some men are pretty poison the minute you meet them you know it in your bones men with an edge that scrapes every neuron with oxytocin pink flesh twitches your brain takes a back seat to the tinderbox between your legs and you're ready to leave everything you own to follow the one you can't resist to the hinges of hell surrender to that sweet seduction and that's where he'll take you right to those bronze gates that fall like matchsticks in the face of a stiff wind in you'll go nostrils open following the manscent that makes you dizzier than a bitchdog in heat the devil's domain masquerades as paradise and for a measureless moment you'll forget where you are in the bloodred rush of a lust like you've never known and then he's - poof - gone having turned you inside out upside down and left you tied in knots of confusion and now that you're alone in a grim wilderness populated by nothing but misshapen fiends all pointing and laughing at you you smell the brimstone
and now you're scared because when you followed him to that furnace you didn't pay attention to the route oh you'll find your way back to the wreck of your life you'll pick up the pieces and want to slit your wrists because for some strange reason none of them fit together anymore and your skin - it's scorched up and down blackened bruised and branded why do you think i'm wearing long sleeves and jeans in july? go ahead laugh i did too so sure i could be the one to tame the dragon but look - look at my arms look at my legs and imagine the scars on the softer places i won't show you think twice proud sister before you take that pretty poison i promise you won't survive unscathedcopyright 2014 RC deWinter</
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: email@example.com If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
All of my work on Imagekind and elsewhere is protected by copyright. No permission whatsoever to copy, appropriate, claim as one's own or otherwise distribute, display or sell any of my work is granted to any entity or individual.
