StrengthAuthor's Note: Hello everyone! This is my first installment for my poems collection: Dying Youths. The collection concerns on youth suicides. The contents and meanings of the poems are the thoughts or struggles of teen which lead them into committing suicides. Youth suicides is still an on-going 'trend' all over the world. According to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), approximately 12.6 (rate per 100,000) people commit suicide back in year 2013. The statistic is still constant over the years. Hence, the poems is to bring the awareness among all of us, young and old, about what's wrong among the youths.Strength by TheStranger220

I needed the strength to fly,
Fly high up in the sky,
If only I have the strength to try,
For I have only a few minutes to die.
I needed the strength to love,
A fiery passion for someone to hold,
But deep inside I have no ho
My Diabolical LifeMy Diabolical Life by Kyara007
My whole life is dedicated to the laughter of people
For an short while, i belong to their lifes
But when the projectors will turn off
I shall become invisible
Nobody is interested in me
I am not beautiful
My teeth are rotten, my smell is fetid
I am so sad
Then, to fill this lack
Time and again
I built my circus
Whose i'm the only to possess the key
So that never again, I remains alone
Visitor, beware of me
The next time which you will see me
It could be your tour of be added to my collection of corpses

Mr. [Mister] Four  Legs.
Watch your doors, watch your windows, for you shall see,
something lurking into your rooms, breaking your spirits free,
Sanity blows away, leaving you nothing but fear,
Eerie laughters, and scratching is all you hear,
Your clock ticks as fast as your heartbeat as you see its shadow,
now you feel nothing but your only sorrow,
you wish for this creature to go away and never come back,
as its claws sink into your bedsheets, giving you a heart attack,
It's souless eye, and its sharp teeth gives you the wonders of true horror,
you try to pull your sheets, hiding like a cat under the covers,
you try to solve the puzzle, retrieving your mind,
thinking this creature is false, hoping you're right,
you slowly peek out from the covers, your head reveals,
There it is, grinning at you, twisting your faucet full of tears,
It knows you worry, it knows your disbelief,
Brushing it's c

#DarkArtists-Inc is a group focused only in Dark Art.
We like Dark Art and we want to expose it so, we welcome all Dark Art Lovers to our Group.
We accept ALL kinds of media, as long as you keep it Dark; not necessary under a "dark" category but, the images must convey some dark emotion and/or feeling.
We accept from Beginners to Experts but please, refrain from sending your entire gallery and try to send ONLY your best to the Group. We do not accept crappy stuff!
The Group Staff reserves the right to deny art that we don't think suitable for the Group's thematics, either for the theme itself, either for the complete lack of quality.
FOUNDERS & CONTRIBUTORS
Who are the Founders & Co-Founders and what's their job here?
the Founder is the person who founded the group and basically he/she can do anything and have full control of everything around the Group. The Co-Founder was designated by the Founder to be in control as well, helping with everything and still able to manage the settings, when necessary.
Who are the Contributors and what's their job here?
Contributors are invited by the Founder and/or Co-Founder. They are chosen according to their skills and areas of expertize. Their job is to accept or decline suggested submissions & favourites, and also, accepting or denying members (always applying the Group's guidelines for Dark Art thematic). Contributors can as well give members the necessary feedback and help. Last but not least, our Contributors help running this amazing Group.
Can I be a Contributor?
For now we're not accepting any more Contributors. In the future, if we feel the need to add more COntributors to our pannel, we'll write a public announcement.
Who are the members and what's their job around here?
Members are free to join or they can be invited by someone from the Admin panel. A member can suggest his own work (or the work of others) to be exposed by the Group, as long as it abides by the Group's thematics. This exposure gives extra feedback to the member's gallery, allowing improvement and more publicity to his gallery & work. A member can also suggest favourites for the Group, following the same guidelines used for the suggested submissions.
Can I become a member?
Yes, we have membership applications open. You just need to click on the "Join Our Group" button (front page left).
Be sure you follow these small rules: you can only submit images related to dark/macabre art or that have some dramatic/dark feeling into it. In case you use resources (external or personal) they have to be credited in your image description.
Are the submissions posted like it was before, under the group's name?
No. On the top of our Front Page, where you have your nickname and your little avatar, click on the arrow and choose to Contribute a Deviation or Suggest a Fave (reminding that, to do it, you have to be an accepted member). After your contribution or suggestion is sent, you just have to wait for approval.
My image suggestion/submission was denied. Why?
One of these reasons: the image you suggested (for submission or favourite) has nothing dark about it; your suggestion (for submission or favourite) doesn't properly credit stockers or is violating some dA policy; what you're trying to submit isn't considered art at all, even for a beginner; the image you suggested (for submission or favourite) is offensive and it can generate uncomfort among several people.
Is there some limit of images I can contribute/suggest?
Please limit your Gallery Suggestions to 2 per month; and limit your Favourite Suggestions to 1 per WEEK as well!
I'm waiting for over than 24/48 hours for my work to be approved or denied. What's happening?
Despite we're trying to gather a reasonable amount of Staff, we can't be around 24/7 and we have lots of images to analyze. Please be patient and soon you'll now if your image has been approved or denied by our Staff.
It's possible that during sometime, things don't work properly. We are already aware that there's a Bug in Groups. dA is trying to set everything right so, lets be patient for some days.
