I'm not sure yet, but I'll probably make a new deviantArt account. There's nothing I want more than to be more active on here - because I really do love interacting, critiquing, and such, but it's hard for me to motivate myself to do that on this account. So, more than likely I will create a new account and of course follow all my old friends and everything, maybe to start out repost a few deviations. But I think it'll be best that way.

When I make it I will post it in my next journal. Be on the lookout :)
I’ve known how to breathe all my life,
at least that’s what I’ve been told.
No one taught me
no one showed me how
I just opened my mouth and
breathe in,
breathe out.


If I never had to learn how to live
why does it sometimes feel
so goddamn hard to fill my lungs
and let go of everything
like I’ve been born to do?
Why did no one tell me about the earth
and how it lives too,
about how when I press my ear to the dirt
I can hear it wheezing and
crying all at once?
Someone once told me that,
someone once said that the Earth is alive
and it inhales children’s footsteps
and exhales the trees whispers
and sighs the soft sounds of love.

Someone once told me that.

Now that they’re gone it’s as if
the trembling of the ground has
ceased and my lungs suddenly
just squeeze
and everything that I’ve known
has left
and now, it’s a struggle to breathe.

As a child I didn’t know how hard my lungs worked
I didn’t know what they had to do,
I didn’t know about the blood that pumped,
all I knew was that if I held my breath
my face would turn blue.

Now you spend your time thinking about
where you went wrong,
I know you do.
When did my feet start tripping
when did my lips start to crack
when did the whites of my eyes
start to roll back

Snapping and snipping and sliding and slipping,
starting to snatch on to anything I can snag
Sighing when the scavenging shackles me to souls,
realizing it’s all just pointless.

When you realize your heart is just an organ
you’ll stop tormenting yourself with thoughts
of it breaking and cracking,
when you realize his name is just a word you’ll
start to see straight
When you realize that breathing doesn’t mean living,
you’ll start to feel sane.
Breathe
This is actually a spoken word poem so I really think the impact comes from my performance... but oh well this will do I guess.

I wrote this for my creative writing class and for some reason nearly started crying when I read in front of class. I feel like that might've added to the emotional impact so I guess I'm okay with it, and I'm actually really proud of this so I super hope you like it.

Picnics With You

I would love to hear your thoughts on it - what it evoked for you, in anything!

I fucking hate you.

If you never said hello,
if you never looked me in the eye,
I might have turned out okay.

But your name is rough off my tongue
and your hands with mine turn ice,
clear eyes now dark and clouded,
laughter slitting my neck.

I hate your smile and flushed cheeks and
the way you brush my hands like I’m going to
break. How my silence now never
lasts when you’re here,
how your fingers are always steady on my own.

Your voice is too soft and eyes too kind,
too kind with me.
When you stand alone but always seem
crowded, and I start to think maybe
I’m not so scared anymore.

If you weren’t so goddamn gorgeous
with your hair pulled back in that
blue bow you always wear,
maybe I wouldn’t be sitting here with
nothing left.

I don’t know, I don’t know,
my heart beats faster with the thought
of your willowed voice and sometimes it  
makes me wish, maybe, I could change.

When your head leaned on my shoulder
I think you knew what you did,
and I think I knew how this would end.

God, I fucking love you.
You Knew
Mature content because it says the f word twice :shrug:

This isn't from my POV but it's a love poem, make of it as you wish. I really like it. Written for my creative writing class

Back from another few inactive months, here we are.

School has been a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I fact, its a hundred times better than last year. My creative writing class is amazing and I've been befriending a lot of the people in the class, which is making me unbelievably happy. We're working in poetry right now, which means yes- I have poetry to post. I super want to catch up with all my dA friends and give out some critiques stuff but I can't promise anything. Though, it IS my break right now so maybe I could squeeze in a few.

My other classes are fine and I have friends in all of them, as well as a lot of homework. But I've managed fine, except for in my advanced physics class, but that's a story for another day.

I feel like my every journal is here apologizing for being inactive but I feel like its a useless apology to give. All I can say is I hope to find the motivation to come on her more often and thank you all for hanging in there with me, I appreciate it.

Hey! I'm Alisyn, but you can call me Alisyn, Alice, or Ali. I'm just your typical teen girl with blonde curly hair and really long legs :stare: I play basketball and have been since I was 6 years old... I love writing and drawing, but writing is definitely my life. No matter what it's the thing that keeps me grounded when I want to fly away :giggle:

I'm a pretty friendly and positive person, even though can get sad sometimes. :noes: I try to smile as much as I can and be kind to those who I meet. But ya know, I'm not perfect.

I love music, like I can't live without it. If you want to know what I like go ahead and check my interests/stamps. I'd say I've became a lover of mostly just metalcore, but most rock will do it for me and some Alternative and electronic, if done right. Not a fan of rap, country, or hip hop, but it doesn't mean I don't respect them. I'm always listening to music, and if you have anything you think I should try listening to, I'd love to hear! :dummy:

Drop me a comment and I'll try to get back to you! I'd love more than anything else feedback or comments on my art... it makes my whole day happier! Constructive criticism, I might add. Thank you, hope you enjoy my page :)

It was the best night of my life! I want to tell you about it but I've been so bogged down with homework, and I have bball tryouts tomorrow, I don't know if I can do that for a while

OOOOH excitement! Tell me when you get yours :)

We really really really need to find a time to talk soon. I know we're both busy but maybe sometime over the weekend we can find an hour or two to squeeze in for talking? I would love that.

And I'd love to hear about it!! :D Oh my gosh, are you prepared for the tryouts? They would be today, right? GOOD LUCK! YOU CAN DO IT!! :happybounce:

I'll definitely let you know when it arrives! I texted your dad back but I think text messages sometimes do and sometimes don't get sent (I don't know what's up with that). I'm ashamed to say but it'll probably be a little while before your present is done/arrives :ashamed: But the good news is that after this week I should be done with the worst of the worst, so I can definitely save an hour for you!

p.s. I'm nearing the end of the second book of the Maze Runner series and if Minho dies I will riot
