don't pity you, not anymore
Go cry for attention
I'm not giving you any

an empty shell
a hollow carcass of brittle bones and rotting teeth
She is beautiful
bright patterns and rainboots
Her smile is true
and she love the world she lives in
He is a rebel
Never still and never truthful
He loves running across the street just as a car comes
it gives him such a high
She is quiet
a book worm
She spends her time in dimly lit corners in rundown bookstores
hiding away from the world
She is imposive and violent
loves to fight
Her emotions are stronger than the rest
taking her over in a matter of seconds
They are all me
but I am none of them
and I haven't seen them in many years
though I hear from them everyday
Their voices haunt me
their hands touch me in the dark
clawing to be freed
for they are why I am empty
they fill me and push away the person I truly long to be
The person that I need to be
in order to stay alive

I hate you for making me act this way.
I hate you for saying we'll be together...some day.
I hate you because there's no price I wouldn't pay.
I hate you for making me feel again.
I hate you for leaving again.
I hate you for bringing the rain.
I hate you because now there's nothing but pain.
I hate you for making me hurt him.
I hate you for making me betray him.
I hate you for filling my heart to the brim.
I hate you because being without you is like missing a limb.
I love you for being there.
I love you for taking me there.
I love you for being the one to care.
I love you because life just isn't fair.
This Valentine's DayPlastic roses and shattered dreamsThis Valentine's Day3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
All of these from Valentine's past
My heart is bursting at the seams
Just how long will this pain last?
For two long years I've felt this way
Yet I keep my feelings locked inside
And now I'm alone on Valentine's Day
Because of this love I try to hide
Heart shaped boxes full of lies
An "I love you" not meant for me
Last night I killed my butterfly
Because you and I will never be
I love you, I will now say
For I may not be here
This Valentine's Day
In Love With A HeartbreakerWhat is this emotion? What is it like?In Love With A Heartbreaker4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Surely you must know
For so many love you so
The all loved you
Yet you broke their hearts
And every time when they asked why
You just said, "It didn't feel right."
Well guess what?
I love you too
But I'm smarter than the other few
I know the games you play
You say you like them, I've heard it too
But in the end you turn them away
All they ever did was love and care
Yet all you did was give an icy stare
And say, "I'm sorry, but I can't love you."
So why must I love you too?

The gem that outshines all others,
The laugh of the happiest girl.
Without him, I'm invisible.

A hopeless nightmare,

Had me on the mend,
But like all good things,
This too must end.
It's time this suicidal poet,
Swapped her pen for her blade,
After all the cutter's rules,
Must always be obeyed.
So now I'll say a fond farewell,
A sad so-long and sweet goodbye,
And know that as I leave you all,
It's crimson tears I cry.
What can I say my friends?
Thanks so much - it's been a blast!
As I lift this cold dead metal,
And take this sorry life at last.

Sometimes I feel like everyone can see how flawed I am.
That there is nothing in there.
Behind this fake smile, Clothes and make up.
There is nothing to see.
I can't understand how anyone can like me.
I realise around people I thought were my friends,
That they actually don't.
They just talk to me to be nice,
but I know what they are thinking.
That I'm not worth takling to.
That I'm just the stupid emo kid,
Who hangs with them so she won't be alone.
I know they don't want me around.
I mean who can blame them?

difficult to some on the inside
and very simple on the outside.
No I'm not made of plastic.
No rubber feet, no spring inside me.
In fact, I'm just skin and bones.
I don't run on batteries;
don't expect me to run out of juice.
I'll always help when needed.
You may call me a joke.
But when you need some confidence,
I have all the reassurance you need.
I have no rubber,
but I'm very flexible.
Nobody's dilemma is too much.
Please don't press me. I'm ticklish.
Simply call for me;
I can put your mind at ease.
And if you believe I can't fix your problem,
I just may have to gloat:
"That was easy!"

On this sad and subjugated one...
Among the riddled world of festering lies
Broken truths and darkened skies
A glacial wind on his fledgling face
Some time has gone by, he's left no trace
The tracks are gone, covered and swept
Those promises she never kept
These hovering words begin to rust
Descending down and into dust
The child's tears have turned to glass
His body cold, she ran so fast
A shattering scream, a wailing cry
Her little boy she left to die
Deviant DiscoveryDeviant Discovery3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
WHAT IS DEVIANT DISCOVERY?
Deviant Discovery is a weekly Journal Feature that focuses specifically on Deviants that have good art, but haven't gotten much attention for it. Every week, a new Deviant will be chosen, and a few of their artworks will be show in this Journal, along with a description of the artist themselves. This weekly feature will serve as an attempt to get under-appreciated artists more attention then they already have.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It will work in a similar way to Daily Deviations - either I could select a Deviant myself, or someone could be suggested by another Deviant. Once a Deviant is chosen, we'll find their best five Deviations to be featured in the Journal. Then, we'll give a short description of the artist's work, and a small explanation of why they were chosen. The feature will remain on the front of my page for seven days [168 hours; one week], so that the Deviant can get continuous attention. Suggestions could be s

One razor blade.
One way out.
Two different meds.
Two packets for each.
Hanging in the brink.
Three hearts to break.
The sorrow never ends.
This is the way i save my soul.
From the pain, the suffering.
And woe untold.
I can't continue in a world filled with hate,
For those who are different,
Or with poor mental state.
Four tablets down.
Seems like a hundred to go.
They burn my throat.
As i try not to choke.
I do not regret,
These desicions i've made.
My mind is set,
The goal is no pain.

It is the early morning a heavy fog has coated the ground making it hard to see where I am putting my feet. My breath is heavy and my senses are on high alert, I pass by a coral and kept walking on and half way to my destination I hear small sound that sounds like old hinges that are way over do for an oiling. My breath hitches but I continue on until I get to my destination the air seemed like daggers in my throat as I saw the sight before me an old wooden swing was rocking and upon the swing is a body without its head. I continue to watch in terror as something appears upon the lap of the body that is swinging the swing, slowly it starts to morph into a head with blood slowly dripping down from its neck for a moment I am memorized by the blood just slowly dripping down from the neck onto its legs and into the heavy fog. Until I hear the head start to say "why didn't you save me?" I look up into the heads face to see it is my sister's face glar

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

As they fall dawn to the floor.
I'm sorry, it's just that,
I'm not your Angel anymore.
See the blackened scars,
That stain this battered frame,
The marks of pure self hatred,
Oh, Isn't it a shame?!
See the rope burn round the throat,
That you once so gently kissed,
But you don't really care do you?
This Angel won't be missed.
Don't you see you caused this,
By feeding me your lies,
Now you can stand and watch,
As your former Angel dies.
Drarry fanfic Pt 5 Draco closed his eyes and wound his arms around the Gryffindor's waist. He felt Harry put his arms around his neck and deepen the kiss. All the confusion melted away, everything was perfect. Draco felt Harry pull away, but he held him tight. He didn't want the magic to end, not just yet. He didn't want to wake up from this dream, not just yet. He didn't want to sink back into reality, not just yet. In his heart, he knew it'd have to end and he'd have to wake up and go back to the cold reality of what his friends, let alone his father, would do if they found out, but not just yet. Harry obliged and kissed him again, even more passionately than the first time, giving Draco a few more moments to feel his stomach fill with butterflies and the electricity race down to his toes.Drarry fanfic Pt 53 years ago in Romance More Like This

As your mouth twists up its lies;
Strain to think but you wont see
how these lies hurt me inside.
I shouldn't care, i paste my grin on;
This selfishness i hide.
Never want to be a burden
So Flaws control my Life.
Sit and watch my fantasies
Before they all burn down.
I talk at you, you try to see
But you'll never understand.
It may be true to say the least,
You're not an honest man;
So when your Faux love finally ceased
Not a tear was found.
