Broken Window to the Soul by DestinyBlue Broken Window to the Soul by DestinyBlue
Bang.

I always loved the phrase 'the eyes are the window to the soul' and wanted to convey that here, but if the windows broken who knows what might be inside...
The drawing, while linked, isn't so much about suicide and suicidal ideation, but more about how the eyes can give away someones feelings if your prepared to look deep enough.

Drawn in some darker times for me, things are getting better, I really wouldn't be posting this if they weren't.

Peace, love and reloading,

Um....Love It But I Think Somebody Stole It Or Did A Bad Trace Job :/
Just Saying They Didn't Give You Credit For The Idea. Like She Even Puts Bang. The Dif Is That The Traced One Is: Bad. Black N White. Crying. Some others.

This is also so sad-looking... like you and other people say, things get better - once it gets to the worst!
(no, I don't mean that like we NEED the worst...)

This is hauntingly beautiful. Our eyes are much more honest then our words are.  For me, this really expresses what depression can feel like. Even if you can smile and laugh, and say you're okay, it's still very difficult to lie with your eyes. 
Thanks for the stunning work :)

Hi blue. I really hope you read this, as well as anyone who suffers from depression. I have, and I know how hard it is. I just turned twelve, and it's so, so hard to keep going sometimes. It's gotten to the point where I cry myself to sleep. So please, just look up The butterfly project. I've self-harmed, and I regret it every day. Please don't ruin your life. And do something for me- have an amazing day. Look up "growing up" by Macklemore. Just enjoy life.

Super Cool Artwork!!!Clap=P (Razz) :o (Eek) Meow :3 ;) (Wink) La la la la :happybounce: NodOhm... Ohm...  deviantART DeviantArt I love deviantART! deviantART  P.S. I've been there ready to end my life, on the brink of death. Downed a bottle of pills with a gallon of Orange Juice. My mother found me and called the Fire Rescue ambulance. Forced to drink liquid charcoal to cleanse my stomach. Several days of "voluntary commitment" in the hospital psych ward. Group Therapy. Doctors. In the end, nothing made me better but me. I had to want to be better. I had to become to the ultimate actor I never was in school. I had to pretend to be sane if the world ever wanted me to live at all. I had to become as close to a normal civilized human being as I could be with my mentally ill mind. Yay!

if anyone looked at my eyes from a freaking MILE away theyd freak.

they look like molten silver with random splodges of blue, and the darker it gets the brighter blue they get, the darker the more dull and grey.

IT FREAKS PEOPLE OUT MAN, I WEAR SUNGLASSES EVERYWHERE.

Your eyes sound completely amazing. I wish I could see them....I have a thing for eyes, all colors and shapes. I love seeing the different colors and patterns in them. I only hope that the way you described your eyes is as awesome as they really are.

Today I woke up with the hope,
That we'd both be together.
I prayed and cried but had no luck,
No, nothing made it better.

I tried to call, I tried to text,
But strength wouldn't cease to fail me.
The pain's so great and shame so much
I wish someone'd impale me.

The only strength I've had of late
Is holding up my fingers:
Two curled down and two straight out:
A perfect speech of figure.

A figure that from here on out,
Is not a living person,
No matter what has come my way,
It always seems to worsen.

And so I pull the trigger of
My metaphoric gun.
I blast away and kill the pain.
How do you like my pun?

My eye is what my heart looks like:
A pupil full of cracks.
But with the heart inside of you,
Who'll fix the broken glass?

Only one solution's left,
To cure my aching itch.
I pull the trigger, boom! Goodbye!
Please don't think I'm a b*tch.

EYES THAT SHOW SORROW

Shattered glass in the eyes
match a broken heart.
She tries to pick up the pieces,
but doesn't know where to start.

They tell her she will be alright,
but they always avoid her sorrowed gaze.
They want to believe she's fine,
but- in truth- she's far away from OK.

She sees the shadows through the cracks
that line her teary vision.
She tries desperately not to think of it,
but still yearns to make that decision.

Fingers press against a temple,
and she whispers a soft "Bang!"
Even though her skin is still without flaw,
a bullet still pierces her through with a sharp pang.

They say that eyes are windows to the soul-
but only if you bother to look.
With her, they left her helpless and alone,
and so sits an unread, and darkening, book.
