Ups and DownsHas there ever been a time, when your life felt so bad
That you just want to cry and go to bed
It really feels like it's the end, but it's just getting started.
Hopeless thoughts swirl around my head – is this madness I have entered?
But then there was a ray of light
Thrown to me like a coil of rope
And so I let myself hope
So now each day seems a little brighter
While the darkness grows ever slighter
Then the shadows came back
Something in my mind went crack
And so I sat alone in my bed
Now things are bad,
But will only get worse.

February 15th 2013 was a milestone for my time on deviantart! Its my 10 year anniversary! Wow, that is quite something! I can't believe its been that long since I first joined the site!

DisappearShe often fled her house in the night, the door slamming shut behind her, bare feet cooling in the dewy grass.Disappear3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Those feet ran and ran, and ran some more, 'til she reached the edge of town. Her feet led her to a bridge.
She'd stand on the rails, and gaze down into the darkness of the chasm, listen to the river below.
Scream out to the sky. Screaming at her life. Screaming at the pain.
But every day, despite it all she always came back home.
The night of her sixteenth birthday, she ran out into the rain.
Desperately, wildly, her hair in tangles and mud on her dress.
She ran and ran, and her feet led her to that bridge. She stood on that railing, like every other day.
She screamed, and she screamed. Her tears mixed with the rain and the mud washed away.
She gazed out into the darkness of the night, at the lights glittering at the edge of town.

Minicontest! 5 colors only!I was about to sleep and came up with a contest idea, so Im typing it down before I go to bed!Minicontest! 5 colors only!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please do not join my contests if you are a sore loser and will complain if you do not win! I am getting very tired of seeing people complain and hate themselves for not getting a placement, I dislike people fishing for symapthy. There are a lot of people entering my contests and not everyone can win. I like to give out high prices which means less places. Drawing should be fun and not just to earn some prizes. Thank you!

Be sure to read all the rules!!
Read the comments to see if a question you migth have is already answered
You can only use 5 colors (this includes black and white)

A language that everyone speaks.
But one that we are not able to hear.
A place where emotions and abandonment meet.
Of which we are forced to confront our buried fears.
There are no more lessons that the agents of society can teach.
An infinite amount of words expressed through a solitary tear.
People dish out advice but never practise what they preach.
A language with the same traits as a hopeful prayer.
A society where people judge others, as they sit back in their self proclaimed seats.
They can no longer understand you and they aware of the darkness that draws near.
Many lives led but we are all accompanied by the same drumbeat
Maybe you don't want to be heard but people will forcefully lend an ear.

Lab Coats: Parts I, II, III"Curious creatures are they not? Just kind of stumbling around, aimless, pointless, maybe even worthless," mused the First one.Lab Coats: Parts I, II, III3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The Other one did not speak. There was no need to - the First always did enough talking for the both of them - so instead he leaned back and allowed the First to continue.
"I do wonder what Ugly will make of them."
The Ugly one was, aesthetically at least, a box, and nothing more could be said in favour of her physique. But when it came to matters of the mind - Aha! - that was where she shone. She was precise and methodical in her manner, cruel and honest when she spoke, and she was relied upon by the First and Other for these very qualities.
"I mean. I guess they're alive, in a technical sense you understand. It's just that, well, I'm not sure it should count, you know? As a whole, they don't really do much."
The First paused to think, chewing pensively on whatever it was that had found its way into his mouth.
The Other chose not to add anyt

You make me feel like shit.
Sometimes with you i just want to fucking quit.
It seems like we should be so happy, with everything we have.
We have it all....or do we?
Everything isn't good enough sometimes...all the time.
And i don't really know what this is supposed to say.
It might not make sense to you in any way.
But in every way i feel... like something is making this ill.
Its so bipolar the way things are.
Some days its so good.
Some days its so bad.
But i just really wanted to say.

Am I Worthy?Am I Worthy?Am I Worthy?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe I don't deserve all the views and the comments.
Maybe there are better writers out there that deserve acknowledgment.
Maybe I am not worthy of any recognition and attention.
Personally I don't think my work is not even worth mentioning.
Maybe my words wont amount to anything substantial.
Maybe I wont make it in terms of a financial,
Atonement but can we just think for one moment
That maybe I write to express my thoughts on a page.
To release all the feelings held hostage in this mortal cage.
Maybe others can relate and reciprocate my words.
And to you this notion may seem insulting and absurd.
But all these favourites and feed back gives me an added purpose.
And for that split second when reading them, I feel like I actually deserve this.
That my whole hearted words are not dispensable and worthless.
That maybe I can actually make something of myself.
Give the people something real to purchase from life's obscure shelf.
Give my parents the life that they so jus

ShynessEverybody knows that feelingShyness3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking at somebody half dreaming
Thinking about what it would be like
If the two of you were alike
We don't want to face rejection
Fearing that we worsen our self reflection
When we talk to them all we can do is stutter
Sometimes we just need a little courage
Everybody has courage no matter what their age
So whenever you're feeling shy
Don't just stand there and sigh
Remember that just 20 seconds is enough
Even if it's all just bluff
Believe in yourself
Cause when it comes to love
You are the only person that could beat yourself

EDIT2://Lots of people have been showing interest and entering for Part 1 and I'm in love with so many of these awesome entries! I have decided to award 300 points to one or two extra entries in exchange for the rights to the image and clothing. This is because some entries are similar when you peel off their clothing yet when clothed, are very unique. In the end for my persona, I'll probably combine the 2-3 winning entries for a final look, possibly with alternate outfits from the winning entries. Once this has been judged, I'll note the winners with this offer and it's up to you whether you want to accept or not! Thank you~
