I have been forced to use mature filtering because the excessive fetish art on DA upsets me. Now I cannot even see some of my own figurative artworks! I am therefore removing my mature content filter on all my own figurative drawings & paintings that DO NOT have any visible sexual organs (ie breasts as I do not draw anything more explicit than that). If this is not in keeping with DA rules, please let me know.

Once, she dreamt of gentle hands
and deep ocean soulmate,
promised dwelling of protective wings;
clothing herself in sanctuary
eyes wide with wonder and innocence.

Yet, this half-tamed heart,
wounded bird betrayed by one called home
bled fire-red over cool bars of her nest,
blazing a defiant path
through pain and fearful shame.

Now, she roosts on ashy grave,
loving and hating this lonely life
grown weary from flying
yet unable to escape the shadows
that stretch talons in her heart.

How can one who has both flown from
and burnt her nest
hope to build another,
to gather twigs like memories
and soften them with down?

Heart flutters in cage of chest,
startling at every sound
every touch brushes naked, bleeding scars
until once again she clothes herself
in phoenix fiery garb.
