One, 2, three
And it crumbles apart.
How do I tell you I love you,
if I am neutral,
We've pulled away.
You to your life of numbers,
of perfect wholeness.
And I'm running away.
One step at a time,
One bottle, one experience.
And you don't understand,
I don't want you to.
My eyes are open,
But not to what you see,
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 1 5
Music gives the rhythm
You dance your dance together,
Pirouettes and twirls.
And I dance mine,
In different circles,
With different music
And a different style.
And the world keeps on turning,
And the sky is open still.
And the sun just keeps on burning
And the winter keeps its chill.
And I just keep on dancing.
One more step, a bow, a smile.
Remembering how it was,
And dreaming how it will be.

Wishes :iconwhildchild:whildchild 3 4
Almost baby
I mourn
a "seven-and-a-half-pound-brown-eyed-red-haired"
Which I couldn't have kept,
would never have held,
never have seen.
Why can't I forget?

For You
The stars are always shining.
They burn and flame. Immortal, like a phoenix,
Dying to be reborn, another star. A new dream.
The stars are always shining.
They are blazing, just for you -
Eternal. A symbol for your hopes, your dreams.
The stars are always shining.
So, stretch your hands a little further,
Just reach.
Capture your star.

Eyes open
Sall incredibly exciting
This life business
This living business
This consciousness business
This waking-up-in-the-morning business
This feeling-the-floor-beneath-your-feet business
This water-running-through-your-hands business
This heart-beating-in-your-chest business
This hopelessly-terrifiedly-helplessly-in-love business
This finding-a-home-and-not-just-a-place-to-sleep business
This growing-up business
This alcohol-rushing-through-your-veins business
Sall incredibly exciting.
But inexplicably terrifying.

I hear her talk about salads and weigh-ins,
I watch her cycle and laugh,
I see her glee at losing weight.
Why can't I be happy for her?
I resent that she can lose
And that it doesn't represent
A fall backward,
Down the rabbit hole.
I am melting under the heat of my anger,
I am frozen as inaction surrounds me,
I am trapped in a cage make of books and decisions,
I am lost in a world in my mind.
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 4 0
I am a changeling child.
I lost myself,
And found half of me.
The missing half
Haunts my dreams,
Who could I be?
If I was whole,
Untouched, perfect,
Not so out of place.
Not so lost.
Hopeful, yet despairing,
Head still full of space.
My heart is healing
So is my soul.
My hurt is easing,
Not in the cold.
And yet,
Why am I so cold?
I am a changeling child,
And the world is still
too full of suffering,
more than I can understand.
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 3 2
According to him
He tells me
That i am beautiful
And my head is screaming "LIES"
My heart is whispering "truth"
And my common sense
Flies out the window.
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 1 4
I want to run away with you,
Kiss you,
Hold you.
Run away from real life,
And fall in love,
And remember why life was so great.
I want to keep this happiness
in my heart forever,
And never let you go.
I want this to be perfect.
I want you to be perfect,
But no one really is,
And I'm afraid I'll realise that.
It will be ok.
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 7 8
She Whispers.
Fairy godmother, hidden curse,
Wishes of heaven, but so much worse,
Stomach empty, utter bliss,
I miss her.
And the mirror yells at me,
And I do not wish to see
That this could be better,
I miss her.
I can't bear her,
I know what she would prefer,
She would keep me,
But I need to miss her.
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 4 11
I'm here,
Waiting for the days, the nights,
The times that will make it all alright.
I'm sick of waiting.
I want quick fixes and magic spells
Instant ways out of a hell,
All of my own devising.
And i see my arms, my wrists
My hands balled up in fists
And all I want is to be perfect.
And I have to change something now
And I have to see something move.
I need to start everything, again.
All over again.

A letter to Karen, aged 7 :iconwhildchild:whildchild 8 7
A Christmas Gift
"She'll give you the money, if you..."
"If I get rid of her. Course she'd say that!" He bowed his head guiltily and she pressed her forehead to the window, her red lips leaving berry stains on the window of his office. She straightened up and stretched her arms back. It was only then he saw the bulge against the loose fabric. "I can't, not just for the money."
"How far along are you?"
She smiled. "About 4 months. She's growing well too. I really do understand what Joy said about morning sickness though. How is Laurie?"
"Doing well. He just had his third birthday. He was asking for you."
"I miss that boy. And his mum's doing well? You're treating Joy well, right?"
"Yes, of course. I love that woman. What about the child's father? Is he still a part of your life?"
"No, not once I got pregnant. I couldn't keep living like that..."
"Sometimes, I think I should have told her, the first time I had to bring you home. Maybe then you wouldn't be in this state and I would still be able to get yo

He tears my heart out through my back,
hands it to be on a cracked glass plate
expecting salvation in the form of
kind words, redemtion.
wash, rinse, repeat.
the pressure on my lungs increases
my heart pounds painfully in
the cavity which once only held love
for him, for all,
which now lays empty except for the place where love still hides
clinging unflinchingly, nurtured by love of people
friends, family, them.
Red swirls mark the path his hands once took
over hips, waist, ribs.
I wish it would stop.
:iconwhildchild:whildchild 1 8
the cold is spreading.
I still love you.
I can never love you again.
The bitch whispers in my ears and all I can do is scream at her to stop.
Sometimes, I wonder would it be fair,
to press kisses to his lips.
To wrap his arms around me, whisper endearments in his ear.
But then I see him, and know. He's too precious,
to crush, torment, ignore,
to ruin - as before.
She still grates my ears, my head, my soul,
She still feels she is above
such things are moral dignity and self-worth.
But I know its all beyond her.
She'll regret it in the end.

Random Favourites

Sorceress Contest
The new contest arrived. If you like fantasy, sorceresses and witches, you should have fun with the theme. This is creative contest, which means you have a lot of freedom in design. Of course there aresome basic rules that you have to follow. The contest is a big one so no need to hurry - I prefer quality over quantity.
The subject is my OC Rascandra. She is an old witch but she looks like a beautiful young woman. Rascandra rules over fantasy land Kszunn and is Queen of the North (did I hear "OZ"?). You can rely on Wizard of Oz, Stardust, Tin Man and other witches - she is spawn of my witchy fascination.
Here is my written description of Rascandra, I think it holds all important facts that you need to start the work. But I am always here to answer every question:
I have also commissioned pieces. I commissioned more so you will find later lot of new images of my witch, just check:

I want to see something really creative, I want you to let me relate to the feeling you're trying to show in your artwork.

Pikachuuu :iconznuese:Znuese 6,076 826
—i know they don’t want me to jump—
I have forever harbored inside me a fascination with edges.  
My first memories are of standing on a cliff, wanting oh so badly for it to crumble under my feet.  I saw a line separating earth and sky, and an urge rose in my chest to blur it.
This feeling of always being on the very tip of reality, wishing I could lose my balance and plummet, only intensified as I grew older.  I found such sweetness in thoughts of stepping over sidewalk cracks to plunge into a world with nowhere left to stand on.
At the same time I was afraid normal boys didn’t think of falling as I did, didn’t want its escape from the cold, rigid ground.  So I never mentioned it to anyone.  But I didn’t want to stop the desire blossoming inside me.  I feigned interest in hiking and went out looking for the highest places to lose myself.

Journal History

I do believe… sums up my college experience so far.
Random songs, Russian and fangirling. Although we can't find a song for Putin...
I am really enjoying college, even if just for the difference in like pace.
Loving the classes, hating the homework though.
But it's all good.

Most awkward thing atm, is that Paula and Chambers have split up.
And Chambers really isn't taking it well...
And Elaine took it upon herself to inform Shane that Paula doesn't miss him at all, that he was a burden on her.
(This is a semi lie, she does miss him, but he was a lot of time).
Hence he's going a bit mental.
Ah well...
