so nice to have you
mother, as I watched you
wandering in your haze:
did you see me? know me?

overpriced coffee in hand -
everything is awesome

The Wolf on the Hill (Revised)In a little old house on a little old hill,The Wolf on the Hill (Revised) by alphabetsoup314
With the dead black trees and eerie chill,
They say there lived a monstrous wolf pup
That huffed, and puffed, then gobbled kids up.
Three little boys - what a brave young team!
No big bad wolf, no matter how mean,
Could ever scare them - no, not today!
With a huff, and a puff, they made their way.
The first boy stood, staring in the maw
of gaping darkness; it gave him pause.
Like straw in the wind, his nerve gave way
With a huff, and a puff, and flew away
Boy number two, he wanted his kicks,
Throwing tough words and throwing big sticks;
But once he heard that ghostly wail,
With a huff, and a puff, he turned his tail.
Now the last young boy, though things looked grim,
He stilled the quivers of his chinny chin chin;
Feet planted firm as a big brick wall,
With a huff, and a puff, he stood up tall.
And, alas! He found nothing there;
Just an old kitty cat with greying hair.
Seeing there was nothing to be scared about,
With a huff, and a puff, he l

it will taste of blood
the burn of coffee
is what keeps me awake
sleep is a poison

freckles on floors
and dimples in bricks
are similar to the ones
on your cheeks.

Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough by tamaraR
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee
