Addicted to Heroines
He was addicted to heroines:
those golden queens from screens of silver
that lined his shelves in plastic boxes
showcasing their greatest deeds;
and painted whores,
those sirens and saviors,
who stood half naked on shady streets.
They were steel wrapped in petals,
and petals draped in lace,
in their arms lay warmth,
in their hearts lay escape.
He prayed for strong women
that were not so far,
devastatingly far out of reach.
Though still small,
and grateful,
he would shun the sun
and bask in their blessed shadows.
He prayed for someone to stay
whom he could not,
would not,
use up,
not again,
not again.

He vowed not to use angels,
those sweet Nightingales,
who flew away from him in the end – –
but, oh,
to be high on their bravery!
He was addicted to heroines,
to the ichor in their veins,
and the lift of their wings.
He was a frightened boy
hiding in the hollows
of the shell of a man,
fearful of fractures
from his weakness.
On the verge of breaking:

Czech Republic
MSc student at the Charles University in Prague
I am a zoologist specializing on vertebrate zoology, I am a part of Fish Evo group focusing on sensory systems and their dynamics in evolution of teleost fishes. In my research, I focus on developmental plasticity of vision in freshwater fish species of central Europe, and also work occassionally with cichlids from west Africa.
I consider art being my hobby which I'm unable to give up on. I discovered the oil painting technique at high school and have been practising since then. Although I was born into a family where no one ever created art (nor was the University graduate in any field - except for father), my parents left me be myself, and I consider myself lucky.

Long time no see.

Well, it clearly has been a long time since I have written the last journal entry (which nobody reads, really). I have little to no time (or I have been lazy as fuck, dear reader) to write almost anything. There has not been any progress with my novel since last year; and although I have finished a big canvas which I worked on for two years (I won't add it here since it's heavily inspired by Dusk river by daRoz and I have no permission from the artist whatsoever), I mostly just practice on still life from time to time.

Skull and Pepper by septima-severa     From Neighbour's Garden by septima-severa

Since my camera literally crashed last November, I barely take photos (and cell camera is pure shit), so instead of hunting for best photos, I am hunting for results in my research. It takes time to isolate the DNA and RNA from tissue, and I am so exhausted afterwards that I cannot even finish my sketches for current paintings. However, the main theme for this year seems to be "mermaids" since I have three paintings in mind (with one partially underway). So, let's see if I can finish at least one of them before I leave for international scientific conference in Groningen, Holland.

I won't buy a pre-made canvas again in a long time. I have scarcely seen worse quality...

You're welcome :D I'm starting to like modern poetry that's on DA. It's a way better than that we learnt about at school a long time ago (probably sometimes in the Stone Age) :D
