Euphoria by kimsol Euphoria by kimsol
Inspiration...

Pyromania by :iconanatopist:

I want to see a light show in ochre and dancers
two thousand degrees in heat: I want to watch them
all traipse across my bedroom floor with their
encore in grey.

Blistered fingers flicking cigarette lighters
to see an orange pirouette turn for me,
my parents worry that I smell of smoke but
they don't know the reality.

Well.

The truth is that you can find me weaving
kerosene trails around the moon and Saturn's rings,
telling acorns and oak leaves to enjoy
our favourite disease -

So I flick the lighter once again and speak
to the blackened walls and singed floors:
'don't fear the kiss of the flame,
don't let them douse the burns you reap,
just don't stop dancing, don't stop dancing
for me.'


For the Fun Fun Fun Challenge at :iconmanip-contest:

I very much enjoyed doing this, trying to give meaning and fantasy to what drives a pyromaniac when starting a fire, thus endusing euphoria...

Stock thanks here :heart:

I think it's really nice, but being me, I just have to offer some critique. It's nothing personal, love, I just like to offer advice. If you don't want my advice and are abject to critique, then stop reading here. Okay, first, thank you for accepting my critique. :D Second, there is only one thing I want to say, and that is the hair. Don't get me wrong, it's great hair, but you have to think about motion. The model is spinning clockwise. Her dress and the flames are twirling with her, but the left side of her hair doesn't seem to be. It looks like it's going forward instead of curving to the right. Do you see it? Okay, love, that's all. Lovely piece!
