Chibi Me - New Tablet Practice by Aikuna Chibi Me - New Tablet Practice :iconaikuna:Aikuna 0 2 Something like Spring by Aikuna Something like Spring :iconaikuna:Aikuna 2 1 Remember by Aikuna Remember :iconaikuna:Aikuna 2 0 Glance by Aikuna Glance :iconaikuna:Aikuna 0 0 Cheer by Aikuna Cheer :iconaikuna:Aikuna 0 0
Can I dance to your heartbeat for a while?
I've lost my rhythm, I can't hear it anymore.
I just need some time to get into the swing,
Just need to break free from a life so lonely.
Will you sing to me the stories I need to hear?
After all this time I have no voice to offer.
All these truths fed to me like life support,
Tear them from my head, I won't believe them anymore.
Could it be that you're teaching me to live again?
Somehow beauty's rising from what was such a mess.
As my soul reanimates after stagnating far too long,
I only hope I harmonize with the cadence of your song.

Never thought I'd see the strain
That comes from an addiction
     in your eyes
I never thought you'd take a drag
That'd get you craving more
     unable to think
I didn't like when
It took me by surprise
     and consumed you
But neither of us knew,
It was something good for you
     but turned malign
The symptoms started slow,
So we couldn't know the start
     of your decline.
My voice couldn't call you back,
You needed this to breathe
     or should I say, her.
I pray you don't take
One more cigarette
     behind my back.
I will take your pained cries
It doesn't mean I didn't gag
     from the smoke.

The Canvas
Love is not flawless.
     The canvas is rough;
          the lines aren't smooth;
     the hand that paints is shaky.
The colors bleed sometimes,
     Or they're not the right shade.
          Perhaps when mixed together,
     the beauty is lost.
A pounding heart draws attention
     to its cuts and callouses.
          In shame, it hides
     In courage, it glows
A beating heart calls to it
     those that harm,
          those that heal,
     those that fade away.
Love can triumph.
     What else can bring life

When a soul is beautiful, it's obvious
It's so easy to make anyone envious
And when a heart falls, it can break so hard
But you gotta believe in love, even if you're left with shards
Shards of the memories that burn
Pieces of hope that yearn
Echoes of laughter going on and on
And it's hard but you gotta pick yourself up sometimes
Even when it hurts to run
You just need to keep holding on
You can't rise to the top if you keep looking down
But when a heart falls, it can break so perfectly
Shatter your dreams, your reality
But you gotta keep going on,
Even if it cuts, those shards...
Shards of memories that burn
Pieces of hope that yearn
Echoes of laughter going on and on
And when those shards just keep piercing
Every motive that you have
And keep stopping short
Every breath that you take
Sometimes you gotta realize
How to hold on, hold it just right
To pierce through your devastation
And cut the stars into the night
When a soul is beautiful, it's obvious
The shards of memories that burn

A Deadly Sin
It violently constricts me
This serpent donning green,
Fighting not to let me
Live the happiness I've seen.
Its grip is tight around my neck
Trying to turn my words to lies,
I focus only on the light but
The feeling aims to hypnotize.
Finally, I scream and struggle
I will not let this feeling win!
I'll feed only the good in my heart
'Til starvation kills the sin.
:iconaikuna:Aikuna 6 4
Just as any other day
I know
It's a card-maker's holiday
I know
You know this all already
You know
If I go on, it'll be cheesy
You know
It happens way too easy
So I'll cut to the chase,
And say what is true
With no fuss, what I feel:
I love you.
:iconaikuna:Aikuna 0 2
Take Heart
You caught my heart
          Bewildered, wondering why you held it now.
I could only bow my head from your inquisition,
Couldn't speak the thousand fragments
          Fighting to be "the reason".
I raised my eyes enough to see
          You, fearful of spreading the poison
Of feelings unrequited.
I smiled, immunized by the knowledge
That even if nothing was given in return,
The receiver was deserving
          And the giver had no choice.
You keep it on you, now,
My heart safe in your honesty,
It's not a velvet-lined box
          But better bruised than beaten.

Currently trying to remember how to art.
So the last time I wrote here was about this time of year, three years ago. 

I really hope this time results in me at least being semi-active on here. =)

I've just finished going through and removing myself from a lot of groups, and paring down my watchers list as well. I'm trying to get reacquainted with the site, so I'm trying to get as "back to basics" as possible without creating a new account (which I considered, giving my lapse of being an active member under this account).

Also, this is technically my second account anyhow, and I don't think I want to make more. It's bad enough I have such a habit of creating so many accounts, anyway. x.x

So what brought me back? My best friend bought me a new Wacom tablet, the Intuos Comic. I've had a larger, now-old tablet for years, but recently I found the size cumbersome to use and it's mostly just taken up space in the past few years. Thanks to my new (small) tablet, it's super portable and I find it much easier to draw with.

I'm still getting back into the groove of things, but I bought myself a year of discounted membership to encourage my foray back into the art world. I could use more creativity in my life, I think.

Feel free to say hi if you read this, I'm curious who's still around! =)

PS: I'm considering a username change, but I'm not sure yet. Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up!
  • Listening to: Off Topic Podcast #4
  • Reading: Webcomics and "Saga"
  • Watching: Sort of watching the podcast as I draw
  • Eating: Christmas noms
  • Drinking: Water
