Deep in the stillness,
I wander but a ghost thru mists of shadow & sanguine ..
And the trees bathe in the mystique of Night’s serenade
Covet thee my love immortal,
for we are hunters of a dream untamed;
poetry bleeding into the abyss ...
Candle whispers drink a sky of wine, unto where I sojourn —
in the caress of your lips, and ache of darkest Moon

millions of people in the world with
broken hearts, and they survive
well what about the ones that don't?
what about the ones that crack right through
& end up holding onto themselves by the skin
of their pearly whites?
(and are you happy now? do you have a girl? have a kid? do you sleep at night? i've said sorry a thousand times, but i guess it doesn't count when it's in my head)
RIP Robin WilliamsThis is very sad news, but Robin Williams has passed on. Truly he will be missed, especially to all of us '90s kids who enjoyed movies like Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Hook, etc. What a wonderful, funny man.RIP Robin Williams7 months ago in Personal More Like This
In light of this sad event, we shall celebrate Robin Williams' life by changing our weekend livestream movie to Aladdin. ^.^

Devious Journal EntryHello hello. Its me again. This is not my 'normal' intro and for those who scene my previous journal updates, you all know what that means. Now I promise that I won't be leaving again, but something came up and now I am leaving 'PERMANENTLY'. Lets just say that I learned some 'things' over the weekend and now I am at the bottom. And it has something to do with MLP:FIM.Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Look, I know that I support the brony community and what not, but I'm changing now. I will support the bronies in anyway I can, just not that much anymore. Its not you, its me; I have been acting up lately and I need to go away for a while, like a vacation. A VERY LONG VACATION.
I won't be on DA not much anymore and my last story I will be reading is 'Chaotic Order' and thats it. So I don't want anything to do with ponies or bronies, or anything related to MLP:FIM anymore :iconpinkiepiesadplz:

Introducing the New NavigationIntroducing the New Navigation5 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
We received a lot of feedback that deviants preferred to use #1, #2, etc. to form lists, and that the automatic conversion to tags was distracting. In response to this feedback, we've updated the system so that using # before a number will no longer create a link to a tag page. Changed by kemayo
Double-clicking the "Post Status" button when creating a Status Update would cause the update to be posted twice. Fixed by inazar
If a deviant posted one Status Update and then returned to the box to post a second Status Update without reloading
Poetry: Too Damn LazyThis poem and others may be found at the following link:Poetry: Too Damn Lazy1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Warning: Fuck it
So damn lazy I shouldn't be a poet
Over here like damn I know it
Writing this just to write
Teach me I only write well at night
It's the fucking AM
I can barely even begin
Pray to the Lord Amen
Scratch that let's start over again
Monday isn't fun
One day I might be done
Sit back and watch Doctor Who
Just like the Doctor I know what to do
I feel so lazy
And I feel hazy
And I feel crazy
Scratch my ass like a Pokemon
My friend reading like "It's Tolkien Mahn"
Lord of the Rings is my jam
Treants tearing down that dam
I'm a pretty big fan
I watched the movie
Like The Mystery van
Scooby and the gang got me feeling groovy
Groovy Dubie snacks
Chilling and feeling lax
Scruffy's spraying the axe
Watching Mad Max
Mad cause it's filled with talentless hacks

Rant: Rape CultureThe opinions in this rant are my own. You don't have to agree. If you don't, fine. If you do, thanks.Rant: Rape Culture3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Have you ever noticed how some people seem to disregard rape in today's world? As if it's something unimportant or something that's not worth really caring about. Yeah, there are many people who support rape victims, me included, but there are some who just...act like it's not a big deal. They just blow rape victims off or else blame them for the terrible thing that happened to them.
"You weren't really raped! You're just trying to ruin their lives by lying!"
"You didn't fight them off. You must have wanted it."
"Well, you only got raped because you dressed like a whore/were drunk/asked for it/seduced them/what-the-hell-ever."
"There's no way you were raped. You're a male."
Why? Why all the shitty excuses and remarks? Yes, I'm sure there are some who lie about being raped because they want attention or to spite whoever they claim t

Introducing the Watch Feed and Status UpdatesIntroducing the Watch Feed and Status Updates 5 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Connecting you with your watchers.
The Watch Feed creates a sequential stream of activity from your watchlist, including deviations, Journals, Collections, Status Updates, Polls, Forum threads and Critiques. Status Updates let people share quick updates about what they’re working on or what inspires them. Find an awesome deviation? Share it in your Status Update.
As we designed our upcoming Mobile app, we understood the need to build something streamlined and direct to deliver what you want to watch. The Watch Feed was built for smartphones and tablets. While we love the robust tools available in the Message Center — and they’re not going away — the Message Center is not an environment that works well on mobile.

Answer to Tom Riddle and win pointsI'm so happy that you,guys,put some super cool and interesting question to Tom Riddle!Answer to Tom Riddle and win points3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Your question are so interesting (and so difficult to chose),so I decided to give some more points.
Now,all you have to make is to answer to the question/s you chose from the list.
All you have to do before,is to write the number of the question that you reply.
Next week,I'll chose the most interesting 3 question(as I said in my last journal) and 150 points (100,50,50) for the best answers.
I'll answer,too,to all the questions,next week.
And...one moire think :if the winners (1st,2nd or 3rd place) are the same question+ answer,the owners will receive each 50 extra points.
I'm very curious to read your answers!
Good luck everybody!:iconbackhug:
Oh,and...thanks to all of you who featured my last journal and plz,feature this one,too!

Rant: Self-Harm Selfies?The opinions in this (short) rant are my own and you don't have to agree. If you do, thanks!Rant: Self-Harm Selfies?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
You know how some people tend to post pics of self-harm over the internet, like here on dA? I don't mean drawings of that type of thing; drawings don't physically hurt people and if you don't draw it and go 'lol look, cutting', you're good. I mean actual photos of their cuts or burn marks. Selfies where you're holding up your bloody arm, or photos where you say 'look what I did last night' in the description. What is that really proving? Most of the people I know who have a serious issue with self-harm are ashamed of it, and even if they can stand to talk about it, they don't want their suffering displayed all over the internet in cell phone pictures. It's not helping you get better, and it's not helping others who go through the same thing you do.
It kinda makes you look like you're proud of what you're doing to yourself, when most would like nothing more than to have their problem and

Community Update: Activity WidgetIn response to community feedback, we've made refinements to some of our recently launched features.Community Update: Activity Widget4 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
To start, we've updated the Activity widget displayed on Profile Pages. Many deviants mentioned that the widget takes up a lot of space, and some also mentioned that they would like to use this space to solely feature their Status Updates, which otherwise can only be found on the Watch Feed.
The Activity widget is now editable, with two actionable changes for deviants to customize, giving you more control over what displays on your Profile Page:
Display all items, or just Status Updates.Display 5, 10, or 20 items.
This is the initial update of several improvements to come, and we're continuing to monitor performance and community feedback to better the DeviantArt experience. We look forward to reading and thank you for your continued feedback!
A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.A Guide to Effective Tagging5 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t

I wanna encourage everyone to repost this in their journals.Everyone needs to see this. Pet CPR.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Pet CPR is not nearly as common knowledge as it should be. You may think you'll never actually need to know how to do this. But I can tell you; it happens. Cause it happened to me.
This is a picture of my late dog, a great dane named Tiger. (cropped out my mom who's in the picture.) Tiger died at the age of only 2, of a heart attack (heart flaw), on my living room floor one day when I was alone home 3 years ago.
My mother, who is a nurse assistant had literally left the house only 10 minutes previously to go shopping. One minute, my happy boy was his fine, happy, laid back self. The next thing I know, he's laying unresponsive on the floor. And I panic.
I called my mom who instructed me on how to do CPR over the phone while she was hurrying home. But I was too
