Floating.She saw me from across the room
tangled in my web
playing tag with the shadows
unable to touch the ceiling
but suspended from the floor.
I used to see so clearly
beyond the dark and light
and every shade of blue and gray
obscuring every night.
Another day to see,
my sweet Roslyn singing,
dancing the night away
beneath the clouds and stifled stars.
Cold creeps within me
seeping among the pores and raising every hair
until I cannot feel the numbness
consuming every nerve-ending
in every corner of my mind.
Hide me from the sun,
beneath the coattails of the man-child
or behind the pooling soul of
every lost image
that the last artist did dream.
The Mad Girl's Shadow SisterIt seems to pass
every day, more slowly
I feel inside and outside
how many ways Ive been held
The sweet, mad love song
a girl once emptied her soul,
before she became what
she always intended.
Legends are made,
And they are always over-worn.
She whispered softly
from glowing white letters
and I listened with rapture.
Pity comes with a price
but love is never cheap.
I never knew how often I thought I could say it.
And how often I may have heard it
and not felt it
and despite this, I speak these words
falling from my mouth
as they choke on themselves:
I love you.
Our DutyWe swallowed the path home
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.

^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
