My Kingdom
Giving chase to yet another dream
they tell me it's unreachable
Fear scorching through my bloodstream
Am I being unreasonable?
I'm so tired of running this race
Where is the finish line?
Like that, hope gone without a trace
Could it all be broken by design?
(I feel it slipping through my hands
This kingdom I created
My feet are locked in sinking sand
while my mind seems liberated
I feel it as it slips away
the best I ever built
A single look, it all decays
My dreams traded for guilt
Words tear down these glistening halls
My kingdom falls, my kingdom falls)
Hands of doubt against my airway
Choke the life right out of me
Artistry is simply child's play
Give up now, bend the knee
Back away, don't hold too tight
to pointless, blind desire
Never reach for untried heights
You'll just fall into the fire
/My stained glass windows
Traded in for monochrome walls
Once I was my own hero
Now look how far I had to fall
Just to please the minds so small/

Another year older, and still nothing has changed
Another burden to shoulder, an appearance to maintain
I don't want to just survive
I want to feel alive
I will let our souls collide
You've always called for sacrifice
(I will self-destruct
if it means that I can let you in
It's a different kind of pain
Severing the sin)
Healing never comes without some kind of ache
If there's no risk of breaking, then there's nothing at stake
So come and set my heart alight
Until I've finally realized
Only you can satisfy
Only you can
Anything good's worth fighting for
Anything good's worth fighting for
Anything good's worth fighting for (x2)
So I will be strong and wage this war
Even when I fall to the floor
You are there waiting at my door
Anything good's worth fighting for
Anything good's worth fighting for
How could I ever ask for more

Old Souls
I am desperate for the quiet,
to embrace the wondrous night
And it's true, I won't deny it
The silence, it just feels right
Well this world with all its wisdom,
to my heart it's just noise
Why do I feel like a victim
trapped within the politics and silly little choices
Heaven knows I long for more than this
(Where are the old souls
Where's the wind in the sails
Maybe we're all fools
to believe in fairytales
The things of this world they come and go
Don't blink or you'll miss it
Well I prefer to take it slow
and forget the status quo)
Can we just be silent
in each other's company
And, if we must speak then let it be of the universe
in all it's beauty
I don't know if you can hear me
If you can give me a sign
because I'm feeling like a draftee
trapped within a brutal war of superficial frontlines
Is there someone there who longs for more than this
/I'm ready to depart
these shores that drain my heart,
to believe in dreams again
I'm ready to set sail
and move beyond the veil

A Friend Lost, A Love Found
Varia sat alone in the First Enchanter's study, staring blankly at the floor as tears silently streamed down her face. She hadn't been prepared for the news of Jocelyn's failed Harrowing and had taken it much harder than Irving had expected. He had hated leaving her alone, but he needed to take care of the paperwork and preparations for the girl's funeral in a timely manner.
So he had sent Cullen to sit with her.
The young templar hovered in the doorway of the room, simply watching her. He had lost his own family one by

It's been a long while since I've updated my journal, hasn't it? Some of you might think I just dropped off the face of the earth and I might as well have done just that.

I've barely touched deviantArt for about 7 months. One month of that was due to me participating in NaNoWriMo, about three months of it was just me being lazy, and the past three is due to a number of complicated things. I won't go into the details, but I've been working through some personal stuff and it's taken a massive toll on my inspiration and motivation to do artwork. The only thing that hasn't been seemingly stamped out is my ability for writing lyrics or poetry, because, to me, that is the most effective outlet I have for expressing the emotions I've experienced during my absence.

Like I said, it's all pretty personal. These days, my life is so consumed with work and my tiny excuse for a social life that my creative side has tremendously and regrettably suffered. Be patient with me, guys. I haven't uploaded a lot of stuff due to the aforementioned subjects, and my account will probably continue to be dead for a little bit longer. I don't know when I'll emerge from this pattern, but I know I will at some point.

If you pray, please pray for me. If not, that's alright. Just thanks for listening and faithfully following my work, no matter how little of it I manage to churn out.

Again, I'm sorry for the absence. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things soon.

For those of you who stick around to enjoy my work, I appreciate you. You guys are awesome.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a Christian and have no regret in saying it. All of my hope is in God, for He is the only one who truly knows who I am.

I'm a self taught artist, which means I've only grown by studying other artists styles and then applying what I learn in my own work. I try to be well rounded in my art. Writing is my passion, but drawing, music, photography, and film-making are things I enjoy as well. My gallery speaks for me on these matters so please take a look.

I'm a good listener, a reckless dreamer, and a little on the quiet side.

I have an incredible appreciation for art in every form. Art is creation, and creation is beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by.

The information on your alien profile is very interesting and useful for me as I have been brainstorming on a sci-fi novel of my own.
