I eat only because my body demands it.
In the South pregnant mothers eat red dirt
because it gives them what they crave. Their bellies are full moons,
their eyes constellations of what their baby will be.
Forget tossed stones or chicken entrails,
the lines of a palm already scarred
by machinery bits, a barbed wire chicken fence.
I already know what my future will be.
I was given paradise but it did not want me.
They told me if you are not strong enough this paradise will scar you
and it has. I was meant to be pregnant at the age of 16
and believe this child will be different from me.
But I escaped, relentless, demanding. "Do not give into it."
But paradise rejected me.
I am now too slovenly, scared and desperate.
I want to bite myself, taste red blood,
red clay until it consumes me. I belong to it.
I want the red clay until it exhausts me and whatever I may give birth to.
My scars like constellations have told me we are not worthy.
I'm sorry...My... my daughter was killed by my best friend. He says he's sorry, and that it was an accident that he had done it.More Like This
"Please, you have to forgive me... it was an accident, I didn't know what I was doing!" He would always say that same thing. Over and over again until I had to force him to stop. He would always follow me around, saying "I'm sorry...". Each time I would ignore him and tell him to just go away, and that I didn't want to see him anymore. He was drunk off his feet that night, and was watching over my poor daughter. My friend decided to... take a drive, with her. My daughter didn't even know what was going on; she was too young, about three years old. You can already take a wild guess as to what had happened with them. If you guessed a car crash, then you are right.
I had gotten a phone call about the crash and someone sent me an E-mail looking at the car and its wreck. The reason why I had gotten en E-mail instead of going to the scene was because

* Eine Eskalation von Beau Cyphre *
Du schaffst es, dich gleichermaßen zu verstecken und zu offenbaren, und ich glaube, dass es genau diese Widersprüchlichkeit ist, die dich so interessant macht. Du bist wet dream und Märchenfee zugleich, und schaue ich dich hier an, wage ich kaum, dich zu berühren - aus Angst, du könntest zerbrechen. Dabei bin ich es, der nach nur einem einzigen Kuss wirklich in Gefahr wäre, nicht mehr zurück zu finden. Aber genau hierin liegt wohl der unwiderstehliche Reiz von Nimmerland.

Hach, du bist herrlich schwierig, aber ich mag sowas! Du bist ein richtiges Rätsel, auf besondere Weise verspielt, ein bisschen in einem Märchen gefangen und gleichzeitig unheimlich tief, und darum fang ich jetzt auch ganz unten in deiner neuen Galerie an mit einem Bild, das mich an einen wunderschönen Film mit Natalie Portman und Jude Law erinnert: My Blueberry Nights. Irgendwie bist du immer noch unschuldig, und da kannst du treiben, was immer du willst, Tinkerbell: Diese Unschuld wirst du niemals verlieren.

Show her all the love U got, stalk her gallery these days, appreciate her art by not just giving faves (it's a too easy thing to do, isn't it?) - try to find some uplifting words and comment on her works. I'm sure she'll really like it!
An Artist Day means much more than giving an artist just a one-day-span of attention, it's more like shining a spotlight on the beautiful work of an extraordinary artist. This spotlight reminds us of the wonderful things we're all capable of, and by giving the chosen artist real feedback we all show our love for the breathtaking moments that artist is sharing with us.
So enjoy your time exploring her gallery, and please give something back!
