The Ocean

Crimson waves
Carmine froth
Pools of tinted color.
Fractured sunlight
shimmering transcendent,
small pockets of ethereal fire.
The forgotten is found
the known is forgotten,
everything is worn down to nothing.
Perpetual rushes of the tide,
abating hush as it reseeds.
Acrid sents of hate and fear
born away into the sea.

Slips of silver,
wriggle in swarms of shattered glass.
Rippling beneath the surface
like dissolving trails of fluttering ribbons.
Caressing waves
bathe the parched sand
of the ocean.

5 Ways to Deal With Stupid People

We all know them. We've all seen them. No matter where we go, its like they infest every breathing organism around us. Oh- I can't elaborate on this enough, stupid people pretty much dominate the world like a plaque of Justin-Beberized zombies.

 So what do we do? Our society is drowning in the astronomically large pools of idiot brain cells circling around. Constantly we are assaulted with herds of unintelligent life forms. All wanting to smother us in a fluffy ocean of sparkly pink quicksand. How much longer can we, the few with actual brains, survive amongst such horrifying odds? How much longer can we put up with the never ending floods of stupidity rising like tidal waves against us?

Well, I'm here to help you out with a guide on how to survive in a world of stupid people.

How to deal-1 Eradicate vermin

  This world would be so much more peaceful if we all just had a huge game of call of duty/kill the idiots with vaporizing laser explosives. Just imagine that one person, who without fail always manages to annoy you in the most excruciating ways. Every time they open their mouth its like you want to call a halt to the proceedings and just stare at them in complete bewilderment. Like, "how could you be this stupid?" Just imagine calmly walking up to them and pressing the blessed button that would silence them forever in a poof of dancing atoms. It would be marvelous, we should plan this.

How to deal-1 Accept that some people aren't just that intelligent

   Honestly, your going to meet a lot of people who just can't keep up with you. When I say stupid, I don't actually mean in a literal sense. I mean like people that do things like this for example:


 Just accept that everywhere in the world, there are people who can't think about things before they do them. Don't hate them, just accept that they are who they are and move past it. Don't get angry about the state of their mental capacity, just concern yourself with the weather... or your fingers.. and try not to listen to the empty braincells being thrown around.

How to deal-2 Start wars when stupid people mess with your life

If someone's stupid, then just shout it to their face! I mean, why try to be kind and empathetic when they can't even add one plus two because they were too lazy to do their homework in class. I mean, don't they know that when someone decides not to do their assignments, EVERYONE pays for it? Screaming your feelings into their face is a great way to mutually come to an understanding about the situation. Don't even try to understand what's wrong with them, because its obviously pretty big.

How to deal-2 Be calm and address the person with respect

 People respond to respect, who doesn't? If you honestly ask them whats going on with the intent to actually listen, then they in turn may be more understanding to your feelings on the matter of their uncompleted homework. Don't try and take it out on them, try and keep your cool and stay calm. If they do well in something, let them know! Try and inspire them to keep on trying. When they receive compliments on what they do well, they will be more inclined to try harder in it.

How to deal-3 Run over opposing political supporters with your car

   Though you may spend the next-oh, rest of your life in jail- it would be worth it to crush those nasty opposing supports just to see their faces of shock!

How to deal 3- Don't talk about politics if you don't want to hear another persons opinion

Yes, that may solve our problems! Why try and convince people to join your view point, when you know the only thing they are going to try and do is convert you to theirs. See how this isn't going to end up anywhere but a broken nose and cut off friendship?

How to deal 4- Find those freakishly stupid you-tube commenters -we all know which ones- and end them. 

   I mean seriously, you only have to say three things. God. Politics. Call of duty is better than Halo. Now you have yourself a full scale you-tube swearing fest. Do people like this actually exist? Not only is it constrained to just you-tube, anyone whose anyone needs to pick a fight with everyone on the internet. Just start a list of profanities and your sure to bring everyone around to your way of thinking! "Start idiotic you-tube fights", Its just one of the things you agreed to in the terms and agreements.

How to deal 4- Turn your you-tube comments off

If you can't see them, you can remain in the ignorant bliss that people aren't as stupid as they really are! It works wonders for your blood pressure and anger management control!

How to deal 5- Throw all boys down a hole

 Lets just not even get into this. Boys are the epitome of stupid.

How to deal 5- Accept that boys are idiots


They just are so dense, and yet we still love them. It doesn't make any sense.

   So in conclusion, I hope you enjoyed this post! I had a lot of fun writing it. Hopefully one day we will create a large island to send all the stupid people in the world. (That would also be a great idea, right?) Then we can just live our lives without the impediment of idiots.
Have a great weekend!

The Human Heart, its art- collection


Love is War

A battle,
Always raging,
Never ending.
A kiss
Never meant
Never felt…

Your lips turn,
eyes glinting
 in a scattering of blazing embers
as you try to hurt me.

You throw your blows,
Like my blood will pay for this.
It wont.

Brooding under the surface,
dark clouds of anger.
This is what we have become.
This is how we will crush each other.
In-between the screams,
And cries of pain.
We will die here,
On this battleground of faults.
We will circle round and round,
Until our feet turn to ashes
And there is nothing left to conquer.

Love is War….


So break.
Blood lashes against the walls.
don't you understand?
I lo-
Skull hits cement,
heat sears the skin.
I love you...

So break.
Don't you understand?
If you can't hate,
what love is there.
Watching as you struggle to your feet,
just to twist you back around.
I can reel you closer,
lay you bare.
your in love.
So kiss me,
while your still alive.
Kiss me,
before I put you back on the ground
amidst the falling ashes.
And Watch You Cry.

So break.
I don't care,
I'll still love yo-
-Memories rush in,
I'm blacking out.
Crack of skin against bone,
I lo..

I love...

So break.
Your fixation,
writes your own story.
while you clutch your bruising skin,
just for the fun,
of watching you scream.
can hurt you.
So smile  love,
while I rip away your skin.

So Break.
 The wind is leaving my lungs.
Your voice frames my mind in tangled weeds.
Blood pulsing from my face,
thorns buried deep in flesh.
The tears streaking-
-from my eyes.
I'm invisible
to you.
But still...
...Why do I....

I throw you,
you come back.
It's like a game
wretchedly divine.
Your mine
No matter what I do
the best part?
I just don't care about you.

 So break.
I can't think.
So break.
I can't...
I can't do this anymore.
The man I love-
isn't really you.
So bre-

Bound to you

May hurricanes tear you down,
from your calloused throne of blood soaked thorns.
May rain pour from the sky,
and sweep away the wretched pain
lingering in the air
around the pallid corpse you've left of me.

You strut around,
like you own my soul.
But when I turn to you,
your colder than a forge of Ice.

I pray that the moon will cover the sun,
that the seasons passing will wrap me in a net of cold silver.
That in the darkness,
following the eclipse,
I can cut away this binding,
tying me to you.


Time is a wanton foe,

It leeches out the hours of the show.

Though our souls long to slow,

It will never stop turning.

The pendulum,

The show.

The truth... about introverts.

Hey...  #Introvert

Introverts. It just sounds scary. Like a word you give to freaky, anti-social creepers, right?.. but how many of you really know what or who introverts are? Doesn't everyone just assume introverts to be home loving, slightly mental, psychos?
   If that is actually your outlook on introverts then brace yourself. This may come as a rude shock to you, but I'm about to rebuff this quelling assumption. I'll willingly admit that I am among the scarce race of people known as introverts. No, they aren't reclusive, slightly mental psychos, they are just different. They think differently, (and much more), than most people.
   When I was younger being called introverted was an insult. Why? I always thought that introverted people resided in dark caves, deep in thick pine forests as far away from other humans as they could possibly get. As I got older, and started doing a little more reading on the matter I discovered that introverts aren't as ridiculously far fetched as I once thought.. in fact, everything I read sounded exactly like me! In an attempt to diminish the increasingly frustrating ideas about what introverts are, allow me to address some of the myths and truths of introverts.

Contrary to the general outlook on introverts, they aren't as scarce as some have been led to believe -and no, they don't all hide in self dug holes deep away from sunlight and people. According to The Introvert Advantage (How To Thrive in an Extrovert World), by Marti Laney, Psy.D, about 25% of people are Introverts.They are the minority of our population but the majority of the gifted in our population.
Introverts totally superior!

Myth 1. Introverts are shy. This assumption is completely inaccurate. Introverts can be extremely social, outgoing and friendly, especially once they feel comfortable around you. Introverts prefer to watch rather than jump headlong into all the festivities, not because they are afraid of people, but because they need a reason to do so. They aren't mad, or depressed, or even anti social!  An Introvert’s preferred interaction with people is often more of listening than it is of talking. More one-to-one than speaking in large groups at the same time. An Introvert can speak to a large crowd, but when it comes to having group conversation, an Introvert is more likely to feel awkward. (1) On the surface, introversion looks a lot like shyness and though both limit social interaction, shyness and introversion are for differing reasons. "The shy want desperately to connect with others but find socializing difficult," says Bernardo J. Carducci, professor of psychology and director of the Shyness Research Institute at Indiana University Southeast. "Introverts seek time alone because they want time alone. An introvert and a shy person might be standing against the wall at a party, but the introvert prefers to be there, while the shy individual feels she has no choice."(2)


Myth 2. Introverts don't like to talk. This almost makes me laugh out loud. Introverts LOVE talking, but HATE small talk. Introverts don’t talk unless they have something to say and aren't comfortable trying to make themselves heard. They would rather just listen then have to speak something that no one appears to desperately need said. In case you didn't catch it before, they hate small talk. If you were to get an introvert talking about something they're interested in they won’t shut up for days.
   Those who actually know me are well acquainted with the fact that I love to talk. However, I'm easily annoyed by people who want to text me for hours and talk about.. NOTHING.
 "Introverts crave meaning, so party chitchat feels like sandpaper to our psyche." Diane Cameron
Myth 3. Introverts don't like people. This is perhaps the most stinging myth out there. Introverts care deeply about people. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. The way in which introverts love is deeper more personal, they treasure you. They would physically endure pain for you, if it meant you would be happy. It is true that introverts often get worn out being around people for to long, and will often subside from society for a few weeks in order to recharge and rest. A lot of the time this can be viewed negatively by an introvert's friends, however, the chances are that their sudden withdraw from humanity has absolutely nothing to do with you. Introverts need time to recuperate, to recharge so that they can give their best again.
   As an introvert, you tend to care far to much about, well, everything. People we love are only intensified in that respect.
Myth 4. Introverts don't like to be out in public, they always want to be alone. This is absolute nonsense. Introverts don't mind being out in public, but they don't like being out in public for as long as other people. It is very true that they enjoy solitude, but they don't always need to be alone. Though it is often what they crave most. Introverts seek to be alone, not to be lonely, but to spend time listening to their thoughts. "They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time." (2) Introverted minds are constantly whirling, constantly thinking, solitude is like a paradise, an oasis in their heads. Imagine for a moment that you were an introvert who had just been asked the simple question, "how are you?" More than likely, these would be the general outline of your thoughts. Well, how am I really? Am I fine? What's really going on with me. I felt okay this morning, though now I'm a little worn out. Because of that I feel a little anxious and my toes are still sore from jamming them into the wall yes- I'll stop you there before I have a chance to fill up the whole page. Introverts think about EVERYTHING. Even simple questions such as that.

 Love, extrovert / introvert definition.

Myth 5. Introverts are odd. It is true that introverts tend to be much more unique than the general population, mainly because they give themselves the ability to be themselves. They are less likely to 'follow the crowd', and more likely to develop personal interests and hobbies. However, this doesn't make them odd, it just makes them real. They don't waste time pretending to be infatuated with an idea or concept that everyone else is obsessing over. It doesn't mean they don't like things other people like, no, it just means they like things they like. Some could classify this as being 'odd', or even 'weird' -but then- who are the ones pretending?
Introvert Reality Check #1 - "We're quiet, therefore we're..." the perception and reality.
Now on to truths about introverts!

 Introvert Reality Check #2

Truth 1. Introverts can be successful. From various online searches (because the internet is always right), I came up with a list of some examples of those believed to be introverts from verbal or other leading ques, these include: J.K. Rolling, the author of Harry Potter. Abraham Lincoln. Christina Aguilera, pop star and reality TV mentor. Albert Einstein, the world-renowned physicist who developed the theory of relativity. Emma Watson, actress. Audrey Hepburn, actress. Johnny Depp, actor. The list goes on.

Truth 2. Introverts can have many strong social skills.


Truth 3. Introverts are creative, they are deep thinkers.  They don't respond as fast as normal people when faced with questions or problems because the thought processes of their minds are more complicated. The message from the brain to the mouth takes a sort of circular course, rather than direct. Whereas an extrovert has the capacity to transmit thoughts directly from their brain to their mouth.

Introverts are Awesome - Facebook
Sorry about the language, I just thought this was hilarious.

 Thinking vs. saying - introverts

Truth 4. Introverts treasure the relationships they make. As I said before, Introverts care a LOT. When they say they love you, they weren't joking. Introverts thrive on meaning. They think about things, saying something emotionally untrue would be like making light of our own souls. (unless of course they re-think the whole thing over again and come up with a different answer.)
i care  

Truth 5. Introverts aren't freaks. In fact, they blend in so well with the population that it's pretty difficult most of the time to identify an introverted individual. We think, we talk, we feel, we laugh, and we enjoy solitude.
The end.

You're Worth More Than Diamonds


I am strong
Because I've known weakness.
I am whole
Because I've known loneliness.
I am confident
because I've been broken.
I can love
because I've known hate.

Everything has happened
for a reason.
The tears, the blood, the pain..
The mistakes, flaws, and isolation.
It was to purify you,
through acrid flames,
into a person who could see the world
in a different way.

It was to clear away the excess,
and expose the diamonds within the coal.
Your suffering,
has made you whole.
In a way no book could ever teach you.
Because when you have lived,
as long as us.
Is so much more

So the next time,
you think you will just give up.
Remember that all of this,
is just building you up.
By the end,
You'll be worth more than infinite mounds of diamonds.
Youth is fleeting,
so is happiness.
But when you've finnaly accepted who you are...
that wont ever change. 
No matter what comes your way.

I can see
because my eyes have been clouded.
I can feel
because I've been numb before.
I can hope
because I've known despair.

 Because of these things.

I am strong.
In a way someone who hasn't felt this,
can't become.
