if we only had one SaturdayAnd if we,if we only had one Saturday7 years ago in Other More Like This
You & I,
Only had one Saturday left,
I would bring us to an open field
Because there our emotions could escape freely.
And I would let you braid my hair for one last time
And I wouldn't mind how ridiculous I looked
Because that's what you like to do.
You would let me talk forever
And even sing, not caring if it hurt your ears.
In the sun I would get red
And you would get darker more,
No longer a vampire.
But for once you wouldn't let it bug you,
Because we'd be on our last Saturday.
I would cut your hair, letting the dye run out,
Leaving it curly and blonde
So that's how I would always remember it.
And you wouldn't even care, because that is how you're beautiful to me.
I would take photos,
So that even when I'm old and wrinkly,
And you're gone forever even more, I will always remember our last day.
We would both cry and laugh
And I hope that you'll let my velvet tears stain you,
So that you will have some way to remember me.
And I will be comforted by knowing
That no matter
Give me a ReasonGive me a reason why I shouldn't grab the knife,Give me a Reason4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
To ease my pain, to end life's strife.
Give me a reason why I shouldn't grab the gun.
All I ask is not several, but one.
Give me a reason why I shouldn't pull the rope.
Why shouldn't I? Ask anyone. I'm a dope.
Give me a reason why I shouldn't make the kill.
This pain, this suffering, it makes me ill.
No one would miss me if I were gone.
My fight has lost, the darkness has won.
My warm summer's day has become a cold winter's night.
The spark in my eyes is no longer very bright.
So give me a reason why I shouldn't grab the knife,
To ease my pain, to end life's strife

i am stubborn.
i am stubborn to the point of frustration sometimes.
to the point where even i want to give in
and stop arguing.
but i do not.
because i am stubborn.
i can never see my own problems
or worth worrying over.
i always put others first
no matter how much it hurts me
to do so.
when i am sad,
i make myself more sad.
i go looking for things that will make me feel worse.
i isolate myself
and just let myself be alone.
turn on a sad song,
i don't let people in.
when they ask how i am
i say good.
when i am not.
that's another thing.
i question myself at times.
and some days,
i'm scared of my own shadow.
i say the wrong things.
and i'm not always sure what the right ones are.
i can be too loud at times.
and inconsiderate as to how other people feel.
let me tell you,
there are many things.
i could change.

I love round numbers I've never hit 10k page-views before, not even on my older account after 3 years! I'm truly in awe ^^ So, as a really big thank you to all who have shown me support, I've decided to do my first ever give-away for reaching such a big number! I'm actually quite excited about it Read on if you want to be one of the winners for points!
I wasn't sure whether to give the whole 100 points to one lucky deviant, or to give 10 points to 10 lucky deviants so I made a poll (http://sarah-bk.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3478746/) - the results from those who answered were staggeringly close! The slight majority went to the second option I mentioned (at the time of writing of course), so you have 10 chances to be a winner of points! BUT, that is not all I have to offer! Since it isn't a grand prize, I decided to make things a little more

My Story about Depression, Suicide and AnxietyI don't really know why I am writing this, or why I have the sudden urge to post this on Deviantart where everyone can see. Maybe it's because I don't know another way to express my thoughts right now. Maybe its because I've never written down my situation in words and I feel that this is the time. Maybe it's because I hope someone out there reads this and understands what I'm going through.My Story about Depression, Suicide and Anxiety2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Depression. It's a word that many people have heard of, but only a select few know what it feels like to have it inside you. Depression, for me, is compared to the feeling of knives just about to plunge into your heart. You are constantly living in fear that death will be upon you if you even move a single inch. You are stuck in place, unable to move, unable to get help. You think nobody understands.
After a while of living in this fear, you start to think. You think that maybe you'd be better off if those knives would just kill you already. And if it's really bad, you'll start to think of ways you

Alongside Kaz-D, I am open to suggestions for Daily Deviations from the Photography Gallery in the following sub-galleries only:
People & Portraits [Only Classic Portraits, Emotive Portraits, Expressive, Infants and Children, Miscellaneous, Self-Portraits, Spontaneous Portraits, Weddings]
...basically any Photography sub-gallery without a Community Volunteer attached!
Tips & Hints
[Bullet; Blue] I like to take into account the Daily Deviations received in the photographer's past. Because of this, I am more inclined to feature those that have not already received a Daily Deviation in 2012, or have less than 3 Daily Deviations.
[Bullet; Blue] I like things to be natural where photography is concerned, so most effects should be simple and minimal, such

When less is MoreLife has been nice and slow for me lately. Maybe the pace of life is making me look at artwork a new way. I am finding work that has more form and figure than colors lately on my favs list. Some of the work featured are examples of Minimalism at it's best. Others are work that just have a wonderful look, they are maybe only two or three colors with great framing. I hope you like the features.

WaterI lap at your feet, welcoming you into my depths.Water6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Seducing your toes to step closer, wade further
Its a cool day, and I offer warmth and comfort
Begging you to swim, even though you know
That danger lurks with me
I entice your senses,
A single dance with the darkness
A sway into danger,
Cant be that bad,
WaterAll I asked was for a single glass of water. A glass, a cup, an ounce, a single drop would be enough. I knew you could see me dying there, my body draining itself of whatever resources were left, I know you heard me crying in the night, wasting precious tears in the hope of a little mercy. I licked them away as they fell as best as I could. I couldn't afford to waste them. It was a wonder I could produce tears at all, and there came a day when they finally stopped.Water6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
And I thought you had broke, when you came to me in the day, when the sun stole what little I tried to preserve. You held the thing I craved, you held life as far as I was concerned, and I drank without thinking, and you watched as I threw it up and convulsed. You tipped over a bucket of rainwater and watched me lap it up from the floor like a dog.
I asked for food. A crust, a crumb, anything to end the pain in my stomach. You gave me meat, stinking and crawling with maggots. You gave me bread hard as stone, my feeble
