Literature
Luxury of Syllables and Lettered Butterfly Images
What, indeed, then is a word but
 ink of breath and sound of thought
 painting blossom strings of flowing raining photographs
 gradients of color blissfully drowning the page prompted by flames in your head
The luxury of syllables and lettered butterfly images
 flying away for as soon as they briefly rest tired wings of language
 they must be gone, vanishing disappearances of watercolor flashes
 making way for that next thought of gorgeous fleeting visual jumble
For those who drip emotion through the brush of fingers
 across the canvas snow white page, empty but for what will be
 letting themselves become nothing but channels of artful feeling
Misty selfless beings floating through nothing until
 again the poem is done.

Literature
Cease, Silence
There’s something about
the fall of words upon
the page
that slowly
slowly calms, setting
a silent rhythm
to my fingers
to my pen.
It may be the click
of keys that
induce the mind
humming to
cease, silence.
Chattering gone
and footsteps fading
because all that matters
are the letters
tumbling together
until every word
makes no sense
but yet
somehow it makes
all the sense
in the world.

Literature
Cat
A regular lion in a formalwear tuxedo
       and teeny tiny form
Grooming whiskers white and long
And giant yellow eyes that could have anyone a mix of
              pear, chartreuse, and lime-green with envy
Lying with snow-white tummy to the sky
But then, no, it’s time for Halloween
Bottle-brush tail and arched ink-black back for the predator much larger than she is
The mice she chases across wooden floors
       might not be real; but let’s face it, she’ll kill them with just as much vengeance
       as if they were really alive and nibbling at the oh-so-precious food in her dish
But now it is nap time and squished-up face and unbrushed fur
       battle with half-open dark eyes
As she rolls herself into a fur-ball, nose tucked and paws curled
Twitching from the dream upon the grassy savannah
Where the tiny formal lion stalks gazelle.

Alone | Chapter 3
Sola
My head hurts. A lot. As if it’s been cracked open. In fact, everywhere hurts.
It hurts so much that I’m forced to ignore the notion that I could possibly go back to sleep again, although I feel drowsy. I reluctantly open my eyes.
Light. Not bright light, just a soft glow. Like it’s far, far away.
Except the light is pretty close, it’s just muffled.
Yes, there’s something on my face, which the light is filtering through. I reach up to yank it off–
“Ow!” I curl up in a ball, panting. My ribs…they hurt, as I breathe they shoot more pain through me…
“Awake, then?”
The covering over my eyes is lifted. I open my eyes as I feel sweat trickle down my face. Two dark blue eyes stare into mine.
“Leitaf…Murand.”
He sits back, looking away. Flickering firelight from the tiny flames in the fireplace barely illuminates the dark room. It must be nighttime.
“Why do I hurt so much?”
“You

Aiden
I stand where Sola left me in the dust. I guess I shouldn’t have expected anything more. Sola Daley isn’t a damsel in distress waiting to be swept off her feet.
I clench my fists. But why does she have to push everyone away? At least some of what I’d said was true.
“Tough, Furzey. Guess your crush hates you.”
My fingernails draw blood. “What are you doing still here?” Murand is leaning against the doorframe, arms folded.
“Thought I’d stick around and see the show.”
“You knew what I was going to say?” I scoff. “Come on, Murand, don’t flatter yourself to be all-knowing.”
“I’m far from all-knowing. Just intelligent enough to read the signs.”
“Shut up. Just…”
“Yeah, yeah. All those nice words you say to people you hate, all strung up in one sentence. I know what you’re trying to say.”
“Why’d she bother you so much?” He may

Literature
Perfect
Perfect is “as good as it is possible to be”
According to the dictionary  
As good as possible is all you can do
So does that make you perfect? I’m not sure because
There’s something perfect in the way everything is
And nothing is an imperfection because there really is no such thing
Flaw, defect, deficiency, fault
All apparently synonyms for imperfection
A word that exists because if we realized that everything was perfect
Nothing would be
And we would never feel anything
In the face of the perfect world.

It Hurts
It hurts
Because I thought you were something you’re not
Why
Why did she tell me?
Why didn’t you?
 
Why did you do it?
Why
Why does it hurt so much
Why didn’t it come from you?
 
Before you, I was confident
I thought I was attractive
I thought I wasn’t bad
But now I realize
What if I’m not?
 
Why do you have to bring out these stupid insecurities?
Why do you have to make me feel like a stupid
Idiotic
Naive
Little girl
Who believes that everything is good
And happy endings actually happen?
 
It really hurts
I didn’t believe it.
I didn’t believe her.
But I believe it when I hear it from two of my friends
Who you seem to talk to
To be more open with
Than me
 
I thought we were at least friends
But then you told me we were something more
You held my hand
Slow danced with me
I felt so swept up
 
I was in love
With you
You said you were too
With me
 
What happened?
Why
Why
Why?

The Journey to Believing
Just a small town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She watches the lights go on in the street and listens to one, two cars drive past, then silence.
She wants to get out of here and find somewhere where life can be better. Where there can actually be people who care about her. Nothing is here for her.
It’s time.
She took the midnight train
Goin’ anywhere
She hugs her bag close and listens to the bustle of the station, standing in line, looking up to the clock mounted in the wall above the doors.
She gets to the counter and drops the bills she’s saved on the plastic surface.
“Where to, sweet?”
She pauses, uncertain. The clock strikes midnight and the teller watches her jaw tighten. “Anywhere.”
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He doesn’t care about anything anymore. This stupid city with his stupid “friends” and all the stupid people living in it.
He can

Magic
My little cousin
Has always believed in magic.
Come to think of it, I did too.
At first.
But then came the pain
Of the outside world
Real, crushing, overwhelming.
Making my dreams
Of everything being Disney
Seem like the faraway fantasy
Of a two year old
Instead of a ten year old.
That was years ago.
I gave it up.
Figured out that the dreams
Were just that:
Dreams.
True love and living and perfection
And magic
Aren’t real.
Everyone fights and everyone dies
Nothing is perfect
And magic doesn’t exist.
It almost felt cruel to let me be naïve
And then take it all away.
But
That one day
Of my cousin’s sixth birthday party
When the girl dressed up as Cinderella’s fairy godmother came out
And gave all the party guests ball gowns
“Summoned” fairy helpers
And did their hair and makeup
And I saw my cousin’s face glowing and grinning
As they stepped outside to have cake and open presents
The sparkle in her eyes free of knowing
Of the real worl

For You to Know
I loved you once
So much.
Told you so
And you laughed.
Tried to show you
But it didn’t work.
How much must I sacrifice
To show you
To prove to you
To get through to you:
I love you
Still
So much.
I’d do anything
For you to realize.
If I died for you
Would you cry for me?
If I sacrificed myself
All of me
For you
            to
               know
Would you
Love me in return?

Rain
it patters on the roof
as we look at each other
and laugh
under the rain
so many years ago
although it seems like hours
you asked me on a date
under the rain
years ago
i grabbed you by the shirt
and kissed you for the first time
and told you i wasn’t going to hold back
anymore
you chuckled and kissed me back
and said you had wanted to kiss me first
under the rain
years ago
weeks later
you made up for not kissing me first
you kissed me so gently
again
and asked me to be your girl
under the rain
and now
in the picnic house
away from the rain
you touch your lips to mine
pick me up and take me out into the rain
and
under the rain
you pull out a ring.

I am many things. Writer/editor, reader, actor, and artist are the most prevalent.

:iconpointcommissionsopen: :icontradesopen: :iconrequestsask: :icongiftsask:

I've decided to try out literature and poem commissions and trades!
I might make gifts/do requests for friends.

500 words and under for stories, for now, until I get the hang of it. If I just so happen to end up writing more than 500 words, I won't charge extra.

Example: The Melody of the Garden Angel (commission)dolore intro
My existence never made much of a difference to my parents.
I guess that’s why I ended up running away. And why I’m now standing on this smog-filled city street.
I pull my cap over my face, trying to regain my breath from running so far, and slide down to sit against one of the factories that seem to be taking over all the empty space.
A faint breath of wind blows my way and something small and white drifts to land at my feet.
A flower petal. No, two. Three.
I stand and follow the trail cautiously down the darkening street. Where do they come from?
The lamplighters have already come and gone, and the white, wilted petals glow in the lamps’ light.
As I look up to find the petals’ source, a greenhouse dwarfs me.
I never would have thought to find one in the middle of the city.
I creep forward and try the door. It opens under my hand.
I know where I’ll sleep tonight.
crescendo poco a poco
It’s too bright.
I rub my eyes


Work I'm doing now:

Nothing! :iconforeveraloneplz: PLEASE COMMISSION ME! PLEASE!

--
:bulletgreen:=In progress
:bulletblue:=Finished
:bulletred:=On hold
--

Rules I'd Like to Stick to:

:bulletblack: When I send you a note saying I'll accept your commission, which I will send after you outline what kind of commission you'd like, is when I'd like you to pay.

:bulletblack: I'll write rated R content for upwards of my original price. We can discuss mature content you'd like and decide what you'd like to pay.

:bulletblack: I'll always try to finish my commissions ASAP. Please gently remind me if you feel I'm being slow. I will let you know if I can't get something finished on time.

Please NOTE me if you want anything! I'll send you some questions I have, thanks! :love:

--

I CAN and WILL reject commissions if I do not want to do them for whatever reason. But stick to the rules, be polite, and you've got absolutely nothing to worry about!
omg why am I back here it's been 3 years since I logged in and much more since I touched this embarrassing old thing brb fixing it all to not be so terrible and embarrassing

also rip me nozmo and todd allison and the petunia violet is gone and over as of yesterday I think I found it here in 2012 and it meant so much to me ;_; it's kind of why I logged in again because I was all weepy and nostalgic I'm so sad
