Fenya by Whiluna Fenya :iconwhiluna:Whiluna 1,505 70
So collect your scars and wear 'em well
Your blood's a good an ink as any
Go scratch your name into the clouds
And pull 'em all down

  Marie-Elisabeth-Lueders-Haus III by iDie
I heard you say you weren't born of our blood
I know we're the crooked kind
But you're crooked too, boy, and it shows

Never Went (198/365)

In the distance 
I never went.
I saw them all go.
Who was I but hiding
in the dark dome.
Caught between a tightrope
of the past and smiling at the present.
The monster knows me best.
I never went and how I wish I did.
I never went and now I wish I had a friend.
Called standing at the door.
I'm afraid to claim it for the tour.
In the distance I never went.
Late to the party I'm here with
the guilt.
If only.  
Embrace (197/365)
Dynamic stranger

from the depths I didn’t know the name.
Don’t be afraid of the close strain.
Dancing across sunlight we touch palms
robbing each other of the silence we wept for.
Heavy weights lift from shoulders like white birds.
Walls falling in the distance.
All we wanted were pieces to bend.
Fit where they needed to be
so we could finally be complete again.
Vexation (196/365)

Avoiding reflections
trying to avoid the same thoughts.
They always seem to find ways.
Crawling under fingernails for
each scratch bring cases of fomo.
The agitation building like a volcano.
Lists go undone and each call to answer
is felt well standing afraid that moving
will drive oneself into a storm of spears.
One needs fear to live.
It makes the blood boil giving birth to sturdy
bones made of steel.
They stood in the calmest of water letting
the skin become translucent.
Ghosts, devoid all pain sacrifice the one
thing we are meant to truly have.
The feeling of being alive.

For You (195/365)

These bitter words hit so softly.
Love tactile on the edge.
Lights reflect where eyes catch shadows.
We knew it by the night.
Fighting torn woven in blame.
For you I’d pull back like the tide.
Give you all the space you need.
I don’t want this to become another
episode of restless what if speeches.
For you I’d do what was needed.
Trace the footsteps to avoid the same
old fractures.
I’d preach the sun be extra bright when
the sky was that empty blue.
We’d cloud watch they rolled in making pictures
to add to our memories.
For you I’d change because it makes me a better man.
For you I’d do anything.
For you.
I'm trying to be on DA more but I get annoyed when I have nothing to contribute. I have nothing to show or post. I have nothing to talk about. So, I'm deciding to do a random favorite 10 of today. Why not? I just want too. I'm going to do it. So, prepare yourself for my random favorite friday 10. My favorite 10 and why. I apologize if the reason why I like something ends up being "because it is awesome." I often feel like comments on DA and anything else ends up being "I love this" but why do you love it? I'm trying to break from that habit. 

I'll post a picture and then write a why I love it and why you should under it just in case you get a little confused on my set up aha. 

Magic Ballet Shoes by Qinni
1. I love the textures of this and the coloring. Her shoe color being gold really goes well with the blue to me. Over all just super wonderful.
I enjoy the specks and the red that goes across her body as if it was a girl being taken by a polaroid film camera. 

Inks by Kuvshinov-Ilya
2. I love her eyes and her hair and her purple. I love the color people. Her lips. See how amazingly awesome my
reasons why I love this are?!? But really I've been a fan of this artist for awhile and everything he puts out I just enjoy
a million times over.

Breath by TwiggyTeeluck
3. I enjoy the bokeh in this photo. It makes me miss summer. I'm not a fan of cold or the winter. I live in Alaska too. I am a contradiction with my home.
This makes me want to go on a walk on a summer trail and just take photos and listen to music. Maybe even go music-less and listen to the quiet. 
A very beautiful yet simple photo that brings a calming to me.

Go backwards ---Preview by fairyladyphotography Gray by fairyladyphotography

4. I decided to pick two photos from fairyladyphotography because these are very wonderful and have a minimalist feel. The rules of third being used along with the use of color. These are wonderful. Not being able to see the faces give it a mysterious feel. 

Last picture by fairyladyphotography
5.Another photo by Fairylandphotography. I just love this. Minimalist and has this very monochromatic feeling. I feel somber. I love it. Just beautiful. 

Chilling touches by Raining-Insanity

6. Simplistic yet beautiful. I love the touch of teal from the double exposure.

Invest in a dragon! by Exileden

7.I like dragons what can I say. This might be a rough sketch but it is amazing and looks like
a fully done piece to me. 

Adam by uglybug

8. This photo. Soon as I saw this It was my favorite. I love the crown he is wearing and for some reason it tickles my eye bone to see the crown in comparison to where the moon is in the background. (If that even makes sense) I should say the rule of thirds is what I mean. I love the positioning of things. I enjoy the metal crown and want one for myself. Makes me think of a prince adventuring. A very non luxurious more casual comfortable prince. 

Secret by siby
9. This has been in my favorites for awhile and this has a DD already but I want to give this some more attention. It is an awesome photo. It makes me feel a bit creeped out but intrigued. I want to go in the room to see what is happening if anything at all. The rule of thirds and where things are positioned. It is a simple yet effective photo. I could write a short horror story about it. This type of photo charges me with inspiration. If you haven't already go fav this photo and look through the many awesome photos Siby posts. 

10.An explosion of color. I could think of so many things that go along with this photo. The small stories you could write or even large ones.
Makes me think of how as kids we are so imaginative but as we get older we don't have that kind of colorful exciting view of the world.

That was my favorite 10. How do I finish this!? I'm not sure. I'm trying to be as I said more on DA. TRYING is the key word. If you have the time go add these to your favorites and enjoy their work. Leave a comment. I'm trying to spread the love as much as I can. If you like something fav it and don't just click away. Say something! I like this idea of spreading good vibes and inspiration. Alright, blah blah I'm going to go now. I'm rambling. Till next time guys!.
