Random from Favourites

Sorry for the wait but I've been busy with studies this week..but here are the competition results!!! Woo!! I hope you enjoyed writing the literature for the competition as I had as much fun reading them, they were all written really well and it was hard to pick the winner!

First place - only when you realise
as much as I want you
in my arms tonight
I would rather not
let you touch me
until I am sure of
love in its true form
between us
love for me is
when two beautiful souls
come into one song
to celebrate sacredness
of each other
in every minute
that passes by
I am pulled toward you
wanting to discover
the home of your soul
that lies in simplest
things of life
I do not desire love
if its not real
I do not crave for your touch
if it won't last forever
I have spent sleepless nights
without you
and life will always move on
but I need to feel
the pulse of you
in me
with an intensity
that is as promising as
the morning sun
and as pure as
the tender dew
because when I look at you
I know we've had a history
many lives before
because you are precious
to me just the way
you were in all those lifetimes
and because we couldn't finish
what we were suppose to
every time we met as strangers
there are two different worlds
between us right now
but the respect I have for you
has profound vastness
like the

Second - ~Absolute You~
I want you boundless
Your thoughts never to stray on another woman
I want you exclusively
Your hands never to meet another woman
I want you abruptly
Your song to be only for me
I want you profoundly
Your eyes to be solely for me
I want you absolute
I
Want
You

Third - 1 AMHair stands on end as lips pull back in a feral bellow
Fists clench tight against pale palms, sharp nails digging into soft flesh
A defensive snarl emits from the opponent, hurtful words and unjust accusations fly across the gap
Hands raised in a sign of submission, words of regret and apology spill forth over trembling lips, seeking forgiveness and comfort
Human eyes close wearily, act of dominance now done, tears held back by timid instinct, love growing thin in the presence of constant discord
One collapses against the other, seeking warmth and comfort in the almost reluctant lovers embrace
Another night passes in a nondescript home filled with false hope and broken promises
Another night envelopes the sleeping lovers, doing its best to wipe away the debris of the day before

Fourth - volwassen wordenAls een bloem in de wind
Waai ik zachtjes mee
Om mij heen is grazend vee
Jij weet wat ik mooi vind
Maar na alle mooie dagen
Met de mooie gele zon
Het is dat jij mijn hart won
Maar nu resten er alleen maar vragen
De liefde verwelkt en wordt oud
Jij bent voor mij onzichtbaar
Iets dat niet meer bestaat
De winter laat me koud
Zoals ik langzaam wegvaar
De fantasie vergaat
here is the translation guys~~
as a flower in the wind
am i slowly waving along
surrounded by grass eating cattle
you know what i think is pretty
but after all those sunny days
with the beauty of the yellow sun
it is that you found my love
but now only questions remain
love withers away en grows old
you are invisible to me
something that does not exist anymore
the winter does not bother me anymore
as i slowly drift away
fantasy lost

:icongliovampire: recently posted the following text on groups page, it's worth it to have a look!
This is to inform you about a writing contest in a literary magazine called Angie's Diary.
I post this because I know how difficult it is for a writer to be published - especially a young writer. They gave me a chance to be published in this magazine and I thought that other writers could benefit from the opportunity too.
Here is the link: angiesdiary.com/articles/messa… (there are explanations about the contest in a link posted in this article)
Good luck to all those who will participate

I've been thinking about what I could do to make this group more awesome and came up with a number of ideas:
1. New admin members who can help with running extra things for the group. For example..having a featured folder where the admins pick the top best story, prose, etc..one for each category.
2. New competition for the festive season!!

In the past blog entry here are the results for the last competition if you missed them!
First place: How to Survive a CreepypastaStep one: Never ignore your instincts.
Was that movement at the corner of your eye? Maybe you heard something out your window? Someone behind you sounds like they're walking a little too quickly for your comfort...
When something inside you is telling you something is wrong, chances are, something is. Lets call this our survival instinct. Animals have them, and they don't ignore them. They act. The difference with us humans is that we doubt ourselves. We tell ourselves we're being paranoid, that it was nothing. “It was just the wind”, “It was probably an animal”, or, everyone's favorite: “It was just my imagination.”
Eventually, it comes to a point you're in denial. You think that if you ignore it and pretend it's not there, then it'll go away. You've given your enemy the upper hand.
Step two: Don't give in to paranoia.
With step one in mind, it's important not to become constantly afraid. That fear and paranoia only feeds what it is yo

Second place: Home -A Horror Story Contest EntryThe day I came home from the army was one of the happiest days of my life. I had been brought home two months early from what was supposed to be a nine-month deployment. I was ecstatic to see my five-year-old son and wife who was due the next month to give birth to my second child. When I got off that bus and had my family in my arms again was pure bliss from the hell I had come from. I had served my time in a black zone, meaning a very dangerous place to be sent, and had seen many of my brothers-in-arms fall to enemy hands. But the war was over now, and I was home. The worse was over, or so I thought. Little did I know that this day, which was the first day of joy I had experienced in months, would be the last such day I would ever experience.
When I got to the three-bedroom apartment I called home, and stood in the doorway, the first things I noticed were the walls. Before I left, I had remembered them being bright, cheery colors. My wife and I had painted them together not longer af

Third place: Siren's SongThe girl pulled the blanket tighter around her shoulders and tiptoed towards the open door.  Peeking into the hall beyond to make sure her mother was nowhere to be found, she scurried out the door and hurried towards the loud noises and drunken laughter coming from a room farther along.  Her family members from all over the country had come to visit and she wasn't going to let a little sickness spoil her fun.
She loved when her family all got together like this and didn't want to miss a second of it; especially not her granduncle’s storytelling.  Her mother always told her not to listen to a word the man said, but she couldn't help but join her younger family members in sitting by the fire and listening to one of his fantastic (and often completely fictitious) stories.
She reached the door at the end of the hall and peeked inside.  Men passing around drinks, her mother nowhere to be seen, and her granduncle in his spot by the fire

Runners up: Ktenology     The dead weight was slowing him down. He struggled with the body, testing his own limits to drag the sack across the ground. The terrain of the woods tore into the bag, rending gashes in the black plastic skin. It was beginning to leak.
     Despite the trail he was leaving, he didn’t rush himself. No one was going to find this body. None of the clues would remain, and he had faith that this incident, like all of the others, would be swallowed up in the shadows. 
    There were enough shadows in this forest to hide what he done. A stream bubbled and frothed not far from here, and it fed into a larger tributary that eventually found the river. He had quenched his thirst from the banks of the stream many times, and watched it lick the blood from his skin. In return, he had watered the pines with the blood of men like the one in the sack. 
     The sun was warm and deep where it fell through the trees, slipping th

Does anyone know a place where I can submit pictures with pieces of a story?


I'm reintroducing her, so its only a sketch this time, forgive me. But this is an example. Submitting art that tell pieces of the story, while the description holds the scene? Kinda thing?

Or is this a group that I can submit these kinds of things to? Is this accepted here? ;; Any help/replies appreciated.
