Spectrum~*~Spectrum by Tilkie
Vermillion ways to look at you,
Between each purest book-end hue
Of a spectrum rich with ways to see,
Yet none of them enough for me;
Shall I take the sanguine red
That pounds its flux within your head?
Or perhaps bright days of tangerine,
That burn you with a gentler sheen?
What of those hornet-coloured times
When thunder smirks behind your eyes?
Or days less lemon, and more lime
That seep out from your jungle mind?
Of course there’s that mist-speckled sage
For a wisdom that surpasses age;
And we dance on jaded verdigris
For those days when you’re as old as me;
Turquoise when your celestial heart,
Soaring, spears the skies apart;
Lapis, when your mind falls deep,
And succumbs to cobalt sighs like sleep;
And for every boysenberry night,
When Dionysus spins the world to light,
Your burgundy is brought from rest,
To smoulder, quiet, in your chest;
And each day guides me closer to
Vermillion new ways to look at you

Quaverlight / Butterfly Winter~*~Quaverlight / Butterfly Winter by Tilkie
A heartbeat so strong it makes me shiver,
then nothing at all, like a butterfly blizzard
My smoke tears billow out, as heavy as my mind
when the rain spits me out and drowns me to dry
Feeling light as a javelin, pine-needle spear,
Transparent, chameleon, never quite clear
One heartbeat so sick it makes me shiver
I thrive like a butterfly in winter
A rapturous smile with smoke in my eyes,
Quaverlight, I say,
Burn me blind

Broken Fish Tank Heart~*~Broken Fish Tank Heart by Tilkie
I’m only a mountain
I’m only a symbol of strength, due, doomed for avalanche
I’m only an avalanche
I’m only boulders like held breaths and pebbles that glare like beetles
I’m only beetles
I’m only a seething, scuttling swarm that can’t hold together
I’m only together
Because I’m only the girl with the broken fish tank heart, shards of glass and dead things I don’t understand in my lap
The water swirls along the ground and I shake and I sob like a tumbling boulder, terrified that someone might

I DO NOT ASK FOR POINTS AND I DON'T WANT ANYONE TO FEEL OBLIGATED TO DONATE ANY. That said, if you'd like to donate points I'm not going to discourage you.
Feel free to donate points:
--> Just because you're feeling generous
--> As a sign of appreciation for my work -- even if it's not very good, each piece was born of my blood, sweat, and tears. And usually Autodesk Sketchbook or some pixel art programme.
--> Because you're in the Christmas spirit (even if it's nowhere near Christmas and / or you don't celebrate Christmas anyway)
--> To help me donate to various causes I might find (usually I reserve my donations for Deviants in need / newer Deviants / occasionally photography-related donation pools)
--> To build up good Karma
--> Because you have a spare point or two you don't have anything better to do with
--> To help me get items off my Wishlist and into my room
I'm like a burrito: you'll never know for sure what's on the inside until you bite into me.
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE, TILKIE?: Currently I'm working on developing a text-based adventure game (featuring cute characters!) I coded a prologue for several months ago for my computer programming class.
SEND ME A NOTE IF YOU WANT TO BE A BETA TESTER. (Please please please want to be a beta tester). Note that in order to do this you must have some device that is able to run Python programmes.
All art projects (photography, digital art, poetry) not explicitly related to the game are officially on hold until the programme is complete, but I may violate that 'hold' if inspiration strikes.
--> Most important person ever: tolkie-n.deviantart.com
--> I do REQUESTS and COLLABS (any medium, including literature). I do not do commissions because I don't think people should have to pay for my work (unless you're buying a print). If you feel you *must* commission me for something, pay me in llama. Please send me a note if you're interested in anything ^_^
--> LLAMA-4-LLAMA, YO: as of 30 January 2016, I'm an official llama whore. I've always loved the cute lil dA livestock and had accumulated quite the collection without ever asking for them or anything, but now I've decided to go hardcore. If you find anything about me or my work worthy of a llama, I'd love to get one from you; I'll ensure you've gotten one back from me as promptly as possible.
