what sort of lover were you when you were 19 or 21? are you any different now?
i miss deviantart. life has been _______ lately. i've been away and for now, i'll just be posting stuff when i have stuff to share, ok?
rise and shinedaybreak is a vialrise and shine by toxic-nebulae
of liquid amber
spilt out against the sky
when I wake up.
there is enough warmth
between us, I think,
to coax the very sun
the press of you
against my back, the
swell of you
within my chest.
and perhaps the sun awakens
to see the breath and motion
of people like us,
drowsy in our crowds
you stir behind me,
and it blinks
its bleary eyes.
God is...i met God at the laudromatGod is... by draecana
(one of those unassuming little places,
with cracked, but not peeling, linoleum tiles
and white walls partially covered
with do-it-yourself wooden paneling,
joined to a salon like the ones
your grandmother would frequent,
back when hair stylists
were only hairdressers.)
and He was so lonely looking
He smiled when i bought m&m's
(peanut, my favourite)
as if He knew i only bought them
because of the retro vending machine.
(it took nickels and dimes,
and you pulled a little knob
to get anything from it.)
together, we listened to the thrum of the dryers
and the click of buttons and zippers
tumbling against their insides.
we sat there quietly,
and i thought about all those God-fearing people,
all that lip service and smiles on Sundays,
but those same lips would make a deal with the Devil,
or anyone else who could get them ahead in this fleeting world.
and maybe i'm too cynical
(i know not everyone is like this),
but i met God at the laundromat
thanks for the inspiration! i couldn't get enough of all your talents. wish i were half as good. i am new here, am still finding my way around, am in the process of figuring out what to do... but let me start by admiring your pieces of art!
here's to waking up happy,
i do allow myself the luxury of dreaming
one day, life will be more than just getting by;
my art could take me somewhere nice;
i'll tend my own garden or farm
and live in my own house baking and decorating and enjoying the quiet.
and i will wake up happy (with you).
