The heart, is an origami fold.
Emotions spooling miles of thread
Dangle me from:
                        The apex of a leaf [with a thousand veins to spare]
                        Half a moon          [still flooding oceans not with tungsten spots]
                        Window panes      [broken of its glass holding together dirty fingerprints]
           &
                        strips of sky          [cold but easy on my lips]

I split.
Becoming twins:
One to take my pulse!
Roots coagulate,
Thickening my plot.
As the earth clots,
                         Dig..
A mole(cule) that makes mountains.

21 years a single leaf fell making me
a fool covered in foliage.
I’ve fallen from
                     Trees
                            Grace
                                    Clouds
                                           &  High wooden beds
                                           as my hair fell from my                                   
                                                                           scalp
                                                              

El divine complex has ripped
Off my heavy wings
like a used car sale..
         Entering
                   The
                      Troposphere
I became slightly bored..
                      Then solid ground!
                    My heart beats 3 times louder
                  Than any fell tree in a wood

(With no one around)

This is how..
..The heart, folds.
ah.
poem and a drawing.
experimental.

Very beautiful. I wish I dared be so experimental. Often when I have read other poems that purport to be experimental they just seem to be going through the motions strange line breaks, brackets everywhere, but yours have a purpose and add to the meaning and mood of the poem.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. feature :winner:! congrats! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure (and ALSO, to show off people who I think are undeniably talented in their own genre of art, REGARDLESS of their #'s of fav's or pageviews. I like what I like and sometimes artwork isn't featured in the regular DDs because it's popular all on it's own It's a shame, but the admins are only trying to be fair! ). Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! xoxo Stef xoxo :w00t!:

I enjoyed the relationship between the phrases inside/outside [these]. I think it reinforces your "twin" idea here of one taking the other's pulse. Great work.

Hey are you kidding me? I've read your descriptions on your work, you do have a way with words - it's just about expressing them and letting them flow. And see what happens when you do? My only suggestion is to open word and let them pour, if it sucks it sucks but occasionally you happen across something grand - like this, :P

The typographical breaks of some of those earily lines and suggesting the vertical readings as well as the horizontal was right on target. The word manglement was pretty slick too, "mole(cule)" and "El divine complex"

You need to write more poetry, my friend!! I love typographical, been playing with it a bit myself, not posting too much of it on DA, it's hard to be confident with this style....but yours rocks!!

Well done, I am impressed. A definite fav.

Whoa,
This is a very good piece of writing you have here,
It's good to see that your doing some writing,
This is one of those works that I had to read a few times to really savor,
The imagery,
The structure of the words,
The accompaning drawing,
They all really come together very well to make this piece what it is,
