some of my gems and things 😊 #minerals
Mermaid for sketch_dailies! I was going to draw one anyway so yeah
When I look at you, my insides scream.
You live in the illusion:
believe what you hear,
deny what you see.
Would you believe what you’ve heard?
That’s the sound of the monster
who doesn’t just live under your bed—-
who lies awake in your wallet your TV,
your American dream. Your mirror.
He growls and snarls his teeth to scare you
when you try to escape.
But you love his pearly whites,
ignoring the crimson that drips from his tongue.
Meanwhile, I dance with flowers around my head,
a beaming smile on my face.
Freedom in my mind, and my body that sways in the rain.
Your black umbrella makes the sky seem darker.
Your feet squish, squash against leather, plastic, rubber.
You walk with your head down
when you could be engulfed in this sustenance:
water that trails down my face
and somehow makes it up to the clouds again.
I’m interested in now.
The clouds burst with tears that nourish the earth.
I drink, I smile.
We bump ways, and you push me to the side.
