Ashes: Forever

It's a different kind of panic
When last resorts are no longer a choice
 Invisible infernos become an epidemic 
Taking me far past the breaking point

It's beyond right or wrong
For someone to endure these moments
It's a cruel sensation to become undone
And to be left alone to face the on-coming carnage
Ashes burn / Hopes condemned
Ashes burn
/ Life's lament

Ashes fall / Reaping shame
Ashes fall / Forgiveness fades

Piece by piece- No cure for the cursed
Belief after belief- No relief for the impure

Tear by tear- No rain for the inflamed
Prayer after prayer- No shelter for the estranged

Ashes scatter / Memories freed
Ashes scatter / Serenity released

Ashes rest / Never mourn
Ashes rest / No return
It's neither an ending nor a beginning
When life and death trade names
It's just a cycle, never ending
The wheels of fate

I've been broken down
My time is over
The earth is my resting place now
My ashes shall remain here forever
Ashes: Forever
Burn away the pain
Break away the hate

Ignite the tainted light
Destroy my unnatural life

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.

Natural Is Worth While

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 10, 2014, 1:46 PM

Lately, I have had countless inner conflictions. If it's not natural, then it's not supposed to happen. Forcing something to happen is not genuine. Something that is not genuine is not going to last as long as one would like. Natural choice will lead to a natural decision. Natural decision will lead to a natural change, and a natural change will lead to a natural emotion. I'm trying to just strive for a natural emotion. I need a genuine emotion now. I can't feel it if it isn't genuine. It's difficult for me to settle for anything less than genuine. Persuasion and seduction are tools of force in my eyes. I shouldn't have to persuade anyone for anything to happen.

Something natural is bound to last longer than something that was forced to happen.

I had this....person ask me a question, sternly. "Eric, are you ready to get respect?"

Me: Do you want an honest answer?
??: Yes, of course.
Me: I don't seek respect. Not anymore.
??: Why is that?
Me: Seeking respect just isn't for me anymore. I will accept respect whenever it comes to me naturally.
Me: I shouldn't have to prove myself to anyone to gain respect. Proving myself is a form of persuasion.
Me: Natural respect is genuine respect. Genuine respect will last longer than respect where I forced a person to see a certain side of me that demanded it.
Me: I will only ever act as myself. If that genuine side of me gains respect, then it was meant to be.
