I spent the entire day with him, and I feel like I'm 10 years younger. My face hurts from smiling so much. We laughed, we sighed, we stood silent, we stared, we spoke with a kind of certainty that I didn't know existed.

We shared stories that haven't been shared with anyone else. We learned a lot about each other. It's a special connection that is new and still in early development. I cherish it so much that somewhere in me- thinks that it feels wrong.

We all feel doubt. It's hard not to doubt aspects in everyday life. I doubt myself because I don't trust myself.

I can't help but question this type of happiness that I'm currently experiencing. The only one I don't doubt- is him. Out of every small detail involved in this, I never once doubted him and everything he has said.

I know I blind myself from the other side of the coin.

Why question something that seems good from all angles? I don't have a decent, clear answer for that.

Time didn't seem to exist today- with him. We spent eight hours together, but it felt like a different quantity of time.

All I have are questions that aren't definite. I only know that spending time with him helps me survive another night.

I'm a writer who combines literature with graphic design. You will see the majority of my deviations with cover art. To manipulate and also create, I use Photoshop CS5. I know my method of showcasing my artwork is a touchy one. A lot of people on DA just save something from google and attache it to their work without any permission or consideration of the owner. A lot of viewers assume that I do the same, but I don't, and I hate being put in the same category with those types of deviants. I am merely using everything in my arsenal to upload worthy material for users to read and admire.

I have been graphic designing since 2006, and I have been writing since December 2007. I self-published my own 40 page poetry book in the summer or 2009. It is titled "Living My Life, Behind Hollowed Eyes", and it was surprisingly successful. All copies got taken within two hours. I didn't sell them, I just announced that I had a book printed out, and whoever wants one can have it for free. In my eyes if the books didn't get taken, then it would have been a failure.

Present day- I am working on multiple book projects to do with poetry. My second project got started in 2010, which is titled "Broken Wings Unbound: I'm Falling Down / I'm Soaring Now" has undergone numerous changes to match my ever-evolving style of writing.
My third project which got started in late 2011 is titled- "The Other Side Of The Sky" and it's more concentrated on positive aspects of life, whereas my other projects are mainly dark.
My fourth project that got started in early 2012 is titled "The Prodigy's Suicide" it's a more raw type of poetry. Dealing with a touchy subject and the elements within it. I started the fourth one when I first started going into therapy, so therapy is what this project was birthed from.
My fifth project, which is mainly new, is because of ceasing therapy, it got started in October of 2012. It is titled "Skin of Stone" it is what I like to call my improv style of writing. Writing a piece within one writing session, beginning to end, in one shot.

With the closures of some of my books just looming around the corner, I have started two new book. 2013~

"Trials Of The Mind" deals with heartbreak and soulache. It also deals with thoughts of pure love and passion. This book is dedicated to a special someone who shall remain nameless.

"Divide The Divine" will be more out-of-my-style kind of writing. Lets just say this book will be something even I'm unfamiliar with and unsure about. More information to come on this matter.
