Liquid Fire:
Sorrow melts and reforms
As heat seeps from my skin
Frozen Water:
Reflections of my memories are reborn
As frost settles on me once again
-
The liquidsparks flickered:
And I winced at that one image
A voice suddenly stutters
“I grasped forgiveness after the carnage.”
Restless echoes linger on
Retelling me stories of yesterday
Reminding me of when my courage was withdrawn
And the countless times I accepted those acts of hate
My scars shimmer every dawn
Each one has a wordless tale of mistakes
My eyes recorded the wrongs
As I relive the history I can't escape
Snowflakes descended gracefully:
As a cold-burning tear rolled down
I forced myself to rise after that dire humility
“The life I will only ever live is my own.”

Broken Smile:
A shred of hope still breathes
To defy views of hatred
Mortal Desire:
A brighter future- I will seiz

Aura: The Redemption
Aura: The Redemption
You, the selfless protector who is responsible for my redemption
-
Lending your strong, gentle hands whenever needed
Even if the limits of your mind are exceeded
You wouldn't let anyone be truly defeated
Erasing the definition of: Victim
Handing over strength to the ones that are weakened
Holding onto those whose grips are slowly loosening
You know nothing of greed
It's never for your own benefit
Forever passing on the luxury of relief
And you never have anything left to resent
Your hope is boundless / Your love is timeless
Your sympathy is limitless / Your resolve is endless
You always try your best
Taking on every single burden
Letting no one experience the effects of neglect
The well-being of others is of the greatest importance
You alter fate and destiny
When someone is in their time of need
Creating another path that is towards their dreams
Restoring faith back into humanity
Marching on through the narrowness of society
Changing countless

In The Moonlight
In The Moonlight
Your shimmering eyes reflect-
The layered inspiration that you represent
This bond can grow stronger-
If we allow our souls to become closer
Complexity is mandatory-
When reasons are held closely
Trust shouldn't be a double-edged sword-
If pure truth is rooted within our words
-
I gaze at the universe
Mirrored deep within your eyes
Our surroundings disperse
As our stars collide
Unearthed a rebirth
Reversed countless sighs
A rift in time is immersed
As this memory continuously rewinds
Crossed paths / Fusing hopes
Another chance / Doubts revoked
Lies have no solid place
Within our hearts
But scars have their own space
No matter where we are
The moments patiently await
To lighten up the dark
Shattering fear's embrace
As we present each other with a spark

Your graceful pulse sends bounding waves-
Along the outlines of my human shape
This connection is on another level-

Literature
Aura: The Revolution
Aura:The Revolution
I will never live up to any other expectations
I will only just reach the place in life that's destined
Never again will I be a victim of impossible outcomes
Never again will I allow my self-respect to be disgraced and overcome
-
I am a prisoner no more
Discrimination became the martyr
I had to put an end to this war
I will not be walked on like I had been before
The future of a fearless life is what I now strive for
The source of my resolve has been built into my core
I believe what's right / To live my life
I'll reach for the light / And shine so bright
There's no limit to the sky / This smile never felt so fine
I never thought it'd be mine / So I'll take it as a sign
Time heals all wounds
It may get dark but the sun will rise soon
Hearts will fall sick and spirits will feel blue
But after the storm our pride will become immune

In The Daylight
In The Daylight
A false downfall
An unexpected revival
Sunset to moonset
Shining through darkness
Life...redefined
Death...redesigned
In the valley of promises- I will fear no end
On the brink of weakness- I will ascend
-
Roads of the toughest
Paths of the darkest
I conditioned my flawed limits
So fearful memories won't be paralytic
I had to raise my own spirit
Strength and endurance become so vivid
A chance for change / A moment of fate
A time to make peace / A brief feeling of creed
A sealing of my slate / A silencing of my mistakes
A secret ready to be freed / A chain soon-to-be incomplete
Pain and peace are infinite
Judge the wrath of the wicked
Victims can be vengeful or forgiving
Prolific tears are forever listening
To the cryptic lyrics that layout life's experiences
A few simplistic words can become so endearing

And I start again

On The Wings Of A Butterfly
On The Wings Of A Butterfly
Precious, little cocoon
Recovering from a past life
Shedding an old, tarnished costume
Almost ready to break through to the light
-
A reason was given
For me to hide away
Inside a solace prison
Where I shall stay
Until the ritualistic tradition
Forces me to adapt and change
Biding time! / Healing wounds!
Courage thrives! / Hope looms!
Pain divides! / Becoming immune!
Eyes shine! / Wings bloom!
The reason has proven
That the power of one can truly overcome
The insults and mockery of evolution
Only fuels the being that I strive to become
The solution is an inner, translucent revolution
And then the path to greatness has only just begun
-
It's so hard to let go of your armor
But sometimes it's worth to at least try
To open yourself up and make the departure
And take flight...on the wings...of a butterfly

Rain Of Thunder
Rain Of Thunder
I took the gift of light for granted-
Assuming I would always see
But when my world darkened-
My fears took the best of me
And I would give anything
Just to see a spark or a glow
But my faith was also fading
Withering away like my hope
-
The only sight I had
Was beyond the walls in my mind
But they were just figments from the past
A false savior that I could only hide behind
The shadows were becoming my mask
It was shielding me from living my life
The skies rumbled ominously / Like cries echoing sorrowfully
I felt rain falling endlessly / Like infinite liquid apologies
Reality shed the blackness / The roars fiercely pierced
My eyes ignited the darkness / The heavens suddenly burst
What once was lost
Can also be found
For effects without a cause
Nothing would ever be returned
Our paths will once again cross
For destiny is bound

The lowest of the low-
I have seen
Through

In The Rainfall
In The Rainfall
Pent-up
Beyond repressed
Dripping with blame
Thoughts erupt
Pain expressed
Bound by hate
I felt...
I felt...
I felt your anger
I held...
I held...
I held my pieces together
-
I always wait for the right moment-
To finally break down
I need the pain to flow perfect-
To let it all out
I'm reaching for my tainted core / I won't let you corrupt me anymore
You will not be a part of me / This is not how it's going to be
I always wait for the oncoming storm-
That's the only time
Endure it all until the promised calm-
Just to call it mine
-
Set free
Scars erased
I am myself again
Grief released
Clouds dissipate
You're gone with the rain
I am...
I am...
I am my own protection
I can...
I can...
I can rise above the destruction

Literature
Time Is The Cure
Time Is The Cure
Right hand of destruction
Left hand of creation
It's a never ending cycle
A fatal revival caught in a downward spiral
I tear down reality’s mask
As I build up a truth to give hope a chance
The veiled darkness decays
The guiding light fades
I let go of an old pain
As new tears wash it away
-
The sun always rises
The moon always sets
The rain subsides
The storm is put to rest
Clouds confide / Memories detest
Skies collide / Cries confessed
Light shines / Dark regrets
Pain hides / Peace professed
A new day awaits
An old night forgotten
Tomorrow I shall awake
To cradle what remains unbroken
-
I can't erase my mistakes
But I can't let them define my fate
There's always control
There's always faith to hold
Opposites are locked together
I am the sinner; I am the confessor
With time- comes change
Agony and serenity dawn a n

In The Snowfall
In The Snowfall
I remember it
As if it was just last night
Our surroundings were lit
Illuminated by the surfaces covered in white
The way you smiled
It gave me comfort inside
And my heart seemed to be veiled
Knowing you have become a part of my life
-
Step  by  step
I stopped blinking
As  we  tread
I ceased breathing
Chills  were  sent
Our hands touching
Our  lips  met
Gazing at you is a must
You curiously peered up
As snowflakes danced down towards us
And it dawned on me that I was madly in love
Mesmerizing  my  soul
Spreading a calming warmth
Into  my  core
I held you in my arms
I  felt  whole
Connected our hearts
Alone  no  more
-
Within my eyes
I captured those images
To remember for the rest of our lives
Just to relive something so passionate
It was the perfect setting
I was lost in awe
A memory so desi

Rain Of Color
Rain Of Color
All of the struggles I had to endure
I always desperately held on
It was a day after day ritual
Learning to stay strong
Different advice from the wise
I had to fuse it all together
And make sense of every voice
I couldn't allow my hope to wither

-
Believe in the soul
Embrace the heart
It's what makes you whole
It defines who you really are
Envision the dreams
As if they're real
Remember where you've been
Know that every wound will heal
Every scar tells a story / Every step is towards glory
There's always a chance to triumph / There's always a time for resonance
We always pick ourselves back up / There's no such thing as enough
Born to live free / Alive to feel peace

Hold onto that spark
Even if it's not much
It'll guide you through the dark
It'll help you when you're lost
Compare not to others
Live at your own pace
It always gets better
Faith never really fades
-
I've made it to this place
Where finally I realize
I've journeyed through the pain
And I have

If I could give any kind of advice about life- I would say that: put yourself first when you can.

Never let yourself suffer.

Don't live in the closet, don't live in secret, don't dwell in the dark, and don't hide mental illness from loved ones or work.

Oneself has to accept the fact that those around you will love you for who you are and who you can be. The ones that don't- should never have been there in the first place. A lot of people don't acknowledge a truth for what it really is.

People will embrace you and people will turn their back, that's just the way it is in our lifetime. We cannot try and force reality to be something else by hiding ourselves for "a greater good" because when it really comes down to the bottom line- a lie is a lie, and nothing more.

I lived in the closet, in secret for 10 years, and every fucking single second of that timeline destroyed me. I developed a type of darkness that I don't wish upon any one alive. When you live in the dark for so long, the dark starts living inside of you.

Live only in light, for you have a chance to thrive and strive to become someone you never dreamed to be possible.

Life is possible.
Happiness is obtainable.
Truth is believable.

You. Are. Lovable.

I'm a writer who combines literature with graphic design. You will see the majority of my deviations with cover art. To manipulate and also create, I use Photoshop CS5. I know my method of showcasing my artwork is a touchy one. A lot of people on DA just save something from google and attache it to their work without any permission or consideration of the owner. A lot of viewers assume that I do the same, but I don't, and I hate being put in the same category with those types of deviants. I am merely using everything in my arsenal to upload worthy material for users to read and admire.

I have been graphic designing since 2006, and I have been writing since December 2007. I self-published my own 40 page poetry book in the summer or 2009. It is titled "Living My Life, Behind Hollowed Eyes", and it was surprisingly successful. All copies got taken within two hours. I didn't sell them, I just announced that I had a book printed out, and whoever wants one can have it for free. In my eyes if the books didn't get taken, then it would have been a failure.

Present day- I am working on multiple book projects to do with poetry. My second project got started in 2010, which is titled "Broken Wings Unbound: I'm Falling Down / I'm Soaring Now" has undergone numerous changes to match my ever-evolving style of writing.
My third project which got started in late 2011 is titled- "The Other Side Of The Sky" and it's more concentrated on positive aspects of life, whereas my other projects are mainly dark.
My fourth project that got started in early 2012 is titled "The Prodigy's Suicide" it's a more raw type of poetry. Dealing with a touchy subject and the elements within it. I started the fourth one when I first started going into therapy, so therapy is what this project was birthed from.
My fifth project, which is mainly new, is because of ceasing therapy, it got started in October of 2012. It is titled "Skin of Stone" it is what I like to call my improv style of writing. Writing a piece within one writing session, beginning to end, in one shot.

With the closures of some of my books just looming around the corner, I have started two new book. 2013~

"Trials Of The Mind" deals with heartbreak and soulache. It also deals with thoughts of pure love and passion. This book is dedicated to a special someone who shall remain nameless.

"Divide The Divine" will be more out-of-my-style kind of writing. Lets just say this book will be something even I'm unfamiliar with and unsure about. More information to come on this matter.
