Wow...

It's been a long while since I've updated my journal, hasn't it? Some of you might think I just dropped off the face of the earth and I might as well have done just that.

I've barely touched deviantArt for about 7 months. One month of that was due to me participating in NaNoWriMo, about three months of it was just me being lazy, and the past three is due to a number of complicated things. I won't go into the details, but I've been working through some personal stuff and it's taken a massive toll on my inspiration and motivation to do artwork. The only thing that hasn't been seemingly stamped out is my ability for writing lyrics or poetry, because, to me, that is the most effective outlet I have for expressing the emotions I've experienced during my absence.

Like I said, it's all pretty personal. These days, my life is so consumed with work and my tiny excuse for a social life that my creative side has tremendously and regrettably suffered. Be patient with me, guys. I haven't uploaded a lot of stuff due to the aforementioned subjects, and my account will probably continue to be dead for a little bit longer. I don't know when I'll emerge from this pattern, but I know I will at some point.

If you pray, please pray for me. If not, that's alright. Just thanks for listening and faithfully following my work, no matter how little of it I manage to churn out.

Again, I'm sorry for the absence. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things soon.

For those of you who stick around to enjoy my work, I appreciate you. You guys are awesome.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a Christian and have no regret in saying it. All of my hope is in God, for He is the only one who truly knows who I am.

I'm a self taught artist, which means I've only grown by studying other artists styles and then applying what I learn in my own work. I try to be well rounded in my art. Writing is my passion, but drawing, music, photography, and film-making are things I enjoy as well. My gallery speaks for me on these matters so please take a look.

I'm a good listener, a reckless dreamer, and a little on the quiet side.

I have an incredible appreciation for art in every form. Art is creation, and creation is beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by.

Why is it when I lay my head to rest
I can't seem to close my eyes
Right now, my life is such a mess
It should come as no surprise

I've built my defenses up so high
I don't even know why I try
I am broken down, at best
My whole existence feels like some kind of test

(So I will build these walls
Until no one can see me at all
I guard my heart so it won't fall
Piece by piece, and stone by stone
Until I feel so small
Safe and sound within these walls)

It may seem I'm secure in myself
Putting on this great facade
But underneath the surface of my shell
I'm afraid and I am flawed

I've built my defenses up so high
If only to hide the tears I cry
Cause I am broken down, at best
No one can hear my silent request

(Chorus)

Now I see these boundaries are so tall
I thought it was going well
I can't climb, I can barely even crawl
to escape my personal prison cell

(Can someone break these walls
Can anyone answer my calls
I'm so afraid that it won't fall
Please tear it down, stone by stone
So I can see it all
So I can live beyond this wall

Let it fall...

I'm very happy with how this one turned out.

*EDIT*
Here's the link to the video on youtube if you're curious about the melody. www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVSGKb… The video is fairly long by I would love to hear feedback.

Only You

Barely breathing
Holding the shadows
as if they'll show me the light
Always searching
for something to satisfy
to bring me back to life
When will I learn it always ends in tragedy?
I can no longer justify this fallacy

(Only you can save me from my myself
Only you can fill this empty space inside
I've gone and put myself through a living hell
Heaven knows how hard I tried
Now I look to only you
to see me through)

Darkness sees me
harboring secrets
that only it can tell
I get this feeling
of infinite doubt I,
know it all too well
When will I learn that fighting only weakens me?
This pain that I feel has brought me to my hands and knees

(Chorus)

Oh, I know I cannot do this on my own
I see now, you're the only way I can atone

(Chorus)

Songs, songs, and more songs. My musical side doesn't seem to be suffering from lack of creativity lately as with everything else.
