Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-05
Nautilus by IrKos is almost visceral in its emotionality. Excellent blending of many well-chosen stock images really make this deviation stand apart from the crowd. ( Featured by Aeirmid )

Reminds me of my beautiful poetry :)  This image in a dark way transcends the mind into the abysmal depths of darkness, but i can also see the same image being full of life with tree beginning to bloom and the sun peeking through...  A truly divine piece!

A excerpt from chapter 2 of my book "From The Throne That Bleeds" that i find a relation in with this image...  I hope you read it and enjoy :)

I slowly approach the bed
Gently grasping her hand
A whirlwind starts spewing
From her once still lips
Sucking me inside
Her darkest dreams
Looking about the riddled mess
I see her standing alone
Trapped on a island
The waves crashing down
Clinging to a dead tree
All broken and twisted
Rooted in the rocks
But then I notice
Two budding leaves
Side by side

I know that I must save you
But no matter how
I try to reach you
The current keeps pulling me
Further and further
Away from you

So I reach deep inside
Calling to my soul
It appears by her
Gently grabbing her hand
She turns to look
But it seems no one is there

I know you can feel me
I know you want to see
Now I know it must be...

Embrace what you feel
Embrace and all will be well

Even if you don't
Then in you I drown
I can't think of a better way
To go down

Focusing on her weary face
Her worn hands
With chipped nails
Clinging ever so tightly
To what had withered
I swim like never before
Finally making it ashore
The clouds started dissipating
The waves began calming
The tree is blooming

Walking towards her
I get pulled to my soul
With my body coming into focus
She unclenches the tree
Staring upon my face
Stepping back startled
Her eyes meet mine
Never noticing
The storm has passed

It has taken me so long
Just to find you
It's been brick wall
After brick wall
Slowing me down
Wave after wave
Washing me away
Trying to reach you

She suddenly reaches out
About to grab my hand
And I get whisked away
Spewing me back out
I reassemble myself
Standing there I look at her still body
Ever so peaceful
My heart starts beating, Rapidly

I see you
Not like they do
I see you
Breaking through

Take my hand
Rise from this wasteland
