and now… a smattering of deviations from page 14 of my favorites-
to celebrate 2014.

much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
the chasethe waves chased usMore Like This
and we ran
squealing when the icy Atlantic caught up to our toes
the sea-foam lingered
and she watched it
touching what she called the ocean’s bubble bath
the sand stuck to our feet
and we smiled at each other
racing back toward the water in a chase of our own
There is no fear and loathing here.We were somewhere in the South Pacific on the edge of the ocean when the withdrawals began to take hold. I remember saying something like, “Where the hell are we?”More Like This
My attorney said nothing. Sitting in the sand, he wore only a pair of hideous bell bottoms with red and white stripes that resembled a peppermint candy on copious amounts of LSD. He ignored me and repeatedly tapped his bare foot into the gentle rush of water as it crawled up the beach.
And suddenly I realized I had no idea how we had gotten there. A gaping hole in my memory sparked a brief sense of panic.
“Don’t let it get you,” he said before yawning and falling onto his back.
“Let what get me?” I half shrieked, eyes peeled for wild beasts. Who knew what roamed this place in the night.
“The silence…It’s not something to be feared,” he muttered before passing out cold.
Then I noticed just how quiet it was.
No howling wind coming off the ocean. No creak
Love like CakeCan my love for you be like cake?More Like This
Oh, not the store bought sugar injected mess of
Let it be cheesecake.
Because I know you.
And I know what you like.
I want it to be rich,
I want it to be delicious.
A treat to be shared next to a fire, or better for us,
In the big city,
A small diner,
With our favorite rockabilly song throwing itself about the room
From the old jukebox in the corner.
A bit crumbly.
Leaving those little crumbs to swipe up with a finger,
And gently lick off with that
Tongue of yours.
I want to tie you up and feed it to you.
Give you a choice.
You would always chose it.
I know you.
You love to sit back while I love you,
Until you return the favor.
But you know me.
Which sin I am.
I'm the one who wants you,
Stuffed, drunk, smoking.
I am the sin.
I want to give you everything.
If you want it.
But I know you.
And I would like to thank the academyI keep a roll of tums in my cigarette case.More Like This
Next to the lighter.
Which I use to ignite my dreams.
Watch as my hope slowly burns,
Sending fireflies into the night's sky.
I know how the world doesn't work, Love.
Someday I'll make you as beautiful inside
As you've made me.
It's too cold on this hot summer's day.
The remnants of my sweet childhood...
The trumpets blare in my unhearing ears,
Too loud to think as I plot
as I plan
stay broken with me

I was walking down the aisle, holding my bouquet of stargazer lilies. They were my favorite flower. My veil was covering the happy tears that sprang from my eyes as I walked up to Jasper. My smile was blinding to all of the others besides Jasper because his smile was just as blinding as mine. I clumsily tripped over my long white dress, catching myself right away, but a blush washed up to my cheeks a second later.
I heard chuckles all around me but the only one I could focus on was Jasper's soft laugh. It always sounded like bells to me; bells on a crisp Sunday morning. It made me blush even deeper. Only I could trip on my wedding dress walking up to my husband-to-be. Jasper was wearing his military uniform. The thought of him at war always made me weak in the knees but this time it made my heart burst with pride.
I walked toward him proudly now, my steps sure. But the closer I got the farther Jasper seemed to get. He started to fade, his face becoming less clear and I s

Charlie huffed. "Show's over folks. If you don't live here, get out, except for you Jake." He gave Jake a wink and a thumbs up which was reciprocated.
I turn my head slowly looking at each one of them, narrowing my eyes at these men before me, all of them on my shit list.
Edward. I'm still mad at him for not telling me about Victoria coming back. Whisked me off to Florida in a lame attempt to hide the return of a succubitch vampire who just happens to be planning my demise. And he's still playing hard to get! The horror! Smut lovers everywhere run screaming from his rampant cockblcocking. He's going to cause me to combust, I swear!

The GuardianVili walked through the steadily darkening woods, alone. His weakly lit torch offered more smoke than light. If his younger brother, Odin, were there he’d offer an explanation in such a way that made it seem like he was looking for a fight. But Odin was not there with Vili. He had not been seen for days. This was nothing new; Odin would often disappear for weeks at a time only returning home for reasons only known to him. No, it wasn’t the length of time that Odin had been missing that concerned Vili, it wasn’t even the creeping cold that was known for stealing the lives of sleeping men. No what worried Vili was the Guardian.More Like This
Rumours had begun to spread about this spirit like being that terrorised travellers. It stole and destroyed their possession; it toyed with men’s minds like a wolf with its prey; it set fire to travellers’ tents and wagons, leaving them with nothing but their lives and sometimes it wasn’t even that generous.

Caged InWho would have thought the years being locked in a cage would be the happiest time of my life?More Like This
I used to dream about gliding- my wings spread wide as I rode the breeze over a horizon that went on forever. I would wake in the dark and scream out in frustration, hoping that someday I could sing my real song.
The nights became longer and the dreams became unwelcome. You see, when I'm too caged in, fantasies are more like nightmares, taunting me, teasing me; a blatant reminder of what I can never have.
It was all I wanted. It was everything.
I escaped the first time the opportunity presented itself. Barreling through the unlocked door, I ran down the table and leaped through the open window with wings unfurled. I sang then, the sweetest noise I have ever made.
Until I fell.
I had never truly experienced the sensation of falling. It wasn't as peaceful as I imagined. It was terrifying.
I thought flying would come easy. I thought I would simply beat-be
When one door closes...I’ve heard the sayingMore Like This
When one door closes, another opens,
I felt the disconnect and the lock clicked shut
It closed for just a moment
Then opened so hard
That it spun me
I went down in a haze of mixed emotions,
Not over my loss but feeling for you,
My wants mangling each other,
Eating each other alive,
Until there was nothing left
When the tears stopped
and you were there, waiting
I ran toward you
Wanting change, wanting freedom
Embracing an uncertain future
Your eyes were like the ocean
A swirling punch bowl of blue and white,
So inviting in their dance
So severe was the pull of your undertow
That I dove right in
Without a life preserver
Through your door I swam
With a tail like a mermaid
Propelling me face first
Into your warm water embrace,
With a smile
Meant just for you
It wasn’t what I wanted
At the time...
It was unexpected,
It was love laid out at my feet
In a trail of hot sand
That burned my toes
Until you carried me
Found WantingI want to screamMore Like This
And to cry
And to shake you
All at once
I want you
To look me in the eye
And explain yourself
I want to punch you
And hold you
And love you
Because it's what you deserve
I want you
To tell me you hate me
And love me
And that it'll be okay
Because I'm not sure what I want
But I want it.

in pencils marked as 3H and 4B.
Your intent, to mimic my every feature,
demonstrated a love beyond comprehension.
Some called it obsession - an urge to waste lead
on a single person. Particularly, me.
But so unaware were half of the masses;
they could not discern between love and the latter.
The artsy couple - clearly naive.

Here comes May's monthly feature (at last). This month, I decided to feature :iconcdulsky: as my main feature. Congratulations!
I will also post some deviations that caught my attention. This month, I'll be covering only skies and moon, flowers/plants and black and whites.
Please note that I would have posted more deviations, but cdulsky has a rather small gallery. Nonetheless, I invite you to go and see what he has to offer, it's worth a peak!
