Delicate white candy floss clouds,
Crisp green forests no-one's ever seen,
A blazing sun rising over a frostbitten world.
Wishing for things you know you'll never have,
Seeing things that will never exist,
Feeling things that no-one else will ever feel.
Twisted black hands wrapping around your neck,
Skeletons stalking you through a misty forest,
Ghouls ripping out your soul by twilight.
People long gone still lingering in your dreams,
Photographed memories coming to life
An old teddy bear that sings you to sleep.
But above all,
The essence of my very soul.

Guys I KNOW I am not the only one who HATES the new upload page on Deviantart and no matter how much I complain THEY WON'T CHANGE IT BACK!
SO guys here is the plan we won't buy any Premium member ships, or stuff from D.A. until the return back to the old upload page!
Make a journal entry like this telling everyone to do the same!
Also send letters to D.A. telling them to bring back the OLD upload page...
Why I hate the New upload page:
When I upload something BUT I want to reupload it, it freezes...

Adorn the frigid pathway
Grace the frostbitten door
Flutter in the frozen air
Like pristine butterflies
So flawless, so cold.
Frost the chilled windows
Caress the freezing trees
Lace the artic breezes
Like fine ribbons of ice
So exquisite, so cold.
Is draped in subzero chains
Wrapped in numbing tendrils
Encased in a frosty cage
Like an alien, locked in a foreign world.
And so, so cold.

Blue-white, blue-white, blue-white
Tumbling down my rabbit-hole esophagus into the flooded warren
Where swims the swiftly dissolving key to my stable growth.
Wonderland I am swallowing,
But this will never do.
The words come when I call them, tumbling &
Stumbling over one another to be first
During the appointment, having meant what I meant, or not, as I pleased,
And all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't
Knit my meanings together again
Oh, Wonderland, Wonderland, Wonderland.
Here I come. Again. How dull.

Freedom of a BirdThe golden sand upon the shore,Freedom of a Bird2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The salty smell of sea.
The water lapping at our feet,
The sea spray in the gusts of wind.
The crashing of the water,
Beating on the rugged rocks.
All this I can know of,
Standing by the mesmerizing sea.
The trailing lengths of slender rope,
The smoothness of the fabric,
The utmost joy that lifts my heart,
As I watch the brightly coloured kite
Flit across the crests of waves,
In that turquoise ocean.
All this I can feel,
Standing by the midnight blue sea.
I watch the little kite
Skim across the sky,
Ride along the currents,
Dance among the soft white clouds
And waltz partnered with the breeze.
All this we can witness,
Standing by the deep blue sea.
Then suddenly the rope snaps;
The kite becomes a bird
And gets carried
Away with the gentle wind.
Oh, how I long for freedom,
The freedom of a bird.
All this we can yearn for,
Standing by the sparkling sapphire sea.
Oh how I wish I had some wings
So I could flit among the cotton clouds
With my little bird.
How to not get 'trolled'This is basically what passed through my mind when I saw a journal about the same subject in the journal portal lately. I thought it was a joke but sadly not.

This is based on my *insert how many years the internet has been around for* years experience in different online communities.
Doing nothing 'bad' won't change anything
You will avoid making forum threads when you're new?
You will avoid starting arguments?
You will keep your political agenda and religion to yourself?

As I would say, it's a well-deserved break from all the travelling and fighting.
Letting out a sigh, I slumped back resting my head on the small rocks surrounding the hot water in a big perfect circle.
My ears twitched lightly at the sound of footsteps making their way over to (indirectly?) me. .me and my sensitive ears.
Holding back an annoyed growl, I straightened my position again. Couldn't I have some time for myself?
The newcomer raised his voice before any of us could see the other.

Of course he was grinning. I knew. How? .Intuition.

Ignoring my plead he just approached further, letting his iron boots echo through the place. Finally he also let himself be shown.

Even the moon
Stares down at me
I can feel ice
Strangling my bones,
Even the core.
The dirty whiteness;
I can feel it,
Bleached, slimy and foul
As it runs
Down my cold face
Slithering to my blue toes.
And I know
That the very moon
I feel so extremely alone.
I feel so alone.
In a bustling mall
Where people jostle me,
Mutter at me
To quicken my pace.
But when people

I'm not worth a glance.
Like I am nothing.

And I feel very much alone.
I feel so alone.
Why do I bother
To keep up this mask?

Bouncy and cheerful

Who sits in the corner.
The one that no one ever
Bothers to get to know.
And I feel so terribly alone.
I feel so alone.

With a poison dart?
Perhaps you'll enjoy it
On a silver platter
Eat it bit by bit.
Delicious? Don't flatter.

Grilled or roasted,
Fit to eat?
Go ahead, just ask, be bold...
But if you ask me,

I hear the raindrops tap the street
Forgetting all I've fallen for, I can't go on
I can't be more
Hidden behind tapestries
Adorned with painful memories
Slowly realize what you've done, I've lost it all
I've come undone
A fallen angel at your feet
A broken mess at your mercy
Heartless in my time of need, you walked away
You watched me bleed
Holding out for fate unknown
A missing piece, an empty home
Living life with no one there, I know I'm lost
But I don't care
Within the boundaries of myself
Crying out for someone's help
Wishing for, with all my heart
They'll stop the pain and light the dark
A fallen angel at my feet
Broken, shattered just like me
I take her hand and grip it tight
We'll last forever in the light

Evil, is knowing better
But purposely doing worse.
Toying with love by the tether
And laughing when it hurts.
Prevailing by any measure
With no intention to reimburse.
Flaunting stolen fabricated treasures
Gaining what you never truly deserved.
To live a life of complete leisure
And never keeping to your words.
Manipulating and applying pressure
Because the rich and poor can never be merged.
The idea of a just world is just a rehearsed lecture.
Those who seek to create this will be publically purged.
We all fall victim to man kind's thin, green texture.

Every scar that marks your flesh
Looking over the stretch marks you just can't lose
A mismatched freckle here and pimple there
Color drained features and wish-wash face
Unsightly birth mark or that rough patch of skin
Too fat; too skinny
Too bald; too hairy
Too tall; too short
Too pale; too dark
Too bold; too chunky
Every flaw that marries your skin is a piece of art
Unique; individual; it tells a tale of who you are inside
Denounce the devoid within
Accept the beauty you dare to hide
Perfection is impossible.
You are beautiful.
Every breath that you take and word you speak
Fill it with originality; with creativity;
Fill it with you
No one can be as you are;
And you should try not to be anyone else
Those imperfect specks here and there
Do not define you as anything less
Than being gorgeous
Understand when I look at you,
I only see you
For who you are

She visited me in my dreams,
She stroked my face, smiled a tender smile,
And gazed into my heart with her eyes,
I cannot recall her name,
Because she never told it to me,
She just made me feel happy,
And that seemed enough for her.
I would often wake, with the warmth of her touch
still fresh upon my face,
The memory of her beautiful eyes
still makes my heart skip,
And beat to a rhythm I had not felt in so many years,
I would look forward to sleeping
and to be able to feel her touch again.
The dream was always the same,
I would enter a room, of such
opulent furnishing and beautiful decor,
I was always amazed;
The sun would be shining through,
Casting golden rays of hope upon her,
A woman of such beauty that only dreams are made of,
She would always look up and smile at me,
A happy smile,
A loving smile,
She would stand from her seat,
And in a second, be at my side,
Holding my hand, stroking my face,
She would say such wonderful things to me,
