winter to springthe air is cool, crispwinter to spring by itselliegasp
everything is high-definition, high-resolution, 1080p
i can see a thousand shades of mauve and plum filtering through the clouds
a thick greyness sets in across the sky,
wisps of flimsy clouds dissipating slowly
i can see every smudge of velvety charcoal that trails behind them
i'm in mourning
my knees are bent, my neck and shoulders arching forward
staring at the lines in my hands
watching memories in my mind like i pressed fast forward on a VHS tape
nothing takes the breath right out of me
like remembering how happy i once was
The clouds are chromeby itselliegasp
You smeared the silver across the sky with the pad of your thumb
And the heel of your palm imprinted into the mountainside,
azure reflections of the canal show your eyes blinking heavily back at you
Thick lashes move like swaying tree branches in southerly winds, like my resolve they are velvety yet wiry, and intermingle as your soft lavender lids stretch shut
Fog travels slowly, settles between the mountaintops
You are so cold your breath travels like smoky tendrils escaping from the frosted corners of your timidly parted lips
Limbs like lumber
Arch across my horizon,
If you are a god, I am the land you look over
Your tears are my rainfall,
Your smile my sun
And your eyes my moonlight
you could noti am enclosed within arms bent,you could not by itselliegasp
like baby bird wings
orange petuniastulips shroud me
i am enclosed within petals curled,
curling like my devil lips
i string cursives but i curse
scarlet streams and ribbons running down my frame
thoughts like ice i am
italicised ; you frost me into 45 degrees of
feet firmly planted on the ground
earth between my toes
rise up and shoot stems, sweep me off my heels
pelvis lodged firmly into a garden bed now
i look up and the trees laugh at me overhead
sun's beating down you know like
fiery shards of melting jealousy into my lungs
my ribcage is screaming and screaming sore at me screaming
"STOP HURTING EVERYTHING" and "STOP HURTING
ME, PLEASE please?" poor ribs i can't fathom
what might be were you to be made of pearl and opal,
naught for bone, could you maybe protect me just a little longer
and maybe nature's way wouldn't sever me so hungrily
preywhy is itprey by itselliegasp
that your name still makes my heart skip such a painful beat
that my chest should constrict so tightly, so viciously
a fist, clawed
wrapping around my heart in such a twist
the curve of my breast
never seemed so soft in this dim light
should your fingers trail upon my surface,
should your gaze grace mine once more
i couldn't bare to think
of the way my knees would shake
and the way i would fall by you -
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
That would be 6 years
What does your username mean?
Honestly it's quite embarrassing - I mean, I was 13 when I came up with it. Being socially excluded a lot at the time, I often dreamt about being accepted and even looked up to by those around me. I always dreamt that maybe one day I could walk down the street and people would say, "It's Ellie!" and gasp. I know, very very embarrassing.
