How long have you been on DeviantArt?  
About 8 years
What does your username mean?  
It's my name, I don't believe in masks or veils
Describe yourself in three words.  
Poet.  Friend. Earnest.
Are you left or right handed?  
Right.
What was your first deviation?  
My poem, "I stand for you"
I stand for youI stand for you and lay for you as wills your perfect heart,
plucked from the Earth by time and toil to fulfill patient cause.
I beg from you an answer true to my bold suit and part.
For Diamondhearts and passioned priests the truth is as a dart
that pierces deep while mortals sleep to lay the pathway's laws.
I stand for you and lay for you as wills your perfect heart,
I knew your soul had struck a toll when witnessed from the start:
A dutied beauty in the stone ripped out by careless claws.
I beg from you an answer true to my bold suit and part.
I bleed out love to wash away the stains life would impart
and purify the petty lies the fools would curse as flaws.
I stand for you and lay for you as wills your perfect heart,
The waves will roar and tides may ebb but I shall stand apart
from sounding seas and soul's disease that would give others pause:
I beg from you an answer true to my bold suit and part.
I am not here for a fraction less than what fulfills my art,
and your kiss matters

Waiting.. by SweetRevenge2506
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?  
Photography.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?  
That would be telling.

That also would be telling.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?  
I have been involved, as friends or more, with many people I have met on here, and many have inspired my poetry.
What are your preferred tools to create art?  
Keyboard.  Failing that a razor-point flair pen and a yellow legal pad.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?  
Bed.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?  
That would really be telling.

word-slinging superhero sidekick.
fighting for freedom and the occasional bender.
born on my birthday, not the fourth of July,
but he would have been the right age
at the right time
and how the history of the war
might have been different with
Bucky Bukowski teaming up with
Captain America.
going against the flow
coming in low
then exploding in an expletive-laden
flurry of word-punches
that got the thought across
to enemies of free speech
with the right to remain
anything but silent.

measure my heart, my will
against all the faery tale romances
sold to you for ten dollars a ticket
and a bag of chocolate candies.

I am not Prince Charming,
by some measures I am less.
by others, far greater, and I possess
the virtue of being solid to the touch.

if my words seem too eloquent,
that is the nature of my station.
but each word is true and earnest,
meant to make you smile and dream.

I bring you legend and magic.
for who does not need more beauty,
hanging like stars in a midsummer sky,
spoken not just to you, but of you.

beaten.
undefeated.
the penance met and meted.

a vagabond.  a priest.  
roadkill and a beast
inviolate
at the unhinged gate.

you will find your way
into the grim ballet
of my herds of words
the immortal
portal
into my perception
of your deceptions.

or the other way around.

I'm a poet. Ronin for now, making my way in the world. I don't write poetry. I don't do poetry. I coexist with it, some have even suggested I am poetry.

I can live with that. I have to. Because it is true. And that is what poetry is: Truth.
