Making days and moments
In which an hour
A second
The blink of an eye against the pull of forever
All measured by
The regular ticking
Of an unprecedented evaluation
Of a human being
Inside the cage
That is
Their fragile, delicate form.

I love how they breath.
So carefully,
As if they may break
If their lungs fill up completely.

Sometimes I wonder what would occur
If they did breath
Until their complex lungs
Press against
Their matchstick ribs.

Would she remember how to live again?
Would he remember how to smile?
They would all break down
In tears
Because their reality
Has expanded beyond that little portion
That they allow themselves to believe in.

Tick tick tick.
They seem to enjoy counting.
Counting each day
Waiting for the one
That results in that sturdy
Organic measure of time ceasing
To count.

Somehow they fear it,
These humans.
They fear the day their time-piece stops.
Yet only count it so that they
Can suggest how many more
Beats they have.
They spend their lives in measured moments
Some fly,
Some fall,
Some forget.
Yet none of them last

I have a great dislike for this new layout of dA....
Some days
We stand as tall as mountains,
Unwavering and strong
Against the unrelenting,
Howling wind.

Some days
We crouch lower than the grass,
Shivering and hiding,
Shrinking from the unrelenting,
Howling wind.

Some days
We just sit there,
We let the wind,
Unrelenting, howling wind,
Wash round us,
Through us,
Into us.

It is those days
That we are cold,
Unseeing, unfeeling and
Crying with the unrelenting,
Howling wind.
Heart in my chest.
Yes you with your incessant,
your constant
thump, Thump, THUMP!
Yes you with your racing
your erratic
beating when I'm anxious.
Yes you.
Heart in my chest.

Why do you beat so quickly
over something we do 
It's routine, you know.
To hear you in my ears
loudly proclaiming your fear
of the world.

I must ask,
how you keep going
even when I panic
so much that I can't see.
And you get so fast
racing, something.
So determined
that I think you might just
break free this time.

Sorry for all the heartbreak,
and the aching
and the times I've ignored you,
and the times that I haven't.
You seem to speak such sense,
but then what am I to know.
Just keep beating.

When you go quiet
just before sleep.
And I fear I have lost you,
but no.
There you are.
but there.

Thank you for sticking with me,
through all of the crazy things,
the anxiety,
the butterflies,
the calmness,
the exercise that neither of us like.
Yes you.
Heart in my chest.
Thank you.
Autumn Walk by Leafscatter
Autumn Walk
The canvas edition/final piece of Autumn Walk. Produced for the 'Landscape' topic for my GCSE art in which we had to study an artist and produce a final piece in their style. My artist was Leonid Afremov.

This is my own work, acrylic and tissue paper on canvas, produced in about 5 hours.

Personal Quote: A life without pencils is not a life worth drawing!
"Is this a journal from Leafscatter!? She never updates anything."
Why yes non existent voice! I am writing a journal in the interest of my followers and friends who I fail to keep in contact with on here.

Very busy times at the moment, but do not fear for I am producing artworks, it's just a hassle to post them up on here. oops, i did it again... 
So currently with my school art stuff I'm studying the wonderful Leonid Afremov's work, but my art teacher is really strict about what we are and aren't allowed to do so almost everything we're producing is very uncreative (much to my dislike). Though I will post some of my stuff up on here soon.
My family are also renovating our spare bedroom into an art studio :yay: so I'll actually have a space to do my painting and whatnot, I am also on the hunt for a new laptop so digital art is on hold til then. 

Current Projects: School Work :study: , 'Colour of My Tears' Watercolour Series :painter: and a purple tartan skater skirt!  Sewing Emote

I'll try and upload some things soon, but for now I seem to update my photography over at Embrace-The-Night so go check that out if you'd like! Thanks guys :)
