Cry for You
I don't like crying.
It's wet and messy
And makes my eyes puff up and redden,
But I want to cry for you.
I want the world to cry for you.
You could melt the coldest of hearts
And make a stranger feel at home
With just one look
And an offering of your warmth.
You shared your love with everyone.
The lifetime with you
Seemed shorter than your final hour,
Thinking of you alone in the clinic,
Wishing you were in my arms,
Wishing I could cuddle the cancer away...
And now it feels wrong
To still have to eat and work
And do stupid mundane things
In a world without you,
When I only want to cry for you.
And so if the world must turn
You must stay alive
In stories and photos of you,
Until everyone knows you and loves you
And misses you as much as we do.
You brought us so much happiness, little man,
And someday I'll be happy you're at peace.
But for now
I'll cry for you.

Too Much Eyeliner
She wore too much eyeliner
Around those ice blue eyes.
Dark hair, pale skin contrasted.
Her M-shaped lips
were adorned by a silver ring
to the interest of many of the boys...
She listened to Slipknot and Lady GaGa.
She wore revealing tops and Doc Martins.
She loved to talk,
She loved to laugh,
She loved to be listened to.
The boys wanted her,
The girls wanted to be her.
Those who hated were jealous,
Those who loved were loyal.
She trod on many hearts
And boasted to eager unplucked cherries.
She could have any boy she wanted
But she wanted him.
He wasn't like the rest
Fauning for her attention
Like a desperate drooling dog.
She flashed her best smile for him.
Saved her best stories for him.
She wanted him to want her.
Wanted him to think
that she was fun and sexy and interesting,
Like everyone else did...
And then one day she did something right.
He laughed and took her hand and held her close.
Heart and butterflies fluttered,
She would not say she was in love,
So she smiled that stunni

Day 9 - Person I wish to meet
Dear fate,
If you were a person I wish to meet you.  I want to tell you and ask you so much.  
Firstly, I want to slap you for making me a shy anti social nerd.  Thanks a lot.  I was completely  incompetent at making friends till I was 18.
Secondly, landing me with acute tonsilitis 3 times a year when I'm too old to get a tonsilectomy?  You have a sick sense of humor.
And what's with the whole taking my creative streak away?  I miss that.  It made me feel special, being able to write and draw beautiful things.  And now I'm left with a blank slate.  I'm back in Limbo trying to figure myself out all over again.
I think you had plans for me.  I was going somewhere, somewhere I could make something of myself.  But somewhere along the way you gave up on me, and all I am now is your abandoned project, sitting in the attic with much other junk.
I have to know that at least t

Day 8 - Dear Internet Friends
Dear fave internet friend,
Well, really this letter is a shout out to ALL my internet friends.  I'm so happy to have found you and have the pleasure to talk to you.  You are all very interesting people, with different lives and ambitions.  It's good to meet people from different countries.  Ten years ago it was only possible by travel.  We've connected impossible bridges between cultures through the magic of the internet.  And yeah, that sounds corny, but being able to talk to someone in America without it costing 12 quid a minute
is pretty awesome.
  
Anyway, to my internet friends, I'm glad to have met you.  I wish you all the best in life and thanks for letting me get to know you, and for taking the time to know me.
All the best,
Your internet friend

Day seven - Dear Ex
Dear ex,
  It was probably a good thing it ended....I think it should have ended long before it did,  but what happened happened and the past can't be changed.  When I think back to where we went wrong, I think it was that we held on for too long. As much as I loved you, I actually didn't want to be in a relationship.  I was too young and restless to be tied down by serious feelings.  But I did love you, which made it hard to let you go.
  I'm glad we stayed friends.  It's awkward for most exes to stay friends with each other.  I think
we work it well.  We keep enough distance to not be fooled by our feelings, and yet we still
have a decent rapport.  I'm happy how things turned out for both of us.
From your ex.

Day six - Dear Stranger
Dear Stranger,
  That's exactly what you are...strange.  You pick the same doorstep (I'm sure isn't your own) every week to sit and listen to your MP3 player...asking for change from passersby.
  You remind me of another stranger from a different town.  He was an old man with a radio and a
deckchair which he would carry around town until he found a spot to sit and listen to the radio.  The difference with him however, was that he never paid attention to the world around him.  He seemed to be in his own world with the radio in the background...  I often wonder who you people are....
From a stranger.

Day five - Dear Dreams
Dear Dreams,
Where'd you go?  You used to be with me all the time, on my mind and by my side. I've searched  for you for so long.  Maybe it's time you searched for me.  Please come back. I miss you.
From me.

Day four - Dear Sister
Dear Sister,
    It's fair to say we've sort of grown apart since I moved out.  I have my life and you have yours.  But I'll always be there for sisterly advice.  What you're going through now, I've done it all  before and I'm just a text or MSN away from sharing my worldly wisdom.
    Despite growing up together, I think we've grown into two different people. But that's ok.  That's the way it should be really. And we always have our inside jokes from our childhood, the kind of stuff only you and I would understand (he hasta smack it first).  I think that's what makes our bond so special that we have our own secret club and passwords that no one knows about.  And there are things that happen, just random occurrences, that remind me of something we used to do together, and it always makes me smile or laugh out loud.  And people think I'm crazy cos if I simply explained

Day three - Dear Parents
Dear Parents,
I know you're already proud of me, even though I have accomplished so little.  I promise I will give you a reason to be proud someday.
Thanks for everything you have done for me and I hope to return the favour later in life.  
I know you miss me living at home, but trust me, I think we get along much better when we don't live together...  On that note, thanks for putting up with me and my tantrums, my hormonal teen years and restlessness to fly the coop.  Congratulations on raising a complete basket case, but I know you wouldn't have me any other way... I wouldn't change a thing about you either.
Love from your daughter

Day two - Dear Crush
Dear crush,
This is me writing to you 2 years after I made you mine... or rather you made me yours...
Of course I wouldn't admit how I felt then, not really anyway.  I was too proud to admit having fallen for the charismatic ladies man type.  But when you talked about other girls, tried to be with other girls, I screamed inside everytime.  And when I was with other guys, all I wanted you to do was punch them and declare that I was yours, cos that's what you guys do.
But no, you let me have my fun and I let you have yours.  What a game we played.  Love chicken, that's what it was.  Two of us too proud to confess our feelings and all we got from it was misery.
And then when you left, I finally let you go.  I was ready to start getting over you which was easier when you weren't around.
I got my tongue pierced that weekend to distract me from lonliness.  Well I guess it worked cos all I could think about was th

Day one - Dear Best Friend
Dear best friend,
       I guess I can call you my best friend in that I spend more time with you than others. I just figured that the relationship between my best friend and I would be more intimate, like sharing secrets and stuff...  I guess I tell you stuff.  Not all of it though...even though I'm sure you'd understand... I guess it's embarressing for me to open up on a level higher than I normally would....especially to a guy.  
       But anyway...nah I say you're my best friend.  You help me out when I need it most and even though I don't have much to give in return, you know I would if I could. 
 
Just promise me you won't leave me for superficial reasons, like finding someone more "popular" to befriend or something...cos that's totally lame...and I'd miss you.
Anyway, thanks for everything and thanks for just being there when I needed it most.

Release
Scream the misery from your lungs,
Drain your body of black
And don't spare a drop.
Rip rusted chains
That weighed you down
And rise to your feet.
Shred the negatives,
Familiar red eyes
And forget their leer.
Take a sponge,
Soak up dark clouds,
Let the sun blissfully blind.
Breathe in freshest air,
Oxygenate stale blood
And let it flow through you.
Lie beneath azure skies
And don't fight
The smile they bring.

The Bitch
her fury alone is enough
to burst her straight jacket
as she thrashes against
padded walls
she curses the bitch
that put her there
in a cell
like a criminal
like an animal
each time she throws
herself against a wall
i can feel it
beneath my temples
her scream reaches my vocal chords
but i swallow it
before it escapes my lips
this enfuriates her more
her eyes wild
her breath ragged
she kicks
and screams
and swears at me
"Why'd you put me in here, bitch?" she cries.
"Because," I say, "I don't want to be a bitch."

Testing one, two...

Ahem!

Hello?

*blows dust off DA account*

Hi to anyone reading this. Apparently I've been a Deviant for 10 years! =O  As you've probably surmised by my absence, there's been a distinct lack of arting in my life. And also I'm a grown up! I have a job and a mortgage. Such adulting! Wow!  

Man, all my work here is so ancient it barely even represents me anymore. My account could probably do with a makeover. I am sad that I lost touch with some of my old friends here but activity did seem to dwindle around the time the site started to get flooded with porn. Such a shame really. I remember DA used to be this wondrous place I would spend hours browsing and appreciating everyone's beautiful art. And the community was so nice! Oh well. 

I hope everyone is good. Maybe you'll see new stuff from me in the future.

Take care!
