Black Sheep

Black Sheep

I saw your face through a teary window
Said you couldn’t sleep
That you fought the day
And lost in the rain
Talk talk talk to me
Hey what’s the matter
You were born in the space between
A black sheep
Awake and cursing the chatter
That sound you’ve learned to drown
Sometimes and again
Still you told me you could hold together
Its easy to see, because you know
And it makes you laugh
Never wanna mind your manners
Dancing in everything you handed her
All cattails swirls and sweet sassafras
Pushed up against guard rail ghosts
They only let you pass once
Clever boy you better jump on in
Because that shape won’t hold its place long
It’ll hold you to it, and lose itself
And depend now on you to belong

About the artist:

Natalie’s primary goal as an artist is to evoke feeling through her words and photographs. Her artistic journey began long ago but it wasn’t until she entered her 30s that photography and writing became the primary outlet for her artistic expression. She likes to share the way she sees the world with those who are interested in her perspective. She is inspired by light, shadows, contrast, shapes, lines, colors, words, nature, adventure, music, and of course, the people, and animals she loves! She has recently been experimenting with self-portraiture and finding additional outlets for her art. While experimenting in different directions and following her passions as they arise, she is laying the groundwork for the future paths of her artistic journey. Her work has been published by Lensbaby, Beyond the Wanderlust, and she is an artist at Offset.com.
