53 deviations
She came with me, you see.
Swallowed whole, licked her lips.
Juice stained her mouth.
She bared her sharp little teeth and asked for more.
My bird-boned bride with a lion’s heart-
I am tender with her.
She soothes and comforts, encompasses and intoxicates,
The dearest demon I’ve ever seen.
I have never loved the light;
It has been harsh and hot and there was nothing I wanted there.
But she is full of earth, of growing things.
She carries golden summer in her laugh.
When above is barren, she is warm.
She is so alive.

Souls drift through my land, solitary and silent.
(What sad creatures these men become.)
When they wail in the night, I press my knees to the ground,
Listening for her voice at my gates.
Wait, she calls. Soon.

She sweeps in with the first of the rains,
As the trees sway, dancing their autumnal rhythm,
As the leaves whither and fall,
As the petals collapse into memories.
Her ivy fingers twine in my hair and I twine around her.
The storm breaks.
I touch her and I am home.
Goodness gracious, everyone. dA never fails to make me feel so loved and appreciated. Really and truly, I am so honored by my third DD on Exhale! I absolutely can't believe the lovely comments and faves I've gotten from you all. I am the luckiest girl in the world. :heart:

Much love to SilverInkblot for suggesting the piece! :tighthug:

I realize I've been posting a deviation every few months and a journal about twice a year. As most of you know, I'm not all that active on dA anymore, but that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate every single comment, fave, llama, watch, etc. just as much as ever. :icongrouphugplz:


Updates on my life in general: 
:bulletblue: One year of college down, three more to go. It was such a busy, strange year and I wouldn't have missed it for anything. 
:bulletblue: My family moved to a new apartment! I got rid of a ton of stuff, which is good. De-cluttering every now and then is healthy.
:bulletblue: I'm working two jobs this summer, plus babysitting. (We getting money!! Not a lot though!!)
:bulletblue: I'm seeing this lovely human being next month and I absolutely can not wait.
:bulletblue: Trying to stay as hydrated as possible! 
:bulletblue: I'm happy. :heart:

As always, feel free to follow me on my tumblr

So how are you guys? I hope you're all happy and doing awesome things this summer. :la:

Always, 
Indigo

Mama,
You could make everything but me grow and bloom and blossom.
I always loved  things more when they were wounded, dying, dead.
Do you remember, mama?
I would crouch in the dirt with some pitiful wounded creature,
Waiting and watching as it shuddered and squeaked and died.
I buried them with my own hands, mud caking my hands.
There are shadows you never saw in me, mama, but he does.
He reaches for them and they reach for him and I am happy.
When we kiss, I can taste pomegranate on his lips.
It is bitter and red. I could drink and drink forever.
Nothing about him scares me.
I am the only one who can make him stop howling.
He says he hears them all the time - the souls, mama -
But I bring him peace.
Who wouldn't want such power?
I used to bruise like petals as a child, but not anymore.
I am his and he is mine and, mama,
I am finally, finally mine.
I’ll see you come spring.

I read like an absolute maniac. Music is my oxygen. I'm a hope(less) romantic. I love meeting new people and trying new things because there's just so much in life. I will always and forever be figuring things out and there are some things I'll never figure out, but that's okay. I will dance to any kind of music, with anyone, and anywhere. Even if I don't know the lyrics, I'll try to sing along with them at the top of my lungs. My friends are the most wonderful people in the universe. My family puts up with me like no one else, and I love them for it. I believe in magic, love, the impossible being possible, and that everyone has a skeleton or twelve in their closet.
I don't think that I'd like to be anyone else but me.

I measure life in love.

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart

You're very kind for all of those! I'm sorry for being so late, I haven't spent a lot of time here in the past few weeks, or months, or something. :heart:

We must catch up soon! I hope you're well. :)

You're quite welcome!

I'm not on here much anymore either, but I check in every few weeks for various housekeeping things.

I hope you're doing well, too!
