MonstersWhite turns to pink,Monsters1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Pink flows to red,
White peeks from underneath
Buried in the white
Is a river of purple
At a glance the line
Looks like a bruise
Under my flesh
But I know what it is
A pathway, living under my skin
Feeding oxygen to my fingertips
Breathe in, breathe out
I close my eyes
Imagine life different
See a smiling face
Dancing in rays of sun
A smile forms on my lips
It lingers for a moment
But it is a lie
So I give it up
Here alone, on my own,
No prying eyes,
I don't have to fake it.
Letting the red flow
It drips of my fingertips
They're getting less oxygen now.
I walk to the mirror
Looking in my eyes
I see the truth
I don't know what's in there.

Like silver mercury
Lies are easily swallowed
Now that I can stomach them
But they won't be inside for long
In a few minutes, they'll be flushed away
Comes up almost as easy as it slides down
I'll swallow the lies
But they won't eat me alive anymore

You'd think twiceYou'd think twice,You'd think twice1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I know you would.
If you knew the truth
of what I've done.
I've hurt myself,
and I can't promise
I won't do it again.
I'm broken down,
and not very pretty
in the first place
so if you knew everything else
you would think twice
I know almost certainly.
For why have someone that is
broken and insecure
when you can have
someone with less problems?
why go after me,
when there's someone better?
who has no scars,
who has not hurt their family.
someone that is not damaged.
yes I'm pretty sure
you would think twice
about liking me
if you knew the whole truth.
because why have me
when there's someone
that isn't broken

I know you feel helpless, child
Just as you should
Death is coming for you, child
As we always knew it would
Your fate has been sealed, child
And there's nothing to be done
Just lay back and accept it, child
Don't you try to run
So save your remaining strength, child
And drift off to sleep
I would just hate it, child
If you were to see me weep
We've gathered 'round your bed, child
We've hopelessly cuddled and kissed
And when you pass away, child
Know that you will be missed

Nations of WarEveryday is a constant warNations of War1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
for this world so bound in tears.
Nothing but the thin, dying air
consumes our hearts for years.
Have we really come this far
in our fight to quarrel some more
or is there something deep inside
that we're still waiting for?
Our desires turn to dust
when we behold this land of hate.
Nations continue to lust
after thoughts that discriminate.
People of diverging cultures
slash at each others' throats,
diminishing all the beauty
that this earth could need the most.
Potential friendships are lost
to a cold burgundy sea.
Love is easily dismissed
due to selfish families.
Tradition is no longer honored
in the true and just manner.
Careless souls don't hesitate
to set fire to waving banners.
Surely o'er the glowing heavens
God weeps for our disarray,
as this heart-wrenching affliction
repeats itself day by day.
Until mankind stops bleeding
from the pain that we create,
our burdens will be proceeding
and our pride will seal our fate.
List of Random Magical SpellsList of Random Magical Spells3 years ago in Settings More Like This
REMEMBER: A "Good" author, or even a "Great" one, does their best to be unique with their ideas for a magical universe, and avoids God-moding (aka, where a character is impossible to defeat, despite little training, etc etc.) A "Wise" author ALSO remembers, that every spell can be counter-attacked, or canceled all together, with another one. Spells are an endless cycle of attack and counter-attack, start and cancel, and many can, like medicine, have a greater, or worse, effect, if combined.
Now then, this list contains spells that I myself came up with. They are not Harry Potter spells, so please look elsewhere for those. If you have a unique spell that you are fine with others using for any reason, without credit to you, feel free to leave it in the comments section!
Likewise, these spells are for use of ANYone, with NO credit needed, to be used in ANY means they desire; books, comics, fanfics, etc etc. However, I would still recommend coming up with a uniq

You sit down, and you think – but nothing comes out of that pen. No, the pen has ink, but you're brain-dead. It's a problem that we'll all feel as writers, whether it be temporarily, or when we are in a "dry spell" phase, in which we cannot find that source of motivation. Some call it a "muse", or someone who brings along the artistic stimulation to the mind that has helped many (as it probably did with William Shakespeare at many times in his mysterious life). Face it. Without inspiration, there is nothing. Without it, threw would be no creations… No artwork, as there would be no deviant ART without (and, this statement may be controversial at these times, so bear with me) Scott Jarkoff's brilliant original idea. Yes, ideas – inspiration's devious little creations. But where do we find this? Simple.
My source of inspiration is life. I try to maintain three blogs (or, online journals), each one serving it's own purpose and writing style. This both trains my writing skills, a

The sky is clear and white.
Blue ribbons dance in
with the coffee tin
and the whimsy walls feel flimsy.
I lean against a blackboard
and the sides cave in, oh crash
goes the falling world; follows suit
wearing golden boots.
Is this Wonderland or Neverland
or no such land at all?
Are we mapped in ink, under the kitchen sink?
Perhaps; I don't recall.
You sit on the stairs and watch the stars
They're tiny white flowers, they fall like the snow
Oh where now, oh where will we go?
I remember this place from a dream in space
Did the planets still smile like moons?
Did it light up her face,
did it topple her grace?
The daisy that grew up underneath the sea.
Will you run and hide
Will we catch and slide

and knives that slice the bread
Because, dear, that's just breakfast, you know.
And the battle will pass

If it is yet to come, the snowball of glass.

Writing Tutorial - DialogueWhile some authors may talk about how their writing is all talent and a gift from The Powers That Be, the truth is anyone can do a great deal to improve their writing. One effective way is through working on your dialogue.Writing Tutorial - Dialogue5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Fan fiction can be particularly bad about this, but God-awful dialogue can be found just about anywhere, from popular books to comics to television. Bad dialogue often happens when people lose sight of reality and get hung up in the information or message theyre trying to get their character to communicate. Good dialogue is a natural reflection of the characters and the world, is easy on the ears/eyes and moves the plot forward in one way or another.
Tips for Improving Your Dialogue:
Yep, just listen. Next time youre on a bus or waiting at a restaurant, take a moment and listen to the conversations around you. Listen to the rhythm, the accents, the grammar people use in daily life. Good dialogue sounds natural. Bad dialog do

Nothing will harm me.
