Sestina - Loved and lost
The grasp of death is near enough to touch
While friends and family gather in the dark.
For sixty-seven years I've loved and lost
While memories, stark and bright, have filled my eyes.
In truth, my time is short, and short on time,
Before I meet my Savior and my Light.
In youth, the envy of my father's light,
I frolicked in the shade of Nature's touch.
A child, and full of energy, the time
Was one of wonder and delight; the dark
Would never win, defeated in my eyes.
Light always won, and darkness always lost.
So learning from the world, I never lost
The wonder every child takes from the light.
On evenings I would stare into her eyes,
And fall asleep, lulled by my mother's touch.
My dreams were safe, protected from the dark
By those who loved me: now, and for all time.
Yet love and life are rife with pain through time:
My brother and my counterpart was lost,
And all who cared were thrown into the dark,
As broken faith had turned us from the Light.
For as our souls were bared, His purest
:iconprevail:prevail 3 10


Belly, knotted like a ragged bean.
A gentle pace of mellow bristling steps,
Abreast a stippled waxy paper screen
With a burden of modest implements.
Past the pungent cups and crockery
Of night upon a sequent night\'s cold oil.
Buoyed by a hungry revery
Of no softer painting to be spoiled.
Kerchief and cool reverberate brass bowl,
Simple tools, with leisure to unmake
A hair and lace so featly to unroll.
A spot of paint, a blot of blush and kohl...
Courtesan, plum-patterened silk aflow.
Cinnabar above, Cinnabar below...

Safari Lighting by dangerz Safari Lighting :icondangerz:dangerz 1 2
I flex my wings, although I've never flown;
I long to seize the winds, to hear their lore
and seek in flight for secrets still unknown.
Your hand in mine is strong as salt, as stone,
an anchor to embrace and to adore--
I flex my wings, although I've never flown.
Each feather is a word; I must atone
for words too harshly said--so I explore,
and seek in flight for secrets still unknown.
Replete with richness in both hue and tone,
your words, though few, ring through my very core.
I flex my wings, although I've never flown.
Revelling, I know that you condone
my windborne journey, so for you I soar
and seek in flight for secrets still unknown.
The deepest truths resound in blood and bone,
and in your words of love, so soft, so sure.
I flex my wings, although I've never flown,
and seek in flight for secrets still unknown.

Amalgamate Love
In our darkness here, my senses sing
drunk on sweetness and replete with wine.
Like crystal lightly struck our bodies ring.
I'll learn to share in every song you sing--
a love unplanned.
I sometimes can't believe you could be mine.
I stroke your hair, strand by silken strand
and bow to taste the flesh I've made a shrine.
Without possessing you I've made you mine,
without a word.
I can feel your skin beneath my hand,
strong and delicate as a trembling bird.
I wish that we could soar and never land,
as, shivering, you rise to meet my hand--
love on the wing.
There's no more perfect sound I've ever heard
than your breath drawn in soft and shuddering.
I see you're luminous, though my vision's blurred;
love is an inner light, or so I've heard.
With me, you shine.
I'll take your hand and, pressing it with mine,
I'll sing of passion in music never heard.
Love on the wing and without a word;
a love unplanned, but with me you shine.

Better Off Dead
BETTER OFF DEAD - 4.20.2003
What\'s the matter, girl?
Your soul is dying? Aww.
That\'s too bad.
Better get used to loss...
That\'s all you\'ll ever get.
Why are you crying, sister?
Because your mom ignores
What you have to say?
Well, there are kids that are worse off
Than you.
Get over it.
How come you hurt so much, daughter?
You have no friends who
You can trust? Well...
You\'re not going to change the world
Regardless. So fuck off
And forget trust.
Stop your whining, girl.
I know you\'re dead inside
But that\'s no excuse.
You should at least keep up
That wonderful image of falsity
Because life
Is one big hole
Waiting to be filled,
And you\'re so empty
You just take up space.
Oh, by no means
Does this give you a reason
To just give up and hand over your will.
You better just deal.
What\'s the point in trying to heal anymore?

United States
Current Residence: Los Angeles
Favourite genre of music: indie pop, jazz, classical
Favourite style of art: abstract?
Operating System: OSX.3
MP3 player of choice: pod
Favourite cartoon character: mr. monday
the fact that these ads are back is kinda bothering me, but as I made some art I just didn't bother to scan in or anything since I last updated, and since other things just seem to be taking forever, i'm not going to bother.  You probably won't hear much if anything from me in the next year as I will be down helping out around the gulf coast region, and don't feel like spending my time taking pictures of art and uploading and everything (i sincerely doubt i have scanner access).  I may post a couple of things before I leave though, like i'm trying to do something inspired by katrina and it would also be nice if I could finish things that i've been painstakingly working on (off and on) all summer.
