Falling and Growing by AlyssaStehle
Falling and Growing
This drawing became a bit more crazy than I had imagined.  I was deeply inspired by my two Galladra prints hanging in my bedroom.  The prints feature plants and butterflies on woodgrain.  I wanted to draw something like that very badly.  

I also wanted to draw my character in daring bell bottoms~  I love drawing this girl in tomboyish clothes.  
The concrete streets resemble broken ice
Washed and preserved in late winter salts
Cracks spread like spider webs
Skeletal hands stretched palms down
Scars that deepen but never fade

The streets are weeping silently
Beneath January’s magenta sunset
With tears of melted snow and ice
It’s dreary and sad but a little bit warm
They’re tears of joy after all

Cleansing rains will purify the streets
All through the night
Snow will be washed from our memories
I stir in the midst of something spectacular
The first dreams of spring

I swear by the crimson sunrise
And the crumbling streets  
That I will become fearless in the dawn of a new era
The scars we share will be worn like medals
Never hide them, we are forever victorious
It was as if the moon was right outside my window
Glowing pleasantly upon layers of snow
Rising slowly almost without realization
Of how high it should go

The ghostly pale moon and its heavenly aura
Engulfed the entire word and its shadows
Eating away at the core of unthinkable darkness
Though my stomach still churns with broken glass

It can’t be helped
Distorted emotions bleed though my heart like acid
Ripping through everything you’ve built in me
I beg for mercy from the moon resting in the yard

Quietly all the droplets of water hanging delicately in the air
Begin to blur my already impaired vision
The moon’s rays are reaching blindly through the haze
Trying desperately to grab onto something

Ashen hands pressed against the frozen window
Longing for something warm to touch
As the silvery landscape shivers silently  
I slip away into the warmest dreams of you
With my dazed dreamy eyes
I saw only one thing
Through the blue winter blur
There was a window of gold
Hanging against an unfitting background

I wonder what magic is done in that room
Across the snow laden street
No one can say
Enveloped in sleepy thoughts
And the warmest blankets
I wonder

It’s the window to a golden season
Not so far away
Across the green fields of budding life
And pink tulips swaying on the breeze
There’s a warmer destination beyond the rain

I’m swallowed by the half remembered memories
And the careless laughter that lit up the sun
Flooding my dreams once again
If only I could go back to that time
When every thing was right
If only I could open that window

The golden window
Hangs in the icy lavender dawn
Like the twinkling memories
Of my heart’s first awakening
Beneath the blinding shards of show
Lays all the kisses never had
It only took me 6 years.  lol jk I don't do this whole DeviantART thing for the watchers.  It's for the feedback and commentary I get from other artists.  Most non-artists just go "Ooo pretty" at everything.  Which is nice, just not exceptionally meaningful or helpful.  I appreciate all 300 of you guys, truly.  

I think this year for 2015 I want to dip my toes into the pool of animation again.  It's something I was once very passionate about but somehow I haven't animated anything for a long time.  I think even if its something short I'd like to animate again.

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
