You need not find

to take the
edge off of your efforts.
[You simply must do it.]
With a pace and poignancy

For if not you,
there is someone out there
who'll love it to the
miniscule iotas

all these

maybe in a new
way next time.

Stockholm syndrome
and similarly I do think
that this time
and times past
do ravage the psyche
who constantly thinks uncomfortably and irrevocably resorts to the emotional
when the logical
when the pragmatic
and when the wishful
in solace.
It was what I found
in my cage
in the occasion
and in the related chains
and broken wings
as I continue to a new era
with different faded scars
than before
I miss
the original chains
then and now
love them and that security in captivity
prior to this dosage
of living.
and in times to come
where I think and feel
an effervescent battle within
and need more time
and that they're light years from me
perhaps I'll need 
new parts
for my conscience and cuffs
Because I wasn't sick then
and I'm not now
I'm shaking
in the sinister face
of what is to come.

Queen V.
I love it when you smile
your laughter pulls me away
from what paranoia the world may lead me to think
more riveting than any sonata.
You teach the intangible
through action and looks
that range in message-type like “what’re you on about?”
to “that’s the stuff, munchkin”.
You claim the soul you carry
is ironically black like your real leather jacket
but you represent nothing of the connotations’ life
you exude light
and love
that I try to pass on
in my work
in my play
in the times I try to bend your cheeks
to make room for your smile
which echoes your blessed resilient heart
stronger than any ocean.

to indulge in
that pickled honeycomb
vision of arcane.
Who fluffs the
cotton in the
air threatening to
dry the lungs
of the innocent
glamour, who's blind
and always mute.
It's a cliché but
stalking heat of
truth that they
fight with each
glance their way.
To beckon forth
the siren who'll
silence them eternally
will save face.
they're scared to love.

Away from me
Your split visage
accepts me so gorgeously.
With your eyes reflecting adoring,
yet gracious,
and your smile bravely connecting
the words to heart.
Take it.
You deserve nothing less
and I am blessed to
know the smooth and clunky
spectacle of a person
you so lovingly are.
Take it.
The growl of the anxious
the depressed
the hesitant
the self-roasting
feel it bubble wrap
the gentle muffle
of the price popping within.
Take it.
Savour the sweeteners
that are the
truths in your window panes
and where I sit
at your windowsill
is the paper weight
of reminders.
Take it.
Repetitiveness of the hypocritically close
I should hope
in spite of it all you'll accept more
to come from me.
To hear and validate

Running through my hands
Rotting, stinking sandpit
at the kindergarten.
The communal land of grit
far from home
is filled to the brim.
It will get into
all the crevices
and travel the years
an unreactive spectator.
In the land of childish
frivolity, no imagination was
cuffed to its cage, no toy
left unplayed.
No insult left undelivered
and the out of water
salty perfume lingering.
Long since, sunken through
the skin
such bitter and salt

the heart
of the one trying
to walk away.

My favourites from around DA, come and browse!



Made with pride by the DeviantArt community

Wow me, I got tagged by the awesome H0p3-t0-D13 - feeling quite special today I am a dummy! I'm normally a little shy about these, but I appreciate it heaps, thank you H0p3!Hug 

- Answer 13 questions made by the person who tagged you, and make your own 13 questions for those you tag.
- Tag 13 deviants. Make sure they know they are tagged. Sherlock Holmes 
- Don't say "you're tagged if you read this".
- It is forbidden not to tag anyone.
- No tagging back.

1. Tell me about a time you really appreciated your shoes. 
Shoes are ace man. So many different styles, such power to really make an outfit, and different fits on the foot - when I'm out and I'm in the shoe section, I just quietly gaze at some, I fear. Whenever I wear some that are a little more fancy, I appreciate how they somehow look decent on me, that they last for hours, and how they make me feel. For a more specific time, I had a formal in Year 11, and the shoes I wore (black, versatile, slick) served me well through dancing four odd hours into the night.

2. What's your favorite summer food, and why? 
Dont be annoyed when I tell you I don't know please. I don't often think of food being season-specific other than some soups being more cosy for colder weather and for barbecues being for a nice summer. Even then, my family events often have a barbecue where we cook and eat delicious Greek food La la la la So, I would have to say barbecue, for lack of anything else more creative!

3. Do you post your artistry anywhere else? 
*flails hand at you cutie H0p3* Aw you. No, I am only posting my stuff in DeviantArt. Ain't no other, I - I - I need no other. However, of you post elsewhere, let me know so I can follow it!

4. Do you like salad? Any kind counts, but you should be specific. 
I lurve salad. However, as any other, I have standards and needs for my salads when they're not homemade. I'm not necessarily a fan of raw tomato, for instance. As for specific salads... I cannot think of salads with names that I have actually tried, like Caesar for instance. But I'll eat salad with you, don't worry. I also like fruit salad, and now I am craving it haha!

5. Call or text? 
I generally text, but I encourage calls if it's serious/urgent/you need to actually talk.

6. Ever had a run-in with the police? Can you tell me about it? 
In primary school, a kid's mum came in to talk about her work as a policewoman. Otherwise, nope *knocks wood*.

7. What kind of shows do you watch on tv? (If you don't, what do you do with your spare time?) 
I don't really TV anymore, but I'll turn to Netflix if there's a show people in my life need me to watch - home has grown a humongous collection of movies over the years so I'm spoilt for options. I love a variety of genres! In my spare time, I try to get myself organised, I read, write, or catch up on some channels on YouTube, and I also hang out here! ((I make it to the gym when I can))

8. Jewelry person or nah? 
I am, I suppose. My ears are pierced, so they're ready to change from my sleepers to something fancier, and when I've an event I make an effort with some bling, generally. Jewellery, too, is special as an accessory. 

9. When you sleep is it better to be too warm or too cold? fluffyblanketsforthewin 
Sometimes this first world struggle is too real. Look, I will say I would rather it be a too cold than too warm, since too much heat is worse than being freezing at night. Warm nights are great, but summer here can yeild nights where you're sweating, tossing, and suffering in your own skin all night. I have a thin/thick doona as needed La la la la  

10. Are you experimental with your art? Would you try a different medium from your preferred one once in a while? 
I try to be! Years ago I would actually draw/sketch with pencil on paper, and when I write cards I generally cover the left-hand side of the card with drawings/comics/comments, but I lost the time, will, and dilusion of skill to continue drawing. These notebooks are still around, and I intend to make use of them as I did with my Masked Kanji series, for example. Outside of this, I want to keep an open mindset; I always try to change my poems up in content, style, voice, etc. because we will all get headaches otherwise, and dA allows for some opportunities to play around with different mediums :D The folks I watch are plenty inspiring too.

11. Fond of antiques? Or more modern? i'm a typewriter person myself i even got an electric one from an old lady 
OOOOH SHOW US sounds incredible! I'm still finding my style in the world, but I generally find more modern styles to be more pleasing than overly vintage/retro stuff. But I love both worlds. Interesting question, thank you!

12. Rather read old books or new books? (Or both or neither i suppose) 
Both of them all please thank you goodnight. I've a busy year, so there has been no time to read for pleasure, but know I would if I could. Look out, local library! 

13. Do you have any superstitions? Can I read about them? 
I find it hard to separate superstitions from traditions, which often end up holding each other's hands. Most of the ye olde ones like "seven years bad luck from breaking a mirror", or "fear the black cat" or something don't resonate with me, they're more interesting to me than anything else. 
I don't have anything underneath my bed, stored or otherwise, if that answers the question - I can't think of any!

Thank you heaps for the interesting questions, and for tagging me! Hug 

I now tag the following awesome souls (who hopefully haven't been tagged already, by god peeps are swift):

((If you do not wish to respond to this tag, then by all means do not worry about it!))

And your questions are:
1: Do you enjoy your week, or pine for the weekend?
2: Have you ever been overseas?
3: Do you enjoy Asian, or a particular, cuisine?
4: Why did you chose the username you did?
5: Do you have trouble sleeping?
6: If you could give a stranger some advice, what would you say to them?
7: Are you a collector of something?
8: Have you ever had a time where you really appreciated your hands?
9: Do you wear a watch?
10: Do you enjoy reading? Do you prefer any particular genre?
11: Why did you join DeviantArt?
12: Any short-term goals (that maybe we can help with)?
13: What do you look forward to, whether it be tomorrow, this month, this year?

Feel free to fill this out if you want to!

Have a wonderful week peeps!
