I think about you all the time
As I'm sitting on the porch wrapped in your
Old faux leather coat
The snow continues fall and the lights
Begin to fade
It's getting darker, still
And you're steadily growing farther, still

I know you're too far away to listen
To me beg anymore
It's twelve AM in Chicago, and I guess
That's where you belong
It's time to eat lunch here but my stomach
Is deeply rooted in my brain
It's hungry for the thought of you
Coming back over to stay

Writing letters on loose leaf paper,
Washing the pencil stains from my hands
Sending out the post cards, and
Trying to wrap my head around this
Why aren't you here?
This is going to be the first year I'm alone
Watching the snow fall by myself
This is going to be the first year I'm alone
Lighting the fireplace by myself

You and this burning chest are the reason it
Hurts to breathe
You and this burning chest are the reason it
Hurts to breathe
You and this burning chest are the reason it
Hurts to breathe

Are you glad you aren't with me…?
These poems are carved on the lines in his face
The crevice of weakening skin beneath his eyes tell the stories
Of yesterday, when he stood up late at night
Building a piece straight from the heart
The sawdust and splinters embedded in his skin speak of the wood
That passed through his hands

He's weary and weak but he'll be happy once the project is complete
He'll get to look up at her and say,
“Margaret, this is for you, I made it from love, from sweat, tears
And pain
I cut through the bellies of trees through the sunshine and rain.”

“Sleeping in Heaven, I know in your dreams you're watching
Margaret, this is for you
Sleeping in the seams of the clouds, I know through the mist
Your eyes are always watching
Margaret, this is for you
And for us, when I've finally withered away too.”

He took the taxi at night, drove straight through the city
Took a sharp curve off the end of the road
Taxi man had been drinking, so God had been told
But the man had to make it to the store,
To buy flowers for his late wife

He's beaten and bruised, but he'll be happy once he's back
On his feet
He'll look up through the shattered glass and say,
“Thank, God, I get to live another day for you.
I've endured this with the power of love and faith in my bones
I'm fragile and old, but for you I am strong.”

“Sleeping in Heaven, I know in your dreams you're watching
Margaret, this is for you
Sleeping in the seams of the clouds, I know through the mist
Your eyes are always watching
Margaret, this is for you
And for us, when I've finally withered away too.”

Death is coming...I saw the corners of his eyes
Bleeding through the curtains
Across the room at last night
He held his scythe high above his head
Wrestled my soul to the ground
But I pushed him away,
And said, “Not today. For my Margaret, not today.”
Exhaled the cancer from my lungs,
And watched as Death breathed it in
He stumbled backwards,
And fell into the hearth
Oooh, that dark hooded man feel straight into the hearth
Oooh, Margaret, he fell straight into that hearth!
And I laughed as his clothes began to burn

“Sleeping in Heaven, I know in your dreams you're watching
Margaret, this is for you
Sleeping in the seams of the clouds, I know through the mist
Your eyes are always watching
Margaret, this is for you
And for us, when I've finally withered away too.”

“Sleeping in Heaven, I know in your dreams you're watching
Margaret, this is for you
Sleeping in the seams of the clouds, I know through the mist
Your eyes are always watching
Margaret, this is for you
And for us, when I've finally withered away too.”

I will continue to breathe
Until I've completed my rounds
I will continue to breathe
Until I've completed my rounds
I will continue to breathe for you

“Sleeping in Heaven, I know in your dreams you're watching
Margaret, this is for you
Sleeping in the seams of the clouds, I know through the mist
Your eyes are always watching
Margaret, this is for you
And for us, when I've finally withered away too.”

“I've built this shrine, with the flowers you love
And the tree that we grew
especially for you.”
    Back when I had a Deviant account (I was known as spooky1014u) I followed a lot of talent artists. One, however, stood out to me the most. I remember telling him how much I wanted to be a comic book artist, and his exact words were, 'Why wait? You can start now!' Because of that, I continued to draw and I gradually became better and better. I even developed my own style. I have that person to thank for why I have continued to perfect my craft, and even though my aspirations have changed (I'm going to be a tattoo artist), I would have never gotten as far as I have had it not been for his words. 

    I don't remember who this person is, but in hopes of them possibly seeing this, I'd like to say, "Thank you. Thank you very, very much. I may not ever discover your art again, but you've helped me a lot."

    Until I do find this artist again, I'm going to be an active member of Deviantart once again and get back into spreading my art with the world. I'm 17 years old now, have a job, and am starting to realize who I am as a person. If any of you may remember who I was when I was a 15 year old deviant, I am a completely different person. (And thank God for that! I was cringe-worthy!) I still have my goofy moments here and there, but I'm not as, how can I put this...erratic.  

    Hahaha, anyway....I'm back! I love you all, and I hope to come in contact with my old watchers again! <3 Oh, and one more thing: You guys can follow me on Wattpad ---www.wattpad.com/user/SkramzGir…
