The sky, in cool grey,
Bears the stillborn light of morning.
And I,
in a sense - innocence -
Bore witness to a gentler flame
- bloodied lips and softer words -
That barely spoke your name...
Now,
Lying in the lulling curve
(Glazed eyes and quicker breath)
Should shudder twice
And stop in death...
'The sky, in cool grey'
A short piece done at work.
Loading...
It's been a long time since I was on DeviantArt, a good couple years actually.  I never really stopped making art but I did stop sharing it for a good long while, I guess now just feels like a good time to return.

I'm glad to be back, perhaps I can make something of myself while I'm here this time, though I'm just as satisfied to provide something of enjoyment to anyone willing to take a peek at my work.

Enjoy your stay!

--James
To wicker words,
Sharp tongues and broken things -
The 4am buzz of powerlines,
In the hush of an alleyway morning.
Should a thought
Breech the murky calm,
Stillborn words in the skyscraper forest -
That I,
Ever conscious to sweeter tones,
Would find peace in its quiet drone -
Where softer breath should rest
         and moan...
In December,
the cold brush of your embrace
leaves tangent memories, ephemeral,
to tease and tantalize
in darker notions - A truer love -
Should your lips, cracked,
bleeding in the early sky,
grace mine in their gentle pout -
And I, naive and longing,
would rush to meet them.
A tragedy in white and grey
To stay true, my love,
As we fade away...

I am a writer and musician. At times I enjoy dabbling in visual art but mostly stick to writing. Perhaps we can chat sometime, I feel its best to get to know someone through some form of interaction.
