ThoughtsI thought I could call you a best friend,
I thought that in the worst of times,
you'd be there for me.
I thought I could tell you my deppest
of secrets,with no worries of anybody
That I could cry on your shoulder
when I needed,
That you would always give me hand,
That in the darkest of times,
you would light the way to
That laughter made our bond stronger,
That death was our only seperation.
I thought that when everyone abandoned me,
you would be next to me.
I was abandoned and you were not next to me,
I thought wrong of you,
None of my thoughts came true.
But then again my thoughts never
Where It Does Not ShineA parting glance in the room,Where It Does Not Shine2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
A flirtation down the hall,
A smirk dancing on lush lips,
A pair of wandering eyes align.
Unheard whispers ready to bloom,
Breaths lost in forbidden fall,
Sentences trailing down hips,
Hands seeking desire's sign.
Unless you can meet me
where it does not shine,
I doubt I will be thine.

they're going to have you in their arms and they're going to feel right.
only to you will apologizing feel natural.
you're going to be their motivation and their assurance.
they're not going to know what to say or how to say it. but they will.
your smile will grab hold of them by the collar.
your eyes will pierce into theirs and there they will fall.

Were no doubt there
And you shared them with me
Thank God, I swear.
But not too long later,
As I think over,
I slowly lose the emotion.
I don’t know what to tell you,
I surely don’t know how!
It was never a one night stand,
We still haven’t held hands,
And my lips are still a virgin to others.
Though I know how this goes
Yet I don’t I don’t remember
How to let you know
I want us to be over.
So soon it happened
It will be.
My feelings to you

I have listed all the entries that have been accepted to the group. If your entry is not there, please comment or note the founder!
I am so excited about how well the contest gone so far. Over 100 entries! I had not originally figured we'd have so many when I put together the voting system, so I'll be tweaking it a bit.
Voting starts tomorrow, Sept. 3, EDT. I will be splitting the entries into 3 sections. These entries will be submitted as three separate journals that will be up for voting for about 2 weeks. (The journals will be submitted one after the other, not at the same time.) The top 4 entries from each journal (12 altogether) will go into a fourth and final journal, where the winners will be voted on and determined.
Voting rules, as well as a recap of what I just explained, will be included with
10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICKIt's troublesome for all of us when we have to ask you questions and, require you to withdraw and resubmit your deviation for one reason or another. Well, this document is designed to help prevent that so we can all have a nicer day!10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICK2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. All Members:
- When you upload your art to dA, select the proper category. ex. When a member submits a drawing to our Digital Art folder, but we see that it's in dA's Traditional Art category, we will ALWAYS question that.
2. Digital and Traditional Artists:
- List the media/tools/programs and reference image links you used to create your art in your description. This is a practice of Pros, and it helps us to ascertain that your art is submitted to the proper folder.
- If your art is a photograph, and you did any editing besides tweaking, or BW/Sepia conversion then we will probably consider it a photo-manipulation. This includes selective de-coloration. Submit it to our Digital Art folder.

Project Educate: 4 tips for great product photos!In a world where many products are easily accessible on the internet - yes, even those - we've nearly fallen victim to the images that are slightly better than the rest, that entice us in, that persuade us to buy, bid, eat, cook and whatever else. (You've seen my Nom Nom articles right?) So it's not unusual that an eye-catching image can make all the difference when it comes to selling your products, or your photography - or both.Project Educate: 4 tips for great product photos!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Strong, Clear photographs will not only help you stand out on a web-page, but also will help you get your blog out there, or get your deviantART profile a bit more notice. Having a good working environment is often better than having that top notch expensive camera. So don't worry too much about your equipment. Get to know your angles, backdrops, props and lighting and the rest should hopefully fall into place.
Editing is really easy and good

Tears are not simple.
Their emotions and expressions complicate life. And sometimes we want to cry, but can’t.
You may worry that if you start crying you may not stop. You may fear that your ability to fade into your problems and raise again with a few scars may not work.
You could even get rid of the feelings, and the pain, that arise when you enter into the maze of sadness. All those worries are reasonable and proof of how grown up you are.
Don't hold your tears back because they will be like flooding waters building pressure against the dam wall, like putting too much makeup because you can't hide your sadness anymore, like not believing that the sun also shines for you... That creates other problems... worse problems.
There is no reason to keep repressing those sentiments, because you have to see this important truth: we are human... we are meant to feel.

break routineRoutine has become too comfortable for comfort.break routine2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My feet wear the same tracks into the dirt,
kicking up the same dust every day
but the worst part is that the dust cloud blinds me to other, newer paths.
The most appealing option is to run
c'est l'option la plus dangereuse,
but that's its allure.
My whole being screams for something different,
something borderline uncomfortable,
like the feeling of too much space I get from places with no trees,
but I limit myself.
My brain won't stretch to envelop the possibilities
that float just out of its reach
like it used to.
I'd like to blame it on public school, and I somewhat can, I think-
but in the end, I have control over what I do with my brain
and I didn't stretch it.
I am a brain neglecter,
a fear collector,
a cage erector
who locks herself in
then complains about her captivity.
I used to think I was special,
that right now didn't matter,

I don't know why I tell you this, it's not like you care.
I would've been a legend if it wasn't for the time,
Age of heroes has come and gone, all I can do now is rhyme.
I would've made something of myself, if I'd had the motivation,
But now, I just lie in wait, awaiting even more degradation.
I could've been someone, or something, I know I could,
But right now, it's all talk, all "Could, should, would."
Then there's that "if" or that "but" getting in the way,
I could've been a masterpiece, but here I am, rotting away.
No one even gives me a second glance,
I'm not a famous one like Rembrandt's.
I could've been a masterpiece if it wasn't for the tear,
If only the people looking after me had taken more care,
I could've been perfect, and remembered forever,
But now I am just a portrait, of the Forgotten Reaper.

The boy, he sits, on his bed alone
A heavy burdened tear drips from his eye,
It streaks down his face, sealing his lips,
The only question he wants to ask is, Why?
Countless bruises cover his tattered, torn skin,
But the worst of them all are the bruises within,
Bludgeoned inside, He holds himself tight,
Because he knows that no one else will, tonight,
And alone he remains, questioning his existence,
Silence he sustains, the path of least resistance,
He tears at his scabs, digging for the truth,
Searching for answers in his diminishing youth,
His shell is broken, beaten, discarded,
His mind creates comfort, inside now guarded,
He picks himself up, and stands on his own,
Oblivious to conversion, no longer alone,
His wounds heal with time, focused is his mind,
Settled, resolved, his confidence redesigned,
He walks to the door, extinguishing fear,
Entering only to escape, the answers, now clear.

Missing Pieces.I am a missing piece. Something that someone needs.Missing Pieces.2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
But at the same time, I feel so incomplete.
I’ve wandered way too far, wondered for far too long
Am I a missing piece? Or a piece that won’t belong?
Is it possible I’m damaged and not missing at all?
That I’m just as dysfunctional as everybody else?
Pretending to be perfect never softened a single fall.
But neither did admitting that you’re broken and flawed.
A broken missing piece. Is that all I’m meant to be?
There is no master plan that includes the likes of me.
Being all alone, it’s a hurt that will not cease.
A hundred thousand years from now
I’ll still be

and you...In yourself,
Perfect...I never knew such a thing...
And there you was, staring right at me.
Your eyes always told me what you couldn't say,
That you were mine and wished you could stay,
Your lips taught me everything,
But how to live without you.
And every night I dream of you,
You approach me and say what you couldn't,
Your lips touch mine,
Making me yours.
And I wake up, dressed In darkness,
Think of you dressed in yourself,
A beauty so true,
Not one has compared to you.
Every night I dream of you,
I tell you what I couldn't,
I adore you,I want you to stay,
To be able to hold you and take you away.
And I wake up, dressed In darkness,
Think of you dressed In yourself,
A beauty so true,
Not one has compared to you.
And every night I dream of you,
Wake up In depression from the lack of you,
And wonder If I had said,what I never said,
That I wanted you too.
And maybe If I had said...what I never said...
Would there be beauty In my arms when I wa
