Seaside Solicities
Your love was a tidal wave.
Although I craved the ocean
and the smell of sea salt,
I stayed submerged for too long
and have forgotten
how to breathe.
Aching for gills
won't make them appear,
and loving you
won't keep me from drowning.

The Artist
She's always been an artist,
since before pre-k.
She'd paint with ice and fire,
moulding earth into clay.
Her notebook filled with drawings
you'd never guess to be
works of a child,
barely passing three.
The grade school teachers
marked assignments with a P,
standing for 'potential;'
this they failed to see:
Each drawing in the columns
that peers left pristine,
was where her thoughts hid,
she would never be machine.
On her thirteenth birthday,
the paintings took a turn.
Results of a divorce
that left her deeply burned.
Now painting images
too disturbing for her age,
stemming from strangled thoughts,
trapped in a cage.
As years progressed,
so did her troubled soul.
Old friends turned their back on her,
their comments took control.
She'd think about each piercing ache,
but where to begin?
Her paintbrush now a razor;
the canvas, her pale skin.
She put her pretty markings
where only she could see,
whispering things she wished she was,
but knew could never be.
This new release of  feel

Seven Vials
I am seated at the end of a long table, seven vials of liquid in front of me, each in a variety of bold colours. A steady pounding in my chest reminds me I'm still alive, still present. My eyes flicker to the security camera set up in the corner of the room. It's a constant reminder that I'm being watched, that any wrong move could mean the end of me. I don't get out of here until I consume one vial, that's what the document had said. And I'm forbidden to have a taste from more than one.
The year is 2308, and crime rates have increased dramatically within the last hundred years. I wish I could say it's awful and people should stop and smarten up, but that would be hypocritical. You see, I'm a thief. I'm not a bad person, I don't think. But this world has become too expensive to live in, and mortality rates have dropped disturbingly low. Some people must steal to survive. And that's where the vials come in.
Prisons had filled up decades ago, and there was no more room to fit anybody who

I create art constantly. Here's where I'll post thinks that don't look or read half bad. I will post digital art, short stories, poetry, sketches, paintings...whatever tickles my fancy. Enjoy I guess?
