my mouth is filling with sand

my brother used to tell me to hold my breath until i could hear the ocean in my head. and i did, it was a soft roar of sky fighting sea. eventually when my eyes rolled back like waves, he would make me breathe so i didn't drown. he was always there to tell me to breathe out but now he is gone and i am forgetting how to. we were very young when our father died (fell from a cliff photographing the moon) and our mother started dating the milkman. he was gangly man with white hair but otherwise very handsome. we didn't mind him at all. he made our mother smile and brought warm milk every night. but we missed our father and his stories about sta

how to make your dreams come true

how to make your dreams come true

i remember being a child. this long-haired, twiggy thing with delicious dreams of becoming a movie starlet or a princess. of course, you're not entirely logical when you are that young. your head is in the clouds and the future is a million miles away. i think when the clouds begin to clear and you start to see the future there in the sky, you begin to grow up. life begins to sink in. you realise you are not beautiful or elegant enough to become a princess, and your eyes don't sparkle enough to be a movie star. try again. even though my clouds cleared away sooner than anyone else i knew my age, i was still breathing them. only suddenly i kne

deviantart, why do you still love me?

i'm sorry for all the quiet! see, i go through periods of quietness and loudness. sometimes i want to be nothing. i'm a child and all the attention is overwhelming to me. instead of breathing i just close my eyes and pretend it doesn't exist. but it doesn't go away and i feel guilty, like a lover that keeps coming back to me after i ignore him and treat him like he isn't real, and i know i don't deserve it. but i don't want to be a hermit right now. i have a lot of new work. not as much as much as i'd like. but a lot you're yet to see. most of it is for magazine editorial, so i'm not allowed to show. which is horrible (until it comes out).
