Anything for the girl by LortiaMJB Anything for the girl :iconlortiamjb:LortiaMJB 2 0
Literature
And may you ever read this
Somehow what keeps me going
is what holds me back
My intentions to keep on living
is to once say my apologies
For I'm sorry, but shame is what kills me
so for whomever reads this
And knows it's theirs to read
I'll do my best to thrive, and hope you will too
I can never say sorry again
and somewhere I miss you
I didn't want to be angry back then
I've walked with this weight for so long
We're both guilty, but where you could
I never said what I wanted to
Unforgiving my heart once broke
and now we're nearly eight years later
It still weighs heavy
the patches won't heal it
it's still broken, always broken
I've lived on but never moved on
Your ghost haunting me
the words you said to me, coming clean
Why was I so angry, shocked
why didn't I think?!
I hope some day you'll be happy
be the one who's truly lucky
Find yourself the life you deserve
I miss your smile
I still have a single picture of you
somewhere, tucked away safely
it reminds me of my biggest mistake
of what might have been, if I

The three steps to frustration - Spoken word
The 3 steps to frustration
by decomposition of the heart
and the only way out
a rather optimistic fatalistic poem
one
Sadness, fury, humiliation
let it flow freely
inside your rivers of life
gradually drying
but never show the world the devastation
of your emotional landscape
two
Instead, try on this personality
Don't like it? Here's another one
to hide behind
Now attribute all your successes to this facade
all your failures to your heart
a cardboard mask will never be bulletproof
three
Gasping for air, longing to feel
anything but the emptiness
left by the pain induced by the wounds in your chest
numb the pain in their attention
embodying untouchability while losing grip on life
emotional suicide
When rage puts that gun to your head
uncertainty doubts you have the courage to pull the trigger
courage doubts uncertainty's existence
and doubt doesn't have the courage to end the relentless uncertainty
fear spends its days hiding, crying in a corner
and disgust looks at you when you look i

Fell in Love With You
He watched me cry,
He watched me smile,
He made me laugh,
And he made me shout.
He never let me fall,
But the one time
He couldn’t catch me,
I fell in love with him.
He broke my heart,
But he put it back together,
One soothing word after another,
One broken heart to fix the other.
I’ve never seen real love before,
But dammit it’s so beautiful,
It came to me in the shape of a man,
And he came to me with
A heart so full of passion,
His lungs couldn’t hold the
Strong beating of his heart.
So now I watch him drift away,
His heart is barely beating,
His breath is barely showing,
And I say goodbye
To the one who saved me,
And died without regret.
But I regret letting myself fall,
Because now I can’t get back
To the surface,
My heart is broken again,
And he’s not here to fix it.
I remember the sun
Glowing in his eyes,
On a late afternoon in July,
And he smiled at me and whispered,
“Love will never hurt you.”
And back then, in the summer sun

February 17, 1997
when my best friend Olivia was born, she weighed 2.1 pounds. in the heart of Clearwater, Florida, a team of 17 doctors hunched over her soda-can-sized body for months until her lungs could handle natural air. it is approximated that one out of every four premature births results in death. my best friend Olivia had a 25% chance of losing her life before it even started. most would claim her survival a miracle, others just a matter of chance or work of science. maybe in an alternate universe, there is a child who didn’t make it past her mother’s womb. the world would never know that her eyes would’ve been brown or that her voice would’ve been all wine glasses and hot air, her hair a nameless shade of auburn.
my best friend Olivia, her 2.1-pound-5-inch frame, her pink skin and webbed fingers, she makes me believe in God most days. the Latin translation of “Olivia” is “olive tree,” which is classified as “very hardy, drought-, disease-,

The Wanderer
The Wanderer
...by Loki
How Long have I Traveled, Charting Course through many Lifetimes,
I Emerge from Yggdrasil, Always Forgetting the Past,
Yet the Paths I Trek, Rewrite History,
Fragmented Expressions, through a Glass Darkly.
I am so Tired, yet it is not Physical Exhaustion that Burdens me,
It is of the Spirit and Soul, Far Older than I can Remember,
The Ravens of my Mind, the Wolves of my Heart,
Walk in the Wind, Traversing the Depths.
I see Myself Reflected in Everything, Person, Place, or Thing,
And yet I am Nothing, a Lonely Universe of Myself,
Looking in Vanities Mirror, I Shatter it and See Beyond,
I Peer within the Void, and it All comes back.
I Walk in the Shoes of Every Living Being, from the Tiniest Rock to the Cosmos itself,
I Shadow Step around, My Empathy Encompasses the Whole,
Feeling every Vibration, every Hope and Aspiration,
Every Fear and Desolation, Overloaded to the Core.
It is I who Wander through your Dream Halls, Ghost of many Faces,
Yet I am Young and Vibran

My Mother's Horse
The night my mother died, the horse in the barn started singing.
Its neck bulged, veins sticking out like ropes around a hanged man's throat. The old blind eyes stared at nothing, dumbly terrified of the same.
"Shut up, you old dumb bitch," I snapped at it. It had been my mother's horse. Better than a lawnmower, cheaper than a car, she used to say. But for the last few years, it had been too sick to eat and too weak to ride or pull a cart. It just stood in its stall, swaying on its broomstick legs and heaving its eyelids up and down over its smoggy eyes. We'd been an odd trio—my mom, her horse, and me. She refused to kill it, and it had probably been a better daughter to her than I had anyway.
They'd both started spitting out teeth as they aged, joined in an inter-species sisterhood I couldn't begin to understand. Lumps of bone tumbled out of their jaws and left behind muculent yellow holes emptier than any tooth ever could have filled. I remember the first one my mother lost. Th

I'm not a poet
I'm not a poet.
I'm just a random guy
from a random corner of the world
who spills thoughts and self proclamations
like a child spills milk
mother always said
don't cry over spilled milk
I'm far from elegant,
even further from sane
and further still from a wordsmith who has tuned
His mind into a symphony of neuron pulses
or the aristocracy of art who spill sentences
from their hearts like conductors on stages
I'm not a poet.
I'm not broken.
I'm just a boy who hides in the corner
while his world screams stop

How to love a girl who can't love herself.
one.
    When she cries herself to sleep
    six out of seven nights a week you must
    say nothing. You must simply take
    her in your arms and kiss her gaunt,
    pale cheeks and wait for her to
    slumber at the sound of your heart.
two.
    On the days where she wishes she
    were part of the stars, tell her
    no. Tell her that there are too many
    lights in the sky and that just one
    would be forgotten the moment you looked
    away from it. Tell her that she is perfect
    the way she is: completely human.
three.
     Don't let her think about the scars
     that no one but her can see. If she
     says "I think I'm broken" smile like you
     know a secret and say, "No, you're mending."
     But do not be the one to fix her - no, she

fat
i am not handsome, but i am endearing
and wearing clothes to cover my indecent
flesh and unhealthy habits i will charm you
with witty jokes, sarcasm, and a surprising intellect;
because, who would think I’d be social
and approachable, smart, and charming
despite being fat, and unattractive?
considering the question
i dared to undress and see my body
for the first time in weeks
-sagging belly, and a full stomach ,
fat breasts, stretch marks,
and my manhood asleep
as if it were impotent
and quiet.
people compliment my shirts,
or my beard’s red tint
but never my smile,
and rarely my eyes.
sometimes i am cute,
and i’m compared to big teddy bears
‘cause I’m ‘comfortable’ and ‘big’
and ‘huggable’
but i didn’t quite hear the same compliments
when i was 60 pounds lighter.
i am not a man, i am an overweight child
with a bad knee and penchant
to dissimulate my pain
and self-defecating humor.
my beard is a mess, but it hides

Loud silence
Deafening silence in my head.

I can't, just can't.
It's as if I lost my way.
Not the same.
I long for music,
a voice, an echo,
because even that isn't granted to me...
Goosebumps everywhere,
as if I don't know warmth.

Speedpaint of the piece: youtu.be/Qgeuf_fhrmo

I actually sketched up this piece before I started livestreaming it, so there's no pre-work yet. I do however like the simple crosshatching used in it, even if the dragon's anatomy isn't really spot-on. I decided to put in a tiny Cebyr in the foreground to give the sense of scaling and I have built a liking to the guy.

I hope you like the piece and enjoy the video. ^^

Colored version, someone suggested making it an autumn-colored piece, so I tried my best adding more browns and yellows through the flat greens. ^^

Speedpaint: youtu.be/PifP9MQvdsc
A4-size piece of linework I did to kill the boredom last night, this week you can see the first sketches to the finalized linework, next week I'll be uploading the colored version. I challenged myself to do a piece I had always stuck in my head but never got around to actually work on, either because of lack of skill or because I was busy on something else.

Anyway, Endless Depths shows several natural stone towers connected by some drawbridges. I hope you like it. ^^

For the sake of well... Getting myself to continually draw, I started a YT channel for character creation and speedpaints. For now most characters will involve the story I'm writing, letting myself discover them as well and practice my anatomy on a regular basis. :)

www.youtube.com/channel/UCp6QS…

Only two videos so far on it, I'm setting myself up for a character piece every second Friday to not pressure myself too much seeing how little time I have with a fulltime job and having way too many hobbies.
The two characters Cebyr and Grub have already been uploaded and I hope you like them. ^^

Wel okay, leven is druk en de dagen zijn lang.. Woon weer bij me pa door financiele redenen en k werk nu als leerling stratenmaker 40 uur in de week.. 2 DnD campaigns waar ik druk mee ben en ik krijg steeds meer vraag naar me tekeningen. :)

TL;DR het gaat wel goed, alleen druk. En met jou meid? Heb je niet meer gezien/gesproken sinds CF vorig jaar, ga je trouwens dit jaar weer of niet?

(2DnD campaigns~?)

Mijn leven is ook druk... misschien wel te druk... tja... ik ga binnenkort naar een psycholoog omdat ik heel erg last heb van faalangst.
En dat hele 'faal angst' gebeuren maakt het zoeken naar een stage ook niet makkelijker...
Zit nu in de 2de MBO MediaCollege VRPC en als het even mee zit zal ik volgend jaar de eerst 5 maanden stage lopen.

Het is altijd goed om te horen dat je tekeningen gewild zijn... die van mij zijn dat ook ;) maar daar doe ik niet aan (dat is zo'n 6 uur per tekening)
(ik had een 10 gehad voor een tekening)

Heb je een social media~? (of hoe je dat ook zegt) a.k.a. whatsapp, telegram, facebook...


TL DR~?

Fuck you, ga het lezen xD
