NARUTO: Break Me Down by SirEgglington

I'm never very good at critiques, but let me say that I think this is really very good. I can't find anything to tell you to improve on...

As the title hints, these are original characters in a chibi format. Then there's me, hugging an OC's possessed stuffed rabbit. :3

I woke up today, only to find the accursed phenomenon... I have been nominated. >8U

But, what ever. If I figure out how to use my camera to take videos, I'll do it. *shrug*

This is me and my friend. The picture portrays us playing our RPG, but with cute little chibi dolls instead of our wondrous imaginations. :3 You should check her out. kyrasbearcody
"Monkeys in the attic,"
and my brainwave's catching static
and I'd like to say I'm done,
but I fear It's just begun.

All the times I held back screams
and all the horror of the dreams,
and through all of it I had learned
that if I ever should return

to a point of such hilarity
where still there is no comedy,
to understand It's won.
Yes, I fear It's just begun.

So I tried to dull It down,
while at the time I didn't care.
I heard voices all around,
but still I found no one was there.

...And though I know I have been stitched,
I fear that I will come undone.
I fear my fears will all return.
I fear It's only just begun.
It's Only Just Begun
I wrote this poem when I was 15, about a year after a traumatic experience. While 14, I'd stayed in the Intensive Care Unit ( ICU ) of a pediatric hospital for four consecutive weeks. It was a very bloody stay, I was hanging between life and death for weeks on end, my mother was stressed to a breaking point, and three weeks in, I lost my ability to feel hope. It was starting to feel like I was trapped in some kind of purgatory. I feel that I temporarily lost my mind due to being overwhelmed at such a constant rate. Anxiety and hysteria both became regular emotions to me. Even after I was released from the hospital, it took me months the calm down, and even now, four years later, I have anxiety issues... It's gotten a LOT better, and I can function normally in society once more, but sometimes, I feel like my temporary madness is all going to just bunch up, spring back and suffocate me all over again.

"It", in a manner of speaking, is meant to portray that madness.

Oh yeah. "Monkeys in the attic" was my replacement swear while I was in the hospital. It was a pediatric unit, so I didn't want to swear when little kids could hear me. So, my swears became whatever other words could come up out of me. This included "Goldfish crackers," "Jiminy Crickets," and, yeah, "Monkeys in the attic," or just "monkeys." After a fulll month of saying it, it kinda stuck with me. I still say it to this day when I hit my head, or stub my toe. "Monkeys!" :meow: Soooo, yeah. Explanation, over.
I graduated from high school on May 23rd. I'm ALMOST 18. Spent 13 years of my life at the same little school, and I graduated with my kindergarten class. So, pretty pumped about that. After all the medical shiznay that went down between eighth grade and now, I seriously had to fight to graduate with my original class and stay with my friends (although, I was kinda an outsider this year. I did that on purpose and on accident, I guess). But, I fought tooth and nail and crashed into many an obstacle, but managed to pick myself up and carry on right out the door, diploma in my paled and quaking hand. That's what you gotta do when you wanna get somewhere, right? Just keep trudging forward. ...Right?

I have glasses and brown hair. I like colors, mostly purple. Violet's a nice shade of purple.
Anywho, I also like drawing. I try using proper grammer. I like the animes Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, Fruits Basket, Full Metal Alchemist, Death Note, Black Butler, Soul Eater and Ouran High School Host Club.

Skin of choice: Urm... like skin color? Uh...
Personal Quote: Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?
