.and goddess,.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
this isn't something i can
sweat or starve out of me,
i'll have to write and it will
see i've often thought about
placing my head in the pestle
and mortar, i wonder if i could
grind out the hell inside, become
a red pulp on the worktop, and
even the oven keeps tutting at me,
it's so easy, just open the door
stick your hand in, feel his forked
tongue on your palm,
orange lover, you
and it's true
that the dead are never really
silent, they grunt and they groan
in their damp soil sheets,
toss and turn over
(fill the bath with water, and just drop me in it)

The Butterflies- A short storyThe ButterfliesThe Butterflies- A short story9 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
The young albino sighed with irritation. Her teacher thought she was lying about her report. The red butterfly told her so. Her teacher thought that she had plagiarized someone else’s work. It was too good, the teacher was thinking. It’s too emotional for someone her age to write. It angered Emily. Her story had been about her late younger sister, Lily. In a way, it had been one of Emily’s attempts to tell the world of her pain; to get the world to understand. And her teacher dared to challenge her story as plagiarized. She would show her.
“Calm down, Emily,” whispered the blue butterfly. “She doesn’t understand…how could she? She isn’t like you. No one is.” She heard the other students in her classroom whispering about her, making fun of her. They thought she was no good, a weirdo; one that knew too much. But who could
Fear of Blank Canvas.I've been painting since I was quite young.Fear of Blank Canvas.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But still, I am overwhelmed and intimidated once I am facing the vast 'whiteness' of a blank canvas.
Like Goliath to little David, the empty space challenges me and I recoil.
I think being a good painter is nothing other than to overcome this fear of blank canvas.
Just like Van Gogh said,
a good painter never fears the canvas;
The canvas fears him.

anxietyFirst of all.. I didn't expect to gain so much appreciation over this piece.anxiety2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.

PE: Watercolour and saltWatercolour and saltPE: Watercolour and salt6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Watercolour painting provides us with fantastic possibilities to create various textures. They can be achieved in many different ways with use of many different side components and equipment - in this article, I'll focus on salt textures. It usually takes time to get a handle of it - like everything else - but the outcome is definitely worth it.
Water and pigment
The three factors that determine the effects are the amount of water, amount of pigment and amount of salt, with the two first being the harder part. The more water you use, the more time it takes for the paint to dry and the more time the salt has to work - therefore the pigment will be pushed further away and you'll get bigger, paler spots between darker pigment borders. Less water will get you smaller, star-like

Drawing on the right side of the brainDrawing on the right side of the brain2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When inspiration attacks (and when it doesn't)
Everyone is probably familiar with this scenario. You're trying to draw something, but you can't find the inspiration. Or maybe you're trying to write a story, or an assignment for school, but you just can't find the right words. Or maybe you have to tackle a creative problem and you just can't figure it out.
So you rack your brain for the right ideas, but they're just not coming to you. Or maybe some of them are, but they're lousy ideas born (at least in part) from desperation. Either way, you're just not really happy with them.
That evening, when you're standing in the shower, you suddenly get a burst of inspiration. Suddenly, you know exactly what you want to write, or draw. Or maybe inspiration attacked when you were in the bathroom, or when you were jogging, or on your way to work or school. Maybe it happened when you were lying in bed, h
The Inevitable TruthSo many people dream of a "perfect" world. A world where there is no violence or pain or illness. A world where there is no fear. No heartbreak. No death. No hatred. Only happiness.The Inevitable Truth8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I used to dream of this world as well. I would go to sleep at night and dream of perfection. We all want this "perfect" world. Until, the perfection bears imperfection. For you see, it is impossible.
How can we know love and hatred is not felt first? How do we know joy if we've never felt sorrow? How do we feel safe if there is nothing to fear? Is there was no violence, how do we know peace? How can we know the joy of life without knowing the pain of death?
This is a never ending cycle. An evil that we must all bear. For you see, "perfection" is unattainable.
There is still perfection in this world. One just needs to know where to look.
