I was like you by PorcelainPoet I was like you by PorcelainPoet
I wont let you fall apart

Well find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide
Ill build a wall and we can keep them on the other side
But they keep waiting
And picking

Its something I have to do
I was there, too
Before everything else
I was like you

-NIN


Don't leave the children on their own, no, no
Bring the boys back home

Oh and don't read into this more than you should.
That would be a waste of time..
We needed an excuse to make fake blood.
Isn't that anticlimactic?

P.S. This is not suppose to be pro-military.... nor is it really suppose to be against the military. Just wanted to say that so I didn't mislead anyone. I'm anti-war, pro-peace. Oh and thanks everyone for liking this one and for the faves/comments.

I have no idea what I used for this to tell you the truth.
But I use a lot of generic drugstore makeup and I have a couple of eye shadow pallets I bought online.
BH Cosmetics is a great brand: [link]

This reminds me of one of my favourite poems - [link] - good work. Very powerful, even though you don't want people to apply meaning to it that wasn't there when you created it :) I think that is the purpose of art, allowing the viewer to find their own meaning from it without the direction of the artist. Again, very good work.

she shines in a world full of ugliness...
she matters when everything is meaningless.

love the song and the photo suits it well. very beautiful. the lighting around the eyes and the contrasting colors make this picture stand out. i cant stop admiring the dulled skin tone.

I like the perspective of this very much, which I think that is because of the undamaged eye. The color of it is so clear which is a nice contrast with the rest of the piece.

Very nice :]
