“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


It’s a long time coming when it passes by,
And always makes me smile.
These colors talk, and a story unfolds,
And is told after a while.

Some say it doesn’t mean much, but to me
It’s speaks beyond its canvas.
I like the way it’s mysterious and flawed,
So undeniably careless.

It doesn’t take much to build a whole world
Out of these two hands.
And no, it doesn’t take very long for me
To get lost in strange lands.

LOL, NO! My dear, nothing so horrible as that! There are differnt email settings, i dont know about the other ones, but I get emails from TI at 9 in the morning and 6 in the evening, with info on the status of my stuff, the new articles of the people I susbscribe to, as well as TWO OR THREE of the things the post fourm-wise, not ALL, that would be overwhelming indeed. I would pity whoever subscribed to me. But it was overwhelming having every morning and nightly TI email chock full of random names.... Im going to guess, from what I saw, your real first name is Callie?

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Hahhaa same here jade....Though I managed to keep quiet about it... I figured it was a result of boredom so I didn't say anything....It's not THAT annoying though ..... But funny everytime. :P

i typed a reply but it had the word as.shole in it and didn't send :P. Anywho, a lot of them were in response to some random *as.shole* named Hitler (for example, A.Jew, just to pi.ss him off) but then yeah, the rest were a result of boredom and unwholesome thoughts.......i am sorry to have caused you annoyance, I DIDN'T KONW :(

Well.... for like the first seven or eight mornings it gave me a chance to laugh my butt off. You ARE pretty funny! But yes, deeply annoying, now. And disturbing, as you began to run out of wholesome names. But dont you worry, i am a hunoroous person, I had a phase where I kept randomly changing my name when I had no one to talk to. I hope no one had subscribed to my posts back then! I dont want them to see the weird things I typed!

Very good, very good..... ya know, im fond of your works, your pretty good. I actually subscribe to your work because I like to check it out now and again..... did you know that, in addition to when a post goes up on TI, it ALSO lets me know when you cnange your name or profile....? Every. Single. Time. Please stop giving yourself weird names.... or at least not six or seven in one day....

Jade, you just left me breathless with one. Paintings can have that effect on anyone. This poem just gives me peace and happiness too. Love it!
