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


You were the boy
who run with the lions
the one with the fire in his veins
and the roar of a thousand
behind him

the sun envied you
because you burned hotter
than he ever did

there was no use for pockets
not when you could hold all your possessions
in one hand
in one soul
– your gun and your pain –
who needs home anyway
when the road ahead is made for you to
walk it

you met the dirt like
an old friend
greeted the darkness as if it knew you
– and, oh, how it did –
and when you sang
graves filled with ash
and the sky died unlamented
and you walked on
with an old cassette tape
and soles of shoes
melting into colors of fear behind you
and there’s a scar somewhere
here and there and here
but, boy, oh boy,
where is your heart?

Did it not fit in your hand
or was it too heavy for you to carry
or did the road wash it away?

If there’s a time to go back that road,
to find it,
this is it, this is it.

When you do find it,
when it is too heavy for you to carry,
then this time,
drop your gun instead.

I was supposed to post something else to wish you guys a Happy New Year, like a poem or some prose or something but I was too lazy so I'm posting this instead. I'm so sorry for not being on here as much as I've used to and for not keeping in touch with you guys. DeviantART is just not for me anymore. But for what it's worth, I'm happy that I met a lot of wonderful people here. To all of you, I wish you a Happy New Year, full of joy and love. May 2015 bring you what 2014 didn't and may it make all of your dreams come true. Thanks for being my friends <3
You see him but you don't know him,
the boy with the knife in his backpocket
and the scars on his knuckles.
He is a stray shooting star,
he hides words under his tongue
and when he looks at you
his eyes are just like the sea before a storm.
He's a hurricane.
Steps on autumn leaves
and leaves ash behind.
He hums Led Zeppelin under his breath
and on his chest he has carved his own
You don't know him,
but you see him now
scrapping the pavement with his knees
and you remember that monsters
don't always hide under beds.
you never told me
that your hands have carved songs
into the trees
or that your eyes darken a bit
every time a star dies
you never told me that
you have galaxies running in your veins
and that when you scream into the night
it's because they explode
you only told me that
even though you have
the cosmos
inside you
all you want is
my black holes
all you want
Another poem written at 4 a.m or so. Is this becoming a habit? Who knows?
Please comment?

"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! It's actually a very warm evening here in Greece and what better way to spend warm evenings than dA, right? Well, as you probably guessed from the title, I decided to do another feature! But before that, let me bore you with an update about myself. 

So, school's over for me and university comes next. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited. I guess things are getting kinda serious with my life, you know? The future stares at me, waiting for me to make decisions, but it's another part of life so I'm willing to go explore it when the time comes. For now, I spend time going out with my buddies and obsessing over fictional characters of TV shows, movies and books. Life is... good. Also, I'm back at writing! After a long time of absense, I finally have time to write as much as my heart desires! A new idea for a book is slowly taking shape and I'm really excited to see how it turns out. Also, I wrote a couple of pieces for dA. Here is the one I'm most proud of, in case anyone would like to check it out (feedback is always welcome and means a lot, so thanks in advance if you decide to leave me some):

When We Dead Sing.Whenever I think of Death, I picture a fleshless form, buried inside a hovering and torn black cloak; a face with gaunt features and sunken eye sockets, empty of emotion and meat, long, knuckled fingers cradling skulls like infants, while the dead behind him sing. And then I remember it’s the twenty-first century and that he might come as a handsome man wearing a black suit, driving a black, classic shiny Chevy Bel Air and drinking Dalmore whiskey from crystal-made glasses, the kind that ring when you snap them with your finger.
I never pictured him like this.
There’s only one thing I like about this world, and that’s the sky. The feeling of soaring above anything that holds you down, of touching the endless blue hue with wings that are not even your own, of effortlessly gliding—hanging, lingering—between two worlds, one so different than the other. The way you can see how small you are: a speck drowning in all the vastness; the way you can realize how suf

Now, without further delay, let's proceed to the feature!

     SurrenderThere are words I don't recognize
on the walls of my contentment.
I'm not sure what language they're in
or who wrote them, but I do know
that they say something about surrender.
I've given up more times
than I've given anything else.
That’s how you found me. Curled up,
knees to my chest, trembling. And you
in your good nature mistook my weakness
for prayer.
   Haunt me my misery, my loveI feel like crying myself to sleep,
and hope I'd wake up
to a new world where you don't exist.
Where streets don't have a past
songs have no special meaning
and people no longer ask about us.
Or maybe I'd bang my head against a wall,
to slip into a blissful amnesia 
and no longer recall your voice.
I wish for a seasonless Earth
without the burning heat of July
nor the rainy days of December.
Just an eternal night, with endless snow
where the fog on the cold windows
is not tainted with the letters of your name.
I wish to take my love back,
pour it into glasses of wine
and drink to the melodies of madness
we joyfully chanted to hollow wind.
I pray and plead for a dreamless snooze, 
away from the fires your lips hold
and the sighs of my old bed
when it feels the lack of your warmth.
Maybe I'll pull the covers over myself and curl,
try to convince myself I don't feel pain
and hope to forget you, run away,
and slowly cry myself to sleep
into a land no longer haunted with our
   SKYRIMHave you heard the legend of the Dragonborn?
or seen his Army as it blows his battle horn?
A collector of the relic masks
Accomplisher of the Daedric tasks
A caster of spells and reader of Tolms
A God among men, shoots fire from palms
The bounty on his head
would make you wish you were dead
A house in every kingdom
And every bar he'd drink rum
But who wouldn't if you killed Aldvin?
the Dragon of the worst sin
To him its just another day in Skyrim
so fill his cup up to the rim.

So, that's all folks! Give those deviations the love they deserve! Have a nice summer!

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! ^^

Dora Markousi, Happy Birthday. Bless you for being a part of my life and being an integral part of my dA experience. Your words have always inspired me to pursue my hobby of writing and believing in me as a writer. Your a gem, honestly you are. You have come a long way in life and now, as a university student, as someone who is pursuing a professional degree, you are going to take your first step into the real world.

And it is a matter of pride - I am genuinely proud of you for reaching this far. And I pray that you reach far in life. God bless you, through thick and thin. Becaude you really are the lady of silver - The almighty blessed you with a heart of gold and a mind blessed with a healthy imagination (even in its dark moments). Stay blessed.
