ColorblindI gave away my name today
and it might be a metaphor, but I think
we only remember the quietest suicides
the walls are thin enough to listen
as the angels try to scratch free;
bloodied fingernails and God says everyone
screws up, sometimes
I'm waiting for a silent night.
I only ever believed in solid ground
and depressions' tides, and sometimes,
those little wounds I nursed deep
within my vocal chords (because
my voice is dying, too)
I can see the beautiful people, now
overdosing on their own opiums of
self-acquittal and dissolution
they ran out of ways to ask for help.
I'm fragile, but my glass ribs
aren't holding much
and I'm through trying to find something
different, because it's scary to know
what exactly's the same
yesterday I was someone else and
tomorrow I'm further into inevitabilities of
who I promised I'd never be--
I'm waiting for a happy ending,
but if you love something
you let it go.
BirthUntil the ovum opened like ghost skin,
Pooled like the ocean
And poured from my mouth.
I wasn’t aware of how god-like
We sinners could easily be.
The Widow and the WeedThe Widow crouched down besides the skylight of the warehouse, watching the activity inside. Below, about twenty people worked with chemistry equipment. They were producing a drug known on the street as Nail. It had recently been introduced as a knock-off of Spike, although the high didn't last as long and it was too impure to make Benders or Venus from. However, it was cheaper than Spike, with only a slight profit being made off of it. The Canadian Syndicate, the group producing it, was giving up massive profits to undercut their competition. However, it was also increasing drug related deaths as well as theft and related crimes, and that was why the Widow was going to put a stop to it.
After a few minutes of observation, she had most of the information she needed. The men and women working were all gang members. Unlike many gangs, the Syndicate didn't enslave people to work in their drug labs, so she could attack without having to worry about harming innocents. The only person she di
IsolationBehind the smiles and laughter,
The sheer happiness displayed,
Behind all that layer of generosity,
The respect presented,
Conceals a loneliness and timidity in her façade,
All but shy, she still puts up that fake,
That false sense of being,
In the fifteen years of her life.
Although caring, and although loving,
She knows she can't find where she belongs,
And that only serves the isolation she knows is deep down
A true meaning behind her existence.
In case she wonders,
In case she hopes,
In case she wishes,
In case she even dares,
She'll in the end be separated from those
That is found as her best friend.
And even then, despite immunity to keep a forever companion,
She'll discontentedly put up her sham of a pretense,
Because she'll know she doesn't belong,
Can't search for that place where she'll fit right in,
Since she's all but a 15-year-old girl,
Too young to run,
Too young to live alone,
Too young to hide,
Too frightened to scurry from the protec
EmbraceSometimes we need to stop
analyzing the past,
to figure out precisely
how we feel,
with our mind and what we want
in our hearts,
we have to go with
Because when everything you have
you will be left with nothing
and for once, just once
we just stop
and smell the roses,
things will be different
You will be left
with your faith
and that's all you need to embrace.

Hi - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)
Here are some of my favorite youtube artists, that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.
'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other. Level Up has expanded a host team by amazing Jonas De Ro (JonasDeRo ) There are weekly, 2 to 3-hours long livestreams with critiques, overpaintings and Q&A's. It's so wonderful to watch them paint and talks about important tips on art and life as an artists. Also check out their lovely Facebook group and website with lots of resources.
Art videos that inspire, instruct, and entertain by Sycra Yasin ( Sycra ), who is a freelance artist and online art instructor on YouTube and PencilKings.com. His videos are so educational and he explains art fundamentals so wisely and quite great to understand. He also has a lots of resources on his website.
Have a wonderful week!
