    Reviews, comments, and just plain murder of my new piece Brickbats and Backhanded Compliments would be greatly appreciated! :)

  • This is long, but it's important to me that I share this

    A quick reminder that the people you surround yourselves with do have an impact on you as a person. To prove this I'll be the one to say that last semester and the beginning of this one, I sat with a group of boys who were just terrible. They would constantly degrade women, people of other races, and even special needs kids. Now, of course I wouldn't laugh at any of their jokes and I would try to stand up for people when I had the strength, but that wasn't enough. It got tiring day after day, trying to explain things to them. December and January were the scariest months for me because, I'll admit, I started thinking like them. A thought would pop into my head and I would immediately regret it. It's like I could taste how disgusting I was thinking and acting, and I knew it had been coming, that's the thing. I have heard my whole life the quotes like "Bad company corrupts good character" and "You can't keep a clean reputation hanging out with messy people." but I never, ever believed that it would apply to me. The hate that my thoughts expressed led me to hate myself, and I started to believe that I deserved that hate.
    This week, I finally got the courage to get up and move to a different table. I'm not happy that I wasn't able to stop them, and I'm definitely not happy knowing that they're going to continue with the way they talk about people and other topics, but I am happy that even though it took time, I got out. Those boys made me think things that I would have never have if I wouldn't have sat with them. Sure at the start I made the wrong choice, but you can't go back in time to change your choices. You can however, put in effort to make them right and do the right thing. I am deeply sorry for the things I thought, they were evil and bitter, and if I would have said them out loud the people around me would have expressed such distaste that I hope they would have seen that something inside me had changed.
    Please, put good people in your life. People who make you laugh and people who not only encourage you but encourage others as well.

    ~You'll get lost along the way but you can always turn around, Electra.

    Do dignity and me rhyme? I've used two different sites and one says yes and one says no, could you give a short explanation too? I'm just really confused.


    Holysocks I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Could you repeat the question? c:

    ChieTheWriter @Holysocks I think it means rhyming like in a poem.

    a. first line that ends with me
    b. random text of poem here blah
    a. line that goes with the first dignity

    So I am thoroughly confused about couplets. I always see them as:

    A
    A

    and that's it but can you make them as long as you want, as in:

    A
    A

    B
    B

    C
    C

    and so on? Or do you just leave it as the two? Sorry if this doesn't make any sense whatsoever and I didn't really know where to ask it so I'm just gonna shout into the void and hope for the best.


    Morrigan A couplet is a single pair of lines ending in the same rhyme. But you can make a poem out of a bunch of couplets. That's what I was taught, anyway.

    ElectraHeart @Morrigan That makes a lot of sense, it´s just one of those things that easily confuses me! Thank you for helping me :)

    If anyone ever needs to talk, I'm here for you guys. I know what it's like to go through some things, and even if I don't know exactly what it is I can try my best to understand. I love you all, even if you've never seen me on this site, I would love to try and help you out.

    ~Stay healthy, Electra.

  • Hope all of you are having a great day! Keep your head up and make it worth while. Do something that will make not only you smile but also someone else.

    ~Happiness is contagious, Electra


    Love Rock on, yo! :D

    Love yourself with your whole heart. Not 1/3 or half, but all. You deserve that. I don't want to see love in fractions, I want to see it consume you, eat you whole.

    ~Radiate love, Electra


    MandlynProductions I am not sure how you love yourself with a large muscle which pumps blood to all your blood in your body. I don't want to be a jerk but I am just asking.

  • You can be selfish, sometimes it's important that you are. You need to put yourself first sometimes and you need to know that you're important. If you don't, take a day and be selfish, relish in the fact that you are great and can do great things. Sometimes to be self accepted, you have to be selfish.

    ~Love, Electra

  • You decide how your day is going to go, remain positive and happy. Smile a big old grin to everyone and make them a little happy too. I want to tell you all to make it a great day as often as I can.

    ~Love you all, Electra

  • I hope everyone is having a great day. Remember to look up to the clouds and smile, because clouds are so very great and so are you!

    ~Much love, Electra

  • I'm going to pick myself up. Piece by piece I will fix what you tore apart, I will fix me. I will be happy again, I will smile and have peace. I'll take a chance and talk to that boy who looks like he'll respect me. Piece by piece, I will build up layers to myself. I will start to be more comfortable in my skin, and I will love myself before I love anyone else. You may have torn me apart, but I will always remember where the pieces of my puzzle go, because I will always remember me, and you can't take that away.

  • This is your daily reminder that you are great, and that today you can do great things. You're gonna ace that test, you'll do a great interview with that job. That story/poem/song/whatever, you're writing is so good, keep it up. All that homework you have for school, you're gonna do your best, and that's gonna be enough. That smile that should be on your face, that looks so good on you, please keep it there. You feel sad/depressed/anxious/agitated, I promise you it'll get better. People being mean to you, ignore them, you're the bomb. Anyone saying you're not good enough, tell them that I said you are. Take a deep breath and close your eyes, now dive deep into this day. Because this is your daily reminder that this is your day, so cease it.

    He leaned over, his lips gracing the top of my ear. It´s a feeling I remember all too well, the softness enough to make you want more. ¨Are you ready to go?¨

    Such a simple question, with such an easy answer. But did I want to answer at all? Did I want to leave or did I want to stay? But before I could think anything through, the word rolled off my tongue like a knife on soft butter. ¨Yes.¨ This one word, it ended my life. I exited my body and watched as my old skin turned waxy, my old lips turned so pale they were almost white. Maybe all those years I wanted to die, all I really needed was to see the affect.

    Because now more than anything, all I wanted to do was to live. I wanted to tell him no, that I needed to stay. That I wasn´t ready to go. But now was too late, and the past was only a moment ago. But when you make a choice, it can erase your future. We show it as something lovely in movies and books, we tell them it will not work, but as soon as it does we realize we shouldn´t have dressed it up. But what do we do a month after the funeral, we go back to saying it´s something glorious, and that someone will save you.

    But you need to realize, once is enough to kill you. One try can erase you forever. One try and you never see that baby you wanted to grow up to have, you never get married, you never have that job you wanted so bad. Once is enough, and if we don´t wake up, once will kill us all.

    Some days, it´s going to flat out suck. There really is no other way to say it. But trust me, there will still be days where it doesn´t. You will have days where you will be smiling and having such a great time that you´re going to forget all about the thing that´s hurting you. I speak from experience. No, not everyday is perfect, but yes every bad day will have a great one to make up for it.

  • You deserve happiness, love, and wondrous things. But you also are going to get sadness, hate, and terrible moments. All these things come and go, but if you choose the to focus on the right things, you can be immortal.
