Black magic Shaman by jewelryandstuff fav.me/d5dnd8b by jewelryandstuff from Bosnia and Herzegovina! :clap:

Black MagicI am a human, my gender is female.
My hair is bluish-black and skin is pale.
I can say I am alive, but only physically.
Feelings are dead, there is no sympathy.
Over the times battle scars got deeper.
Becoming tired inside,
my soul is crippled.
All good I touch becomes filth.
Conscience goes blank without guilt.
With pain of  my bleeding heart,
I suffered constantly, I suffered to much.
No way to describe it unless you share same fate.
Imagining better world on the end of the rails.
Someone will notice and give you a hand.
You persuade yourself there is still some hope,
but future tailored paths of past again,
covered with mystic fog.
Everyone's gone!
''Hey my dear all mighty God!
 Where are you now?
 Saving some hungry children
 or sharing a peace and justice?
 I can't hear you,
 do you even care?
 You left me too,
 I am very scared.''

holding my favorite black pen,

Na ovom tlu na kom stojim,
gdje nema nikog,
zovem i molim tajnu tvoje moci!
Sa tvojom svjetloscu
brisem sve tudje tragove,
a sa tamom koju moja dusa nosi,
osvajam podanike.
Sa obje strane,
sa Sunca i Mjeseca,
podzemlja i horizonta,
opstajem,
jer ti dajem sebe,

Sjenke tumaraju,

:bulletblack: We adopted a proposal for the exchange of so-called "Features" in order to promote as many members of our group as possible.

:bulletblack: A "feature" is a promotion of some other artist on your own page, usually through a journal feature displaying a thumbnail of their artworks.
Displaying a thumbnail in your journal can be done only by people who have payed  a "premium membership" on Deviant Art.
FAQ #28: What are the benefits of becoming a Core Member?
FAQ #66: What journal features do I have access to?

:bulletblack: In this journal we will give a list of people who are willing to make feature trades with other members of the group.
To make a feature trade you have to contact them personally sending them a note.
The group Dark-Balkans has nothing to do with your own agreements, we just give a list of people who would like to have a feature exchange.

:bulletblack: All members who would like to be on this list can comment on this blog or send a note to our group [notes should be sent with the subject: Feature Trade - your own username (example: Feature Trade - joscreative)].
It would also be great to write immediately how many works would you like to display in a feature for how much time.



List of people who would like to make a feature trade:

1. SVEM :iconsvem:
- one featured deviation for 1 month
- I will feature everyone who sends me a note =] with the deviation you would like to have featured.
You don't have to feature me, & make a feature trade. Mention me in your journal is allowed ;D
