Most great poems tell a story,
Teach a lesson,
Add something to the world
That was always there
But needed to be remembered.

This isn’t a great poem.
This is just the realisation
That one day
You let go of my hand.

And never picked it up again.
144 deviations
I can taste a forest fire
In the back of my throat.
No amount of Saline can wash it away

Ash is trailing into my lungs,
Lining my breaths,
And staining me grey.

Machines cry out an alarm,
They're saying my name,
But there are no firefighters left.

Bury me in the ash.

(Let new roots tangle in my ribs)
She toes the edges of sunlight,
Tanning her fingers
As they play with ever-changing shadows.
This dark dweller,
This star searcher,
She is not afraid of the light,
She is not daunted.

She is a shadow,
A layer of grey
On a black backdrop.
She was not made for light,
She was made by light,
An inevitable consequence,
A weight to keep the balance.

Is your heart lighter than a feather?
Does it shine?
Would you blind Anubis?
Would he admit you to the skies?
Would your light guide men home?
Because you are judged.

Show the world your light,
Embrace the shadows you create,
Be a religious experience
Without the gods to intervene.
Be a light that lasts
Long after the wick has burnt away.
Be glorious.
We Are Judged.
This one definitely seemed to have a life of it's own. 
Benn thinking about the Egyptians a lot at the moment, remembered how confused I was when I was first told about Anubis weighing a persons heart against a feather, because it seemed an impossible test. Started wondering whether I was looking at it wrong.

Anyway, let me know what you think.
Happy Birthday DA!!

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    5 years now, which makes me feel really old.

  2. What does your username mean?

    Shhh . . . I was young and silly when I made it, the secret will stay with me forever.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    Hopeful. Trying. Disorganised.

  4. Are you left or right handed?


  5. What was your first deviation?

    Wow, it's so long ago I can't really remember. It wasn't good though, probably lurking in the back of my gallery and scaring unsuspecting pigeons. 

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    Literature, mainly poems at the moment but I love writing books as well. 

    And I make a bit of jewellery which is fun.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    Painting, in it's many different styles.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    Of my own work? Not a clue any longer, though I can still remember how excited I was.

    Of someone else work? Well that would be Alexiuss and his piece Gabriel.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Everything under the sun, I love it all.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    Probably Alexiuss and Len-Yan.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    Someone who likes my writing and maybe wants to write something together. There's really very few things as uplifting as talking to someone who really appreciates what you're creating and wants to talk about it.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    Yes. He's been invaluable.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    Red ink pens and paper.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    Anywhere really, so long as I feel safe.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    I've got to admit, finding out I had a DA was incredible, and a bit silly. I hadn't even noticed that I'd been given the DA until someone congratulated me, I was just confused about why one of my poems was suddenly so popular. But when I realised? Wow.
