What can I say? I've been away for a long time. But I have not stopped writing poetry. Rather, I've been trying to live out my poetry in real life.
The changes in my absence have been extraordinary... There are now skins for journal entries, twitter icons for deviations...
But really, things have changed. The last summer I was writing here was spent slaving away in New York, interning in the fashion industry and dreaming of a day when I could breathe more easily. Now I've left the fashion industry forever, left the art school of my old dreams, and am diving full-force into a new digitally-driven revolution.
The other day, I slowed down for a moment, and asked myself:
What would my life have looked like without the Internet?
And I remembered this place.
Without this community, the amazing support of all of you, the countless comments and favorites, the DD's, and most poignantly- a single gallery by onthemetro
that changed my 14-year-old life forever... I would never have been a poet.
Not like this.
And so I thank you. I posted a last poem, today, dedicated to you.
