I had forgotten how hard it is To spin words into poetry To make something sound even remotely nice enough Remotely worthy Of being read. I had forgotten how to express myself in a manner eloquent enough for understanding. I had committed myself to the crisis of endless rambling. I don't write because I am good at it Rather because then there will be something left Of my mind When I die Or when I lose it. Whichever comes first, I suppose.

what does it feel like to be sober at a party?
sometimes you want to spit out your teeth because you’ve been grinding them so hard under a diaphanous coating of crimson lipstick; but you know the floors already freckled with confetti- aluminum and glass and paper- and the eburnean pearls tucked away in your mouth are not able to be recycled and sometimes it’s rivulets on the back of your neck, droplets dripping like honey, because the rooms heating up from people swarming like bees; as your cheeks burgeon like crimson roses your oversized sweater becomes your only source of safety- maybe from the constant touch of others, as they bump around like lost passengers at a train

Hello everyone - first of all, thank you so much for watching me. It means so much. Secondly, I just found a bunch of drawings that I have yet to upload, and I made another flower crown. So stay tuned for more. Thanks again, Berkley

Critiques
Hey everyone! Thank you so much for supporting my art, it really makes me feel like what I am doing is worth something. Because of that, I strive to improve and I'm going to ask for your help. I'm too cheap to upgrade to a Core Membership for a "formal" critique request, so I'll just ask here. Please give me some thoughtful responses on my work - what's good and what needs to be improved. Thanks a bunch!!

A lot of my work has inspiration from outside sources. I do not credit these sources on the individual deviations but I will credit them here. If any one finds a piece of mine that resembles theirs, please let me know with your name and proof that you were the inspiration and I will credit you as an individual. Thank you.

i just wanted to take the time to tell you thank you. i've seen your comments and favorites and i was really pressed for time up until now. i've been wanting to respond for a long time and i'm happy that now i finally have a moment to do so properly. thank you, beyond words, for your support. thank you for your unfailing kindness and your positive feedback. i've been dealing with a lot lately and DeviantArt is the only place where i can really turn the problems into positivity. And while the writing aspect does wonders for emotional relief, it's the feeling of being seen that makes the real difference. when i see people like you commenting and giving praise, it does more than make my day. it makes me feel as though i can bring something good out of the negativity that i face. you really help to make a difference, so thank you.
