If you would like a formal critique on one of your pieces, please note :note: me. i would prefer it be poetry, as that would be most along the lines of something i am knowledgeable enough in to thoroughly critique, but i am open to at least attempting any and all styles of art.


Hey All!

I'm a happy-go-lucky kid who spends all of his money on music - mostly the darkest, most esoteric he can find, with occasional piercing rays of sunshine - who constantly feels at ends with his interests and the societies they place him in and who doesn't really feel like he truly belongs anywhere, but is super happy to be right here.

I am currently a Swing (Poetry & Prose) Admin over at DailyLitRecognition. I'm more a poetry guy than a prose by preference of comfortability, but I promise to look at and consider anything and everything suggested to me.

Along with LitRecognition not accepting FanFics or chaptered work, I'm pretty picky about what I feature, but if you come across a piece that blew you away, I wouldn't be surprised if it does the same for me. I'm not much of one for emotional pieces and tend to have a more dark, existential, and modern preference, though there are certainly exceptions to every rule.

So if you come across anything that inspires you, please note me with a link to the piece as well as your reasoning behind why this piece has earned the honor of a DLD (this will greatly increase its chances of being selected) and I'll see what I can do. =D

Reoccurring Nightmare

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 10, 2014, 9:31 AM

I have a dream. In this dream there is no disease, no poverty, nor war; no arguments, no finite resources, nor death. In this dream we live forever.

A modern Utopia - probably on a futuristic Mars long after Earth-born have consumed their home and theirselves.

In this dream there is no balance, no confrontation, no ending. In this dream, I never careen towards the ground accompanying an impending 'jolt' of reality, I just observe - eyes on a billboard - in silence.

I want to have the opportunity to rise above, step with my toes hanging off the precipice. I want to have the opportunity to throw myself from the edge and know that there is meaning to be found in every action. I want to be judged by my actions more than my beliefs or faiths.

I never want to live without the knowledge that I one day will die. I want every moment to have meaning.

You all have meaning, too. Never let yourself fall into the mindset that this life is permanent, no, this life has meaning. You have meaning.

All the best,

The Division Bell

The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes,
nor between parties either—but right through the human heart,
and who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
                    Aleksandr | Solzhenitsyn

It's raining hugs!

No umbrella can withstand the onslaught; I knew I should have worn a bathing suit to work.

You are this week's Star Critic for the Great Lit Crit Event! :la:…

I want a re-vote, I think those ballet-poles were rigged.
LiliWrites Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Votes? This is not a democracy. :evillaugh:
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014
See, I was right, it was rigged. ;p

:tighthug: How are you finding DC?! :eager:
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2014
I know how it's finding me: quite busy.

Besides the 9:00 - 6:00 being full-time employed craziness that I somehow stumbled into, I'm killing myself at Ultimate tryouts for a couple club teams, trying to get out to some shows when I have the freedom (and they're not too expensive), apartment hunting, and then maybe meet people to befriend at some point?

Life's a bit crazy, but it's slowly settling into some semblance of normalcy, I think.

How are you finding the permanently un-single life?
LiliWrites Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
:lol: Way to throw yourself right into the thick of it. :) Busy is good. 

I'm finding it absolutely delightful. :) 
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
Did I also mention I'm teaching myself German?

Lili, what the hell has my life become?
Where was this productivity when I was a young lad, haha.

Thank you so much for the watch! :heart:

It was always just a matter of time.

Your poetry is amazing ;u; 

When did you start writing? :?
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner May 29, 2014
Hey mate, thank you so much.

I started writing poetry almost exactly three years ago.
Leoncio-Harmr Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014   Digital Artist
Oh... And thanks for the watch and favorites of course ! ;)
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014
Sir, to not watch you would have been tragedy. Your art so closely parallels my tastes, that I simply had to keep watching. Plus, I can't wait to discover some new great bands through your page. If it inspired art as tasteful as yours, I can only hope that I can apply it to my own.

All the best, mate!

Alain, I have officially joined you on the DLR team! :nod:

(Dare I say, in an effort to provide more balance? ;P)
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014
I sense a balance... in the force...
