"So Mr. Sherlock Holmes, how would you describe your level of pain right now, on a scale of one to ten?" John suppressed a groan. He found this method a little absurd himself, and if he was slightly cynical, he knew he'd better brace himself for Sherlock's reaction. "And how, precisely, does one quantify pain into ten categories? What's a one? What constitutes a ten?" "Think of one as no pain at all, and ten the worst pain you can imagine." "But the worst pain I can imagine is by no means the worst pain possible. And it's all in perception. When one stubs one's toe, for about thirty seconds that is the worst pain imaginable. But someone on the brink of, say, burning to death would view things rather differently."

Food, sleep, and money are necessary evils

“You have to understand that there are people out there who need you. You are robbing us all by keeping yourself in the shadows.”

"I'm not even sure what I'm doing with my time recently.
Every hour just kind of smears into the next one.
Maybe i'm spending too much time thinking. that's probably it."

Sometimes happiness lies in making do with what we have!

Try again, fail again.
Try again, fail better.

Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine.

I keep thinking I'll fall--
And I may--
But I haven't yet.

They tell me hurt is like a paper cut: quick and forgotten.
They're wrong.

Every day when I wake I tell myself that it will be my last.
If you are not trying to hold on to time,
you are not so afraid of losing it.
And then, if you make it to bedtime,
you feel the joy of cheating death out of one more day.
Do you see?

Hope, there are times it will be very hard to find.
Time when it will be much easier to choose hate instead.
But if you want to find peace, you must first be able to hope it is possible.

What is your weapon of choice?
Words. The right words will stick in the mind for a long time. My fists, however are a very close second.

Oldest trick in the book is often in there because it usually works.

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

You can do it...if you put your mind to it.

It doesn't matter how you look.
What does matter, is how you think, speak, and act.

one of us is not as smart as all of us.

They say that no one is perfect. They say practice makes perfect.
I wish they'd just make up their minds.…

Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I'll miss you
Until we meet again!

Absence from whom we love is worse than death,
and frustrates hope severer than despair.

A little girl with big eyes
and two missing teeth still unpaid for
wonders how many other little children
with big dreams
that monsters weren't real
and woke up tonight

Can miles truly separate you from friends....
If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?

Be patient; the plot in your life will unfold soon enough.

Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.

It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm
inside because you're close in heart.

Leaves from the Vine
Falling so Slow
Like Fragile, Tiny Shells
Drifting in the Foam
Little Soldier Boy
Comes Marching Home
Brave Soldier Boy
Comes Marching Home...

The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while,
leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.

Absence diminishes little passions and increases great ones, as the wind
extinguishes candles and fans a fire.

Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

The best things said come last. People will talk for hours saying nothing much and
then linger at the door with words that come with a rush from the heart.

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way,
that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it,
without knowing what's going to happen next.

Goodbye, goodbye, I hate the word.
Solitude has long since turned brown and withered,
sitting bitter in my mouth and heavy in my veins.

Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further
from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.

Never part without loving words to think of during your absence.
It may be that
you will not meet again in this life.

If my words are have no meaning
can you hear them?
If my thoughts have no reason
can you understand them?

Do the right thing. It will gratify some and astonish the rest.

Celebrate the right to be yourself.

courage is daring to take that first step to place your dreams above your fears.

attitudes are like ripples in the water. they spread.

all things are difficult before they are easy. Never, never quit.

success is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

the speed of the leader determines the rate of the pack.

build what you can with what you have where you are.

All of your dreams will come true, if you have the courage to chase them.

You know you love someone when the songs that used to remind you of your unhappy ending,
make you smile because you finally figured out that it was just the darkness before the dawn

I run away and make you chase me because I love it when you kiss me out of breath

Life isn't fair! Anyone who says differently is selling something.

I accept responsibility for my actions, I just don't accept responsibility for your stupidity.

Problem solving requires an addictive and stubborn personality.

We have an expression around here for 'almost late' It's called on time!

Dadd - Dads against daughters dating.
Shoot the first one and the word will spread.

Sometimes I question my sanity. occasionally, it replies.

Going through the motions doesn't matter,
if you do not believe in what they represent.

Maybe everything is temporary.
Maybe we should stop looking for forever,
because we're never going to find it.

If you can't laugh at yourself, I'll do it for you.

I don't hold grudges, I remember facts.

It's okay if you disagree with me, I can't force you to be right.

I'd tell you to go to hell, but I work there and I don't want to see you every day.

An apple a day will keep anyone away if thrown hard enough.

My headphones are in. Stop talking to me.

The only love you knew was the kind that always died, and you didn't want that for me--
so you took yourself away.

To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten.

Anger is like holding a hot coal with the intention of throwing it at someone else.
You are the one who gets burned.

"In the river of life, anger is like a rock, disturbing the flow and blocking our way."
"How does one get rid of the rock?"
"You tell me. If you are in the river and the rock you carry is pulling you down, what do you do?"
"You let go."
"Yet when we carry that anger as a shield, we fear letting go. Anger may carry us through the heat of the battle, but in the long run it does not sustain us, it eats away all the good that is in our lives."

I learned a long time ago that the last thing any woman should be thinking about is being ‘skinny’ or ‘thin.’ To me, those words imply weakness, fragility, the inability to stand firm in a storm. If you want to change your body, aim for ‘athletic.’ An athletic body is healthy, strong, and built to thrive. An athletic body can take many shapes.

Falling and fading, like diamond drops in a sea of sand and ghosts.

I don't know where you got your sense of humor, but it's defective, and you need to send it back."

The only certainties in life are death and taxes

My whole life I was searching for a place where I belonged. A Home.
I only realize now that I have already found one.

Speak little, listen much.

Unless you get smart really fast, I'm going to put my shoe so far up your ass,
you'll be using the tongue of my shoe to talk.

I said sit down! If I have to sit you down, you won't be getting back up on your own.

Drop your weapon, or I will drop you.

Every morning is a new chance at life. We need to greet it properly with the respect it deserves.

Don't apologize, it's a sign of weakness.

She babbles when she's afraid, but she's silent when she's terrified.

It is hard to fill the head if the stomach is empty.

Yeah, Goku's got a talent for making friends. It makes up for Sanzo's being a curmudgeon.

It wasn't blackmail, it was aggressive negotiations.

He's a smarmy bastard on the best days, and a Grade A asshole on the worst.

Sometimes you cannot escape people in sleep because sleep escapes you.

If she's amazing, she won't be easy. If she's easy, she won't be amazing.
If she's worth it, you won't give up. If you give up, you're not worthy...
Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.

Stars: Bright enough to eliminate the dark and illuminate the world.

Just because a sword is a beautiful, glittering object of honor doesn't mean it always has an honorable purpose.

You are damaged and broken and unhinged. But so are shooting stars and comets.

For every single boy who counts the stars, there's a girl wishing upon them

Well, I thought you were smart.

If you hate hard enough you might actually hurt yourself sweetheart.

Today's moments are tomorrows memories.

My fears come second to my loyalty.

When she makes a point, pencils become dangerous weapons.

Infinite diversity in infinite variations

I would live with you, and I would die for you,
just don't make me live without you.

If I find within myself a desire which nothing in the world can satisfy, the only probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.

"I want to watch the sun rise."
"But…the sunrise was an hour ago."
"Have you learned nothing?
Until noon, the sun is always rising."

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

Face it sweetheart, we're on our own.

Angel wings cast quite dark shadows.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
"Its drink or drown, horse. Decide."

"I'll intimidate him!"
"...with a spoon?"

"Not for long."

"Can we fly?"
"We can jump."

She said she'd love him forever.
...Forever never lasts long, does it?

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did wrong. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things.
They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Without music, life would be a mistake.

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, which is why we call it the present.

If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

I love mankind ... it's people I can't stand!!

I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door
that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

You're as unique as it is unusual for water to be wet.

Sometimes I think you tried to destroy yourself before someone else could do it.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.

Professional amateur, dedicated procrastinator, best friend of the odd and quirky
and knower of the meanings of words like "catharsis."

Failing's just like flying, except there's a more permanent destination

"I'm being serious."
"That's why I'm laughing."

Writers will always find inspiration in the visions of artists,
feeling compelled to tell the stories behind the artists' unforgettable images
Just as artists will always find inspiration in the words of writers,
always feeling compelled to lend visual reality and habit
to the characters described in the scribes haunting words.

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.

Practice doesn't make perfect,
Practice makes permanent.
Perfect practice makes perfect.

Sing like no one's listening

This could all be a dream, but it's a dream that will continue on day after day without me ever wanting to wake up. I had reached heaven; only I didn't have to die to get there. I just had to live.

We're the generation of broken hearts
because we've never allowed ourselves to live.

I don't understand why
people are so afraid of monsters,
if monsters have always lived inside your head.

Sometimes the person you'd take a bullet for
is the one behind the trigger.

My dog is my best friend

Just this side of insane

He who makes a beast out of himself,
gets rid of the pain of being a man

You should not take everything I say to heart. I find anger a more comfortable emotion than fear,
even when nothing has been done that is worthy of reproach.

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you.

We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.

Inexperience can be overcome, ignorance can be corrected,
but prejudice will destroy you.

A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom. He has no master except his own soul, and that, I am sure, is why he does it

Two hours of writing fiction leaves the writer completely drained.
For those two hours he has been in a different place with totally different people.

A little magic can take you a long way.

Good morning starshine the earth says hello....

We all have our moments of brilliance and glory, and this was mine.

All you do is to look,
At a page in this book,
Because that's where we always will be.
No book ever ends,
When it's full of your friends

DeviantArt is my second home

I fav and run because I can't describe how amazing your art is

All emotes are my friends

Give a smile a day and your day wasn't wasted

I really like stamps.
Just warning you

I still believe in magic

People say time heals all wounds, I don't agree. There are some things time cannot cure.
Some pains that go too deep. Some sorrows no one can heal. Some wounds too big to mend.

Write when you want to cry

Tonight we dine in hell! Tomorrow, I'm thinking about McDonalds

Stupidity should be painful

People are like Slinkys. They're kind of boring when they just sit there,
but they're really entertaining when you push them down the stairs.

Fantasy is my reality

'Never let them take you alive, knock 'em dead first.

I am a hopeless dreamer... so what?

My life without Emotes would be empty

I stopped fighting my inner demons
we're on the same side now.

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

Be yourself,
everyone else is taken

No man or woman is worth your tears
The one who is won't make you cry

The fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday,
even the calendar says WTF

...the monotony of life, the art of whiling each day away
with trivial acts that mean nothing in the scheme of existence,
of forgetting that each second we live, we are one second closer to dying...

All that glitters is not gold.

*Whacks an old lady with a bag of Skittles* Taste the rainbow, dammit!!!

Reality depresses me. I need to find fantasy worlds and escape in them.

Lord, if we shall fall, my horse and I, please pick my horse up first.

Nightmare Night! What a fright! Give us something sweet to bite.

You remind me of an old friend. She was a twit, just like you!

Cutting, the way a knife loves a heart.

I regret tomorrow more than yesterday

Lyric Poem GameTagged by hopeburnsblue.

How To Play: Put your iPod/iTunes/Spotify/Pandora/music player of some kind on shuffle, and then write the first lyric of each song that comes up. Do this for twenty songs, and you'll create a poem!

NO SKIPPING, you must use whatever song pops up no matter how silly, nonsensical, or embarrassing it makes your poem! And you must use the lyrics in the order they pop on on shuffle.

You can structure the stanzas however you want and add punctuation, or the occasional "and" or "but", but no altering of the lyrics themselves is allowed. You can end up with a pretty interesting little poem!

I'll give this a shot. I'm going to do it a few times, once for my five or so favorite playlists. <3

First is K love, because I'm usually listening to them on the radio.

it don't have a job don't pay your bills
I was lost
What fortune lies beyond the stars
blessed by your name
all of creation
who breaks the power of sin and darkness
sometimes the world feels like a mess
One of these days we all will stand in judgment for
this life is a journey we walk by faith
hey heard you were up all night
This world can be cold and bitter
there's a place where mercy reigns and never dies
oh what I would do to have
all of creation all of the earth
I woke up this morning
lift your head weary sinner
I just let go
I can't believe what she said
Where two or more are gathered in His name
Give me rules I will break them

Second is my Owl City playlist

I stood up and took a breath
glamor and fashion
shipwreck in a sea of faces
I'm tired of waking up in tears
hello Seattle, I'm a mountaineer
wake up in your own room
I stood up and took a breath
I opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low light
the stars lean down to kiss you
High rise, veins of the avenue
I'm moving to Tokyo
We, were alone, on the road, driving faster
We wrote a prelude to our own fairytale.
Please take a long hard look
There was a shot in the dark, I was caught by surprise
Affection, the gifted architect,
Steams and gears, oh, how the daisies bloom
Breathe and I'll carry you away into the velvet sky
There were days when each hour was a war I fought to survive
Stand on up and take a bow

Third is my Mumford and Sons playlist

And after the storm,
You were cold as the blood through your bones
You hold your truth so purely
Cold is the water
Roll away your stone, I'll roll away mine
I will not fall
Spare me your judgements and spare me your dreams
I know the time has numbered my days,
I know that things are broken
As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
I, I can't promise you
It's empty in the valley of your heart
Don't let me darken your door
It came to the end it seems you had heard
You heard my voice I came out of the woods by choice
I am just a poor boy
Weep for yourself, my man,
Serve God love me and men
Rip the earth in two with your mind
Well I came home

Fourth is my Ipod

Fifth is my entire music folder on the computer

god rests in reason
childhoods end
savin me
rumor has it
just a feeling

trying not to love you
good to be alive
teardrops on my guitar
0% interest
you belong with me

lord I need you
hummingbird heartbeat
who needs shelter
paper gangsta

my life would suck without you
bad romance
the grand vizier's garden party
the lord our god

My victims:
Shadow-Cipher ~ Of course you had to be awesome and do it before I even finished. :P

I am going to respond to your note, so don't worry. I just haven't been interested in bringing my notes up as of late. Don't worry. I will respond soon.

Thanks for the watch and the :+fav:!
Crystal-Magic13 Featured By Owner May 31, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
^^; You're welcome for the favorite, but about the watch....
I already had you watched, but then I went though and
deleted all my old watches (I had about 400) so I could
pay better attention to the people I did want to watch,
and I unwatched you by accident and was only re-watching you.
^^; :P
