♥ papillon ♥

The Butterfly upon the Sky,
That doesn't know its Name
And hasn't any tax to pay
And hasn't any Home
Is just as high as you and I,
And higher, I believe,
So soar away and never sigh
And that's the way to grieve --

Emily Dickinson

♥ us ♥

♥ one of the many journals I've filled with dreams, love poems, letters I never mailed
and feverish descriptions of love making and romantic encounters.

♥ "I would marry you some sunny day"

♥ "our love is the color of roses"

♥ the ruby lipsticks you love so much.

♥ wooden hearts to make mine stronger.

♥ strawberries I'd feed you.

♥ a mermaid charm to wash the sailors ashore.

♥ a weeping magdalene with a vessel filled with heavenly perfumes.

♥ "dreams and scars and letters on the line"

3 things you love about me

the perfumes I would only wear for you
(how your sheets and clothes end up scented with them)

my love for beautiful things like jade teapots,
silk roses and heart-shaped precious stones

my almost criminal use of mascara
(big dramatic eyes that could only cry and cry for you)

("summer time was hard
and I knew it on the spot,
I would marry you
some sunny day,
Baby, I know it's strange
to end up this way,
a mistress on a sunny day")

♥ nymphaea ♥

drawing these nymphs always makes me feel better.
I never know how it happens yet they keep coming to me like magic.
I hope they never leave.

♥ the desperate kingdom of love ♥

Oh love, you were a sickly child
And how the wind knocked you down
Put on your spurs, swagger around
In the desperate kingdom of love

Holy water cannot help you now
Your mysterious eyes cannot help you
Selling your reason will not bring you through
The desperate kingdom of love

There's another who looks from behind your eyes
I learn from you how to hide
From the desperate kingdom of love

At the end of this burning world
You'll stand proud, face upheld
And I'll follow you, into Heaven or Hell
And I'll become, as a girl
In the desperate kingdom of love

♥ Une Femme Est Une Femme ♥

My favorite scene from Une Femme Est Une Femme.

bang bang

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

♥ us ♥

♥ all the spilled tears turned into diamonds.
♥ a drawing of my nymph fever.
♥ pink lipstick just for me because you like it ruby.
♥ a mermaid for you
("if I was a mermaid, you were the sea")
♥ a hello kitty band-aid to heal all the cuts you've made in my heart.
♥ little quartz hearts to remind my own to keep beating.


be still my beating heart.


My dad gave me this little duck finger puppet a very long time ago.
It was sunny and we were in Caracas.

It was the first gift of him I truly loved,
it's still one of the most beautiful things I own.

♥ vamps & virgins ♥

I made two copies of this book.
One for the man I love and one for myself.

All the love in the world was flowing out of my hands
as I was making a copy for him.
