5 (who?)
I used to be able to
explore every crevasse in my mind
weave dreams into reality,
create universes with a blink of the eye,
live a million lives and possibly more.
But now all I can do is sit and think
"I used to..."
My hands won't work,
my mind won't see,
and my muse speaks in a foreign tongue.

This me,
is nothing but a cracked silhouette
of my older self.
The reminders and scars of the past
the trials and pain life brings
the fear and expectations of the future  
Put a stop to all I have done.
and made me realize
I am not who I was anymore.

I used to, I used to, I used to.
I can't do, I can't do, I can't do.
I used to never think about what I couldn't do.
I used to reach my goals.
I used to be who I was
because I never focused on who I wasn't.

I am who I am now,
because of the words "I used to".
I am blinded.
I am a fool.
I have failed.
Because I failed to learned from my failure.

But now I finally see.
I still have the time and will
to be able to do what I used to
and make it better
To begin something new.
Something that's not "what I used to",
but what I can do.
I can be someone who I used to
want to be.
Eh, I wanted to submit something for the end of the year, so have this poem thing I wrote a few weeks ago. Sorry if it sounds really confusing (have fun reading it out loud, hehe).

I've kinda been stuck in a rut for a while. I noticed that my projects and motivation have pretty much gotten worse over the years. I'm sure I'm not the only one that goes through this art block or whatever, and since I couldn't express this frustration visually, I figured words would a good a substitute as any. So yeah. I'll probably incorporate this into an actual project when I get the motivation. OTL

2012 You troll of a year, good riddance!!! (And fuck you, I survived, hehe >:3)

Do NOT use without my permission!

There's a lot people don't expect about me.
And if you looked through my gallery, especially the "writing" folder, you'd think otherwise.
