Angry Pink Cloud

Angry Pink Cloud

I've got an angry pink cloud Raining angry pink ink Down my unsuspecting college-ruled page. It's full of restless pink confusion Shouting restless pink abuse down On your shooting-down, chewing-frowned rage. It contrasts nicely with his black, A soft tornado spinning back Full of illustrated threats to calm blue seas. It's more indelible than mine, A felt-tip elegant and fine; It has the power to live on like strong old trees. My cloud would like to drift away To join the drawings on his page But the monochrome of ruin won't allow. In all her technicolour glory Cloudy tells a different story Of frustration that is only here

Life... Chocolate

Life... Chocolate

Life is like a box of chocolates... For sale on special at Big W But the girl on the checkouts charges you full price anyway. Life is like a box of chocolates... That melts in the sun on the back seat of the car While you're stuck in traffic on the way home. Life is like a box of chocolates... That gets squashed by the milk When you drop the bag as you're carrying it inside. Life is like a box of chocolates... That's now smeared on the floor Because the cat knocked it over when you got up to answer the phone. Life is like a box of chocolates... That was hidden behind the Weetbix So you missed it and bought another box all for no

Alone

As the wind blows The pain slowly goes. What is it you see When you look at me? Have I changed since the last Few years have passed? Or am I the same? Will I make my mistakes again? They say time heals all wounds and I'm proving this true But they're torn open again when I lay eyes on you. One last time, won't you take my hand? You're the only one who tried to understand. Now I hold on to superficial things I hold onto old memories while new ones time brings. I feel desensitised and kept in the dark And I've some to a realisation so stark; I must salvage my feelings while they remain real Before a time comes when I can no lon

Life Goes On

Life Goes On

She was there But now she's gone. Her life is over But yours goes on. You can't stop time To see her again You have to say Farewell to your friend. You'll meet again One sweet day Reunite in God's presence In a place far away But for now you must go on Though the pain is sharp She still exists, not in physical form But deep inside your heart. Don't forget her.

Didn't Deserve This

Didn't Deserve This

While I was pretending this isn't real The human race forgot how to feel. They now don't care, they are desensitised. How can you escape from this mess? No-one is perfect, that now I'll confess, But I hate that dull look that haunts your eyes… And all I can do is ask 'why?' You weren't always there for me, but still I'll say You didn't deserve this. They took your true soul and reduced it to mist But I want you back… You always used to soothe my soul I thought we'd be together till we're old But they have ground you into nothingness. So as I sit here in this state I wonder if I can escape? Or will I too be made to be emotionle

200 Tears

200 Tears

I see 200 people, I hear 200 sighs, I smile sadly as tears fill 200 pairs of eyes. We will all remember you In our own special way. I just wish the Lord had granted you More time, if just a day. I hear 200 'amen's, See 200 paper cranes Strung up, dangling outside, Blowing in the rain. 200 people file out, 200 people cry, And I can think of 200 ways I'd rather say goodbye. 200 people meet back here And laugh although they're sad. They share 200 stories about you, They knew you and they're glad. 200 people are leaving, They all apologise. I hide my face from all of them So they don't see the tears fill my eyes. 200 peop

Bright And Shiny

Bright and shiny, Big and round, I pick it up from the ground. I stare at it, Mesmerised, Its light reflects into my eyes. Its surface glistens, Its texture smooth, Though caked with dirt from many shoes. I pocket it And proceed to grin. I found a bright and shiny thing!

Newspaper Throne

Newspaper Throne

Across the grounds a girl sits She is sitting on her own. Her hair is dirty, her clothes don't fit And she's always alone. No-one takes much notice, though. They call her strange and queer. Their selfish words hurt her so But she pretends not to hear. She lives an isolated life, Both at home and at school. People think that's just what she's like But avoid her because she's not "cool". Really her life is full of pain Her parents just don't care. Her eyes are dull like a day of rain Because there's no-one with whom to share Her feelings and thoughts, Her wishes and tears, Her triumphs and losses, Her dreams and her fears.

A Third Of A Half :original:

Pieces, fragments, Put them together, A fraction of my soul. Try though I may, They're reduced to dust... No longer can I hold. There is no adhesive No life-bonding glue, There is nothing that can repair, But I am not worried, I don't really mind. Tell me, why don't I care? A paper life It tells who I am. Through words I pave a path... But there must be more, This can only be A third of a half.

Fragile

I don't want to hurt you With what I do not know. I don't want to burden you With what I cannot show. I don't want to worry you With all my groundless fears. I don't want to weary you With unnecessary tears. I don't know what I'm doing, Or how it should be done, But I'll try my best and hope That my hard work is not undone.

Sweet Summer Spring

Sweet Summer Spring

Frosty days and dragon's breath Cold winds and struggling sun. The days are numbered, Winter-esque, For sweet-scent Spring has sprung. Away has blown the icy breeze, Died has the fire's ember. Green leaves adorn the dancing trees As summer they remember. The barren lands of deserts small Drink deep the welcomed rain. The birds preach joy in branches tall, Forgetting Winter's pain. The mournful dams, once empty ground Are now replenished, lush. The air is thick with happy sounds; Broken is Winter's hush. A white-grey sky has now been stained A brilliant shade of blue, A greener reborn landscape framed By brown grass, green a

SoooooooOOOOOooooo...

SoooooooOOOOOooooo...

Hi, Deviants. Hisashiburi desu. What's been happening? People pay me to take pictures of them these days. That's pretty cool. I got to shoot Incubus in February, which was just about the best thing ever. I have my fingers crossed for a photo pass for Mutemath next month, and my first destination wedding in Fiji in June. I got really into SHINee. I put a deposit on a car today. I figured out I'm gluten intolerant. I got a D700 and a 24-70mm f2.8 and an 85mm f1.4 and they're my babies. Chris got a killer job teaching the up-and-coming PTs and massage therapists at the Australian Institute of Fitness, and he's still pretty much the best. And I'

Whooooaaa...

DeviantART still exists, I see... I kind of forgot about it for 6 months or so there. I'll probably continue to forget about it, but I'm on Flickr and Facebook and stuff in case anyone wants to keep in touch. I'm not gonna delete it or anything, just... I don't exactly swing by anymore. Just in case you want to see me around: www.flickr.com/photos/erincontrejour (but I don't really hang there much either, I only use it when I have to) www.myspace.com/erinsmithphotography (which I also don't use heaps, but my business cards direct people there so...) www.facebook.com/erinsmithphotography I have my own website too but it's kind of shite an

Set it on fire!!

Heyo. I got sick of "my life according to Jason Mraz" so I figured, new journal entry. What the hey! So, uni's over. My graduation ceremony is in May. I bought a Nikon D90 in December and it's my baby. I've been doing some photography for ENRG Roller Derby and Chris's band Preston Fight, and I did a little graphic design work for a band called Very Unique Existence too - t-shirts and a MySpace design but it's not up yet. And I got really into Mutemath! I got Twitter, you can hunt me down at @erinsmith87. I just got a smart phone so I tweet a lot like a little egomaniac. Words don't happen for me like they used to, which is a bit sad. Not

Thank you for your interest in :iconthewrittenrevolution: #theWrittenRevolution, we're delighted to have you!

Welcome to the revolution (and sorry for the late reply) :salute:

Please take a look at our news article, thanks!
Hello! This will be really random, but I'm curious. Does "Maika" mean anything? LOL It's my real first name and I never knew what it actually means. I saw your comment at [link] and immediately saw your username.

Where'd you get your username from if I may ask? I hardly ever see "Maika" spelled my way. It's usually Micah or Mika.

Hi Maika! Wow, that's a pretty crazy coincidence. You have an awesome name, by the way.
I stumbled across my username on a Lord of the Rings fansite, they had an elvish name generator and one of the options it gave me for my name (which is Erin) was Maikaduriel. I liked it so I used it, and then shortened it to Maika and here we are :)
I don't know what it means either but I think it's a beautiful name, and I love the way you spell it! It looks gorgeous written down.
Sorry I couldn't be more help on the meaning, Maika.
xoxox
Sorry for the late response.
LOL that sounds so cool. Thank you, I like how my name is spelled too ^^
and don't worry about it =3
Hey Maika ^^ how u been?
