it trembles, a
crooked form caught
in a black sea,
its surface
stagnant now – the
still waters rumble
with the passing of cars and
unmoving eyes, casting deep
shadows over its
small
broken body

alone and
weary

it croaks, a feathery wing outstretched,
reaching
a mouth, wide open

unable to utter a single
cry

First time writing poetry in a little over a year.
It's been awhile.


I plan to make this visual later on, but yah.

EDIT: So apparently this hit front page, on Popular - 8 hours. (I was wondering where all these favs were coming from, haha.) Thank you for the support, guys~

Also, sorry for making this rather depressing, haha..

EDIT 2: Front page 24 hours? Holy. @_@
EDIT 3: Front page 3 days;aldkfjksdlf.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in youReply

This is an incredible idea; I would have loved to write about this! (don't worry, though, i won't knowing you have)

You've executed it very nicely, on top of that. Extremely powerful and quiet. Very nice. Better than most any of the other stuff I've read here, and I've read a lot of new works and popular works.

Hehe, well, you could always approach the same theme another way. x)

Actually, yes. A doodle, but mine all the same, haha.
I don't really have a link to it apart from the one here though... may I ask what you need it for? I'm just curious. xD

And thank you~

I actually wanted to use it as a desktop wallpaper, if it would be okay with you. It's very pretty. :)

And you're very welcome!

That is touching. I always felt bad when I saw roadkill, but I will never look at it the same way now, even if I forget your art. This is something that stays with you no matter what.
