Artist's Description

Original painting, © Derek Shockey. 2008.

5″ × 7″ × 1/2" acrylic on petite stretched canvas.

“… I want to be embraced by you
and see our violent paths collide
I want to crawl in your autumn mouth and
feel the crows pick me apart inside
and everything that they said is true
I’m on a downward spiral towards you
and I’ll fight through the positive steps
as I hurl towards my final descent
cause I need to get back to you
and lay this heavy head in your lap
cause these days nothing makes more sense
than to dance towards the inevitable end
I’M WEARING VIRGINAL WHITE FOR YOU… CAN’T YOU SEE?
so please come with your sharpened knives
and murder me
I’M WEARING VIRGINAL WHITE FOR YOU… DON’T YOU SEE?
and my eyes are more open now
than they’ll ever be…
and I don’t see what everybody
sees in your sexy body
all I see… is a shallow grave
trapped inside a pretty face…”

- KATTNER
