I have now been o Deviant Art for a whole year... Throughout the year I've discovered some amazing talents and lovely people.
I have also been blessed with a bunch of watchers who are amazing artists themselves, which is more than I could have asked for. To show my appreciation to these wonderful artists, I have created this feature with some of my favorite works by them!
Sleeping on the GravelWhen first I arrived at the ruined gates,
My handkerchief covering my mouth,
I saw you cursing the heavens for the last time.
Tears were trickling down your cheeks
As you tried to stagger away,
The smell of cabernet on your skin.
All and sundry gathered to gaze
Through the fields of drying flowers.
The concrete garden with tarnish,
Her angels stained with age.
We are sleeping on the gravel tonight.
The fresh soil was overpowering,
My eyes could not remain silent any longer.
Tiny crystals made their homes
Beneath the pools of hazel.
You held my body to yours.
We sip to them tonight, as they dine in hell.
The Tell Tale HeartI feel the rhythm of his heart,
beneath the boards the beating starts;
as reason from my mind departs,
I fall apart, I fall apart.
The men who knocked upon my door,
not knowing what's beneath my floor
will want to settle up the score -
I do implore, I do implore
This guilt breaks conscience with my lie -
my wracking sobs and wretched sighs.
I never meant for him to die.
It was his eye, it was his eye!
There are so many other artists who I wanted to feature... but it would take hours!
