no poetry

i am not a poet
these are not poems
it is just
that i have spilled
my angst
all over the page
vomited my emotions
with pen & brush
let loose
my haunted
demons
my most lovely
beasties
they wrap & wind
&
let me know
i am never
alone
not so long
as i have that pen
& brush
my torment
&
my cursed
hope.

    I love the way you did the hand! You have shown so many interesting, cool, and creative ways to draw a self portrait it blows me away! I would love to do that but my accuracy with features kind of sucks. Maybe more practice….!
