Newest Deviations





I want to live in a sprawling house at the top of a mountain, where I can watch the sun sink below and then float to the surface of the sky, the air dusky and hazy but still somehow so clear.

I want to watch storms play with trees like twigs, crack lightning like whips to make the bruised clots of clouds thunder by like scared stallions. I want to hold you closer to me, let the candles be our stars tonight as the rain begins to rush down.

I want to let afternoon meander into evening while I lay with you in the hammock in our backyard, let it swing gently in the breeze, the only sound nature: no cars, no television, just you and me and life. It will be night suddenly, cold and crisp and effervescent, and as you stare at the stars, I will stare at you (because you are my star).

I want to fill our sprawling house with children and grandchildren. I want to create with you, to try to make someone else so I can hope they feel the feelings I feel with you.

I want to go on adventures with you—no, I want you to be the adventure I go on. I want you to be my constant inspiration, my eternally beautiful muse (except you already are). I want to please you, make you happy, make you proud, make you know how I love you, make love.

And in our sprawling house with our tribe of children—and grandchildren—when our lives are too busy to do much more than pass each other in the kitchen or on the stairs or at the front door, when by the time we each can finally climb into bed, we find the other already asleep…when that happens, know that I still love you, know that I will let my fingers trail against your body as we move past each other with too many things on our minds, because I can’t bear to see you and not touch you. We will see each other again, but, until then, let this embrace, let this kiss, speak against the time we have missed.

We will be with each other again. We will grow old together. We will watch sunsets and storms, hear laughter and life: we will know love in all its forms. I love you.

I want to live with you, but only because I could not imagine living without you.

Who. Am. I. That question of identity, of the self’s place in a comparatively narcissistic society – a society which values the essence of being different as desirable, yet which attempts to be different in the same way…ahem. Sorry. I get carried away sometimes.

I’m afraid I don’t really have an answer, except to say that I’m a university student, studying a double degree of Creative Arts (major: Creative Writing) and Arts (major: English Literatures). I love me some learnin'!

And that I’m a nineteen-year-old Christian (feel free to ask me anything, I don't bite!) who is frustrated with the late release dates of most films in Australian cinemas, who also likes to read (but starts many more books than he finishes), and gets irritated when drivers don’t use their indicators. Tut-tut.

And I’m a Grammar Nazi. That is all.

Words are my life. Dreaming is my fuel. Imagination is my sanity. God's love is my motivation.

I'm a special swing admin over at DailyLitRecognition, so please suggest any good literature pieces you see. More information and my guidelines can be found here.

My birthday badge

Six D L D s, two D D s, and still counting (hopefully)!

You can find me on my blog, tumblr or Twitter!

Also, the picture way up there? Yeah, that was a gift from my good friend MWBlueWolf. He's seriously awesome, and you should take a look at his page!

DLD is now DLR

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 19, 2014, 12:01 AM
Hey everyone!

Just wanted to put up a journal saying that DailyLitDeviations is no more. It's now been replaced by Daily Lit Recognition: :iconlitrecognition:. (I'd like to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to SilverInkblot, who's doing a fantastic job of sorting through the rubble and building a civilisation, phoenix-like from the ashes.) I've volunteered to be a special swing-admin, which means I will fill in for any of the other admins who are absent for whatever reason. However, I can put forward suggested pieces at any time, so feel free to suggest away!

To suggest a piece, simply note me with 'DLR suggestion' in the subject line, and include a link to the deviation, plus a statement detailing why you think the piece is worthy of recognition! (Even one sentence is fine!) Easy as that!

You can suggest poetry or prose, but DLR does not accept fanfiction (sorry!), and I don't accept deviations that form parts of a series (though you should check out VertigoArt and/or callerofcrows because they'll be involved with a bi-monthly article dedicated to chaptered works :w00t:). I tend to go for pieces that say a lot in as few words as possible. I also prefer subtlety over being explicit, though if there's a piece you love, send it my way and I'm sure I'll feel the same way!

Thanks to my watchers, you lovely people! :hug:
I feel like I should do something for you guys, so, if you've read this far, note me a DLR suggestion and say that you watch me somewhere in the message. The first fifteen will get a journal feature! (three journals with five deviants each, or five with three each? Let me know in the comments below!)

  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Mumford & Sons
  • Reading: 'A Game of Thrones' by George R.R. Martin
  • Watching: Friends
  • Eating: Chocolate
  • Drinking: Tea
