Bait and SwitchBougainvillea blooms

this sorrowful life.

Life on DisplayShe had grown up in a world
of coupon clippings, muffled ears
and tip toeing around broken glass.
Bruised feelings towards the world
that looked so narrow and thin;
Felt like a resolutely locked door.
Always grasping for the heavens
with a desire and ferocity
of piercing iron claws.
Dominating the skies with all the
bulk and majesty of a bird of prey.
Boxed in at one corner of a city;
dusty and forgotten.
Yet, always guaranteed to be visible
at night. Raging quietly through
the darkness like the last bit of embers
on the end of her stamped cigarette butt.
Artsy and upscale enclaves beckoned her.
Hidden oases of roasting coffee, hip music
and fresh-cut flowers. So unlike the barren
desert of chain convenience stores and dreary
apartment blocks she called home.
Beautiful young women
clink marble china together, bobbling
around each other like planets bobbling
around the sun; All struggling for recognition
and permanence. All the while, defiantly staring
into the face of the force that ga
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.

Thank you Stamp. by itsreality

Spotlights on... #16What's up people?
It's cool to see that despite summer, people on this website are still as active as usual ahah. Oh and btw my DA 1 year anniversary is coming veeery soon (on August the 2nd). :D Nostalgia nostalgia.
I changed a little bit the way I'm doing these features, now I'll also be featuring deviants that are worth your attention, because of their skills/spirit/kindness/etc.
Hope you'll enjoy!
Plum facts #9 : I studied classical literature and how to analyse prose/poetry with the use of literary and lyric tools. That's why I think I might be very sensitive of the author's style, which defines IMO the quality and the richness of the text. 
Have you studied any classical authors or even modern literature?   
I am a dummy! DEVIANTS AND DEVIATIONS I am a dummy!

Spotlights on... #15Wow already #15. I still remember the feeling I had when I posted my first features articles: I really wanted to share my favourite art with all my friends, supporters and watchers. I received several compliments and praise for my features articles therefore I definitely can't stop doing them. :) (Smile)
I'm aware I might miss some unknown artists that need more exposure, and I'm sorry for that. I'm doing what I can to please all of you, and please me as well. 
I hope all of you have a great week so far. Summer definitely came back, and mosquitos too. Crying  Feel free to note me if you ever wanna talk, about anything. I'd love to share my stupid stories with you. Anyway enjoy this 15th wave of features. Make art, not war. 
See you soon! Hi!
Plum facts #8 : I've found a new hobby, watercolour. I just came across some amazing pieces of

The Ink Stained Quill Vol. IIIHello everyone! It's Kelsy, aka SpriteBlayde here. Welcome to the third volume of The Ink Stained Quill. This series focuses on the amazing writers we have here on deviantART. Each installment will feature a deviant who you may, or may not know, who is willing to answer some of my questions! Whether you are a long time writer, or a newbie, there is something for everyone in the series who is looking to improve their craft or for some light reading.
Today we have a guest who is insanely awesome. Her name is Nadia, but you may know her as Medoriko. I've been her watcher for long enough to know that Nadia puts out a variety of pieces. Her writing is truly incredible, she's one of the gifted writers who only has to write a couple of words to hit you head on with emotion. I highly recommend you browse her gallery, you won't be disappointed. :heart:

Before we start, is there anything you would like to
Random Feature Time!As the title says, it's a random feature! Before I begin, I would like to mention that I am still open to collaborations. If you're interested, please note me or comment here:
Now for the features! I will feature a couple of my personal favorite pieces from each person. :)
1. chromeantennae Not that he needs my help, but he's my best friend and an incredible writer. His style is so versatile and his subject matters cover a broad range. Please, go check out his stuff!

2. Medoriko I love this lady's writing! She has one of those styles of writing that make even the simplest of messages complex and meaningful. Please, go show her some love. :)

3. WeirdAndLovely She is an amazin

A Feature full of LOVE Let's start with some words that I adore.

HaikuWriMo. LOVE
I am participating in HaikuWriMo this year and it has been so much fun!  Here are some wonderful Haikus!

ITU Feature 19 - June 28, 2013 :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: Inspire The Uninspired Fortnightly Feature :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletblue: :bulletblue:
Hello, members and visitors of InspireTheUninspired! Welcome to our fortnightly feature, where we present four fantastic deviations from our gallery. This week I'll be sharing two deviations from both the Non-Fiction folder and the Poetry - Free Verse folder along with two other deviations from the deviant's gallery.

Nightmares by SMAdams tells the story of a woman fighting her subconscious while she is plagued by nightmares. The descriptive imagery perfectly captures the feeling of being trapped and violated by our nightmares, something that many people are well acquainted with. It is the author's vast knowledge of language and prose writing that really brings this feeling to life.
NaPoWriMo Feature #4Sooo hi. Yes, I know it's been almost two whole months since NaPo ended, but I am lazy and irresponsible so there. Here is the final installment of the NaPo features, with, once again, three of my favorite NaPo poems from all of the winners. Enjoy!

Literature Roadtrip: Day 06The beautiful pieces of literature featured here today are written by extremely talented deviants. As you explore their galleries you will be amazed and captivated. I urge all of you to read a few of the pieces showcased, give them some comments and add them to your favourites. I know that these deviants would greatly appreciate it.
I also suggest that the deviants here today, take some time and look at two another pieces here. You may find a deviant you have never come across before.

Fantastic Feature Tuesday #45Please this news article so it will reach a larger audience!
This is a weekly feature of amazing literature that I come by during my
travels across deviantART. This is only a small sample of a vast amount
of wonderful pieces of literature written by absolutely fantastic
writers. Each deviation was carefully selected from a writer's gallery
based on structure, impact and word usage. I will never feature the
same person twice (though this gets harder to keep track of
now that we can change usernames), so check out these lovely writers now while you can!

~Hell Raiser~

Which Poem demonstrates the Poetry prompt best? (For TWM members, please) 

3 deviants said The Queen and the WandererWhat good is a day?
When all its hardship and all its light;
Has to fade away,
And end in a night.
A world painted in colors of unceasing lives;
Of incessant pace, of relentless sights.
And the ever-changing shades of a familiar world,
All cease to dwell.
As the angels light the butterflies aflame,
And the heavens paint the gloom of the Gods.
I, Queen of the Other Worlds,
Question thee, Oh Wanderer of Life.
Why fight the battles of a mythical dream?
Why seek repose beyond these refulgent skies?
Cause beyond these lights only darkness shall prevail.
Oh Wanderer of Life,
What good is a day,
When all of it has to end in a night?
Oh mighty Queen of the Other Worlds,
I flow through these days like a crinkling stream.
Bathed in the hues of a mortal sky.
Battling the path, dissolving its pain;
An ever changing form seeking absolution.
Then comes the dark,
Lingering through the tinted skies,
As light evades the somnolence of a languid day.
Deprived of sleep I stay awake.
Deprived of drea
2 deviants said Sweet SorrowsWhat good is a day
with vastly massacred masses,
each body mingling beneath
blood flies and maggots?
Ten times ten thousand
tears trickle in streams
sewing together the seams
with sick liquid screams.
Amidst the angst and anguish
ambles The Lone Stalker,
The Avenger, The Acolyte
of Assassins, and Mist Walker.
His pearled pupils
and lips part with pleasure.
"So little glory and gore
garnered from this gesture."
This day he revels in retribution
reaving all of its tomorrows.
He forgives the slain and the slaughtered,
savoring such sweet sorrows.
2 deviants said What good is a day...What good is a day
In which you are the same
At the end
As you were when the day began?
That is called wasted time
Where you pass through without reason or rhyme
No anger, or sadness
But also lacking happiness
And when the night draws close
You pull up the covers to the tip of your nose
You’re too tired to think about the day
Nothing memorable happened anyway
Every second is a gift
Yet still we waste them as though they’re guaranteed
And look to tomorrow as a definite
Instead of only a possibility
So I shall reiterate
What good is a day
In which nothing changes
And you stay exactly the same?
1 deviant said What Good Is a Day?What good is a day
when gods deign to play
dice with our hours and minutes?
Now the sand trickles softly
Death, like a lover, clasps at our waists,
grasps us with his cold arms. We bend to his charms.
Eternity calls, as dusk softly falls.
We must lose our fight, and yield to the night.
So tell me: What good is a day?

All the Food, a few Thanks you's, and an Update

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 31, 2014, 9:02 PM
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: Of Mice and Men

So the food truck party was AWESOME. I don't think anyone was expecting such a big turnout because it started at 4...and some trucks were sold out of food before 6 lol My roomie and I got there at 6:30. We managed to get a Smokie with Cheese from our favorite hot dog vendor AND a Jamaican Jerk Chicken Sandwhich :love: It was lovely. I wish I could have been able to tried other food trucks but the lines were obnoxious :lol: With that kind of turnout hopefully they'll do this again sometime before the summer is out so I can get there EARLY :giggle: But it was a beautiful day out, so it was a nice outing.

OH. OH. So, we went to the ONLY Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in the province, which happens to be in Halifax. Compare that to Ontario that has about does BC ;_; Even freaking Saskatchewan has 4. That aside, ti was delicious. I had a waffle bowl with these frozen yogurt flavors: orange vanilla, tart, blackberry greek yogurt. I added some malt balls and granola. It was soooo good. I'm so going there again :eager: 

I want to say Thank you to AlphaManifest for giving me my FIRST dA Compliment :love: I've been seeing others with them...and giving some anonymously :paranoid: I wasn't ever expecting to GET one :eager: I'm just happy with my one :love: So thank you dear. It made me smile ear to ear.

Also, thanks to those who have donated to my gofundme. And thank you to those who could not but passed the word along. Aaaaand thanks to those who just chatted with me, it brought me back down to a calm state of mine. I panic easily. 

On a side note, I did a lot of calling and whatnot and got signed up for an employment orientation session at the YMCA here in Halifax. At the end of the session I will be assigned a caseworker who will work with me to find employment. They probably know more than I do and would know the best way to handle my situation as they've done this for a living :lol: So, I'm a bit optimistic about THAT at least. 

Anyway, that's all for now. :heart:
