On the dresser you will find,
All the notes I leave behind;
Neatly folded, all of them sealed,
The envelopes will not feel real;

Give one to my doctor,
He had to break the news;

Give one to my pastor,
He never told the truth;

Give one to my teacher,
She helped me find my way;

Tell them all I'll see them again someday;

Forget all of my family,
Neglect all of my friends;

The had their chances to help me, long before my end.

Instead they fed their frenzied faces on my innermost pains.
The fire took my family.
The fire killed my friends.
The fire stole all of my clothes.
But it left my bookends.

The fire tore through walls.
The fire shook the house.
The fire engulfed all of the pictures.
But it left my bed.

The men rushed into save me.
The women stood and screamed.
The children ran in terror.
All except for me.

I could see their faces.
I heard the fire roar,
But for reasons I cannot explain,
I calmly locked the door.
It was the smoke, I decided,
That's what shook me so hard;
It seemed to roll right from her lips,
Filling my nose like small glass shards;

I watched this angel kill herself,
Choosing carcinogens over bullets;
She never seemed so human,
But here, in this moment
I could swear she lost her wings,
She had misplaced her halo;
She had fallen by the wayside,
Wondering where to go.

I asked her why this method,
Why not go out with heart?
It seems she didn't mind the afterlife,
Just the dying part.
Religious Hatred by ShuffledYandere
This is a really great piece! The message is clear and evokes a response from those who take the time to look at it. At the same time, everything in the foreground is wonderfully developed, and shows you put time and thought into this work. Your shading is some of the best I've seen. You have clean, thick lines, and excellent thin lines that ad just slight detail. However, for all the beauty that the foreground holds, it seems that the background was a simple afterthought. The stars on the flag to the left lack clarity. The fire is barely recognizable as such. Considering the gorgeous lines you are capable of, I just can't see a reason you would just give up on the background. The worst part is the barbed wire. It's literally scribbles. The background and foreground could have been done by two different artists altogether.
To be frank: You have a great deal of talent for this type of artwork, take pride in that, and nurture it. Leaving the foreground so full and the background so lacking gives the impression you got bored with the piece and that, to me, is disappointing. All the potential of the background, wasted.
Notwithstanding, this is a lovely piece and I look forward to traversing your gallery for more like this. Keep at it!
And all at once the world came crashing down around us.
In that moment we forgot our late-night brawls in pool halls,
we abandoned our prior convictions in light of new ones,
we lost those we once held dear, and here
we stood somewhat empty in our hearts,
somewhat empty in our heads,
grasping tightly to our loved ones,
and filled the empty spaces in our beds.

It was an electrifying exhilaration.
It was an urgent adolescence.
It was the end of all we knew,
and our hearts could feel its presence.

We took turns walking to the town line,
caught off guard when we smashed our faces,
there was something there we couldn't see,
we left blood streaks in some places.

There was a man killed on his tractor,
and a woman drained of blood,
her husband cradled her head,
when her heart forgot to thud.
A sheriff killed by his pacemaker,
a young man killed by his gun.
A man took straight to the power
unaware of his son.

And all at once the world was inside and out.
All at once we were inside.
Some say it has an end,
somewhere way up high,
but when that plane came down,
and silence fell, we stood all together,
feeling sunshine on our faces,
the irony in our weather.

This was just the beginning,
surely there's more to come.
But what can you expect,
when you're trapped  under the dome?

This is Marcgosselin's band Unpredicted Direction!! They're an interesting kind of experimental sound that i've never really heard before. It's absolutely unique! I recommend a listen!!

On the topic of music and even more so on the topic of awesome music, I have a band.

Now some of you are saying to yourselves:
"Eww a band.... another video view whore looking for attention.... SKIP."

Well yes and no. I do enjoy seeing the video view count go up, but I enjoy it more knowing that the people who watch my art also watch my music.

There's no forceable way I can make you press the link button at the bottom of this journal, but you should know that for every view over 28 my band gets, I will in return do something special for you!!! Leave a comment on this page with your username after you've watched one or both of the videos or as a comment on the videos themselves and I will include you in the specialness. Plus that like button doesnt push itself (hint) :)
