You said I would have you forever, the one constant in my life, my bedrock, solid, unshifting, eternal.
But when I woke today you weren't there, and the house was cold with the emptiness that comes from being left behind.
Oddly enough, I didn't mind it.
Perhaps it started when you met my Mother, "The daughter of Uncertainty? I thought you were only joking!", you never seemed quite comfortable that a house of cards and sliding mirrors should be my childhood home. "We'll find a nice place in the City." you said, "Steel beams and concrete floors."
I wanted to show you my past, the good and the bad, all of it, so you could understand how I became who I am, but all that you saw were the problems, old wounds that had never healed, and they didn't fit in your plans for us so you dismissed them, and we never spoke of the past again.
You claimed it was all for my safety, so I yielded to you my wings and tried to bear it bravely when you pulled my pinions out. "Th

Eulogy for an Ex- bestfriend
When I was just a little girl
my Mother taught me very well
to clean and cook and sew and be
a gracious lady in all things
but most of all " To thine own self be True."
and to render thanks wherever it's due.
So thanks for nothing, darling,
may you never get to say
that I did not acknowledge fully
exactly what you gave.

3 a.m. in the Dorms
Thy overzealous practicing
is grating to mine ears
and destroys my nerves entirely,
wearing my patience thinner
than the wall that separates me from thee
and that nefarious instrument of torture
you call an "Accordion".

Aunt Tatty
"I have decided -" stated Aunt Tatty, coming into the sitting room where John and Melissa were playing chess (Melissa was winning.), "- that I am a Cat."
Now in any other family one might be concerned for your relative's mental health after such a statement, but everyone knew that Aunt Tatty  (Or Tatiana Drake, as she was known then.) had hit her head falling off the stable roof when she was 12 and had been a bit pixielated ever since, so Melissa calmly capture her brother's rook before turning to address her aunt.
"I thought you wanted to be a deer." she said, watching John chew his knuckles as he debated his next move. "What Happened?"
"That was two weeks ago." John interjected, still absently gnawing his knuckles. "Last I heard, she wanted to be an Owl." he said, finally deciding on moving his Knight.
Aunt Tatty waved her hand dismissively. "Oh,I gave up on being an Owl after the Stokes' dinner  on Tuesday. I stared at Amelia for an entire hour without bli

Looking in;

Susanna R.
United States
I am a true, living, breathing, honest-to-goodness Oxymoron.
I am the geek in the library happily reading biographies and how-to manuals, who reads micropaedias for fun but always takes home children's picture books, because they hold the best art.
I am a perpetual procrastinator, except when someone else is depending on me, when I'm always right on time.
I am a visual Artist who has know what it's like to be blind.
I am a Pessimistic Optimist with Realist tendencies.
My spirit forgot to grow up.

Current Residence: Texas
Shell of choice: Nautilus
Wallpaper of choice: Changes every day
Skin of choice: My own.
Personal Quote: Life is better with sound effects.
Hello to Friends Old and New!

Life can be funny thing; one day your a lonely, depressed, socially awkward recluse, and the next you realize that if you want things to change, the best place to start is with yourself. So you reevaluate, reorganize and reconnoiter. You get up, go out, and start giving of yourself; instead of expecting Others to help you, you seek out ways to help Others. You meet Someone. You start to talk, and they aren't scared off by how different you are. Maybe you even become friends. They invite you into their life, introduce you to new people, new experiences, new ways of looking at things, and slowly, your world starts to change.  

That, my Friends, is the main reason why I've not been posting new artwork or journals for the last year; my life has become so incredibly full, in the best possible ways. :) And while I miss having the time to create new art myself or to browse and be inspired by all the amazing art being uploaded on this wonderful site, I think it is more important for me to concentrate on growing and expanding my horizons  in the real world now, and am convinced that  it will only serve to enrich my mind and improve my Vision when I do take up a pen or pencil to create again.

Thus, for the foreseeable future, my Hiatus will continue, but I do want you to know that I still treasure every comment, every fave and every watch y'all give to me, and every Friend I've had the pleasure to make while on this site. :D

I just had the biggest jaw drop reading your deviant ID because I used to say this a lot too: "I'm a pessimistic optimist with realist tendencies" I've never seen anyone who also says it so I had a tiny squealing moment there. 

Anyway, beautiful gallery and very nice designs :)
