Take a look at my gallery. I specialize in writing and photography. :heart:


i'm part cemetery;
full of cigarette mud and
left-over promises
matchstick lifelines
you read me when you run your fingers over
repousse names
at some lopsided gravestone
i'm ashes of thoughts and blistered whiskey
tongue raw from the swearing and ridgeted sneers -
my lips bear stitches of moon-crater smoke
and you still kissed them.

i'm where you go to abandon your dying
you dig me up
shove death into my pores and I breathe the remnants out
just a hymn of worship to those who never earned it
shipwrecked souls
with the last breath of charcoal still on their chapped lips
i'm here to suck them all
hungry and sea-like
my ocean floor is made of bones
and some of them are mine
I am brick-colored foam
here to swallow your (dead) weight
with the mouth of a gravedigger.

you know
i often wonder if death is haunted by us too
dig me a grave and throw me in it
So, during the past 6 months I've noticed a major change in my writing. I think I went from formal to very modern. Not sure if it's a good change or not, but I know that I enjoy writing much more right now. I'm supposed to be on hiatus but it looks like I can't really stay away from here. Anyways, as always, feedback is very very welcome. 
Tell me again about that time we dug up graves
with a shared cigarette between our teeth
and a gun tucked in my waistband
and you said “one of these days,
one of them will be mine.”
I sunk to the ground,
amongst ribbed bones and melt flesh
and hung myself around the earth
tasted it wet and stale and salty in my hungry sobs
hooked under my tongue and coiled between my teeth
and I trapped the soil between my bloody knuckles
pressed my palms flat in it and felt it crack
and I cried and said “then it better be today”
and you kneeled in front of me
– there was whiskey on your lips
the grey sunshine bitter on the tip of your mouth
and I ran my tongue along it
drank it all up and nursed from it
until all I could taste underneath
the saliva and beer and hollowed smoke
was that last breath you fed me
when I pulled the trigger.
you were always mine to kill
i'm supposed to be on hiatus but i felt like posting this
as always feedback is welcome <3

"There are four questions of value in life: What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love." ~Johnny Depp

For as long as I can remember, writing has been my release. A way to escape reality and emerge myself in a world where I can control everything; in a world which I can shape according to my will and ignore the hardships and the vanity real life brings. Some say being a writer is the solution of the coward - one that refuses to look life in the eye when it strikes him and strike back. I don't believe that. True, writers do not fight life. They embrace it. And if this, too, marks me as a coward, then so be it.

What do I like? I am a huge fan of fantasy, Dragons, Middle Ages, adventure, photography, night, rain, sketching, reading, writing. I am currently writing a book on my own, so I have little time to write stuff for dA, but please stay tuned.
Want to know me better? Don't be afraid to send me a note, I am a very friendly person, even though my bio may seem a little bit serious and grim. xD

In case you are wondering about my fandoms, check out my tumblr or take a look at these stamps to see the things I mostly fangirl about:

Hey, everyone! Looks like 2015 has finally settled and I'm realizing that I never really wished all of you (or the ones that read my journal *cough* nobody * cough) a Happy New Year. So, for what it's worth, may the new year bring you happiness, health, success and basically all sorts of good things 2014 never did.

Basically, the last couple of years for me haven't been good, so I don't have much faith in 2015. Low expectations save you the pain, right? :P Anyways, that's not the point of this journal. The point is that - as some of you might have noticed - I'm not on here that much anymore. The thing is, my interests changed a lot during the last year and so did my writing style. I just feel like deviantART isn't the place for me anymore, or I don't know if it has ever been. I'm sort of having a talent crisis; I feel like my talent isn't adequate enough to be on this site, and the best stuff I've ever written I will never submit for my own reasons. Plus, my studies at the university take up most of my time. So I'm taking a break - which will probably be permanent. 

That's not to say that I will no longer log in on here. I will visit this site from time to time, see how many good people I met on here are doing, maybe leave a comment or two, fave a couple of things. Maybe even submit a work of my own if I don't feel it's utterly worthless, if I feel it might be a tiny bit good enough for this site full of talented people. But that won't be too often. 

I want to thank everyone who stuck with me through my journey on here. You're all amazing people, with amazing talent and full of skill. You've all been a huge support to me and have helped me get better and realize where I'm heading to with my writing. I'm proud to call all of you a big part of my life. So, thank you. I wish you all only the best.

Okay, mushy stuff over ya big dorks. Keep on rockin'.

Here's to a good year,

  • Mood: Thanks
  • Listening to: Hotel California - Eagles
  • Reading: fanfiction probably
  • Watching: supernatural + how i met your mother

Happy Birthday, Dora! Hope you have a good birthday, hun! And I hope that things settle down in Greece. :hug: stay strong - you really are an awesome writer, y'know... and I hope that you continue to persevere in your dream.

Thank you so much, Shehroze! It means a lot to me, I really appreciate it :) I'm sorry I haven't kept in touch, I'm not online as much as I used to. Hope you're doing alright! 
shehrozeameen Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
:) Anytime hun. 

I'm awesome! :dummy: I'm in Germany, studying MPH. One of my poems got published ("The Sorrow of the Leaves" in Checkmate Literary Magazine), and I even hosted my first contest here on dA. And it has gone well, all things considered.

I know. I hope that you and your family are managing to sustain yourselves, what with the Greek economic disaster which took the EU by storm. :( Stay strong.

Wow, that's amazing! I'm so happy that so many good things are happening for you! Keep it up, you'll go places! We're doing fine for now. We're okay. Thank you for asking. :)

Thank you so so much! You absolutely don't have to, though :) I'm sorry I haven't kept in touch, I kinda stopped using deviantART and moved to other social media. How are you? :) I'll try to take a look at your works once I finish studying for my exams tonight! ^^
