just so you'll maybe

Constant battle between remembering and forgettingI never liked geography.Constant battle between remembering and forgetting1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not because of the boarders.Not because of the towns.
But because it's painful to admit how much the distance hurts.
I never liked literature,either.
Not because I didn't like to read.Not because I didn't like to write.
But because in every word I saw him.
I never liked music.
Not because I hated music,I loved it.Not because I wasn't good at it,I was.
But because in every note,I heard his melodic voice.
But,I hated history the most.
Not because it was hard to remember,but because it made it impossible to forget.

must one feel
when they are
with no human feelings
often taken for granted
as mechanical tools
By what manner

Where a lone robot
during its shutdown phase
does not immediately
go to sleep
but chooses to sit
in a darkened room
- alone -
before a metallic desk
where sits a candle
waxy runnels of lines
forming solidified liquid
frozen in drips
on the edge of desk
piece of sheet metal
on the surface
Laser stylus in quiet hand
the robot looking outwards
but dreaming inwards
trying to find the words
that has brought
a tear of translucent liquid
from the optical sensors

Memories of SpringMemoriesMemories of Spring2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
of spring's from years past
are like those that bring back
yearnings of my childhood beliefs
with warm days that evaporate
after nights of long rainfall
the scent of morning breeze lightly permeated
with the opening of buds
from newborn flowers and plants
As I sit here
writing a memoir
I'm often fondly reminded
of the sounds of spring
with birds that sing
and the sun's slow glide across meadows
filled with the hypnotic sway of honeysuckle
and the buzz of bees
busy about their tasks
And, I suppose
the one thing I remember the most
is the sound of the music from the calliope
as the Spring Fair
comes to town
ThievesMy heartThieves2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Gone from my grasp.
A simple traveler
who made my heart beat,
but now is gone,
flying with the wind.
I never took the second
to reveal my heart
and say three words.
Now I follow the wind
with the sun at my back,
chasing a thief.
This is me
taking a risk,
taking a chance.
Ready to experience
heaven on earth
and just as he has stolen my heart,
I steal a chance
that I'll capture his.
Marilyn Manson...Marilyn Manson...10 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
What thought comes to mind when you hear the name, Marilyn Manson? Do you imagine a musician, or do you imagine a musician that is known as a bad influence? A weirdo? Maybe even a freak?
Well hopefully by the end of this lecture I can change that automatic reaction to this name.
I will back up, one by one, as many reasons as I can possibly think of, as to why Marilyn Manson is seen as an outsider or sadistic individual.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Brian Warner aka Marilyn Manson, He is the lead singer of the band Marilyn Manson. I will give you a short description of him.
A prejudice person's perceptive would be something like: He looks like a 'Goth'. He wears black clothes and wears pale make-up.
An open-minded, unbiased perceptive would be that: Marilyn Manson dresses unrestrictedly. He goes to the extreme. He wears black clothes; he has long black hair and does wear a lot of make up.
I recognize that maybe he is classed as an outsider

He likes little dogs
But they get so darned tired
From retrieving his logs
Walk past his window
Look through his door

A new gas tank

Every night you're dancing to the same old song
Not knowing what could go wrong
You keep coming back for more
Waking the dead , sending them into a rage .
Grave dancer you've been warned
Turn around and leave these grounds
A dire message you didn't conceive
Grave dancer can't you hear them calling ?
Don't you fuck with our grave
We'll rip out your eyes , pulling you inside
No one will ever hear your cries
You'll never see daylight
Grave dancer with your life you'll pay
Grave dancer you're going to decay
You finally realized the dead don't sympathize
Grave dancer you've met your demise ...

He gave me a look as if he were suggesting I was the middle aged man without clothes in the room.
"Sir, I received a call not more than an hour ago from your secretary. She was rather distressed"
"Oh! Elizabeth? What ever for, chief inspector?"
Then came the silence, and it smiled at me incredulously, daring me to test a sound from my throat. My mouth jumped hurdles of air; I must have been standing there for a minute with my jaw swinging and words dying, the corpses sliding off my lips. I probably looked like an aroused goldfish.
"Mr..." I was trying very hard to forget he was a 'mr' at this moment.
"...Boris, your receptionist was rather concerned when she came into your office to see you, and saw a lot more of you than she was hoping to..."
It was a newly modernised office besides the wall-long colonial era bookshelves; furniture that challenges the definition of 'chair' and 'desk', some confusing artworks hu
DeathThought of death kills me....Death11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even when I hear complete stranger died
I feel wave of sadness wash over me and I cry,
I don't know why,I've been that way ever since I was child
I remember,I was four or five,
An old man was on TV,holding a speech,
I asked my mum "Who is he?",she told me it was Pope,
Later that night,I found out that he died.
I remember,I hid in the hallway and I cried.
It had nothing to do with religion nor with God,
I just felt really sad for the old man that had to die
Ten years later,my grandma comes to visit,
She tells me our old neighbour has died,it came as no surprise,
She was old and sick,it was just matter of time,
But sadness and pain hit me just as hard,
For I felt sorry for old woman that had to die
Death has never scared me,
I understand it is natural part of life,
But everytime it comes and takes another life,
I feel like part of me dies
And emptiness that washes over me,
Strong urge to cry....
Death softly kills me,every time it takes a life,
Part of me fo

and you always put a smile on my face

Interview with Slinkers
Welcome to ASKtheARTIST! Today we will be interviewing the artist behind a number of popular comics and Flash animations on deviantART, Slinkers.
Firstly, I want to begin by thanking you Slinkers for agreeing to do an interview with us at such a late hour.
*Unadzuki asks "Where do you get your ideas?"
Arrrgh a hard question to start with! Hard because I can't really explain where I get them. I'm assuming it's from day to day life, but I don't actually get the ideas until I sit down in front of my computer with a master plan to make an animation/comic. I sit there, decide what I feel like drawing... then I make the idea up as I go along. This doesn't always work, and I often waste hours on duff ideas. But then I get a good one and make it!

Not at all. I started on DA randomly beca
Clockwork MasqueSilence in the dust on the floorClockwork Masque2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
heavy drapes of velvet embraced in shadow
old candelabra hanging
forgotten and alone
Footsteps soft and mellow
a crickety shuffling
of rhythm in walking
arched over shadows by candle light moving
The old man of duty shuffled onwards
wearing frayed shirt of striped cotton
braces holding up trousers from the floor
away from the mouths of hungry mice
Ambling with actionable intent
he bent over the glass dome
in the centre of the ballroom
standing on an old table of rosewood
Inserting brass key into wooded slot
twist...and...twist...and twist again
until no more turns were needed
and looking down he thought about the past
Seeing the miniature scene again
of a ballroom coming to life
mirror image of the room he now stood in
mechanical gears moving with clicks and clacks
Under dome lights brightened
the sound of the orchestral waltz played on
as the dancers moved with clockwork grace
above a brass plaque inscribed: CLOCKWORK MASQUE - VENICE, '1875'

To keep evil forever at bay,
And the fiercest foes rout,
When they hear triumph's shout,
Dragonborn, for your blessing we pray,
And the Scrolls have foretold,
Of black wings in the cold,
That when brothers wage war come unfurled,
Alduin bane of kings,
Ancient shadow unbound,
With a hunger to swallow the world.

By: Jake T. Wolfe
As the 22nd day of October approached, Daniel Wolfe could hardly contain his excitement. His big brother, Jake Wolfe, had promised that it would be a day that he would never forget. That Monday night, the local football team; The Alexandria Assassins, with starting quarterback Travis McPhearson, the younger brother to Trev McPhearson – a member of J-Unit with Daniel – would be playing their greatest rivals, The Jackson Warriors. So far, The Assassins were undefeated and Monday Night Football would test them, since The Warriors were also undefeated.
“I’m going to dedicate my first Touchdown pass to you, Daniel,” Travis stated on the 20th of October after the team’s practice.”
“That would be great, Uncle Travis,” Daniel replied.
Travis smiled and hugged Daniel, who hugged back. Jake and Trev smiled as well, since over that past couple of months, all of J-Unit got to know the entire Assassins

Because He cannot hurt you
Listen to the man
and do as he says
to avoid a fiery end
to keep you sitting up straight
You think you are willing
Because your daddy said so
Don't you wanna see mom again
Tie your hair up tight
and close your knees
Smile with your teeth
your jaw tight
What you say is wrong
So listen well child
and I'll tell you how to live.
