I ALWAYS look at the gallery of whoever comments, says hello, or even drops by for a quick visit. YOU are my source of inspiration :gallery:

It’s like counting
Saturn’s rings,
hash marks
along your limbs -
remembering a time
‘just one more’
made you feel better.
- & you’re sitting there
wondering why
Draco, stuck in limbo
always looks like he’s

i wake up with bits of Orion
still stuck between my teeth.
& i grin, remembering
the face of every lover
i’ve managed unscathed,
to crawl out from underneath.
‘ad astra’ inked into ankle bones
like little wings, Pluto’s underworld
ripe, coursing through my veins:
i stake claim to clavicles.
devouring shivers
between the constellations
of tongues & weak limbs,
i get off
on all the ways mere mortals
beg me to sacrifice them
to the heavens.

reasons to love a shy girl
i. men fear strong women,
but she's far from strong.
this wisp of a girl
doesn't even need a hurricane
to fall apart.
she'd glued and re-glued,
old bonds wearing thin,
but if you ask politely,
she'll let you touch her scars.
ii. her lips are fettered in rusted chains.
you'd need a crowbar to pry up
her whispered secrets.
you are not worthy to hear her voice
just as she is not worthy to give it to you.
she told me everything she knows,
and i shut it away,
kept it safe.
i tied the threads into double knots
just to make sure
they wouldn't curl away from me,
twisted up like a dead spider's legs.
iii. she is hewn from shadow,
woven from grains of sand.
you might think she'd flow,
breeze by on a sparrow's breath,
but she's never been good at
anything but sinking.
she is buried treasure, and all
the things you wish you could forget.
iv. you found her washed up on the shore,
drawing pictures of her flickering soul,
and knew she was too unsteady to love.
when you reached for her heart,
your han

Moving: A Yadu
We keep a home
Of unknown hums
And lonely cats.
The sky cracks but
He lacks a raincoat.
Fueled by smoke and
Words he lands on
A branded street,
Knows the sweet rage
Of meeting too soon and late.
This town belongs
To a song man
And wrongful ghost.
He is most sure
The coast will fade their remnants.

Resolution Diary
Make first million after starting own business.
:bulletblack: Applied for a loan. Declined due to excessive account activity. Note: Constant purchasing of rare (albeit mint) wicker chairs is not conducive to bank balance. Wife insistent on selling wicker chairs to find money to start business.
:bulletblack: Bought new donut recipe book. Learnt how to make category hard donut, 'Diamond Swizzler'. Delma loves them.
:bulletblack: James offered to lend the money if he can become a business partner. Potential.
:bulletblack: First million still a long way off. Wife still nagging.
:bulletblack: Spent savings on replacing the roof of the conservatory when neighbor's tree uprooted in the November storm.
Update: Dogs should never be fed over two donuts a day. Next Year's Resolution likely…? Find enough money to take Delma to the vets. And make more realistic resolution idea.
Find an appropriate business idea.

dirty pretty poems
Cold tea-cups jumped
off the table when I opened my eyes this morning.
They must not like the sound of my eyelashes crashing into eachother
and must know how sometimes
oxygen feels too far from our sinking lungs.
When my hipbones became loose hinges,
half sliced off and a sore-thumb view, it did not occur to me
that I was ill, just a little bit below the floorboards
with the taps of people walking above, nobody ever knows
when I am there.
I believe that wine bottles mean something different
for everyone
and for me it is not just a delightfully fruity
drink to sip with friends, it is a two pm lecture I cannot build up courage to go to
and pretending my head is in the clouds when really it is with my heart
under the table and wine bottles are just another way of saying
my red eyes are locked in a drawer with black underwear and sad songs
and I do not want to let them out today --
the wine is all gone now
and so am I.
Paintings are beautiful and I want to draw your eyebrows in

Long time no post!

First of all I am SO glad we can now change our dA names if we have premium membership! Goodbye awful old name and hello real name!

So whats new?

I have handed in my final piece of University work EVER. Scary huh? Exhibition opens on the 1st of June at University of Wales, Newport's new City Centre Campus. Anyone is welcome (I've heard there will be free wine?)

I am staying in Newport for one more year. I have been elected to be Vice President and Communications Officer for Newport's Students Union! So basically I get paid £14k a year to do some advertising, look after a TV and Radio Station and re-launch a student magazine. Can't complain really!

I have met someone new and wonderful and he is officially my boyfriend (because apparently Facebook means it's official!) He is a lovely beardy northern man who lives in Cardiff and makes the most wonderfully surreal films ever.

All in all, everything is going really well. Just can't wait to get stuck in and get on with stuff!

So c'mon old friends. Share some stuff, whats the best thing to happen to you this year so far?
