thingswhen things go bad. its not fun. you feel out in the cold. like theres no-one to help you, rather like you're falling and cannot do anything, even worse, theres no-one to help you. no rope, no net to catch you. just helpless falling. its worse though, when you can see someone else falling away, away fron you, and you cannot help them. you cant put out a net. its either not possible or you just have to leave them too it. thats the worst. i hate leaving people to fall to their death. and all you can do is watch. just watch them fall, away, away.

Be still, don't cry.
Lay with me
A little while.
Close your eyes,
Slow your breath.
Hear your heart
Inside your chest?
Your heart is strong,
It guides you well.
Be sure to listen
To what it tells.
I hear him now,
Outside the room.
It won't be long,
He'll find us soon.
Now close your eyes,
Slow your breath,
And rest your head
Upon my chest.

one that fastens and locks. Threw it in the fire, watched it sizzle
and burn. Started to take my value, burned it taking turns.
He trapped me in leather, smothered me till I died. Threw my body
in the trash, never even cried. Left me there to rot, left me
for the rats. Skin pallid, limbs limp, eyes as black as bats.
He left then, and somehow I returned. Crawled through the wreckage,
void of all concern. Eyes were black and lips were cracked. I
wandered like a lifeless doll, feeling I'd been smacked.
He never returned, never said sorry. Left me in the dark at the
bottom of a quarry. Now I'm walking with a limp, soundless and
mute. I hope you know it wasn't fun, it wasn't even cute.
DaddyIf I could just have one more moment to look you in the eyes again; to hold you in my arms and feel your heart beat just like it used to, just as true as the life you breathed inside of me. If you could just see me now, as an adult, and what I've accomplished so far in my life. If you could face me without holding back tears of pain or sorrow .Daddy3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
I would sob. I would cry until my eyes swell shut. Out of happiness that you returned to see your little girl grow up and graduate high school, and that your years of excruciating anguish were just a nightmare. I would be able to see you smile again smile at my accomplishments, my path, my future. I would gasp for air myself, just to tell you how much I missed everything about you... my hero.
But, fate is too cruel
You'll never be able to meet the wonderful man that my heart has bonded with. You'll never get the chance to see me take hold of any diploma You'll never walk me down the aisle; and keep me from falling down in

You don't want me here, do you?
You'd rather me be gone.
You are all I know.
You are not a person, but my world.
I've never known anything but you.
This world, you, it's new to me,
But it's all I have.
What am I to expect?
Will I one day be out of here?
Will you raise me in a world where you are there?

Art theft on Deviantart, an Experiment.After being a member of deviantart for a couple years, after browsing through it for honestly several years, I have come to a startling and terrifying realization; art theft is now higher than ever before and less is being done about it. My main fear was that in due time, deviantart will become nothing more than a fancy photobucket where you can't tell if the person who posted the piece is the one who made it, or not. It seemed every week now, a piece that was stolen makes it to the front page, giving users who simply googled the piece in a matter of a few seconds more attention than a user who spent several hours, if not days making a work of art they were proud of. Of course me and several other users reported these thefts, but it is very rare that the issue is resolved. I've reported several pieces but it has been months since a mod has sent me a message informing me that the issue was fixed and the piece was taken down, like it should have been.Art theft on Deviantart, an Experiment.3 years ago in Comedy More Like This

My name is Sarah Marcel. For the past few...well, I'm unsure of how long it's been actually. Let's just say for quite a while now, I've been living an extremely unusual life. Actually, I guess I haven't really been "living" very much of it. You see, for a great deal of my life, I've been a stone statue. I know it sounds unreal. After all, people turning to stone is the stuff of myth and movies, right? You couldn't be more wrong. I figured after all these years, someone out there should know what I've been through, and I've finally decided to put it all on paper. Now, I'm no writer by any means so don't go expecting Harry Potter or whatever you people read these days.

Okay, so writing. Something you are interested in? Well,
lets get to grips with just some of the basics of great writing. These tips
will transform your attitude from "How can I fill this page?" into "How can
I fill this page with good quality writing?"
Part One: Initial Idea
Why is it that finding an idea can be so hard?
Why does everyone else have the power to come up with amazing ideas, and what
are you left with? Nothing... Well, to you, that may be what it seems
like, but I'm sure if you dig deep enough, you don't really lack in
ideas, you just have a hard time bringing them to the surface. Here
are some ways to bring out that buried inspiration:
Base some ideas on real life events
Its probably the easiest way to write, you may have experienced what you are
writing about, this helps the mind describe the situation, it also makes it
sound much more realistic.
Use inspiration from other pieces of writing

who you really are.
I'm sorry they never notice
how you try so hard.
I'm sorry that you're lonely,
without a cause or friend.
I'm sorry that they call you a freak;
your confidence - they bend.
I'm sorry you're emotional
and get sad over little things.
And I'm sorry that you're childish,
waiting for what the rainbow brings.
I'm sorry that you're dark -
your soul tortured since that day.
I'm sorry that you feel depressed,
helplessly looking for a new way.
I'm sorry to break it to you:
they don't wish on shooting stars.
I'm sorry that they can not see
just how beautiful you are.

Especially after the last guy and what he did to you
And I thought since I was the person you came running to.
That maybe, eventually there could be something between us
And you would believe me when I say I am not thinking of my penis.
When I say I long to hear your voice, even if it's only for a little while
And I love the way your delicate dimples develop whenever you smile.
I even love the way you chew your nails wildly whenever you’re nervous.
So when my suppressed feelings for you begin to pierce through the surface
And I confess all of the affection held captive in my chest.
You say that you love me but you can only see me as a best...

1. First Drafts ALWAYS Suck
It's a simple fact. You won't be a pro from the beginning, no matter how much natural talent you may have. Just accept this. So how do you deal with this? Just write. Write the first draft of whatever you're working on. Write a lot of it, if not all of it. From when you start and when you stop, you will see a HUGE progression in your writing. You'll see just how much your writing evolved and improved over time, especially if you got feedback along the way.

What do you guys think what should've been added and what should've been removed?
In my opinions.....
What should be removed:
*The whole "Thneedville" croc
*The point-less "Romantic" sub-plot
*The Thneedville citizens/characters
*The whole Musical act (even though I liked a few of the songs)
*Making the Once-Ler into an old man (he could've at least wait until the end of winter to plant the last Truffula seed all by himself, instead of wasting 50 years of his life waiting for someone else to plant it -_- )
What I'd like to add to the story:
*Stretch the characters (just a little bit) and the interactions of the Lorax and Once-Ler (like the Lorax's love of the forest and how Once-Ler slowly became the Greed-Le

Somewhere a seagull screeched; its call almost lost amongst the roar of the waves. A sigh escaped her lips, its sadness surprising her. It was the sigh of a woman who felt lost. The sigh of a woman who knew not where her heart completely lies. Deep inside, Ariel felt torn between the sea and the man she loved.
