I watched her die
For two years
Knowing -- knowing
That it was cancer
I was told
Two years ago
She has watched me
Grow and learn
Happy to see me
A smile on her face
We tried surgery
Finally in the end
We tried no more
And let her die
In my arms.
She has been my companion
For 12 years
Just been there
She was my loving dog, who cared for me.

A Poem of PoetryPoetry is like a drawingA Poem of Poetry2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A drawing made of words
A drawing not to be shown
But to be heard
Poetry is like the wind
For it can be soft and warm
And come in a graceful form
Or it can be swift and cold
Emanating fear and nothing bold
Words are meant
To be shared unbent
Not twisted full of lies
And should be without
Any sorrow or sighs
Poetry is beautiful
It's a song without instruments
Poetry is wonderful
A colourful collage of imagination
Poems are lovely
A poem is a story
And if you have never heard one
I shall feel very sorry

I love how DA supplies a free online portfolio with many great features and people get angry and throw a fit over not having a little symbol next to their name.
Giving people who support their site a little bit of recognition isn't terribly unreasonable either. Why are people so angry :iconcryforeverplz: The star is like a little 'thankyou'.

RoutineEndless pursuits we chase 'til we tire,Routine2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
grasping at dreams before we expire
to justify our daily existence.
Frantically searching for solutions
believing in these grand delusions
as a shortcut to happiness.
Becoming less like poets, more like the poem
rhyme and rhythm is all we show them,
not knowing how it all ends.
Days go by, displaying a content exterior,
beneath the surface we live feeling inferior
suffering through life's insincerity.
So our weekends call for dark celebration
we numb the pain through heavy inebriation
sober in time for the daily grind.
Routine, the number one killer
a life wasted doesn't get any realer.

Angel and Demon WingsThey're not that far apartAngel and Demon Wings3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Two emotions deemed opposite
While reason counters either
Drive comes from the same feather
Forever bound by yin and yang
Everlasting dark and light
Invisible threads bond love and hate
Both in one nest of straw and hay
The incapacity to feel one's touch
A chance of evil slipping away
Two knees beneath a pool of tears
Four walls enclosing an echo of laughs
Distance goes to endless measure
Inscribed in footprints of lonely wander
Hands blindly grasp the yearn to feel
Pitiful attempts in shortened reach
Ears deafen upon a terror's scream
A form bathes limp on crimson rose
Replacing a smile across the grimace
Of a destroyed, ruptured soul
Written from Beneath the Parisian LightsDear Jack,Written from Beneath the Parisian Lights3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's half past seven
And beneath the
Paris lights I have fallen
In love with a boy
Whose eyes are blue
And lips are red.
Do not fret, my dear,
For I am in good hands-
Hands warmer, softer,
More alive than yours
Ever were. And I-
I am certain that he
Will ask me to dinner
And will lead me to
A café on the Seine,
Where we will exchange
Kisses more intimate,
Than ours ever were.
Jack, unlike you,
With him I will live
While you stay in
Raising your daughters
With the woman who
Stole your heart away,
From right under my nose.
Farewell, my love, and
I wish you a happy mediocre
Life with that pleasant
Mediocre family of yours,
Resembling the one you would never
Let us have, and the one
I wouldn't want anyway.
With all sincerity, my dear,
Your first true love,
Does an Artist Have to Play the Popularity Game?You, as an artist, might think that exposure follows artistic success. But now I believe that artistic success follow exposure. Here is a short story illustrating this fickle process:Does an Artist Have to Play the Popularity Game?2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Daviantart Michael creates art that borders on genius. After a while Michael comes down from his artistic "in the zone" mania (he loves the feeling, feels like he's high) and collapses asleep onto a pink sofa. Next morning (if ten o'clock is morning) he sips espresso and checks his inbox: 2, maybe 3 favs.
The caffeine hits Michael's bloodstream just as the disappointing realization sags over his head like a storm cloud. Why don't they see what I did here! Can't they see how this is really something?
Michael thinks about this the whole day. Then he realizes that success precedes exposure so he adds over 9000 groups to all his submissions and now receives a continuous flush of favs and comments as reliable as OLD FAITHFUL GEYSER, YELLOWSTONE PARK 82190, WY.

Empathy.You said it was one of those nightsEmpathy.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when the laboured breathing of the slumbering world plagued the earth with lethargy,
and the liveliest of people would crawl into their beds,
seeking solace in the dreams that release them from reality's hold.
As they sank into the deepest of subconscious visionaries, you sighed
and opened the blinds.
I never knew what on earth you meant.
Surely someone waited for you in the warm folds of a comforter,
struggling to hold onto consciousness,
so that you could join them and fall asleep in their company?
As I cocked my head to one side in confusion, you sighed
and turned away in sorrow.
Glancing at his sleeping form beside me,
my sleepless eyes strayed to the arm loosely holding me to him,
and I knew that at some point in history,
another had lain in my place.
As his heartbeat lulled me into submission, I sighed
and closed my eyes.
You said it was one of those nights
that you'd been caught dead center in the eye of your own storm,

Point out my old clothes
Telling me I am always being evil and negative
You are good at many things
And for an example, to keep track of your clothes
And my appointments
You are great at a lot
You can trash me
Lie to my face
Take my freedom
Without even being able to see it with your own eyes
You can so much
You are for an example emotionally blind
Never use the word sorry
Never had the need to
There is nothing to apoligize for
I on the other hand
Is not credible enough
But you are perfect
How can I live up to it?
How can I get to live in a plastic bubble?
How can I stamp on the feelings of others?
How do I shut down all my emotions forever?
You are perfect
And I am the devil herself

I see your face
In the colorless dullness
Of the stark white night
I can see the shadowed contours
Of your beautiful face
The dark pool of mud
That fills the center
Of your perfect eyes
Your softly tinted lips
That smile back at me
I was colorblind
But you pulled me out of the end
And back to the beginning
Where you held me close
And told me not to be
Afraid of the world
You took my face in your hands
And told me I was everything
You could've asked for
The world is colorless
An empty palette of people
But when I saw you
You wonderful mess of color
I had to ask myself
If this was real
Or if this was really
The ecstasy my heart was waiting for
I am ready
Ready to hold your hand in mine
Ready for the world to see us
I am ready
To come out of the shadows
To show the world the true colors
Of a love frowned upon.
The FerrymanI am but a candlelightThe Ferryman8 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Glistening in a lake of ink
A tiny burning lost desire
A memory of laugh and drink
I am but a children’s laugh
Lost upon the wind so quick
When night does fall and light must part
Like a lonely flame in savage wind
I am but a declaration
Of a love long lost to time
I am but the ferryman
For whom you save your final dime
I am but a bottled dream
Fleeting and fragile like life itself
Open up, release your breath
Enter a dream far worse than death
You may stand tall before the end
In candlelight, staying the hand
Of ferryman and night and god
Though the tides of time you may sway not.
