Maiden.

The space between us is slant rhyme,
Burning-in, saturation, and exposure time,
Ink curves he drew from a lead line,
The way his fingers fit in yours,
Instead of mine.


Mother.

You are difficult to hone, granite.
I am prone to severing.
You are a vestige made of stone
That I could never be.


Crone.

Are you what is happening to me?
Rain and gravity have
Weathered the weaker parts
They leave you standing
Strong, a pyramid, a mountain.
I am haunted: a cliff, daunted
By the sea.
"Burning in" is a dark room technique to darken a portion of the picture through exposure to light

That's... all folks?

EDIT

I am shaking. Thank you so much, everyone, for your support. I greatly appreciate your comments, favorites, and any critiques you might have.

I am so thankful for :icongaioumonbatou: for featuring me and :iconbatousaijin: for suggesting me.
I am extraordinarily grateful for Batousaijin's constant support! He has been a incredibly amazing influence on my experience with DA.

Daily Deviation

While the suggester linked me to a different work by ~pretty-yin, I felt that Envy was a strong example of the artist's voice, striking and poignant. ( Suggested by batousaijin and Featured by GaioumonBatou )

The space between us is slant rhyme - that's such a great opening :D I love it.

Thanks. That is the base line for the rest of the work- I had to get those words out of my head, or they would have driven me mad!

Absolutely beautiful. The Wiccan theme is embedded subtly enough that a non-practising individual can draw their themes, but overtly enough that a practising witch can ply it out. Wonderful work, blessed be :wizardhat:

This is absolutely fantastic. I especially love the bit about the mother. I feel like that about my own mother, though I could never have worded it as well as you have.

Thank you :)

I think that a lot of us feel that way about one or both of our parents. I also believe it's especially true for artists, like us.
