Literature
One After Another
Violently twisted, tossing and turning,
Spasms and seizures, wracking my body,
Action reaction, chance of success,
Attack and reload, breathe my last breath,
The logic, methodic,
I don't think I'll win,
Frantic, you panic,
No matter how fast you run,
Feeding it slowly, crouching, hidden,
Shadows thicken, keeping hiding, you're stricken,
Numbness and loss, blood pounding in your ears,
Demons and nihtmares, your deepest fears,
Sadistic, horrific, the last hour of light
Twisted, demonic, roaring dementia,
Creeping and skulking, can't hide or fight,
Pathetic, dependent, you're always screaming,
Won't let me be,
Synthetic, genetic, your new condition,
Your twisted mind shuts down,
You make me bleed from your backstabbing,
Make me hate with your attitude,
Lied from the start,
You told me everything but the truth.

Literature
Someplace, somewhere
It was Death. Reeking, rancid Death. Filling the silence of every ashen morning, during which the sun would embark upon another crawl across the horizon, shredded on every inch of its feeble journey by a tangle of clouds, iron in hue. A steel tomb for those below. They congregated on the streets in ever-growing masses, whilst the survivors were buried out of sight. Those who had envied the dead were already amongst them. Those who didn't fought on for themselves, stalking, hunting and dying alone, whilst the slain quietly observed with expressions of horror, frozen in their final moments. Many of the still living (or rather, still-dying) wore similar expressions of terror, blurring the line that defined where life ended and death began.
The place bore no name, nor did the denizens. Identities were burdensome and an invention of civilisation, and here, civilisation was as alien as human kindness. Faith died with the city too. Mosques, synagogues and churches were hideouts at best, indis

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`xerces is a fairly legendary sounding name which is appropriate given that this is a fairly legendary deviant, who in just over 2 short years has contributed close to 20,000 comments on deviations and thousands of other comments elsewhere on this site. In addition to that she has worked hard via her journals and news articles to help educate the community to help keep the galleries clean in addition to her tireless work behind the scenes reporting images that are out of place.
She is indeed an example to follow, and has earned the honor of deviousness for November!
-awarded November 2007

Much too long..

Hello folks!
Yes, it's been far, far too long since I was around in these neck of the woods for more than a fleeting moment!
I've been busying myself with two jobs and a homelife, meaning I have little time to squeeze in those 5-hour long commenting sessions. Unfortunately, I'm a few thousand messages behind, as deviantART is adamant that my commenting is spam! Alas, it means I get to say a lot less on here than I wish to, but c'est la vie.

Anyway, since my last journal entry back in August 2011, my life has rather changed slightly. I now own a house, and not only have I got my full time job as before, I'm also juggling it with my small jewellery business. It's not a huge earner, and I'm far from quitting my day job, but then it's helping me to save for important things like decorating and fixing up my home.

Hello there! I am from the good ole' UK. I am a photographer and jewellery crafter

I've been on deviantART since June 2005. I got a seniorship in October 2007 and a deviousness award in November 2007. I was accepted into the MN@ team in September 2008 until June 2011, so I am a very proud member.

On deviantART, I am a keen photographer and horror SFX artist, as well as a long-time supporter of the other artists around.

In my other time, I work as a geologist, meaning if I throw a rock your way, I'll be able to tell you what rock it is, and how good it is for holding oil. But yeah- it won't be that much of a consolation if it hits you.

I also have my own business in the making, selling jewellery and accessories. At the moment, my work can be found on Etsy at Xerces Art on Etsy, and some items are also currently on sale at Firefly Shiny Shop, Wrexham , North Wales, UK
