MamaMama, you're not home anymore
You don't pick up the phone
You keep on promising it'll be okay
And wondering why I feel alone
But brother's stressed and so am I
I'm so scared, but I don't show it
Daddy's stressed because it's all ending
I wish I could pretend not to know it
I hide in my room and I close the door
Blasting my stereo
So I can drown out the sound of the fight,
You two shouting on the floor below
I know that you do deserve much better
I know he doesn't treat you right
But that doesn't soften the ache in my eyes
When you're arguing every night
You keep making promises
But you don't follow through
You say you'll be back by nine
But you walk through the door at two
Doors keep slamming and people keep yelling
I don't know why I can't cry
But I can't shed a single tear
Even when I try
He blames you for everything
From the divorce to my grades
He doesn't know that he's the reason
Why my motivation fades
I remember when I trusted easily
I remember when I believed
But I am not resig
I'm Anti FeministI’m antifeminist.More Like This
No, not because I’m a “woman hater” or in terrible self-denial, but because I’ve seen feminism, through actions and spoken word.
I’ve seen how the word ‘feminist’, or ‘feminism’, causes many to turn away in disgusts or to roll their eyes in a ‘here we go again’ manner.
I’ve seen the hypocrisy.
“We are not man haters.” Yet you slander the title of every man who dare rises against you, even with by hard work, he’s earned his position. You verbally assault, then play society’s victim, it’s getting old.
“We want equality.” Really, or do you want to be on top, do you want to rule the world? The word equality, is derived from the word ‘equal’. How can you scream for equality when you don’t even know how to be equal yourselves?
Learn to practice what you preach.
How can you force your beliefs onto someone when you don’t even li

Introducing thoughtART Technology
A few years ago, deviantART teamed up with several university laboratories across the United States, and we are proud to finally announce the fruits of our efforts. Thanks to recent advancements in neurological science, we're unveiling a revolutionary new platform in artistic creation. Our device uses touch-sensitive pads built into your existing keyboard and mouse to monitor your brainwaves and transmit them directly to our site. Excited?

Monster InsideMore Like This
The monster inside her weakens her
Takes away the happiness of life,
And her genuine smile,
Replacing it with a fictitious, fake mask,
Worn only in front of family and friends.
It wears her down, from the inside out,
A demon inside taking control of her body,
Banishing her out,
Making her feel as if she is a spectator in her own body
She is devoid of all content emotions:
Happiness, joy, excitement.
Yet the ruthless emotions stay,
As if feeding the creature within each passing day:
Heartbreak, pain, anger, fear
Walking in a vast expanse of darkness,
All she can do is search,
Day and night,
For that small light full of hope,
Full of meaning,
That will lead her to her old self,
The person she used to be.
I was able to imagine,
To live in my own little world of imagination.
I could actually smile
Without putting on an act for others.
I felt as if there was a meaning to life,
But now there's nothing important enough in my life to live for.
But, most importantly,

How to Make a decent homestuck troll OC.THE DO'S AND DO NOT'S OF MAKING A HOMESTUCK TROLL OC.More Like This
1) THE NAME.
- Make it something we can pronounce. Not some stupid shit like Jukgth Ghtyfk.
- The first name HAS TO BE 6 LETTERS long.
- The last name HAS TO BE 6 LETTERS long as well.
- Your troll CANNOT have the last name of an actual canon troll.
- Nor can they be related at all.
2) TYPING QUIRKS.
- Make it something readable at least. Keep it simple.
- Don't use the ones that are over used. Like replacing S with $.
- Be creative.
3) BLOOD COLORS.
- Be realistic guys and stay with the program. Don't make them have some stupid rainbow blood or something. That screams Mary-sue.
- Your troll may be a mutant blood. It is rare but it happens. So it's okay, just don't make them flaunt it. They will be culled.
- Black and White are not colors, they are shades and tints. So therefor they cannot be blood COLORS. (This includes grey/gray)
- Lime is a canon color, but lime bloods have gone extinct.
- Your trolls blood cannot change colors.
Fantroll guide -UNFINISHED, BUT I NEED SLEEP-After seeing so many mary-sue trolls, I decided to try and make a rant about them. I may post this as a deviation if I get some positive feedback. Be warned, I know the basic facts. I'm trusting the wiki to back me up on some of these! If you know what I said was wrong, please let me know!More Like This
Ezurth Thraot will be our example fantroll, because I don't want to use any of my own. Ezurth Thraot is a faceless name that I created using a generator. Please take no offense, any characters actually named Ezurth Thraot.
Name: Emikey Thraot
Age: 6 sweeps
Blood color: Candy Red
Sign: Infinity symbol
Matesprit: Sollux Captor
Kismesis: Gamzee Makara
Morail: Nepeta Leijon
NOPE. STOP RIGHT THERE, PLEASE.
Try to think of something that would sound like it would belong to a troll, not a human! Emikey just sounds like a misspelling of Emily. We'll keep the last name, because it sounds like it wouldn't be from here. Let's give her the name Ezurth. Some people put meaning behind th

I Don't CareThose heart-wrenching feelings have long since passedMore Like This
Of togetherness, of love
Later came the shock of agony
Which I have rose above
Now I see you on the floor
Cold and bumpy to the touch
Remembering the last time I saw you
And how I used to feel so much
Remind me of the days of holding hands
Fingers entwined between fishnet gloves
Passionate, tender moments, exchanging hot kisses
With a girl I used to love
You are round and brown with little black bumps
A cute smile painted for a face
You had a match worn by another
But that was in another place
I don't think much of her anymore
She doesn't come to mind
And I believe it's for the better
To leave the past behind
Maybe she still thinks of me
Running my fingers through her hair
Maybe she still has those photos
But I honestly don't care
I don't know who she's with or where she is
Or if she's got a new madame
But I don't really want to know
Because I don't really give a damn
All I know is that I'm fine
And what's meant to be will be
Bridget and Emily on HomophobiaEMILY:More Like This
My mom found out you're a lesbian. She forbid me from going to San Fran for college with you. I chewed her ass. I can go again now. She got all high and mighty and lectured me about how she'll "not have me become a lesbian" and blah blah blah.
I hate this place so much, Bridget. Don't worry, I defended you with my life. I'm proud to call you my friend. She can't take that from me.
Emily, that means more to me than you will ever know.
What irks me is that some of my friend's parents feel that because I like girls, it means that I'm some kind of creep out to turn all her female friends, which isn't true in the slightest. The same thinking could be used in reverse; A lot of my friends are straight, both males and females. That doesn't mean that me spending time with them is going to make me heterosexual.
Thank you so much. I really hope I get to see you soon... I love and miss you so much, Thank you for defending me.
It's what I had to do. You'r

Seriously, you guys all mean so much to me, and I'm not just saying that! I really mean it!
Ok, I've probably said this before; but if it hadn't been for you guys, the SPIKE novel and that whole project of mine might not have been continued at all. And, well, yes, I know I haven't uploaded anything in forever, but I never gave up on the novel, I kept on working on it, figuring out details, planning the future chapters, editing, and so on.. and that's all thanks to you guys and the feedback you've given me!
I am truly grateful for that. I really, really am...!
And I'm sorry for not replying to all of your lovely comments, notes and such... I do read it all though, and I appreciate it all, and I wish I had the time to actually reply to every single message I get from you, but it's not all that easy.... But as said, I read them all, and I love all the love you'
