These are widgets on your profile that you can put anything you want in. When you click on [Edit Page] you can choose the "Custom" option. If you have general widgets like "ID", "Fave Deviation", "Journal" etc. they do limit where you can put custom boxes, so I just got rid of them all and use primarily Custom widgets for my profile OvO)/
1. Custom background picture!!!
This is where you get to show off your personality a bit- it can be really fun trying out different background colours and pictures. There are many cute ones available on deviantArt, just search "custom box background" and you'll find them. I prefer to use more specific ones though- so you can also use photos and drawings and stuff (mine is
Living With A GhostI hear you knock about the walls,Living With A Ghost3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Traverse each and every one of the halls ...
And yet I never catch the slightest glimpse of you.
It is a shame that I never do.
An indistinct notion hanging about the air,
You cast melancholy gloom, and the despair
Never leaves me, even when you do.
Please, next time ... take it with you.

Who I am.
What I am like.
She took the clay in her hands
She took the paintbrush
And guided my colors across
A little piece of her
In every piece of me.
And everything in between.
Pride Month: What is Gender?I'm gonna talk about some LGBTQA+ stuff because it's Pride Month and this stuff is important to me! Today's topic is gender, but I'll probably do one about sexuality later.Pride Month: What is Gender?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start, I just want to say that I’m basically writing this as a way to a) Spread Awareness of Pride Month, b) Get people to think about what it means to be a queer person in this time and most importantly c) OFFER SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT!
As an important note- this journal is pretty much about information and support, not debating. I’m not doing “SJW” stuff and I’d appreciate if you didn’t post negative/inflammatory things here. Thanks!
▪Well, first off- what is LGBTQA+?
This acronym has changed a little over the years, but my research tells me (and please correct me if I am wrong or outdated!) that the letters stand f
Dear the girls who...This is to the girls who believe they're not pretty enough for someone.Dear the girls who...3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Who wake up early to get ready.
Who put on a smile.
Who try everyday, when they don't need to.
Who starve themselves, because they think they're not skinny.
Who cut to not feel alive but to remind themselves they are.
Who are shy and find it hard to trust.
Who will never believe that someone loves them.
Please remember that.
You don't need to try.
Everyone is beautiful.
As long as you're happy.
That's all that matters.
DoomedWe don’t understand what it means to live,Doomed3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
We must pay the price because we breathe.
Everyone knows what pain is,
Everyone knows what is sorrow,
They can await us even tomorrow,
But no one cares for tears,
Our hearts were carved from stones,
From metal were forged our bones,
We do not know the misery of our friends,
We throw them away and their life ends.
There is no happiness for you and me,
To dissolve in to dust is our destiny!
We have no aims anymore,
To the future we shot the door!
Everything that seemed bright,
Has turned in to darkness,
With no hope of light!
Past victories lost their meanings forever,
It will never be the same, 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.
Shot of the NightOh the love that was thereShot of the Night2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In that liquor fed mood
Your breath splashing
And the umpteenth shot on that chick by Main Street
Oh the passion that was never there
With two different sweats
Rubbing against one another
And other fumes followed
Making hate out to be affection
Here comes another day
Expected to arrive
the mighty fine well clanks down empty.
And there's nothing to say
Past murmurs and whispers,
But thanks babe for the booze.

Puts them on
And sees the world
For what it truly is
And it is all too much
He can't take
Their rules, their ways
He would rather just see the world
Through his own blinded eyes
So he takes the glasses off
Not wanting to see
He takes the glasses off

You Are Worth ItYou are worth it.You Are Worth It3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Worth every drop
Of blood, sweat,
And tears I shed.
Every reason you give
To try to convince me
That you're not worth it
Is only what you see.
If only you could see
What I saw in you.
If only you knew
What's truly inside you.
You're not pretty?
No, you're beautiful.
You're not smart?
No, you're a genious.
You're too thin, too thick?
No, you're just right.
You're not fun enough?
I'm suprised I can keep up.
You're not talented?
Then why are you so awesome?
You're not worth it?
Please, stand corrected now.
So you see...
You are worth it.
You're worth every drop.
And that's why I love you.

I have no pride
Why didn't you just take me life
You left me with my mind
Nothing but that horrid morning to find
I told you no
I asked you to stop
You kept on pushing
To get on top
Over powering me
Saying you'll like it,you'll see
It wasnt rape
You didnt make it to that
I wait for the day that you get smacked
Smacked with the charges that I pressed
You've changed my life and what I think
My trust in others has gone down the sink
I dream of you hurting me still
I can only hope you never will
Mentally rape me and leave my abused
Left me on the ground and leave me used
You think you got away with it
Just you wait and see
Now you will learn why
You should never have messed with me!

she seeks the name of his first love
this man was nice and tender
he was aware of her past
he had never judged her crimes
kneeling before his grave, her hands immersed in this cursed land
she cries her sadness and her distress
I loved you, my angel
excuses me, I had not the choice
the abandonment was the only solution

Old days gone and nearly forgotten
Little ones grown their tales told
In this room in this hour misbegotten
There is a life that shines very dimly
Under the clutter and the veiled umbrage
Death awaits and beckons the soul though grimly
Exarchs of pain exquisite this is his gilded birdcage

I want to jump and close my eyes
But I'm chained by my obsession
I know without it I could fly
If this is how it feels to be afraid
If this is what I'm meant to be
Letting all time slip away
While trying to be what I should be
I won't become the pure perfection
I'm getting caught out in the rain
Only worsened by reflections
Of a lost life and its remains

Followed by any more
She can’t stop crying
She is at the end of her road
Everyone she has loved
Has left her all alone
She has no one to cry too
No one to comfort her
She is now living in a world of doom
As she lies on the cold wet floor
She clutches the knife even tighter
She knows what she has to do to make the pain go away
And now she is ready to take her own life
She lifts the knife to get ready to end it

Devil's DomainThe ground is warmDevil's Domain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With the fires of evil's belonging.
For us to be in such a place,
Horror reaches us with burning displacement.
To die is a fear,
the beyond is an adventure
For those who shy
Those fires do sear.
But what if it doesn't exist?
What if death is just life?
For hope to be gone, just like that...
Gone in the air like the summer's mist.
So do understand,
that this evil we see
is but an illusion
The devil's heart is a beautiful land.
Their StoriesI've read so many stories,Their Stories3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
yet none appeal to me
I want the weak minded thought's,
I want to know their dreams
I'm sick of strong male characters,
and feisty female minds
I want someone who can't take it,
someone who's lost the fight
I want the truth behind the lies
Not the mask that hides the shy
I want their inner feelings,their core
I want to know their hearts, do they feel remorse?
I want to know their fears, their worries
I need to know who they are, their stories

Jealousy can be misery when it takes control of you. You see something you like, you just might fight, to get it for yourself. So many things, to be jealous of. It could be love, or a new white glove. Jealousy is around you, jealousy is inside you. Take control of your jealousy, so it won't become misery.
