reprise

standing on a ledge
looking at the abyss
we’re old friends
meeting once more
the darkness familiar
velvet comfort
a night without a star
echo to the black 
whispering in my head
leading back to a past
dead and buried
that will not stay quiet
returning like a ghost
on those days
when the walls are thin
and the heart is weak
we’re old friends
the call intimate
so easy to give in
so hard to let go
and still I stand
on this ledge
looking down
into my own eyes.

as the years go by

dewy skin from a pot
brushed on like light
and years rinsed off
like they never were
for a moment only
until you pretend to
smile away the tears
and the wrinkles reappear
amongst the pearls
of sorrow and grief
that even makeup
cannot hide completely
a mask to convince yourself
all is not lost
there still is life to live
treasure to find
a heart to fill
with joy and happiness
until then
there’s the happy ever after
advertised on tv
and the golden glow
from the bottle
to tidy away the grey
of the years already gone.

Icarus - The Romance Version

A new piece based on my original Icarus - The Yearning. It’s one of my favourite images and I thought it was time for an update. 

This is a mix of a photo I took of five feathers, which I then edited in Photoshop to look like a painting and overlaid with vintage images of wings and a Delft blue colour. It reminded me of Delft porcelain and the delicate blue designs you find on that.
