Lessons
Every scar tells a story
Every story has something to teach
By erasing your scars
You erase these little lessons
Life has taught you
Don't be afraid
Don't be ashamed
For they don't make you ugly
They make you wise instead

Two Great Days by sevvysgirl Two Great Days :iconsevvysgirl:sevvysgirl 2 4
Literature
Mirage
No longer inclined to rewrite the story
altered version was oh so gory
buttoned up with such finality
everlasting betrayal sort of comforting
like a slap the different view
forced the way
as the light fell on and cracked through
laughing at regret as a myth
cutting veils with the scythe...
Where... what... is this?
Take it all back, throw earth over it
I could live with horror
but this... oasis
I’m listless
this is evil bliss

Literature
Enough
I wish I knew what pieces of me you hated
Or maybe it was because I’m missing so many
I’m sorry I wasn’t enough to be kept near
I’m trying to be more
I’m trying to be enough
Because
I don’t even feel enough for me
Some days I know what pieces of me you hated
It was all of me
I was easy to forget wasn’t I?
I’m trying to be remembered
I’m trying not to forget
Because
I wish I could write the words cracking the walls
Of my heart
Grasp the river of tears I shed
Bottle the screams that escaped
I can’t express myself
Because
I hold the pen and paper
But you were my ink
My voice
Without you I shred the paper in desperation
You left me alone with my thoughts
Left me with my broken pieces
And a note saying
I was nothing
Because
My bones are dry now
My heart shrunk and wrinkled
My scars grew whiter
I threw away my pen and paper
And it killed me more than your absence
Because
I guess I invested too much
And you took it all with you

Literature
six pieces of the sun
i.
the pavement is cracked
a metaphor for chipped
coffee-stained teeth
and you’ll ask for any
distraction to shield yourself
from the scrutiny
ii.
even in this breaking
this entering
this sharpening of sound
you discover elements of self
that no periodic table
could ever chart
iii.
the doves speak gossip
ask you what you think
of the bruised apples
society deems you invalid
but you have never been
so present, so aware
iv.
within the bustle of
the shape-shifting station
you travel back to yourself
and find the sense of calm
you’d been chasing for ages
but could not grasp
v.
pour light into the wound
pour yourself out
onto the sidewalk
let them never think
you shied away from
the hard things
vi.
the world couldn’t ask
for a better version
of you, or you it
your brightest self
steps before the window
and your mouth lifts

Just an invisible man, writing his thoughts and fighting a battle in vain aganist life itself. Lost friends, broken hearts, bullying, a (relatively) messed up family life and overall anti-social tendencies led me to that. And love is a strange concept to me... At least DeviantArt is both an escape and a way to connect to others. Where would I be without it?...

Anyway, enjoy my poems, pictures and all the other stuff. I must warn you, most of my poetry tends to be quite dark and sometimes depressing. I do some photography too.

One more thing: there's no need to thank me for every fave, llama or whatever, OK?

Oh, and I don't mind poetry requests. For free. Come on, inspire me :)

I just cut off all ties I had with a good friend of mine on impulse. Really, all ties. Deleted, just like that. Without even waiting for a reaction. Why? Because I couldn't take it anymore. That relationship was but a chore without any pleasure. And I don't even feel bad about that. I realized I don't care for that person anymore. A person not long ago I held dear. Someone very close and special to me, someone I genuinely cared about with all my heart and soul.
Am I a bad person? Am I a cold heartless mess? What have I done and why do I care so little about it?

Like the title says, I'm a disgrace...

I did read that about your family and troubles and I can really relate. Dreaming, writing and arting is, what kept and keeps me alive through all this.
Just wanted to say "Hi" and tell you you're not alone, I guess.

Looks like we're not as alone as we sometimes think. And art in general is a pretty great way to express ourselves and let out what's in our minds. And 'hi' to you as well.
