The trees have dropped their draping leaves,
The clouds have dropped their snow.
The roads have winded loops into our path and misled us where to go.

Enough empty promises have bored into our skulls,
Enough white lies to was away our sins.
Enough hearts have been broken here to help me up and begin.

Don't apologize!
I'm the one who painted white, painted clean all of our lies.


Your ears have heard my fallen whispers,
Your eyes have cried my tears,
Your hands have felt the aging touch of mine along these years.

But I'm not snowblind yet...

Don't apologize,
I'm the one who painted white, painted clean all of our lies.

I want to hold your shaking fingers again,
I want your head resting upon my shoulder,
I want to wrap my arms around you again and try to keep you from getting colder...

Colder, colder, hold me, snowblind...

I know that I don't belong,
I know you won't sing my song...
At least let me hold me your shaking fingers, and tell you you're not wrong.

No wrong, colder, hold me, snowblind...

Where do you go when there's nothing white anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing right anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing white anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing right anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing white anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing right anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing white anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing right anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing white anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing right anymore?
Where do you go when there's nothing white...

Where do you go when there's nothing left?

Accept the dissonance!

Don't apologize,
I'm the one who painted white, painted clean all your little...
Don't you realize?
I'm the one who saw through this, saw through all our painted little lies.

Well, I actually have a viable excuse for my time away from DA this time. I was overseas to visit family. We were meant to be back by the 2nd of January, but our travel agents messed up the departure times for the plane we were meant to be on, so... We had to wait for the next flight where we could all come back together. That happened to be three weeks later, considering that we were already over there for three weeks. So yeah, six weeks away from home... in another home. Man, it's hard having two homes and one heart...

UPDATE: Welp, one can only put up fake smiles for so long. I've recently had to accept and digest two separate heartbreaking catastrophes, and I'm trying my utmost best to not let either of them break me. I must say talking to my friends here have been the most comforting for me, and "thank you" doesn't really cut how much I appreciate your presence and support. You guys are simply the best. :)

--------------------------------------
Now that that's out of the way, let's have some fun. ;p

Because of my stupid absence, I've missed out on replying to a ton of messages by you guys and I'm trying my best to reply to all of them. One of the little things in my message inbox had really intrigued me so I'm going to give a shot at doing it. Yep, I'm doing a tag journal. Thank you StarlightShoals for the tag. You're awesome! Also to those who are tagged in this... I'm sorry, but I missed you, and this is how I express it. ;P

(Fair warning: if you're not a fan of metal or any of its harsher sub-genres, I'd recommend you brace yourself, should you choose to listen, for the tracks with this asterisk:*)

Rules: 
1) Write down every letter in your name (You can use your username if you're not comfortable using your real one)
2) Write down a song that pops into your head beginning with each letter.
3) Count the number of letters and TAG that many people.

A - And Justice for All / Metallica*
(I've pretty much grown up listening to these guys, so I'm starting off with them)


B - Breaking The Habit / Linkin Park
(Not metal, I know. What's wrong with me? ;p)


R - Reverence - Living In The Heart / Epica*
(It's symphonic metal so the melody's really sweet, but the riffs are brutal, so fair warning)


A - The Accolade /Symphony X
(Technically, this isn't metal... this band puts an amalgamation of genres into their music, and metal is just one of them. But this song is like a gentle blend of symphonic, neo-classical, and progressive rock.) 


R - Rainmaker / Iron Maiden
(I'd put an asterisk on this, but the song is amazing. Besides, would you really count a NWOBHV band as harsh? ;p)


A - Another Day / Dream Theater
(One of the best songs by one of the best bands in the world, nuff said.)


H - Hearts Burst Into Fire / Bullet For My Valentine*
(Probably one of the softest songs you're gonna hear on this list, it's still pretty hard so... fair warning)  


M - Monuments / Carina Round
(Don't let the creepy album art fool you. This song is gentle and actually quite catchy. :D)


E - Elegy / Leave's Eyes (ANOTHER symphonic metal song!? I'm sorry, I'm probably going through my symphonic phase... :shrug: PS: I know, the video is really cheesy. Just enjoy the music. ;p)


D - Dread And The Fugitive Mind / Megadeth*
(Ending the list with an Omega than contradicts the Alpha. And if you get the musical reference here, kudos to you. ;))


And with the power invested in me by the rules of this tag journal, I hereby tag the following:

Welp... Enjoy!
I
I've stayed far too long
With these tired hands
Buried under shifting sands

My sky sifts through inverted catacombs
Draining into an ever turning hourglass
I can no longer seem to control

Help me surpass!

I must surpass...
I must suppress my inner hell
I must undo whatever my inner Cassandra foretells

But I will fight
I will see this through till I find light
Don't tell me the shadow's here
My destiny is now ever clear
I will work this machine till I have nowhere left to...

My
My mind lies closed
While my heart lies an open book
The contents of which I once forsook

My earth rises through inverted funnel clouds
Spiraling through an ever changing compass
I never had control over

Help me surpass!

I must surpass...
I must suppress my inner hell
I must undo whatever my inner Cassandra foretells

But I will fight
I will see this through till I find light
Don't tell me that the shadow's here
My destiny is now ever clear
I will work this machine till I have nowhere left to hide

I'll push it through
I'll push it past the walls and start anew
Don't tell me it's too hard for me
My eyes can now clearly see
I won't stop this battle until I know I fought for you

The lives we live are merely experience
The sights we see are merely light
What we perceive is what we are conditioned to comprehend through nurture
But what we surpass is only what we challenge
What we surpass...

Help me surpass!

I must surpass...
I must suppress my inner man
I must prevent whatever I do not yet understand...

Please help me suppress my inner machine!

But I will fight
I will see this through till I find light
Don't tell me that the shadow's here
My destiny is now ever clear
I will work this machine till I have nowhere left to...

But I still fight
I won't end this search till I find light
Don't tell me that the shadow's here
My destiny is now ever clear
I will work this machine till I have nowhere left to hide

I'll push it through
I'll push it past the walls and start anew
Don't tell me it's too hard for me
My eyes can now clearly see
I won't stop this battle until I know I fought for you

I know I fought for you
I know you're the one who helped me push it through
You didn't tell me I was wrong
You gave me what made me strong
I know I can't stumble on my path
On my path for you
Because I...
Because I won for you

I've been far too negligent of my writing. I'll try to submit more writing more often now that I have more time on m hands. :)

Sorry for the bad photo-ish quality. I couldn't scan it without having the light erase the shiny look in her hair. Not that it's prominent anyway...

Yeah, I know I haven't been here for a pretty long time. I'm really sorry if I kept any of you guys waiting. I had my final exams for college and I really had to dive into studying. Next year hopefully the study load would be much less, but I doubt it's going to leave me too much time to allow me to get on DA. I just wanted to say that I'm back. Can't promise for how long, but I'm definitely back.

My icon was made by :iconno-aengel:. Visit their page. Check out their gallery. Drop a favebomb, comment, llama etc. I'd appreciate it. :D

My real name is a secret. My given name is unknown. My taken name is Leech.

I have a daemon who hasn't chosen her animal yet.

I am a demigod, but Hermes doesn't accept me.

Well...where do I start. I've been drawing as far as my memories reach back. I think I was 5, but I'm not sure. Out of drawing in spare time at home and school, I kind of got attached to art. It kind of clung on to me, as if it'll never let go. I let it stay, it steadily gradually grew and it turned into passion and it still grows...

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
