- die.
He strained against the current.
The chilling tide seared his eyes.
A flood of kits underfoot,
they pushed and drove him astern.
He sensed the warmth rising;
the heat of the sun or of fire.
He fell into the biting winds,
borne back toward the flames.
The others scurried in terror
from embers that blistered and scarred.
Because the cold had numbed his sight,
he saw that in life he had survived.
And in death he must...

Her wings grew but were never earned.
They sprouted into existence
like whales leaping from the water's surface
lost against the backdrop of endless sea.
Their purpose was lost upon her.
Wings that could not lift her up;
that could not bring her high enough
to fall to the dust and suffer.
She stayed close to the soil,
her body and soul attached to the earth
like a lion bathing in skylight,
but never leaving the ground.
Her eyes would wonder beyond her life
and glimpse sparrows dancing above.
They would carry the colors of galaxies
and sing the songs of the cosmos.
Although they could not teach her to fly
or to hum the aria of nirvana,
when they grew weak and fell from the heavens
she would catch and mend their broken wings.
The sparrows would never touch the ground
and she would never sail with them.
But with her love they would always climb again
and she would never be alone.

I hear her weeping in the dark.
Her voice is a shrill note.
It dances and wavers.
A sound of wings beating against absent wind bellows...
and our souls grow heavy.  
Planets surge and pirouette around her.
Following the path of her dark ascent.
The earth dims beneath her shade.
Towers of humanity morph and glow...
burning like prayer candles.
Vigilant and unbound she braces
against the cosmos that encroach.
Her forlorn cry travels with light.
It bears torment and instills descent.
She laments our fallacy as angels abandon...
and we are alone.

The Schism
The darkness divides and takes shape.
Its heart beats pulsations of light.
Obscurity forms and rends reality asunder.
It hammers the surface like rogue waves
cleaving air and thought.
She invades the world like a visage of water
dripping against a clear surface.
A torrent of impurity ripples to life.
Lightlessness ascends with her.
Its arms outstretched and strong;
- her song mirrors creation and she spoke,
"I am conjured."

A formal journal post of a writer seeking an artist.

I have wanted to do this for many years and now that I've gotten a job with a hefty salary, I can actually afford to.

I am a writer. And although I often joke about procrastinating - I actually write often. Something I've always wanted to tackle is a GRAPHIC NOVEL PROJECT. Unfortunately, I have never been much of an artist. Hence, I'm here to hire one. :nuu:

I know the going rates and that no one can be expected to draw for free. I am willing to pay per page and am especially easy to work with. I'm looking for someone who not only has a style that fits the mood of my novel, but someone that will become as excited about the project as me. Someone who loves the same genres and concepts I do. I want it to be their novel as much as mine.

To apply please send me a note or comment here with the following information:

Your first name:
Your age:
Favorite novels, graphic novels, games, and/or movies: (So I can see if we have the same tastes. :iconteheplz:)
Suggested pay rate for each page:
5-10 Samples of your work. (Doesn't have to be pages. Can be anything.)

Even if I'm not interested, I'll still reply. I hate the feeling of waiting around for an answer (something I recently experienced before I just got hired at my new job). :tears: I won't do that to you. I'll let you know if I decided on someone else.

Payment will be through paypal and depending on your work rate and how much you charge we'll see if we can set up a regular payment. I look forward to hearing from you! :heart:


I'm interested in giving 1,500 :points:, $15 through paypal, or a 3 Month Core Membership to anyone who makes me a personal icon that only I can use. Message me here or through note if you're interested. :huggle:

Keep idling.

:heart: TheIdleWriter
