!!So we've passed the one year mark!!Exactly a year ago, on September 12th, I created my 'cherrypikkins' account on dA and made my debut with the first ever chapter of the Just Be series. Over 100 deviations, 1000 watches and 100000 page views later, look how far we've come. @_@ I swear, it feels like only yesterday since this account's humble beginnings, and I can't believe how fast the time flies! But I'm really glad I managed to stick around this long. It's been a blast from day one, I swear. X3

it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
