Annika Darling

I am a melancholy creature with a Cheshire grin I Love Prussian and vermillion and ink on my fingers I always kiss my paintings so they know I loved them first And I apologize for making them that way unless they are happy Then I am envious I Love being dressed up to the nines but and happier sitting In paint covered clothes I am in Love with red lipstick because it leaves marks when I give kisses Somewhere over the rainbow is my favorite song I love to look at clouds And I am a creature of facts I think magic is a fact under the right sky I am hopelessly in love with love stories I am fond of peppermint tea and raspberries on my fingers I am addicted to stripes I love to write poems and stories full of half lies and half truths I have a million secrets I skip when I walk when no one is looking I am plagued by nightmares But still think I am pretty lucky So I never pick up lucky pennies I only drop them I love books and finding that perfect line that makes me feel alive I put little folded notes in books at bookstores to maybe make someone’s day brighter I am short but have a ten foot high temper I think falling in Love can change the world I love the scent of paint and the people I love I love to bite my nails And I love weeping willow trees And the sound of rain hitting the rooftop Especially at night I dance foolishly whenever I get the chance And I have music on all the time There are some songs I could not live without I love record static in the background of a good song And when someone takes a breath from an instrument Since I was young strangers have told me their secrets I am a closet religious freak, thought it would have been a good nun That is until... My hair is out of control as my thoughts most days I am too sarcastic and full of dark humour I dream far too big Things are not always easy, but I still believe anything is possible I have a million things still left to learn And I know who I am from my mad head to my painted toes Fortunately I cannot change any of this
