I am an aspiring writer and/ or poet. I live for love and I have my hope in the hearts of my best friends and boyfriend. They are the ones who saved me.
I am currently 19, and I love penguins, red pandas and creepy things.
Send me a note of your tumblr, I'll give it a looksee.
Give a llama, get a llama :3
I have not written a single thing of substance for what feels like the longest time. I've written a couple concepts every few weeks but even those I haven't begun expanding on. That said, I've just started my second year of a BA and I am already loving it. Reading Poetry and Ghosts and the Gothic are sure the be my favourite subjects this semester. 

Also, I spent last weekend at Soundwave, my first proper festival! It was certainly not what I expected and the crowds of people were not enjoyable, but I saw some amazing acts and got to spend time with my closest friends. I just find it was an awesome experience and lifted my spirits a lot just in time to go back to studies.

I seem to be most productive in my writing when I have more important things to do, but seeing as I plan on raising my overall mark in the following year I may write a lot or not at all...
  • Mood: Overwhelmed
  • Listening to: Chevelle
  • Reading: The Monk
  • Watching: Aeon Flux


23 since I last beheld you,
19 since my last catty exchange,
when you wished me well
on the eve of my coming of age,

and I, swamped in bitterness,
felt safe in my hatred of you,
in the awful way I spoke
and reminisced.

And I packed away the photos,
the ticket stub to that comedian
you loved, that you took me to see
as it was all falling apart.

We fucked each other right over,
always missing each other, never meeting,
(not that we ever did,
you were always pulling me out)
and I withdrew completely.
I felt I was safe within.
3 days.
It has been 3 days since I saw you
pull up your hood, head down,
as soon as you saw me.

And I laughed; there is safety
in pretending you're superior,
pretending that you feel nothing
until you're a mess of tears, alone.

I wonder if you felt fear or loathing,
knowing you won't answer me.

On behalf of the group, here's just a little bit of information as to what we're about! :

-- Are you a little lost as to how to get involved in the writing side of DA? Take a look at this helpful guide, How to get started with the Lit Community.  It's got some wonderful advice and has helped many a deviant get their feet wet, so to speak, in the lit world!

-- Before you start submitting, please familiarize yourself with our Submission Rules! This is just to make sure everyone's on the same page as far as contributing work goes, and helps keep the group running smoothly!

Again, thank you so much for joining our club! If you need anything at all, do not be afraid to ask! Wither it be about our club, or even about the going on's in Deviant Art!  

I hope that you enjoy this group and if at any time you have questions, concerns, or ideas please contact me jackofalltrades0097 , or any of the other admin!  We're here to help!
