The very thought of home,
allows me that smile
which I once took for granted.
I long for that open door,
the welcoming gap
into warm familiarity.
Away from this,
All my misery.

Social PhobiaPeople scare meSocial Phobia1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
this world is a scary place
why is everyone staring at me?
They must think I'm not worth it
Hiding alone in the corner
crying my heart out
why is this world a scary place?
Why am I hiding all alone?
There is no true feeling
no fear that i ever had
a feeling of restlessness
a feel of hate and disgust
Why is it crowded around here?
why are they all looking at me?
I can't control these emotions
I need to hide from this world for good
Letters To A Stranger - two - DistanceDear Stranger,Letters To A Stranger - two - Distance1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I find it thrilling just how I can watch you die,
From a good, safe distance,
I watch as you helplessly squirm from side to side,
Eyes glint with relish as the blood
trickles down your tender face,
You fall to your knees, praying to God,
But he's in his heaven, far from this place,
Your sweet believe,
Won't save you this time,
Don't you miss to freely breathe?
The devils, my grip, is too persistent,
Your thoughts mix with mine,
All tired and fading,
Now that you die, I will be fine.

HateHate2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Vile cold word
Describes the most despised emotion
No one loves it
Everyone fears it
Its edges cut deep into tender hearts
Absorbed and relished by hollow hearts
There is no escape
It lurks in the darkest part of the mind
Waiting to strike at any moment
The moment where the mind fails
Nothing is left between Hate and the body
Hate mutilates all love and care
Leaves the flesh scarred and cold
There is no room for love
Hate consumes all
There is no escape.

Forming words, sentences and ideas,
Articulating fundamental truths,
An extension of the voice
That gives a writer strength to bear hardship.
What brutal insanity would prevail
If this was never again utilized?

do not try to stitch them back together with
people who don't deserve you.
you are dry elbows and skinned knees,
joints creaking ever so slightly with
last summer's memories -
(the way skin chaffed skin
voices shook in perfect unison
legs entangled like a web of hush)
bear the crookedness of your nose
like a burden of originality; you can thank God for it later.
smile like heaven's angels spit-shined your teeth.
you are a trophy
so win yourself over.
press your hands against the mirror
and tell the glass to read all that you've been through.
then, dare the reflection staring back at you
to say you're not enough.
you are greater than the disguises you decorate yourself with.
you are more than the masks you wear.
Emotions.I hate being in a heightened emotional state,Emotions.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Be it from pain, or just anguish from all life's hate.
I hate feeling like I'm about to cry, especially when I do,
Mostly how when it's in the little things, that I cry at like I do.
"What are you crying at?" Your poems to me, don't you realise?
"Why are you crying at them?" Because they're all lies.
I wish they weren't, and I wish I could believe them, I do,
But "I'm going nowhere"? You proved that wrong, didn't you?
Jennifer, I tell you again, that I love you,
But it hurts that you treat me the way you do.
I know it's not your fault, and I know we're back together,
But we broke up, and that stuff just doesn't heal right over...
Dear Teen MeDear teen me,Dear Teen Me1 year ago in Adult More Like This
I won´t ask you how you´re doing because I still remember very well. You´re sixteen now and ever so annoying as almost every teen is. You live with your father and his psychopathic girlfriend, who never loved her own children. You cry almost every night, hoping things will finally work out for you. That someday you will be happy. School sucks and you think you will always be alone because no one would love such an egoistic, annoying little brat like yourself. You don´t have a plan in life and your dreams for the future seem ridiculous and unlikely. You´re wearing cheap clothes and look just like you are: poor and miserable.
And there are so many things you don´t know yet. So many things you don´t want to accept. Like that our father loves you, but his women always a bit more. And that he´s very submissive to them, needing someone who tells him what to do. And of course our mother. I know you still worship her because you miss her so

To collect another precious soul
One whose eyes shone blue like the noon day sky
Whose frame once stood tall and strong
But sickness took all away
Your fragile frame now lays lifeless
But the glow around your face
Lets me know that you are in a better place
Comfortably you left this world in a coma
Leaving family and friends in tears
Of sorrow and joy
They can’t see you fly
Flying high in a comfortable way
Singing with the other angels who have come to guide you home
Pray for us in heaven
For here we feel so alone
Your presence is lost
And only memories remain
Here we hold a picture of you
To show one last time what your bright blue eyes looked like
How your smile could brighten the day
Hold us now
In your angelic arms
Give us comfort in this time
Breathe peace into our hearts
That life may go on
Be forever here to watch over us
Until the day we can meet again.

1. COLOR! :iconFABULOUSplz:
Curious isn´t? If you don´t believe it try to submit an image with only linearts and other with color, both are the same desing and KABAM! your colored one looks having more favs than your lineart sketch! Why?
Simple! Colors are very atractive and manipulate the emotions of people, if you color your draw like blue, they´ll feel calm and a little melancolic, if you paint it pink they´ll felt warm and happy! Yeah, it´s funny to believe a color can change everything and can control our way to see the things
Anatomy? My style is good, no thanks :iconwthplz:
haha, I thought the same, don´t worry, people loves different styles of bodies! We like to see fatties bodies or very very very skinny, exagered

Promises Of Today
The sands of time can be unpredictable
But to mold them is impossible
And being let down is typical
I, for one, know what it's like
Having that unrelenting doubt dwell inside
And withstanding all of those tears that aren't dried
With that said
I want to help you, my dear friend
For the hope of happiness is within the reach of your hands
I need to apologize for not always being there
It's because I have my own slate
But now I'm finally here
I'm sorry I'm late
I've been where you are
I've seen what you've seen
And I was able to break through the dark
But I'll go back for you, just to help you believe
That it can get better
If you truly want it to
The era of fear can be over
It just all depends on you
But I know
That not all of us are strong enough
And that's why a lot of people tend to let go
So I am here to lend my rough hands to help you up
You are so important
Even if you don't see it
You're such a wonderful person
So I know you deserve to make it through this

The flickering lights,
then dim and faint were they
as the water rose.
joined by the falling drops
from storm descending
down with a lifeless energy.
Upward came each splash,
and back down with a dying sound.
At random was the already spontaneous
of every moment in the life
of every last drop.
So blended now, in the ripples
with the ever uneasy waters.
Like the flickering lights,
did their time become dim and faint.

"Art and friendship are absolutely connected... Friendship is, after all, sharing a deep part of yourself with another person and receiving the same back." --- Nina Allen Freeman
"The medium is the message" --- Marshall McLuhan
Semiotic dreaming may be recognized &/or understood in the quote by Marshall McLuhan, "One thing about which fish know exactly nothing is water, since they have no anti-environment which would enable them to perceive the element they live in."
'California Dreamin' is a [The] Mamas & The Papas song title, & seems appropriate as dA is a Hollywood, California based company. The text was inspired by, & dedicated to my friend, Writto. Also a thanks to WW, laA, LaG, & all my friends
