i never had a sandpit to play in,
i never had a garden to tumble around
i never had a camping trip, and
i've never seen clean waters;
only litter-speckled sand and ships rolling with the tides
i never had the life of quiet joy,
but neither have i seen the glamour
of this ragged dry city -

oh, the world tires me, and the people wear me out
i wonder if this whirligig mind of mine
will ever slow down, and give me a rest
and i wonder if i'll ever pick my self-esteem
up off the dirty floor

i wonder if you'll ever settle down, and i wonder if it'll be with me.
whisper whisper, run with me
step lightly and speak with courage
hell is a comfortable place, but i don't want to be here

temper temper, don't touch me
think less and follow more
i am seventeen years of age,
and nothing seems worth my time;
except you-

so quiet quiet, softly now,
unclench my hands,
hold my face in your fingertips
and never let me down.
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
Bookplates
[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.
