"There's a storm you're starting now."

just a 20 year old girl trying to find her way through life one mistake at a time.

i love all types of art. traditional art is my favorite but digital art is a close second.
i'm addicted to watercolors. crocheting is now my favorite pastime.
oh, and poetry. yeah, if you haven't already noticed it's kinda important to me.
there shouldn't be anything else you need to know but feel free to drop me note anytime.
i'm always here to talk.

  • Mood: Tender
  • Listening to: Oh, Ms. Believer - TOP
  • Reading: dA
  • Watching: America's Got Talent
  • Playing: just dance 2015
  • Eating: ~
  • Drinking: lemonade
How To Play: Put your iPod/iTunes/Spotify/Pandora/music player of some kind on shuffle, and then write the first lyric of each song that comes up. Do this for twenty songs, and you'll create a poem!

NO SKIPPING, you must use whatever song pops up no matter how silly, nonsensical, or embarrassing it makes your poem! And you must use the lyrics in the order they pop on on shuffle.

You can structure the stanzas however you want and add punctuation, or the occasional "and" or "but", but no altering of the lyrics themselves is allowed. You can end up with a pretty interesting little poem!

Alright so littleblueraccoon tagged me in this awesome looking game, so let's get to it! 

"she's got a target painted on her back, 
but i will not leave a letter
nothing at all,
my love,
i am the speed of sound.

[Take it aND take IT anD 
    tAkE it AND take iT And
        tA ke It aLL

you fight me and
flat on my lonely face i fell
(i don't love you, i don't need you,
i want a normal life)
this is wrong but i can't help but feel like
this is my life,
it's not what it was before
now that you're gone.
i don't like walking around
this old empty house--
almost heaven;
you had my heart,
and we'll never be worlds apart but
speak of the devil: 
i took a chance, i took a shot
(but holy water can't help you now)
you heard my voice miss believer,
my pretty sleeper. 

[SuNSET aNd BroaDWaY 
    are the streets i li-li-like]

you made up your mind
right before the sound
could move." 

Wow. This went far better than I had hoped. I got a lot of lyrics that went together. Pretty nifty! If anyone can guess some of the songs I used, I will do a feature especially for you! :meow: 

So yeah, I encourage all of you out there to do it. It's really fun and quite the challenge, might help out with writers block for anyone struggling. I am gonna tag some peeps though :evillaugh: That1PersonYouForgot Nullibicity chromeantennae introverted-ghost and Khaimin

he counted my vertebrae
like they were the pieces
of a paint by number,
one by one he adorned
them in burning hues
of reds and pinks
until my whole body
was ablaze;
he let my ribs
smolder under his
delicate brush as
he sculpted my
porcelain figure,
from my dripping shoulders
down to my bruising hips--
every inch of me knew
his calloused fingertips
as he laid layer after layer of
charcoal passions &&
watercolor dreams
on this marble canvas;
"critique me" I whispered
as he etched his name
a thousand times over
into the fine lines
of my left side
critique me
I am the Mona Lisa musings in your ear and you are the masterpiece that I crave.
