i am the whisper in your ear
the god in your skull
the loudest voice in your symphony
and i own you; mind body soul

i'll sew your eyes shut
all you need to see is me
shut your mouth before i cut it open
ask no questions, i'll tell you no lies

i'm the bloodstain at the back of your teeth
and you can't kill me if i'm inside you,
you can't kill me if i do it first
i'm the gem of your life and i'll scrape you off your knees

i'm a fucking saint, i'm a fucking holy ghost.

you're the one who's wrong, never me god forbid.

it's for your own good.
Bookplates by blubbityblub
[School Assignment]

bookplate, also known as ex-librīs [Latin, "from the books of..."], is usually a small print or decorative label pasted into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner. Simple typographical bookplates are termed "booklabels". ((Wikipedia))

The art styles from the Art Deco and Nouveau period were used, and the assignment required us to inject a little of our own flair/attitude/personality to the final work. The Art Deco bookplate features tattoos because I love them, and the Art Nouveau one features roses, of all flowers, because they hold meaning for me.
lmao are any of u actually interested in my life

your ghost and I have learnt to co-exist
and I find that you now reside in me, and I cannot
pull you out of these brittle bones
because sad is comfortable, and so is pain
and I lost my muse when we stopped talking.

I am a tangle of adolescent confusion, and I know it-
forever lost in the what-to-dos, and i think
i just needed a little bit of sunshine;
a kick in the ass to jumpstart my breathing
while I busied myself with getting lost in you

walking in your mountains and pausing by your seas,
I learnt a lot more about people than school ever taught me,
but it seems I've put none of it to use
because your ghost and I have learnt to co-exist,
your shadow graces my side-
the memories flit past my fingers but my soul is exhausted.

I'm tired, and I am sorry,
perhaps the god I do not trust will fix us-
oh, neither artist nor poet nor heaven-sent saint,
all I have to offer you is nothing.

your ghost walks a step behind me, I feel your heavy tread
I look for you in everyone I meet; I doubt you do the same
and it worries me how often I think about dying.
picking up adobe illustrator and photoshop for class. may be posting proper art for the first time ever heh
