A love that is real
I love you because you make me smile.
You make me happy, you listen well.
You are fun and funny, intelligent, insightful.
You're creative and crazy.
Your voice and your laughter,
your smile, eyes, and hair.
I love you because you treat me well.
I love you and I know you love me, too.
For all that you are and all that you do,
I want you to know that I love you.

Perfect, Flawless, You
Unique as you are,
I do not wish to change you.
Perfect, Flawless, You.
:iconjahendrick:jahendrick 1 2
The Cookie Cutter
You had this idea;
a perfect, flawless thought
of who you wanted me to be.
You pushed and shoved,
tugged and yanked, 
but I just didn't fit the bill.
No matter how hard
you tried to force it,
you couldn't make me what I'm not.
I'll never be the perfect person-
I'll never fit your cookie-cutter image.

Love Surprises
I didn't expect to fall for you,
I didn't expect to fall so soon.
I didn't expect to fall so hard,
to fall so very fast.
I never thought you'd catch my fall, 
but you were there, 
you stopped me fast.
I don't know if time just stopped
or if you stopped my heart.
I don't know if I like this feeling,
to feel so strongly for you.
But when I fell, you were there;
you caught me in your arms.
So there I'll stay,
hope for the best;
I hope you fall for me.

It's been FOREVER since I've been on dA. In the time I was absent, I got married and started a new life. I still dabble with all kinds of mediums, but I don't post much anymore. I will try to post some more every now and then

**My work may not be copied, edited, reproduced, published, transmitted or uploaded in any way without my written permission**

I enjoy sketching portraits & profiles, fantasy creatures, both realistic and manga. I like photography (film and digital), and oil pastels, as well as sculpting, mask making, beading, and print making/stamp carving.
I enjoy trying new mediums such as book binding and leather-working, and improving my weak areas (like watercolor and soft pastels).
I like creative writing, both poetry and prose, and may engage you in totally crazy, fun and random, on-the-spot, messaging dialogue just for fun.
Also, check out my sister's dA AuntKa

Laugh, cry, smile, tease;
you have a knack for putting me at ease.
Smart, silly, funny, you;
without you, what would I do?

You always catch me when I fall.
You love me, flaws and all.
You are a perfect piece of art,
and I love you with all my heart.
