About to order my first Copics! I'm ordering the Sketch EX-6 set, the Ciao Skin set and the individual Sketch N06 (neutral grey) marker. (I got $70 for my birthday and $20 for Christmas. Found the sets online for the grand total of $95.08. Mom is covering the extra $5 and N06.) I'm also assuming that she will get me some marker paper. I can't wait to give them a go. Man I need a job.
Never shall I forget the day in the meadow.
Never shall I forget the clouds dancing above us.
Never shall I forget the grass glowing in the sunlight, the trees singing in the wind.
Never shall I forget the way her arms enveloped me, shielding me from the world.
Never shall I forget the completeness that consumed me as we curled up together.
Never shall I forget how, in that moment, time was silenced.
Never shall I forget that first blissful taste of freedom.
Never.
Never Shall I Forget
So this was for a school assignment. It was to copy Elie Wiesel's style in the poem Never Shall I Forget, which can be found on page 30 something in his book entitled Night. I like how it turned out so don't go hating on me for 'copying' him because I didn't.

Parting ways with past love, easy for none, but harder for some

Time, it just takes time, they say, if only they knew how long time can take

Smiles aren't real, not anymore, so solitude is key to keeping your sanity

Don't ever let go no matter how much you're tempted or you'll never remember that the y in Peanut Butter and Jelly stands for yesterday

---

These words on this page
will never fully describe
what PTSD means to anybody except me
for every word has a thousand meanings
and everyone hurts a different way

so just because I wasn't in a war of any sort
doesn't mean you hurt any more

because nothing is an easy fix
but some things are here to stay
no matter what others have seen or have to say.

Someday, somebody will understand
that when your dad suddenly collapses
and the ambulance arrives too late,
when they put him in a body bag
and carry him away,

that even though you know what happened
you're sure he'll be alright
so you go next door
while your dad rides to the morgue,
you succumb to your imagination
as you play away the day,

and even when you're told
what you already know
and you seem to brave it with a smile
that you're not as okay as you look.  

When four years later you're still in denial
as though it just happened
when everyone else reached acceptance long ago,
when you put yourself in a mental hospital for suicidal thoughts,
they tell a fifteen year old that she has PTSD
and then they send her home



A/N: Okay, that was unexpected. That whole second bit was supposed to be a disclaimer but I guess I was still thinking in poetry so it ended up being another poem. Oops. So, some backround here. The bottom poem is actually about my story, spoiler alert. Everything in it is true. Also, the Peanut Butter and Jelly thing at end is a reference to one of my dad's poems. It's my favorite. He was an interesting and creative soul, even though he wasn't always the best of people. He invented a way to hide the silly grates, so in downtown Dayton, they're all hiding under the reddish things for wheelchairs on street corners. He was going to patent it so he could make money for my college fund. He was going to start a non-profit organization devoted to helping young inventors design, build, and patent their inventions. He even copyrighted the name: Imagination Unlimited. He was writing poems all the time because he wanted to write a book of poetry. He built a bridge, he built the stations for the new green buses, he repaved Main Street, he added bicycle lanes downtown, he helped set up the rentable bikes and so much more and nobody but our family and the construction workers had any idea who he was or what he had done for them because he didn't want praise, he only wanted to make Dayton a better and happier place to live and he most certainly accomplished his goal. On Saturday, July ninth 2011, Georg E. Wood Jr. died of a heart attack.

Oops, trailed off again. Sorry about that. Anyways, I was going to say that it's true that the first bit doesn't sum up PTSD at all, in fact, I might get a lot of hate for it. I'm sorry if I offend anybody but I will not tolerate meaness on this. If I see it, I report it because it's not cool to hate on depressing shit, no matter how inaccurate you might think it is. It's not about accuracy, it's about expression.
The Shadow Man by darkangel843
The Shadow Man
I did this on my Kindle, so leave me alone about the soft edges. I was playing The Triangle Game (an imagination game) with Amber and I saw the Shadow Man in the Triangle Dimension. Amber was curious so I threw a quick doodle together and decided to improve upon it. This is the result.

Collaboration Sneak Peak
Amber and I are doing a collab. So far, I've done this (and also the rest of the page that I didn't show). Amber is coloring it and we will both be posting it when it's complete.

I got a nasty virus yesterday, but I'm better now. Other than that, nothing much here either.
