~Intrusive Thoughts~

Bury the children standing up so they can grow up big and strong like an oak tree,
or so you used to say to get them to drink their milk.
you'll see some of those tiny hands holding sea shells,
bullet shell casings for others but we'll read about them somewhere.

The most heartbreaking truths are hardest to try and hide,
a mother's voice can mean pain if she brings grief but she won't leave,
or that Little Johnny found his dad's porn magazines too early
and lost his innocence before he could enjoy it.

It's getting cold now, it's time to shut the door,
I can't reach what I want but I can taste and feel it as though it were right here,
maybe it's the moon making me crazy but I held someone's hand last night,
now every feeling from now on will be a disappointment.

It's almost midnight and escapism is all I have to look forward to.

Helicopters fly over head like bothersome flies,
he's pulling knives out of his back like splinters,
and he really hates it when I don't say anything,
but all I can think about is preserving something fragile,
I am staring into space letting life happen without me.

The morning news is telling us that a storm is headed this way,
and blood tastes like pennies,
he's been walking around with holes in his back for a lot of years,
and he helps me through the fog on my worst days,
but I don't like what I see and I'm trying to wash it off...

It's not helping.

He fills me up where I am mended,
I'm finding it harder and harder to trust anyone
they've all given me very little reason to do so,
because they were looking for me out there,
and I can't escape the mundane.

Recovery © J-Goth/Amanda P.
I've been in a state of recovery for years over things I will never get over. The only thing keeping me here is the love I fabricated because I can't love myself and I can't trust anyone else to do it. 
soon. :)
We're going to focus on what's important for a while. Thank you.
~Ugly Little Butterflies~

The wind spreads the seeds all around
sends them shuffling around
like dead maggots in the dirt

The bleeding heart that found the rum
forgot all about the bottom of the glass

waiting is all that matters
and washes away
what bled through earlier today

Your work is incredible. I've never seen anything like it. You deserve many faves. Do you do commissions?
JohnPatience Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014
Thanks very much indeed.
No I'm afraid I don't do commissions. I was a professional illustrator for about thirty years and worked to meet publishers requirements, now I'm retired and have only myself to please; I like it that way.  :)

Ah! That's understandable. I would hate to wear out something I love to do and I feel like doing it to please people is something that would put me in that direction. I always ask a new artist I find if I could buy something from them to show my support. However, I think you have more experience and talent than I could afford so you're good. I'll just go on admiring what I see here. And thank you.
