My Nights
Nightmares plague my dreams,
Eerie whispers in all the dark,
Shadows lerking in all around me,
And a silhouetted face hidden from view;
These are my nights.
The cries of lost souls echoed through my mind,
An aching smell of blood,
Pain ricocheting from my toes to my head,
And a clear feeling of fear;
These are my nights.
No end to the corridors,
The air suffocating my soul,
Footprints etched into my belly,
Doctors watching my every move,
These are my nights.
My heart drowned beneath waves,
Adrenaline pumping through my veins,
Sweat beaded on my brow,
Drums in my ears;
These are my nights.
No end to the twists,
The ghosts of my past relentless,
Seeking to destroy me,
And watch me cringe;
These are my nights.
But hope lies within,
A chance for redemption,
The gift of a lifetime,
Something no one can take away;
These are my nights.

Last Piece of my Heart
Let me say the words today
to have him here by my side.
Let him be the for for me
to have and hold for all time.
Now he's here for me to share my love,
to hold and show me I'm the one.
He makes me smile, he makes me laugh,
My life with him is something I feel I've won.
I feel I'm mean but my heart I blame,
for it's been soiled with so much pain.
But now I'm ready to let this someone in,
the one who brightens my day.
The one I speak of is him!
He turns his shoulder, I think it's too late.
No! Please don't speak those words of my fate!
Tears fall but words I have none.
What's said is said, what's done is done.
He says his goodbyes and then he parts...
But with him, if only he knew, goes the last piece of my heart.

Fear
My eyes glistening with tears,
But not yet fallen.
I’m crying silent tears,
On the inside so you are unable to see.
All the pain running through me.
I never sleep,
For fear of what tomorrow might bring.
How can I be so lost
In a place I know so well?
Surrounded by so many?
Always forced to fight,
A fight I never seem to win.
God only knows such a fact,
I’ve fought for so long.
When will this ever end?
Sometimes I walk past everyone
As if I were invisible.
Everything’s moving with no place to go,
I tell myself that everything’s going to be ok.
What I hide is buried deep within me.
So many tears I have shed in the dark,
Hidden away in the privacy of my own thoughts.
Only to be shelved with morning’s first light,
With no courage to speak of my pain.
So instead I write them on paper.
It hurts to know that I’ll never be the same,
Knowing I’ll never be the girl I used to be.
If only you knew what I’ve been through,
If only you could tak

GorgeousWreck's Profile Picture

Kryssi McGuire
Artist | Student | Photography
United States
My name is Kryssi. Some people know me as Vampress.

I am almost 27 years old. I currently live in Oregon and have been here since November of 2010. I've always loved writing and taking photos, ever since I was little. I write stories, poems, and books. When it comes to stories I write mostly fictional; werewolves, vampires, monsters in the closets, other worlds, etc. But, as everyone will say, I write whatever I feel like. I have no boundaries and don't really care what anyone else thinks. Which is one the the things I like the most about writing.

You will notice that my gallery is rather broad when it comes to photography. Where most people like to specialize in one or two areas I like to specialize in everything. Though I must admit I am a little more into flowers and animals. However, I also like landscape and architecture, especially when I can turn them into black and white photos. Wedding and portraits are exceptionally fun and I fully intend on improving. And you will also notice, I take a fair few amount of photos of myself and/or of my boyfriend. It's a promise thing, little too personal to explain on here. But, my idea of being able to convey a message with a single photo is what drives me to keep my expertise open and wide.

The type of camera I use is a Nikon D3200 and I have two different lenses (a macro lens and a zoom lens) to go with the camera. I will normally use my camera if I know for sure I'm doing a photo shoot or if I'm planning on taking a lot of pictures for the day. Recently all I've been using is the camera on my Samsung J7 phone which is just as good as my camera.

Now, outside of DA, I am a full-time employee and a part-time student. I work to pay my college tuition out of pocket, until I can transfer to a university. I am currently studying two completely different degree's. I'm majored in social science for my social worker degree and I've minored in science for my paleontologist degree. I never thought it was important to include my education in my bio or what I was going to school for, but as of recent comments on a dinosaur photo, it clearly is important to some people.

I know it's not important to some people, but to me mentioning that I'm a Christian is important. I was raised and baptized as a Christian at a young age, but never really lived the life of a Christian. It's difficult. However, I'm I'm still giving it my best shot. Most of my recent inspiration has come from God and a movie I had recently watched, "I'm Not Ashamed". It's give me a new way to look at life.

I have two cats, Lucy and Smudge, and two dogs, Mika and Ranger. Lucy is a small 7-pound black kitty and she came into our lives at a weird time. She is my pride and joy. She followed my boyfriend home and has started with us since. Smudge is a big black and white cat who we sometimes call Miss Hitler because of the black mustache under her nose. She's often annoying but we love her. Ranger is a malinois/coyote hybrid. Mika is a gorgeous black German Shepherd/Husky who isn't really smart. I take many pics of my pets, if you haven't noticed already from looking at my gallery.

Anyways, I've think I've put enough information into this bio, so if you want to know more about me, then message me. Take care.

Interests
It's been a long while since I posted anything, since I was seriously "active" on my profile. I'll post photos from time to time, but since I lost my financial aid money, I've spent much of my time working and and relaxing on my days off. It almost seems pointless for me to even contiue on here, but, the problem is, I've put in so much work into this site that I can't bring myself to just delete it all. All the people I've met, all the pieces of work I've posted, the feedback I've gotten, the journals I've submitted? I've put so much of myself into the profile of "GorgeousWreck" that I continue to hope one day I'll get back to this and be a regular once more.

Nowadays, work seems to consume me. I work long hours to make money so I can pay bills, put food on the table for me and my family, to save money for things we want or need. But with work comes the problem of not being able to get onto my social sites very often. I'm on facebook because it's on my phone and instagram/twitter because it's on my tablet. I know I have the DA app on my tablet and the capability of posting through there. Maybe, just maybe, that is what I'll start to do instead. My tablet has become my portfolio, where I store all my photos.

Times are hard right now. I lost my financial aid not too long ago and since I lost that I can't go back to school, unless I want to pay for my classes out of pocket for a couple of terms, until I can transfer to PSU. (which I plan on doing, but I can't right now). If I can transfer to PSU then my financial aid starts over, allowing me to pay bills with school money. But until I have enough money saved up for two classes, I cannot pay out of pocket. I must continue to work as many hours as I can get, but Burgerville barely gives me 20 hours a week. Which is why I am applying for a second job, where I can possibly get another 20 hours.

It sucks; I have been trying hard to get my SSI, but my court hearing isn't until sometime next summer, a year from now. Until then I need to try and make as much money as I can and save it, to pay for bills. This is where our world has come down to, making people world every hour they possibly can just to make ends meet, sometimes just barely. We work all our lives for a tiny apartment, to put unhealthy food on our plates, to give our pets the bare minimum amount of food to keep them alive, and our children fall into the same lifestyle.

As much as I miss my babies, my son and daughter, I am almost glad they aren't here. God now holds them in his arms, sings them to sleep, and tells them stories about their mother. Everyone knows I have a son, a child I miscarried at 7 months pregnant in 2010. What no one on here knows is that I recently miscarried June 4th of this year (10 days before my son's birthday), at 2 months with another child I believe to be a girl. The details do not matter. What matters is that I now have two babies in heaven who are save in the arms of my Lord, protected by angels. I have wished to hold them, to see their eyes, and watch them grow up. But with the way our world is falling apart, it is better that they are not here to endure through the cruelship of humans.

This is what our has become, dying and falling apart around us like crumbled rocks. My life is a little easier then some. I do not live inside and don't have to pay rent or electricity. I don't have to pay for a car or insurance. However, I do have three dogs and they eat a lot. What I do pay for is our phone bill, a storage to keep excess stuff, a bus pass for me to get to and from work, a dog's vet plan, food for all of us, and I always try to save money each paycheck.

When will life get easier? Not a lot easier, but just a little. A simple break would be nice. Just a chance for us to get a little ahead, to not feel like we're struggling to catch up and stay afloat. Is that too much to ask for?
