reasons to love a shy girl
i. men fear strong women,
but she's far from strong.
this wisp of a girl
doesn't even need a hurricane
to fall apart.
she'd glued and re-glued,
old bonds wearing thin,
but if you ask politely,
she'll let you touch her scars.
ii. her lips are fettered in rusted chains.
you'd need a crowbar to pry up
her whispered secrets.
you are not worthy to hear her voice
just as she is not worthy to give it to you.
she told me everything she knows,
and i shut it away,
kept it safe.
i tied the threads into double knots
just to make sure
they wouldn't curl away from me,
twisted up like a dead spider's legs.
iii. she is hewn from shadow,
woven from grains of sand.
you might think she'd flow,
breeze by on a sparrow's breath,
but she's never been good at
anything but sinking.
she is buried treasure, and all
the things you wish you could forget.
iv. you found her washed up on the shore,
drawing pictures of her flickering soul,
and knew she was too unsteady to love.
when you reached for her heart,
your han

5 SIGNS YOUR FAN-FICTION IS AWFUL
 
5) YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE ISN'T ENGLISH, YET YOU PUBLISH IN ENGLISH

A lot of times when a story on DA is especially awful, I'll click on the author's avatar and find out they are from Poland, the Phillippines, or Chile. That is - their story is written in english, but english isn't their native language.
If a writer has a good grasp of english, that's not a problem. However, that is rarely the case - far from having an understanding of english, it's clear they've used google-translator to convert the text.
That would be like me writing a story in my native english, then google-translating it into japanese, then posting it on an asian fiction site - for ACTUAL Japanese people to read. Does that sound like a good idea? Do you think a japanese reader would like to be subjected to the terrible, unreadable grammar this would produce?
Here's a recent example I found from a dA author (I've cha

Little!2p!America x Little!Reader
Warning: Little Al swears once or twice. Cuz he's a naughty little child. ^^
~
Al laughed in your face, and said childishly, even for him, “You’re such a girl!”
“Am not!” you protested, getting frustrated with your good friend.
He instantly retaliated, “Are too!”
“No, I’m not!” you hollered. “Bet I can climb to the top of this tree before you can!”
Al laughed again, even harder, “I’d never lose to a little girl!”
“Oh, yeah?! Bring it!” you said, hands on your hips.
Al grinned, showing his smile lacking more than a few baby teeth due to his constant fighting. Some with Matt, and some of course with you. But there were many more competitions than fights, as you were always trying to prove to the insolent child that girls were just as good as guys when they put their mind to it.
So he ran for the tree, giving himself a rather unfair head start. “You’re on, _____!”

I heard the reasons you left today
I felt the pain that made you go away
I cried the tears that you couldn't find
I walked the trail that you left behind.
A heart, once beating
Lies buried, still in the earth
breath, worth breathing
stopped short, ignoring the birth.
A life taken with one simple misfortune.
A tragedy of fiction
to real to imagine.
I followed the clues that you left for someone to find.
I acknowledged the truth that ended your life
I fought myself to get to you.
But you lost before you fought.
A battle won and lost
an ending a new start.
A heart, once beating
Lies buried, still in the earth
breath, worth breathing

A life taken with one simple misfortune.
A tragedy of fiction

Embraced with one common thread
we look for your hands, for your face
In the shadows I find you.
In the tapes left behind.

nine reasons why you should
nine reasons why you should never love a poet:
one.
we like to hear things like 'you're beautiful' and
'i'd die without you' but deep inside we always know
you don't mean it.
and it just tears us apart slowly, no matter how much
we love those poisonous lies.
two.
and when you ask 'are you okay?', we're going to
answer with 'i'm fine'. and you'll hear that
even if our bones are shattering inside of us and
our hands are trembling from all the hurt that we go through.
three.
because we play our music too-loud-to-bear so that,
when we're all alone,
it chases away the thoughts that come with the silence:
things that haunt our nightmares and reasons why
we don't like to be alive.
four.  
we leave too many s p a c e s between our letters because
that's how we feel. all a.l.o.n.e.
and maybe you'll change that for a little while, but
in the end, it's all the same.

Top Ten: Why Twilight sucks.
1.Stephanie Meyer can't write.  And I'm not saying that because of what Stephen King said.  I don't care what Stephen King said.  Let's recap, shall we?  She uses the same words such as "icy", "cold", "marble" and "his beautiful face" over and over.   She describes Edward in extremely unnecessary detail.  Honestly, if she took out all those descriptions of Edward, the whole Twilight "saga" would fit into one book. She includes totally useless information that NO ONE (except for maybe the crazy fan girls) cares about.   I don't give a damn if Bella rode to Forks with her mom's car windows rolled down!  Really, I don't.  Also, this so-called-saga has no real plot to it whatsoever.  And no, romance does not count as a "plot."  Romance is a genre.  A genre which involves a plot.  It has no real characterization either.   Sure, Bella may turn into a vampire, but did she really learn any life lessons, or become a better person because of her experiences?  Of course not!  Which brings me to m

Free Will
Free Will.
Is free will a devout gift or a curse?
Was it free will that granted a desperate man to steal an old lady's purse?
Was it free will that resulted in multiple bodies carried in a hearse?
Was it free will that justified a police officer to shoot the accused first?
Was it free will that allowed a family man's mentality to be so perverse?
Could this world of ours get any worse?
Free will gives us the chance for all of us to be distinctive.
But as a consequence people can act corruptive and vindictive.
But without this choice, our lives would be constrained and restrictive.
Undoubtedly these two differing perspectives are contrasting and conflictive.
Without free will our actions and thoughts would be controlled and predictive.
But with this gift our proceedings maybe considered as harmful and afflictive.
Of course free will does has have it's varied betterments.
This advantage allows us to direct and assert our developing intelligence.

She didn't want to open her eyes. The buzzing of the alarm was consistent, repetitive, and crushing; Karin reached like a sloth over to the side of the bed and clicked the snooze button.
"Damn," Karin rolled over in bed, pulling the white sheets closer to her, "My head..."
Yuzu was downstairs already making breakfast, her face squished in determination, tongue slightly stuck out as she whipped a bowl of pancake batter and reached her elbow across the stove to turn the oven burner on. She glanced and saw Karin descending the staircase out of the corner of her eye and smiled wide.
"Karin-chan! You're awake, finally!"
"Yeah," Karin rubbed her eyes wearily, sliding her hand down her face lazily, trying to ingore the throbbing beat of her heart in her head.
She plopped down at the table and heaved a sigh as Yuzu slapped two plates on the table and ran back to check on the pancakes.

My Life and a New Start
I wanna share a story with you guys. I feel like you deserve something from me and this is coming straight from my heart. This little story is real, this is my personal life. For many of you, if not all, you know I have very little problem with sharing my personal feelings and views. I try to be as honest as I possibly can be and try to act with great care and consideration for the feelings of others. That being said, I'm not perfect and sometimes I can lose my temper and act irrationally. But as I think today, I know the person I am and the person I strive to be. I'm a reclusive perfectionist who enjoys a lot and wide range of hobbies and sharing stories and my thoughts in high hopes their lives are better for it. I know I have a long history of putting myself last on the list, many times I have made myself miserable for the sake of someone else's happiness. Even if that was just fleeting, I tried anyway.

reasons not to ask me to leave
the way in which i want you is not quiet.  it is the constant tug at the hem of my skirt,
the begging child gobbling a litany with hungry little teeth and spewing thickly over every please-please-please.
the words are littering the floor and i sigh as i sweep them up into the dustbin to empty with a thump outside my window.
it is a nervous little owl, anxious hoots biting its beak and eyes
the size of egypt swallowing every piece of you they can find;
lustful eyes, pale like the moon in its overbearing white-moth slumber, worn in the shape of
oversized glasses with a horned rim.
it is the trumpeter swan's call, the winter-ivory paint thrown over its feathers.
it is obtrusive in its noise,
it is the treaded water enveloping every bone's curvature in my body,
it is my fingers on your arm, asking you to please call me bluebird.
it is the sketchpad in which i draw,
the old, dust-smelling book so rich in every beautiful thing under the sun between whose pages i press auburn leaves

"WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAIR?! YOUR GORGEOUS HAIR?!"
I cut it off.

Because I'm tired of being confused.
Because for once, just once, I want to look like I feel.

Because this lets me cover those curves I never wanted in the first place.

It Didn't Reach The Ground...
It doesn't even reach the ground...
The snow just slowly falls around.
It was beautiful, I had to admit,
But it just didn't seem to fit.
The way it fell down in the south;
It didn't even reach my mouth.
It then melted into rain
And I was sad; Left in pain.
A silly thing to be sad about,
But I have never seen the snow throughout.
The first time my eyes set sight
On the rain and snow falling in the night.
Disappointment ran through my veins
And I was just left to hate the rains.
For they expertly wash away everything.
The snow; Something I have never seen.
I despise it when it betrays me so,
For it's melting what I don't want to go.
Now, It's stopped snowing and I go forth,
Yearning to go on straight to the North.
Somewhere where there's everything
And only to the rain, I don't have to cling.
I do love them, Ihonestly do
However I'm longing for something entirely new.

A Week Of Kisses
 
i.
The first day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your shoulder,
Well before I thought about your lips.
Because I don’t know what I am doing, firstly,
But more importantly,
It’s because I know things can spiral quickly,
If things start shifting
After we lay down the concrete.
So I kiss the foundation,
Before we reach the soil.
 
ii.
The second day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your elbow,
Because it holds together the touch
And the flex.
But truly,
To exhibit it,
I must kiss the joint that bends
And combines us together.
 
iii.
The third day I told you I loved you,
I lay my lips to your temples,
As I learned about the temple of reform,
For the Youth in North America.
Kissing you there signifying I will protect you,
As well as your temple,
As we re-form, into something more.
 
iv.
The fourth day I told you I loved you,
I’d kiss you softly on your forehead.
Because that’s what holds your brillian

See Me
See Me
I want,
To grate my nails down your spine,
Rip the skin, make you bleed,
Hurt you, twist you,
Force you to see me,
For once,
Maybe
I won't hold my breath
I want,
To rip your eyes out,
Since you don't seem to see me,
Pull, harder and harder,
Until they pop out,
And I can see into your mind,
Literally
I wonder if anything's in there?
I want,
To kick you on the backs of your knees,
Make you stumble, fall
Frightening, isn't it,
To feel such fear,
To feel weak?
You should have thought about that,
A long fucking time ago
I want,
To break you,
Like you thought you broke me
But you were wrong,
You didn't see me, the real me
I was more cunning,
Than you could have ever dreamed,
Than you would have ever believed
I want,
To watch you fail miserably,
As you try to explain,
Your actions,
Your mistakes,
The choices that YOU made,
As you attempt to come up with reasons,
And pointless excuses
I want,

Reasons To Be a Carnivor
REASONS TO BE A CARNIVOR
Before I receive any angry comments I would like to point out that this is only a spoof of the many Vegetarian websites on the internet. It is not meant to be taken seriously. Honest.
And to those of you who think I am a heartless sadistic animal-abuser – yes, you are right.

ENVIROMENT
1. Vast acres of forests are cleared every year for cattle grazing. This land could be used to grow plants, which would feed far more people than animals. The solution is clear – get rid of the perpetrators. Eat the cattle.
2. Many endangered species (such as wolves) are shot for eating livestock. Remove temptation for them. Eat farm animals.
3. Cow farts are one of the major causes of climate change. Take revenge. It’s your right.
4. Large carnivorous have been driven to the brink of extinction. If we do not eat the herbivores they will die a slow painful death due to starvation.
5. Being a vegetarian does not reduce air pollution. Eat like a cow, fart like

Unchearted
Home is where the heart is.
                                    
Where do you go if you have no heart?
The end is where the start is.
How can you proceed.
Without a fully motorized engine?
The inanimate body still bleeds.
How can we function and operate.
Without a soul purpose?
Love and pain refuse to cooperate.
Life becomes incomplete

Why we REALLY hate fat girls
Hello. If you're reading this, keep in mind the person writing it is a chubby chaser. This is a list of the REAL FUCKING REASONS we ("we" being "us boys/men") don't want to date you tubby girls.
1.   You complain about being overweight.
You know those emo kids in the corner? The ones who bitch and moan about every little thing until you swear their heads will implode from being so angsty? Yeah. That's what you're like. If you complain about yourself all the time about something you usually have control over, then either DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT or STFU please. When you hear something enough times, you start to believe it- so if we hear you griping about how ugly and fat you are, what are we going to think about you? Let's face it, nobody likes hanging around whining people (which is why everybody hates little kids) so knock that shit off and you just might score a boyfriend.
2.   You stink.
There are two types of general stank: The "you just got home f

reasons...
As I sat and remembered
Every bad and good in my life
I felt this life slipping away
And my life completely lost reason
As I sat and thought
What to do? What to do?
To wake myself up
To find myself
I was lost in depression
I was sleeping in darkness
I shall be the light
To Help and guide people
I shall be hope
To give a reason to keep on living
I shall be happiness
To draw smiles on their faces
I shall be love
To plant happiness in their hearts
I shall be a drop of rain
To make a difference in this world
I shall be the reason
For someone's existence
I shall forget my past…live my present
I shall give but never take…
I want a reason to dream again
To live again
To hope again….

Bury Me with Your Reasons
Maybe I'm crazy
to think I could be loved.
All the time wasted searching
being pushed and shoved.
Just a race for others, all about the fun
except for me it's about
survival and a loaded gun.
Twisted self induced torture
that goes on for days,
lonliness to que the music.
What they've said
plays,
"You're too fat,
you're too white.
I'm too shallow,
it doesn't feel right.
You're like a brother,
just another guy,
maybe in the future.."
Maybe's just a lie.
"You're too much drama,
it's all about the karma.
It's your crazy mama, besides
you'll find another girl."
Screwed up promise
"You're a little on the short end
just being honest.
I just like flirting so
why do you have ruin it?
I need you
like I need a kleenex.
I'm sure that's okay,
blow you off
and throw you away.
I think I like you
so why do you love me,
and I crush on other guys
so I guess you're crazy"
...
Yeah I guess I'm just crazy.

Hold On
   Hold On
When you,
Feel cold and weak
When you,
Can't seem to sleep
When you,
Seem to fall
When your,
Voice can't seem to call
That's when,
You rise above
And show the world...
What you're really made of...!
Hold on!
To what makes you strong!
Hold on!
Until you're gone!
Hold on!
Through day and night!
Hold on!
And always fight!
Hold on!
When you're left for dead!
Hold on!
With every breath!
Every day is a victory...!
As long as you are holding...
On!
When you,
Want to run away
When you,
Need reasons to stay
That's when,
The time is near,
For answers,
That you need so clear
When you,
Have nothing left,
That's when,
You face your true test...!
And so you:
Hold on!
To what makes you strong!
Hold on!
Until you're gone!
Hold on!
Through day and night!
Hold on!
And always fight!
Hold on!
When you're left for dead!
Hold on!
With every breath!
Every day is a victory...!
As long as you are holding...

It requires a revolution...
In the way you think!
You need your retributio

5 Reasons to do it the traditional way
5 Reasons to do it the traditional way
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
:painter:

1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes

10 Good Reasons To Be Gay
10 Good Reasons ToChoose To Be Gay
Reason 1- Because of all the people who love us. Like the protesters at pride, the murderers of hundreds of gay people, and the families who disown their kids for being homosexual.
Reason 2- Because of all the warm fuzzy feelings of suicide we get when we drive ourselves insane about how our best friends will react when we come out.
Reason 3- Because it's a load more interesting to love in secret and never be able to go out in public with your girlfriend.
Reason 4- Because it's so awesome that gay people can't even get married, because it's against the LAW to love someone.
Reason 5- Because everyone at church is totally supportive and they would just encourage you to be the gayest person you can be, because Leviticus says so.
Reason 6- Because if you DID go out in public with your girlfriend, everyone would go "AWWW" in unison and throw rice and flower pedals at you like you just got married.
Reason 7- Because it's WONDERFUL exercise for your brain to

Chemistry
It's all chemicals, like Breaking Bad
But the lab is you, just chain reactions
Hormones and Pheromones, what decide the actions
Dopamine and Endorphins, bonds created, it's Oxytocin
And I need more Nicotine to get rid if the memories
Jump, do it for Adrenaline, I wanna feel the ecstasy
Abusing the Caffeine, not taking my Vitamins
Subscribe me some Medicine, cause Alcohol
Seems to work no more, forget the Aspirin
Morphine, Morphine, I can't take no more
Have you ever smelled Chloroform? I once sniffed Acetone
That's childish, so instead, bring out the Cannabis
It's not enough, get Meth, Cocaine, maybe some Heroin?
I've heard that Ketamine is the new Amphetamine
My brain's on Steroids, perhaps more Sedatives?
Could it be that LSD is what's right for me
No it's not, I still hate how I feel
So Cyanide or some Lead or Mercury
Was I allergic to Arsenic? I'm not feeling the kick
Oh god, I feel sick. But the pain is gone
There's only light at the end of the tunnel

6 Reasons to Write a 2nd Novel Before Publishing
6 Reasons to Write a Second Novel before Publishing the First
Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 7 “From Story to Art” – Section 5 “A Second Novel”
With Links to Supplementary Material
After writing my first novel, I gave it to my writing instructor so that he could see what I needed to improve. This process took a long time... a very long time; and so I decided that the only thing to do was to work on a second (and then third) novel before I got the first one back. The result? The two first drafts that I created were, by far, better than the eighth draft of my original novel, and my skills increased through writing and editing them, more than through the entire process of writing my first novel. Today, I'm going to explain why this happened, and make a case for why all beginning writers should write a second novel before

Th1rteen R3asons Why, A Review
Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher is the kind of book that makes you want to write something profound, like an entire history of your life, full of all the little details that might push you off the edge, like Hannah Baker did.  But you just can't.  Either you can't find the words to say, or you don't have the experiences to back it up.  You sit down to write and nothing comes out of it.  Even if it isn't some 'anthology of my life' you just can't write anything.
It's the kind of book that makes you want to take a hot shower and just stand there under the water until the hot water runs out and your teeth start chattering.  You just don't know what to do with yourself.  There's nothing to do.  You just think back on the book.  And there isn't even any thoughts about it.  The book just lies there in the back of your mind, but nothing's at the front of your mind, so it can't really be a

50 Reasons why Clinton should not be President
1. She won a rigged primary contest against Bernie Sanders. The Democrats rigged it against him and he narrowly lost because of it.
2. She is beholden to corporate and Wall Street banking interests.
3. She will expand unfair and unfree trade deals to benefit said corporate interests
4. She voted for the war in Iraq.
5. She values globalism more than American interests. The president must uphold the Constitution first and foremost, even when it conflicts with globalism.
6. She mishandled the situation in Libya, leading to several Americans dying there, including the ambassador to Libya. She ignored 600 requests for additional security. Had she heeded even one of them, those dead Americans might still be alive today.
7. She mishandled the "reset" with Russia, which has become more aggressive today, even to the point of invading other countries.
8. She knew of Saudi support for ISIS and kept it a secret.
9. She rode into the White House (or is about to) on the coattails of Bill Clinton. I
