I dont look like this anymore ^

I dont look like anything anymore.


Frame the snapshot perfectly. Your worth in acolytes.
Filter fogged photos, albums full - hunger defines your life.
Can never quite solve the puzzle;
Cant fill that broken glass.
Sad to see your soul still slander - some gold for the fool at last.

Fervent is your spectacle. So saturated, so frivolous.  
Fuck your storied facade. Your satiation, your dissonance.
Soggy and fat with forgery,
those songs of fear you sing,
stink from frequent falsehoods, they spoil everything.

 Thanks holly. 
 Ive been trying to get dreamdeep to work on my pc for windows for awhile. Im pretty computer savy and got  through all but the last two steps and cant figure it out. This is super cool. Thanks a ton. 

            Hope youve enjoyed some of the new pieces ive made over the last few years.

                           Despite everything, im glad we are still friends, in whatever abstract sense.

 Much love to you, your current life partner and your kids. Tell them i say hello. <3  

 (Also, i may have responded to some of your comments as other comments on the piece instead of replys to you directly. I have a nasty habit of doing that. )

Ben, you don't have to put it on your computer. I actually just did it online at:

It may take a week to get your images though!

Thanks for the hellos! I send hellos back to you and yours (despite the probable animosity) and I hope life is getting better and better for you!

Keep up the good work and stay in touch! 😊

Oh cool! 

 No.. no animosity at all. Not anymore. I was hoping that i made that clear.
     We have always been such strong friends. : ) 

            Thanks, things are going well for me, have a job with this old hippy dude making artificial marble out of plaster. Its a dieing art called "Scagliola"

      Thanks for the comments on my work. You keep it up too!

Happy birthday, my friend!! :3 I wanted to try to do something for you but I really had no idea what to make for you ^^; So I will extend my heartfelt good wishes to you and hope that they're enough! :3

Of course they are! thanks a ton! 

    I had a great birthday. Glad you said hello. : P

Haha, no problem :3  I'm glad you had an awesome day!
IAmFandomHearMeRoar Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
So, this is probably going to come across as weird haha, but I'll go for it. Have you ever just looked at somebody or read their words and thought, "I think we should be friends"?
Because I think we should be friends :3 If this is creepy and you're not up for it, that's fine ^^ but your art and your poetry are showing me a personality that's pretty similar to mine, so I figured I'd give it a shot :3
slakajuster Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Of course we can be friends! 

 I agree with some of your gripes with religion, and i already like some of your content. There is nothing creepy about trying to forge new friendships. ^ ^ 

        Im really glad you like my content as well, i find it hard to get feedback here on DA and pretty much everywhere on the internet surprisingly.

 I think its just because the stuff i make doesn't play to any niche or genre. I sometimes wish i was more inspired by every day things so that this wasn't the case.  

Sometimes i feel like a very simple person, sometimes i feel like a very complex person.

Yeah, I definitely like your stuff!  It's not your run-of-the-mill cookie-cutter art and I think that's part of what I like so much about it.  Have you tried posting any of it in groups?  That's a good way to get some exposure.  It felt like selling out to me the first time I did it haha, but I realized if I wait for people to just see it, there's too much stuff on DA for them to sort through ^^

I completely understand that feeling though!  I don't think I'm that hard to understand or get along with, and the things I want are simple, but I'm a weird mashup of traits that don't go together (stubborn, laid-back, excitable, etc.) so it's hard to explain my personality ^^
