Key To My Heart - Amanda Marie




I had closed the door upon my heart
and wouldn't let anyone in
I had trusted and loved only to be hurt
but that would never happen again
I locked the door and
tossed the key as
hard and as far as I could
My heart was closed for good

Then you came into my life and
made me change my mind
just when I thought that
tiny key was impossible to find
that is when you held out your hand
and proved me wrong
inside your palm was the
Key to My Heart
You had it all along

The Lie - Wikket




Woke up this morning
Trying hard to hide my melancholy
I joined you for breakfast
And we continued our lie

Every day it is similar
You are cheery
And so am I
Our terrible lie

Can you imagine a time
When we awoke and did not speak
Realizing our moods would cause tension
Tension caused by too little life?

I do wish sometimes
As I leave for work sullenly
Dreading the day already
Weeping far within

The lie, terrible and unending
Would cease to be
And I would know the real you
And you the real me

But, the lie drags on for now
For it is not written in the stars
And perhaps it will never be
I am my own companion

The dreaded truth
Gathered in a lifetime
Sentenced for an eternity
Realized too late

The Darkness - Christinia





If only it were so simple,

to cruise through life smelling roses;
but the obstacles blacken the countryside, 
and we unwittingly crush them beneath our boots.

Dreams sustain us through the madness; 

goals give a finish line to our race.
Yet they change with every turn, around every wall,
and remain elusive throughout the quest.

Mistakes are made, and regrets are our luggage;

we will drag them with us to slow us down.
The victories are flashes of light, sudden and unlasting, which allow us
to glimpse the road ahead before darkness descends.

Love is bitter, yet it is the bread that keeps us.

Over and over it fills us up, only to starve us.
The people whom we love shape our destinies and our strengths,
yet leave us cold and alone in the darkness.

There are others trying to race to the end;

occasionally, we bump into one or two.
The bonds we form help us down the path less lonely
but eventually, we lose each other in the darkness.

Alone is not a bad way to be;

it clears your head and focuses you on the journey.
Cherish the short intervals during the quest you have with others,
but be prepared to walk alone in the darkness.

A Book Of Memories - Kathleen Sheppard
















Hidden in the attic,
all the way upstairs,
is something very special,
that I would like to share.

My hopes,
my dreams,
old photographs,
of good times and bad times that make me laugh.

The joy of a hug,
the thrill of a kiss,
leaves me to remember the pure, simple bliss.

I cry for the fun,
and giggle for the pain,
I enjoyed the good life I was able to maintain.

The thoughts and wishes,
they all stay with me,
all of these contained in my book of memories.

My Best Friend - Summer Cates




The summer we met how could I have known
I saw you that first time standing alone
I was new to the crowd and a little bit scared
I needed a friend who really cared
I never thought it would be you who'd come when I was down
I always felt if my life flooded you'd just let me drown

I don't know how it happened,
you were suddenly my best friend
I sat and listened to you cry
Your broken heart I tried to mend

You told me about the girl you loved
I told you be patient to look up above
I said to trust God to really pray
You said that you had, so I prayed everyday

I asked God to guide you and help you to see
I told you you could always depend on me
You got what you wanted but she doesn't treat you right
You both argue and she always starts a fight

One night we were talking about something she'd done
I had known I liked you but then it hit me all in one
Suddenly I knew I loved you more than life itself
and I broke down and cried all by myself

When I finally told you you didn't seem surprised
I stood in front of you drying my eyes
I love you more than words can say
I think about you everyday

You are my best friend and I hate to see you cry
I try to hide my feelings believe me(name) I try
I know I'll never measure up to what you see in her,
she's the luckiest girl I've ever known
But just know you're never on your own
I love you, my best friend

Tâm sự một ngày buồn


 Tôi là Diepzen, và đây là bài blog chính thức đầu tiên của tôi dù đã lập được vài ngày :)

 Ngày hôm nay khá là mệt mỏi khi mà bao nhiêu việc chưa làm ! Cũng phải nghe nhiều điều chướng tai gai mắt! Có lẽ nên viết lên Facebook để có ai đó chia sẻ, nhưng tôi muốn viết ở đây hơn ! Từ hơn một năm qua, khi bạn bè tôi cũng dùng facebook thì những mối quan hệ của tôi đã ít nhiều mất đi yếu tố ảo, bạn bè thật nhiều hơn, đó là 1 điều tốt, nhưng cũng có nhiều chuyện tôi không muốn kể với ai, hay chính xác hơn là không muốn kể với bất kì ai có thể hiểu được chuyện riêng của tôi, đó là lý do tôi phải lặn lội sang blog viết mà không phải là viết 1 cái note rồi set private cho nó !

                                            Như đã nói ở trên !
 Bạn bè trên facebook của tôi bây giờ đa phần là những người quen và người quen của những người quen, nhiều chuyện tôi cũng không muốn người thân quen biết, đơn giản vì ai cũng có bí mật của riêng mình (cái này tôi tin rằng họ sẽ không trách tôi nếu đọc được những dòng này) và.. dần dần khi mà bạn bè đã được thực tế hóa thì tôi lại thu mình làm ảo chính bản thân một cách không thương tiếc ! Trừ những giây phút game vui vẻ, những chiều, tối tán dóc với chúng bạn thân thiết, thì mọi thứ còn lại, tất cả đều trên facebook và tất cả chúng không có còn một biên giới, một thước đo nào để phân biệt cái gọi là  thật - giả  ! Bản tính tôi lập dị, không phù hợp với nhiều người và nhiều người cũng không hợp với tôi, và những người hợp tôi thì họ chưa chắc đã hợp nhau, tôi phải làm nhiều cách trong cư xử để vừa lòng người này, tránh mất lòng người kia ! Cái đó không phải là vấn đề "giả tạo" mà tôi định nói sau đây mà lại chỉ là nguyên nhân xa xôi. Từ đó trong tôi mất đi nhưng câu nói bực mình, tôi dễ cáu gắt, đơn giản vì phải đè nén khá nhiều. tôi không thể chửi bậy bừa phứa như trước, facebook đã có cả cô giáo, họ hàng, bố mẹ bạn bè, người yêu ban bè, tôi phải tập cách kiềm chế lời nói ! Cái đó thì tốt - tôi công nhận. Nhưng giờ thì sao, đâu đâu status của tôi cũng gần như chỉ có cười, ảnh gây cười, những trò cười. Gặp 1 sự việc buồn cười, tôi type :)) =)) :-j blah.. blah... vậy những lúc tôi type chúng thì bao nhiêu lần trong số đó tôi đang cười thật ? Hay mặt lại đần ra như lúc viết cái blog này !

 Tôi gần không như đa số các bạn trẻ, họ lên viết hầu hết về tình yêu, những ngày đó với tôi xa vời rồi ! Tôi đã có người con gái luôn bên tôi, dù có muốn tiếp tục hay không thì vấn đề tình yêu cũng không thể làm tôi suy sụp như trước nữa. Tôi đã từng ước, "ước được một lần, một lần yêu một người con gái yêu thật lòng mình" ... một lần ? lần đó đây.. cũng được dăm ba năm rồi, đó cũng là quá đủ cho tôi ! giờ nếu mối tình đó trôi qua thì tôi cũng chỉ có một suy nghĩ đơn giản. Điều ước đã hết! Lúc đó tôi phải mỉm cười, quay bước đi tiếp trong đoạn đường còn lại chứa đầy lo toan, những thứ mà vẫn theo tôi suốt thời gian qua đến tận bây giờ, nó còn bắt đầu từ trước khi tôi cảm nhận được hạnh phúc với người con gái đó!
 Vấn đề tôi quan tâm chỉ là cuộc sống! Tôi tự nhận tôi thật sướng khi được làm con út trong gia đình tôi, chả phải làm gì ! Nhưng, cũng đâu có được gì ! những thứ họ cho tôi, tả một cách ngắn gọn thì là "những thứ (họ tưởng) tôi cần" ! Vâng! có thể khi tôi nói điều này trên facebook, nhiều người quan tâm tôi sẽ vào khuyên tôi như "hãy hạnh phúc với những gì đang có" "hãy cố gắng rồi mọi thứ tốt sẽ đến"... thật lòng tôi cám ơn họ ! Nhưng tránh sao được những lời như "đm m rửng mỡ hả con, hãy nghĩ đến những người khó khăn hơn m", tôi ví dụ bằng câu đó thôi, được, tôi công nhận là hpải biết nghĩ đến những người còn thiệt thòi hơn mình, nhưng bạn đã bao giờ bị bố mẹ cũng nói 1 câu như "m học còn không bằng thằng abc con ông xyz, nhà nó nghèo hơn cả nhà mình" khi đó bạn có nghĩ là "mình phải nghĩ đến nó" không? hay lại "sao lại so sánh lung tung thế"??? đấy, khi có người nói tôi phải biết nghĩ tới những người sinh ra khó khăn hơn tôi, tôi sẽ nghĩ thế đấy! Tại sao ? Tại sao tôi sinh ra trong một gia đình đầy đủ, đủ bố đủ mẹ, đủ anh em, lại phải sống thiếu thốn như trẻ mồ côi ? Các người có óc không khi so sánh như vậy ? Tôi rất thương người cơ nhỡ, nhìn trẻ em không gia đình tôi cũng nghĩ nếu tôi ở địa vị đó tôi sẽ ra sao, sẽ như nào.. Nhưng thể hiện điều đó tôi sẽ dùng cách liên quan đến từ thiện, tôi sẽ cố gắng chung tay góp những thứ nhỏ nhoi để các em đỡ thiệt thòi chứ ko phải bằng cách cũng khoanh chân "chịu thiệt thòi" cũng các em, bố mẹ tôi muốn tôi phải sống tự lập trong khi bao nhiêu người cũng chả giàu hơn nàh tôi mà vẫn được bố mẹ đầu tư từ A đến Z để được thành công ! OK ! Tôi sẽ không bao giờ ganh tị với ai, tôi luôn chấp nhận, tôi cũng chưa bao giờ yêu cầu hay đỏi hỏi gì từ bố mẹ, nhưng tôi có quyền than thở ! Nên đừng bao giờ nói với tôi bằng cái giọng vô văn hóa như đang nói một kẻ không ra gì như thế !

Trên đây tôi đã nói hết những gì tôi khó chịu trong suốt nhiều tháng qua !
Hết.
Sau đây là bài Beat it của MJ:



They told him don't you ever come around here 

Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear 
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear 
So beat it, just beat it

Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man 
You wanna be tough, better do what you can 
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man 
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can 
So beat it, just beat it 



You have to show them that you're really not scared 
You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare 
They'll kick you, then they beat you, 
Then they'll tell you it's fair 
So beat it, but you wanna be bad 



Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it 
No one wants to be defeated 
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight 
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

and My life be like



My life be like Ooh Ahh
CHORUS:
It's times like these that make me say,
Lord if you see me please come my way.
Leavin bread crumbs for when I stray
Rely on sacrifice and the price you paid
Feel me like a fingertip
(flow fingertip flow fingertip)
Sometimes I fall I slip
Got a heartfelt desire be more like you
Trying not to quench your fire by the things that i do

I'm on an island by my lonesome stranded
Low key and stayin' candid
Reflectin on the things I try my hand at
Search for the equations to persuasions I'm used to
Findin comfort in the zones of closet bones I get loose to
A mountainous fontaine,
Spinnin and monsoonin
Grinnin its high octane
This worlds out wacky
Rollin down the hills cause lifes a hassle
Encircled by my folly like a moat surround a castle
Stay afloat,
Catch a second wind thin is the air I breathe
Teary-eyed nose runnin, wipe the snot on my sleeve
I'm callin on my savior to be all that I need
Please forgive me my behavior had me lost at light speed

CHORUS

The fear of never falling in love
And the tears after losing the feelings
Of what you thought love was
Like the dirt still up under the rug
(My life be like)
Bad characteristics covered in Christ's blood
The joy of new birth and the pain of growing up
The bliss between giving my all and giving up
The highs and lows,
Paths and roads I chose
In the cold I froze
Trying to ease my woes
In this world of sin
Clothes to thin to fend
So to God I send
Words of help to win
In grumblings so deep letters could never express
So the sounds of Ooh Ahh beneath my breath projects

CHORUS

My life be like (Toby Mac)

My life be like ooh aah ooh
Dum dum diddy
Here comes that boy from the capital city
Last up on the Grits new ditty
But eight bars of the truth will do, 
uh
I believe there's a pride thats stunning,
And I believe in the kingdom coming
I believe if you seek the truth,
You don't need to look far cuz it's gonna find you

So why, oh why, do I trip and stumble?
And ooh ahh as commitment crumble?
I can't believe that I'm here again?

CHORUS

Up In The Sky - Amanda Jenkins


When you are down
And you want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

What you will see
Are the stars above,
And all you need
Is to proclaim your love.

Who you will find
And see so clear,
Are friends in mind
You want to hold near.

Whenever you need them
Just look up high,
Call their name
And see them fly.

Every friend you meet
Owns a star
And you can see them
No matter how far.

Whenever you are down
And want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

No Mystery - Gothic




You look into my eyes and see things you don't understand.
Am I a mystery? I think not.
You look at my smile;
You search for something that isn't there.
Am I a mystery? I think not.
You listen to my voice, and call me an angel.
This angel is flesh and blood,
Not a doll to be put on show.
You see - I'm not a mystery.
I am me.

I am flesh and blood.

Touch me; I wont break.
There's no mystery here.
Caress me; feel the warmth.
I'm not a mystery; I am Woman.

Here I am - desires abound;

Relentless and sensuous - yours to caress
Like a flower; make me bloom.
Don't stop; not even to rest!
No mystery here; Just a Woman.
I feel the weight of your body against mine;
Your heaving breath upon my skin.
The most gentle touch on my thigh,
The soft nibbling on my breasts -
Moving slowly in a downward motion.
Now you see,
I'm no mystery; I am YOUR Woman.
I am all Woman.

Sweet Dreams - Elizabeth




Last night as I lay sleeping, love,
A vision came to me.
It was of you and I, my love,
A wondrous sight to see.

And in the dream I had, my love,
I reached and touched your face
I clasped your hand in mine, my love,
And felt your warm embrace.

I pressed my lips to yours, my love,
To taste your kiss so sweet
You held me for a minute, love,
In this moment that did fleet.

I wakened from the dream, my love,
With a thought of you that stayed
With me throughout the day, my love,
And never once did fade.

Waiting - Dawn D.

Her poem was written about how she feel that she is stuck in a relationship without love and how bad she want to feel that love for him and to receive it from him.





Wanting,
lusting,
to be held,
to be loved,
to feel warmth,
to feel your beating heart.
Wanting to be sheltered from the cold,
heartless winds.
Falling into invisible arms;
into an abyss of love.
Wishing,
hoping,
that my desires will be filled;
my desires of loving warmth.
Wanting to be held,
comforted,
loved.
Dreaming of passionate embraces,
of tender kisses,
loving words,
romantic nights.
Waiting for undying love.

You Meant So Much - Cassie Mitchell



You meant so much to all of us
You were special and that's no lie
You brightened up the darkest day
And the cloudiest sky

Your smile alone warmed hearts
Your laugh was like music to hear
I would give absolutely anything
To have you well and standing near



Not a second passes
When you're not on our minds
Your love we will never forget
The hurt will ease in time

Many tears I have seen and cried
They have all poured out like rain
I know that you are happy now
And no longer in any pain.

Something - Raquel




And so it came to be

this isolation that I am
I can only look to me
to find the way it all began -
this confusion, constant
hunger for something more than this
I strive to find this being
that I envision, yet seem to miss.
Could it be that I am empty-
or maybe a little lost?
Could it be that I am lonely,
or seek happiness at any cost?
This never-ending Something
that I am living deep inside,
depicts the illusion of myself
and all I have to hide.

Ôm


Hai đứa tôi đều có bạn gái. Mỗi lần đi chơi chung, cả hai đều chở bạn gái đi với nhau.
Bạn gái nó ôm nó thật chặt. Đầu nàng tựa vào lưng nó. Tôi nhìn cả hai thật hạnh phúc. Còn em, chỉ hai tay vịn hờ ngang hông tôi. Không biết em có yêu tôi nhiều không?

 Một thời gian sau, tôi mời nó đến dự đám cưới. Thấy nó đi một mình., tôi hỏi: “ Nàng đâu rồi ?” Nó buồn rười rượi trả lời: “Nàng bỏ tao rồi!”
Giờ tôi mới biết, em ôm tôi bằng trái tim chứ không phải bằng đôi tay.

Colorful Glowing Text Effect in Photoshop


Step 1 – Choosing a Background

For the best results with this effect, you’ll want to use a dark background. The background should have a hint of color, and should avoid from being too dark (such as pure black). Being inspired from Drasik’s work, I’ll use a dark violet (#120612).

-->
Just to get this out of the way, as you may notice throughout this tutorial, there are LOTS of different ways to go about accomplishing this effect – this is just the way I found to be most convenient.

Step 2 – Setting the Type

We’ll be setting the type in a not-so-traditional way, which will allow us to get a special layering.
Using the Type Tool, type whatever it is you’d like to apply the effect to, BUT only type one letter per layer. That is,you need to type a letter, apply the text, then create a new type layer with your next letter. When all is said and done,you should have a separate layer for each letter.
You’re image probably looks something like this (Quick Note: Type used below is Century Gothic):
Well, that leaves something to be left desired.
Rather than wasting too much time trying to get things aligned perfectly, let’s handle it all in a quick step. Select the Move Tool. Create a selection around the first letter (Ctrl + Click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette). Next,Select ALL of the Type Layers (Click the Bottom Type Layers name, hold shift, then click the top Type Layers name). Now, in the Options barClick “Align Bottom Edges” – the icon that looks like this 
Deselect everything (Ctrl + D), and now start moving your individual letters so that they slightly overlap one another.
Positioned Type

Step 3 – Add a Gradient

Create a new Layer above your type layers. Using the Gradient Tool, and a White to Transparent gradient, fill in the work area so that the Gradient is not TOO OPAQUE, or TOO TRANSPARENT where it overlaps with the text, but fades nicely in that area. The gradient should move from top to bottom – Top being the most opaque (Hold Shift to make a perfectly straight gradient).

Step 4 – Cutting out Letters

Imagine that we’re making shaped-cookies. It’s a stretch, but stay with me. In a way, this gradient will serve as our ‘dough’, while the letters will be our ‘cookie cutters’. Those individual type layers created earlier are tools we can use to create shapes from the gradient.
Let’s go through it step by step and see if it makes more sense. Create a selection of the layer contents for your first letter (Ctrl + Click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette). Now, Select the Gradient Layer (By “Select”, I mean click the layer – do not select the layer contents. We want the selection of the first letter to remain). Copy (Ctrl + C) and Paste so that you’ve created a copy of the gradient in the shape of the letter. If you were to disable ALL of the layers except for this new layer you just created, and the background, you’d now have this:
It’s really a lot simpler than it sounds. Repeat this process for the rest of the letters, always making sure to selecting the gradient layer (the dough) prior to cutting out your layer. When you’re finished, put away all your letters and gradient layers (delete them, or hide them).

Step 5 – Just Add Color!

You may want to name all of your individual layers, that way you don’t lose track of which letter is which, but perhaps you’ve got a manageable number and that’s not necessary.
Create a new layer above all your ‘gradient-letters’. Grab the Paint Bucket Tool, and a bright color (I’m starting with#7fff5d). Create a selection of your first gradient-letter (Ignore any messages you may or may not see about no selection being shown), and fill in that selection with your selected color on the new layer. Set this layers Blending Mode to Screen.
Repeat this process for the remaining letters (each color on a new layer). Try using the same colors more than once every now and then.

Step 6 – Merge

When you’re sure that the type is set correctly, Merge all of your gradient-letters (Select the layers, then Ctrl + E).Then, Merge all of your colors into one layer (Make sure the blending mode is still set to screen).
You should now have two layers – one with the plain gradient layers, the other with the colors for the letters. We didn’t have to do this, it’s just easier to manage.

Step 7 – Getting the Glow

Duplicate your gradient-letters layer (Not the color layer)Apply a Gaussian Blur with value of 1-3 on this layer.
Repeat this step (Duplicate & Blur) on your Color layer. Set this layer to Lighten or Screen (use best judgment). Depending on the saturation and intensity of your colors, you may choose to duplicate the color layer a second time.

Step 8

Using the Eraser Tool, and a soft brush, go back and erase parts of the colored layers so that the type appears to fade from color to a ghostly white.

Step 9 – Reflect

Select ALL of the layers being used for the text effect, then Duplicate them. Merge the duplicated version into one layer. Use the trendy Surface Reflection Technique shown in our 5 Essential Reflections for Photoshop Tutorial to mirror your type.

Step 10 – Adjust as Needed!

From here on out, I’ll let you play on your own with the effect. I’d recommend playing with lighting effects in the background — simple things like adding some highlights behind the text… though you certainly could go all out asDrasik does in his work!
Here are some additional steps I took to improve upon the effect:
Playing with additional blurs can also add a bit of liveliness to the text. Try Duplicating a layer, and applying a motion blur to see how that works out for you!

Download the PSD if you’re having any trouble!
