The Mirror
Walking down the hall with glassy eyes,
A mirror caught me by surprise,
The mask I made well hid me,
Its innocence blinding all who see,
The scars inside burst and swelled,
As if a giant had been felled,
The secret now coming near,
Brought to light my darkest fear,
Although the glass reflected well,
It brought to light my darkest hell,
Who am I, I asked myself,
What defines me?
And who is the monster in the mirror?

Storm Mind
Dark clouds hang overheard,
Do I run or do I fight,
How do I escape this plight?
The storms they brew inside my head,
My heart it feels very dead,
This mood I just cant seem to shake,
My bones feel like they might break,
The sound of thunder all around,
My words they carry with no sound
:iconwafflegamer:WaffleGamer 7 5
The Happy Pill
Pop the happy pill,
That’s what everyone is so keen to tell us nowadays,
No one cares about the real problems anymore,
At least not when there's a simple solution at hand,
No they would much rather watch us pop the happy pill,
They don’t care if ultimately it damages you as a person in the end,
No one cares about the side effects,
Not unless it affects them of course,
Everyone just wants you to pop the happy pill and smile,
Smile like nothing's wrong,
Smile like it fixes everything,
after all i guess you're just some broken toy that needs fixing,
clearly you're a broken person because you have problems,
because you're not happy all the time,
because you get upset,
Just pop the happy pill and it will all be better

Lost in Thought
I feel my lips move,
Yet no noise is heard,
This silence does prove,
My vision becomes blurred,
The light dims from my eyes,
No more can I see the skies,
The pain I no longer feel,
How shall I distinguish what is real,
Left alone to my own mind,
And the insanity I will find
:iconwafflegamer:WaffleGamer 10 2
I feel it,
The cool wind against my skin,
My feet at the edge of the rooftop,
Eyes closed I let the breeze carry me across the world,
Across blue lakes and green pastures,
Ancient forest and populous city,
I hear the people speak in voices not my own,
Tongues I do not know,
I hear the beautiful speech,
The sounds of joyous laughter and friendship,
I hear the bells ring and the birds chirp,
The trees groan with a voice of their own as well,
The creek babbles and the rocks whistle as I pass through them,
Gently I open my eyes transported back home,
Much time has passed,
Looking up I see the stars litter the sky like fireflies,
A radiant luminescence washes over me,
Looking out over the lights of the city,
What a wonderful world

Since I am no longer working, I am trying to take my Photography to the next level.  I have recently created a ModelMayhem account which will make it easier to find models.  I Already have a shoot scheduled for November 28, 2015 with models already lined up!  I am creating a social media page to allow me to reach out to people easier.  What I don't have yet, is a good web site that I can build to host my Photography (outside of DA) or a good place for prints where I can sell to anyone that wants the art not just DA members.

United States
I am a hobbyist Photographer and digital artist. I am the father of three wonderful children, Dylan, Aden, and Skye which also happens to be my models more often than not. I currently live in North East Iowa, and am always looking for someone that might be willing to model for me. My favorite form of photography is nature, but my health prevents me from hiking any more.
