Where There's Gray SmokeWhere There's Gray SmokeWhere There's Gray Smoke by Sassycat2
Faint gray smoke falls, fading away into only a taste on the air
Broken, distant, and far from what one longs for
On summer nights, it comes full strength, but in winter bare
The smoke goes, leaving all wanting something more
Faith rebuilt, but destroyed over and over,
Forcing me to fall, but not to cry
Anger grows deep and strong, a hatred is born
For the winter that hides the gray smoke
Black snakes and fat spiders, making me reel in my bare feet
For fear of being bitten, and fear of losing toes
Flat bread, dark coffee, rosy drinks and orange jelly
And a wild path to follow the gray smoke
Grapevines and roses, sungrown cheer that won't die
Strong cedar, bushy lavender and roly-poly red watermelon
Yellow cherry, green apple and orange peach trees
Blotted with color, a garden of gray smoke
A tower of stone, taller than I can ever hope to be
Iron rails, and rocky handholds to risk my neck on
Bare light bulbs in some rooms, crystal chandeliers in others,
HEY EVERYONE: I'm no longer active here. Sometimes I hop on occasionally to comment/critique, but dA has become too toxic for me. See y'all around.|
I'm mainly into cartooning, but painting scenery's good too. And I draw digital stuff when I've got time.
I watch just about everything on Cartoon Network, and try to mimic the styles of the animations I like best. I'm still a student, so don't get ticked if I copy your style too. I'm trying to figure my drawing skill.
I'm Catholic (yes, Christian artists do exist). I'm trilingual (French, Arabic, and you might be able to guess the last one).
I'm stubborn. I like frozen yogurt. I love the taste of artificial strawberry. I'm pescetarian (which means the only meat I eat is fish).
I love horses, and cats and lots of other animals. Writing is frustrating, but I love it anyway.
I'm from Beirut. I like history, art, math and English, but I hate speaking English sometimes. Really constricting language.
Can't shut up, really, even when I want to. I guess the "Sassy" part of my username (which I came up with about eight or seven years ago) really fits me now.
That is pretty much all you need to know about me
