Some days I find myself staggering from this hovel;
To stand with shaking legs upon the window ledge.
I look down at the tiny world below, wind rushing before me;
And I wonder if I'll be able to fly tonight...

The caress of the wind, so gentle upon my skin.
One step, one leap and I'd dip myself into the eye of the storm.

But just before my courage sends me;
Just before I take the final plunge.
I find myself looking back, at the world I'd leave behind...

Stacks of paper and a pot of ink,
Reams of stories too precious to burn.
Ideas and fears both rolled into one;
And pages of poetry left undone...

It always leaves me smiling...

For these were the treasures so close to my heart.
They are the wealth of my mind; my soul, my art.

And I could never ever leave them be,
Where another might burn them, without thinking of me...

"Apologies father, I cannot join you yet:
For in this world, a treasure still exists.
A treasure that was made, just for me..."

Maties,

T'night we have a commission by :icontngapch: - She's an incredible artist who's been around for about 4 years and really you should check her out if you haven't already.

The subject commissioned was about treasure and how one man's treasure is another's trash. I wanted to take that idea a step beyond and include an entire story behind it, because I felt there was more to the idea emotionally and I hope this piece satisfies.

If you too would like yer own poem or flash fiction commissioned. Check out my journal! There are plenty of special offers on at this time :3

:iconpointcommissionsask: - The orders are waiting :3
