Within blue eyes
anemone and starfish
abound, and seaweed eyelashes
move leisurely with the tides.
At sunset they sparkle,
lined with golden sand
and swirling without a sure direction,
becoming cloudy as a storm brews.
Beware, anger flashes across the surface,
where riptides catch the unwary
ships and sailors, wrecked
and broken amongst its depths.
Only the brave venture in,
attracted by the untameable,
roaring waves and sharp wind.
Eyes stinging, they enter the battle.
Slowly they themselves become blue,
the cold clinging to their skin,
sucking out all their warmth.
Then white as stone,
lips cracked and filled with salt
that leaves a bitter aftertaste.
Yet, they couldn't feel more alive.
Its only when battered and bruised,
beating back her worst,
do they wear their triumphant smiles.
Hooray, I've gotten up my first piece for April! It's been sitting in the shadows of for a while, and what better than NaPoWriMo to motivate me to polish it up a bit more?

Lay her in the Earth where the flowers dwell,
dancing stems in the wind
and her eye can watch the birds,
distant arrows pointing towards a sun
amongst diaphanous clouds.
She can hardly breathe with wonder,
wrapped in the loving embrace of roots,
their arms around her waist
and fingers in her hair as yours once were.
An easy smile rests on her face
that even the coming sunset cannot dim,
nor storms could wash away,
for although her form is impermanent
her spirit will always be.
Lay her in the Earth
Hurrah, I have uploaded something at last! My inspiration was from this line if Shakespeare: "Lay her in the earth. / And from her fair and unpolluted flesh / May violets spring". I'm thinking it'd be a cool idea to have two other, roughly related, pieces titled the lines that follow from the first one, or even just incorporating those into further stanzas... let's wait and see.

Writing is just one of things I do best spontaneously. It's like trying to plan a water fight - you know that it's going to grow out of control. But that's also the beauty of writing: to see what facet of the unknown it will lead you. Will you traverse the challenging terrains of Eastern forms? Will you dredge up those unsavoury emotions? Personally this element of unknown absolutely captivates me. I hope that my journey will inspire you to pave your own way in literature, through thick and thin, and that when you emerge from the other side you'll be amazed at how much you've grown.

How long has it been? Seriously, I miss you guys *hugs*

I still drop into theWrittenRevolution to keep things running nicely, which, btw, you guys do awesomely :heart:

Right, now here's the obligatory sharing of day-to-day details :meow:

    :bulletorange: Societies are amazing. haha oh CSE camp for having the sleaziest award :XD:
    :bulletorange: I actually like 4 unit maths :O
    :bulletorange: This year reminded me that computing was hard... but also that when you conquer those online activities, nothing compares.

But boy, dat workload. I have to remember to treat myself with a massive binge of online dramas *cough* Faith *cough* and put some solid effort into finishing Bioshock. It sits there on the shelf, staring at me, but I'm like "I'm sorry I have to study" *dies*

Now without much ado, here is some flash fiction:
Can you hear me? Wheezing, skin flush and eyes bright, feet hungering for the pitter-pat of running, the relief of adrenaline ringing in my ears. I'm star bright, and I know I'll burn. I'll go from solid to gaseous, never stopping to gather myself because the world is at my fingertips. We'll collide, and our grains will become the same; I'll claim you, claim you as my fingerprint: the one and only.

You're welcome, and quoting Erika, "Jade is amazing, you won't regret it", and that's just the kind of stuff I like to read on the odd moments I'm on dA :tighthug:

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
