Inspired by this new supernatural series “Grimm”.
I am very sure I want to sketch or paint again. I really do. My sketch pad is neatly tucked on my desk, left hand corner together with a case filled with every HB pencil needed for a basic sketch with the proper eraser. Somehow, the moment I reach out for them, I get all hazy inside. My mind starts muddled with ALL suggestions possible; naked people (again?), portrait(of whom?), practice sketch (haven’t I done that already?) or landscape ?(bleh, not really).
So, I go and dig up for my old sketches, the ones I had scanned and posted in my now defunct malayangsining blog. I was able to find a few saved ones, the ones I don’t particularly like.
I suppose I could take a photograph of the ones I haven’t digitally scanned then post it. Maybe I’d feel better then. I sometimes feel like they’ve turned themselves into an excess baggage, the drawings I mean.
I’m sure it is no longer necessary to inform anyone at all about how this poem came to life. Surely you’d guess that it’s because of a dead relationship that somehow resurfaced a few weeks back. I sound so bitter and angry and I just realized that AFTER posting it at my Facebook page. What was I thinking? A lot of things. So far, that brief shallow me, (in retrospect) has become a comic relief. Like, Stewie’s Bryan Adams song in response to Bryan’s insults to his (Stewie’s) serenading.
