I will give you paradise
I’ll build you a heaven
A field                                                    with            more     flowers
                                                        Than           lie        on              a
A thousand blooms   basking
In afternoon sun

The violence of healing
Turbid blood begins to flitter.
Free it from the narrow
            vessels. Let it scatter
                      like sparrows.
Let them flit, let them twitter,
      all the chimeras in whose talons they squeak.
Reach into my mouldering chest,
  run a claw
        down  my ribs,
          the ribbons of rust from its cage.
Blow the bud
       of my heartbeat to blossom,
         to erupt with the power of rage.
Brush the dust off my hair to glitter.
Bluster it into a gale.
     the frail cobwebs and eight-legged critters
           lying cocooned in their nests.
Let them protest,
     like blind fi

I'm drowning in dawnlight
Her pupils glisten – lifeless steel.
Shallow breaths float hesitant
like daybreak breeze along the keel of
a forsaken boat moored in a pool
of vacancy. Her matted mind
strains to recall the silhouettes of souls
and apparitions:
rising haze above the gleaming skin of
river’s limbs. Thawed by dawn
her edges smear cloudy where
the sunrays sketch and scribble.
Dew drops dribble from a
willow’s fingers over
her face in the mirror. The close
draws nearer. Not a murmur to caress
the surface. Nor a
teal to scissor the reflection.
Nothing left to feel but yawning
and engulfing static, a soft glove
she slips slowly into, growing intangible, almost
prismatic. Stems, and leaves, and flowers of dawnlight
shower her motionless
eyelids. No more than a wisp of
life expires from her last breath
as she flows oh so serenely
to her deafening and blinding outfall.

Check out the first forum feature I made  Forum findings featureForums have always been a bit confusing for me, for whatever reason, but I recently braved into dA's forum to try and popularize my stuff a little bit and I found some gems, that I'd love to share with more people. These are all artists who shared their art there like me, looking for a bigger platform to display their work so if you like them, go and leave a few supportive words on their page or a constructive comment.

So I've braved the forums again and found some more really outstanding art that gives me the butterflies. Please give these amazing artists some love and feel free to also check out some of my stuff that I am super awkward about promoting. :D
