Dividing the Imagined by ShesABromide

Very interesting here as i look at it. My only complaint is the fact that the composition and what is being drawn is a very common and ...



Share your work with me.  1 - 2 images please.  I'll go and comment on everything and leave some feedback.

I only ask for you to do the same on these.

I entered a piece of mine into a non-profit gallery and it was a SUCCESS.  Lots of art collectors were asking questions about it and eyeing it up.  On top of that i have a potential buyer.  So i might sell my first piece ever.  This is a milestone i thought i would never reach as an artist.
something mutters this day
tracking down the loose ends
of my untied shoes.
down to the very bone
very fabric very essence
of everything entitled to me.
something says that,
it's just today, today is a special day
always wondering why today even exists
it's just a dark reminder
and red blotted circle on a white wall
forever reminding me of a missed mark.

is it the bulls-eye i aim for?
or maybe it's just landing on the board
i don't fully know
i don't understand,
maybe i just want today
to be mine,
something to share with someone else
after-all, it is Valentines My Love.
The Hidden Past
A story to tell for me at last
I bring you to my doors in vast
always lingering further more
please open the wooden stuttered door.
It is not what one might think
I do not tell of days of bleak
moments of truth we all should share.
For these doors forever bare
a moment of peace or maybe not.
For they shall shrink and often of bad thought.

Every time I open this door
we shall see things I do not adore.
Call them skeletons as they creep
they will shatter like bones fragile and weak.
They will echoe through the land they must
they will tell you of times of just
simply a moment that all will know
for these are tales of all my woes.

Bring a candle over to the door
brighten a dark room I do say more.
Let it sink through the wax and adhere the stem
even let the man know which is now, and which is then.

It is crystal clear i should say
for this time is often left at bay.
I say for i tell you now
I was often left alone, to hide and growl.
I had not much comfort in my past
i was tormented and told to last.
Trying to seize the day i see a shake
my world quakes i do not debate.
My sister trembles without a thought
possessed one might think if you ought.
She would seize on regular basis
epilepsy the doctors related.

It would happen day and day
i would cry in my room always.
I would be left alone thinking many things
seeing a horrorous site and began to dream.
I would see a demon or maybe a zombie
chase me through my home and haunt me
he would bleed and write on walls
the number three in roman numerals.

Now I think i said enough,
for this is just a creek to let out some dust.
There is more hidden deeper
but lets just let that be a sleeper.

- FIRERAGE - All I have wanted to do since reading my first book was to create characters and worlds;reamls of dreams and wonders.I would be truly grateful for the most precious gifts of your time and talents.My name is Andrew yet I use the username Ravel22.Any guidance you could give would be greatly appreciated.I love fantasy,and when I say love,I mean it whole heartedly.I own so many books(which are my prized possessions)you would not believe me if I told you!I can imagine good stories about fantastic magic,but I only get as far as research and outlines.Some short prose,maybe.So,if you would,please consider me a humble student,thank you.

Hey man what do you need help with?
Ravel22 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014
Sorry it's been solong to reply,I don't get as much time on the computer since we only have one to share at my house. I really could use help in taking my ideas and rendering a true story that people would enjoy reading. For some reason when I start to write I can only get so far before my writing goes way out of the path intended or I just get stuck.I've had these major injuries that are now manifesting memory problems that seem to interfere with things in uncertain ways. I get of to a start and then get stuck. I really want to write but I feel stupid and get discouraged because I never feel like what I write will ever be good enough for anyone to enjoy.You ever feel like that? And now,I'm even having trouble just starting because I have read so much, I don't want to look like I'm trying to sound like someone else or stealing anyone else's words. Idk man it's hard to explain.
