[Poem] Friendly Fire

Lonely eyes meet over a bloody battlefield
Weapons are sheathed
A shield is lowered
Layers of armour drift to the dirt

Bodies are drawn together
Pulses quicken, blood races
Breathing becomes gasping
Wounds become pale scars

A figure emerges through the mist
And after everything she gave
Jagged steel, wielded in a friendly fist
Sends a healthy heart to an early grave

[Painting] Just A Flower

Finished this one today. It tool me about 24 hours all in all and is acrylic on canvas. Only did it to decorate the boring wall above my desk in work.

[Painting] Rose

The colours don't show up on this very well, but hopefully it gives you a good idea of how it looks and the size of it. It's acrylic on canvas and I painted it around August 2005.

[Poem] Lost at sea

I wake inches from the sand
The bed of rock tears my skin

Waves swamp each panicked breath
And as I endure the rising tide
Salt scrubs deep cuts in soft flesh

Yesterday I rode waves with you
On and on they carried us
Until you pushed me under

Nothing kept me afloat
Onto the shore I was cruelly tossed
To be dashed against jagged edges

My heart was lost at sea
Every deluge terrifies me
