Yes, I think it's yellow by murdokdracul
Yes, I think it's yellow
There are some words that come into your head and out through your fingers that don't seem to make much sense the first time you write them.

How long to go before my bones are broken,
when they go so dry and crack and snap
and black and splinter,
Wendigo?

How long before my skin is red
and dry and hair is burnt and throat
and lungs are smoking,
Wendigo?

When the flames lick
my waning body, Wendigo,
my strands of braided hair braided cotton wicks atop
my waxen body, Wendigo,
the cross-hatches of wood beneath my feet,
the splintered cross-hatched branches blacken,
black as frostbite, Wendigo.
Candlesticks.

How long to go before I see your happy face,
your wide grin wide eyes pink skin hare lip buck tooth,
and your white ears,
Wendigo?

How long before I build a flame a fire for the night
before the stars come out and your children
before the blaze begins the scorching
drum and drum and drum and
Wendigo?

And drum and drum before my bones are broken
when dancing dreams and cotton dreams
can meet upon the hilltop
Wendigo?

When the dancers kick
the dust into the night, Wendigo,
their sweat each other’s sweat and tears of mine
inside the eyes of sunlight monsters
kick and scream the thought’s too much
for them, Wendigo, but they don’t stop -
your children drum and drum and drum
and kick the dust into the stars
and bite the fire in your black eyes,
black as coal, Wendigo.
Light my eyes.

eh

I kind of just went completely insane in this one.

You can tell by the look on her face

that she ain’t no member of the human race;

by the look on her face

she don’t belong in this place;

by the look on her face

she’s a stardust mad elf witch from space and she’s got no space.


She says:


“It’s all right.

Take a look at these alien skies.

It’s a clear enough view. You can breathe here, too,

and you’ll be all right.


It’s a new moon,

and I think you’ll be glad of it soon,

‘cause the Earth can’t stand forever, man,

like you and I can.”


She stands at the very tip,

rainbow dress fluttering in the salt breeze,

her moth-like wings unfold before the sea,

and she shouts, “This is just the tip!”


You can tell by the break in my brain

that I ain’t no victim of a phantom pain;

by the break in my brain,

the world outside’s in a much worse state than I;

by the break in my brain

I’m a dragon-shaped shadow in a realist’s face and I’ve got no space.


I think:


It’s all right.

Take a look at Izgarvian skies.

It’s a clear enough view. You can dream here, too,

and you’ll be all right.


It’s a new moon,

and I think you’ll be glad of it soon,

‘cause your legs can’t stand forever, man,

like your consciousness can.


I put the pen down.

My tired eyes wearily retrace the black lines

of ink across the page. And then I pick the pen up again

and whisper to myself: “All right.”


All Right (Izgarvian Skies)
One of a set of poems based around the phrase 'All Right'. 

'Izgarvian' refers to the archipelago on which my fantasy stories take place. Look at my gallery for more on that.

Jacob Graham
Artist | Student | Literature
United Kingdom
Jacob Martin Peter Graham, born 11 June 1994.

I'm at the University of Salford studying English and Creative Writing.
I'm also in the midst of planning numerous fantasy stories, and writing my first, the title of which is "Book of Earth: The Ancient Heroes of Izgarv", or "Heroes of the Stars".

Collectively, the stories are called "The Elements of Izgarv".

Above is a labelled map of the archipelago on which the main stories take place, the Isles of Izgarv.

Since drawing is a huge hobby of mine, some sketches of the characters in my stories have been uploaded into my gallery. They can all be found in my folders.

I hope you like my writing and illustrations.
