College Student -- Future Engineer -- Hopeless Romantic

just a 20 year old girl trying to find her way through life one mistake at a time.

i love all types of art. traditional art is my favorite but digital art is a close second. i'm addicted to watercolors. crocheting is now my favorite pastime. oh, and poetry. yeah, if you haven't already noticed it's kinda important to me. losing it would be like losing an arm. or a leg. not a foot though.

there shouldn't be anything else you need to know but feel free to drop me note anytime. i'm always here to talk.

I saw this tag on my friend TheyCallMeLoud's journal. It looked cool and I was bored so I gave it a shot. Feel free to try it yourselves in the comments if ya want. I'd love to see what y'all come up with. :D

Other news:
 
1) Yes my actual name is Crystal. Yes I've gone by Jade here on dA for the past 3 years. I just felt like my name shouldn't be some big secret anymore. Call me Crystal. Call me Jade. Call me Sassy Bitchtron 3000. I don't care tbh. Actually don't call me that last one. That's just weird. :XD:
2) I am sooooooooo ready for Thanksgiving Break. I think I've finally reached my breaking point as my stress levels from my college courses have skyrocketed. This break will be the perfect time for my to regroup and de-stress. 
3) I registered for my spring classes and they suuuuuuuck. Well they classes themselves don't suck, I'm gonna be doing cool shit like fluid mechanics and differential calculus but the hours and work load blows. Oh well that's becoming an engineer for ya. ;)
4) I've felt very stagnant lately. Just between my college obligations and a lot of unwanted, high strung emotions I feel like I've settled into a weird place. BUT! I think that I can get out of this funk with your help. So....
5) SEND ME YOUR LIT LOVE! Send me all the pieces you've been raving over lately. Send me prompts. Could be anything. I really wanna write some experimental pieces. Hit me up for collabs. I've never done one but I think it'd be AWESOME to do one. I'd really like to get to know all you beautiful beautiful writers out there better. :love:


:heart: SO SEND ME STUFF PWEASE! :heart:

:rose: Until next time lovelies~

So I did a thing. I actually did TWO things. 

Naked: 
soundcloud.com/believe-in-me-3…

If I Could Go Back In Time:
soundcloud.com/believe-in-me-3…
it all started with a hello that
came fl-fl-flittering from
my quivering, adolescent lips

and then we
[tum]
         b
            l
              e
                 d
into a hypersonic
oblivion were me melted together
in a symphonic mix
of words and the distilled
inks of dead poets.

we g r e w and glowed
and slowly we (I)
fell deeper into
uncharted waters that
made my bones grow cold
and my heart
drown with antic-


-pation.

when you offered to
show me the very galaxies that
swirled in my faltering irises,
when you splayed
your fingers against
my spine and urged me
toward the dancing
constellations
with your soft willow-whispers
against my foolish ears
I…
I…
I…

panicked

scared, I dashed away
like a frightened
lamb in the eyes
of God,
leaving your arms
empty and
quaking
while my heart
screamed bloody
murder from within
my rusted prison
ribs.



I saw you today, but
the smile in my eyes
was hiding the tears
that silently fill my
saltwater lungs
because
I love[d] you
but you’ll never
know.
if I could go back in time
full title: if I could go back in time I’d tell you I loved you

wow, two poems today, what is this madness?
