see my hair dance wild as wind-strings jerk it about//hear the ocean-wind heave itself against us all- crashing into our eyes and mouth//feel the winter-wind brush our skins in summer//then inhale the heaviness of air and sink through the dirt- because darling, you don’t deserve god’s beautiful violence.

(it drags the tree by its leaves saying kiss your trunk, kiss it and it does; releasing with a snap. the other trees flitter-flutter violently, crying within the cacophony of rain on concrete. white stars fall where light exists, and only sound where it disappears. the sky -the colour of sunburnt skin- watches it all with hunger. and then a moment we are swallowed. gumtrees, rain, earth; we are all night sky now. but our eyes open and the rain is no more, dew on grass. and the wind is no more, only breath.)
i let the storm soak through until it ran down in rivers down my skin. never leave, i ached, the world is ours in moments like this. then the wind made promises it wouldn't keep in my ears.
and the storm was no more, only me.

The imagery in this is superb. Everything is spoken in angry, hushed words that can rise to a scream, then fall down to no more of a breath.
I favorite this for the sound.

Ha I never read anything posted on Deviantart. Your stuff is the only stuff I read. One time a piece showed up in my messages and I read the first line and was hooked. Now I get excited whenever I see a photo or a piece of writing posted by you.

I mean damn, your writing gives me chills. I envy you in so many ways.
