futile pleading

3

My series of paintings done for the Doctor Who comics series! (Well, the first three, at least… wink wink.) They are the covers of the #1 issues for each respective Doctor - Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth. It’s the first time I’ve released the artwork without the titles and whatnot - this was a MAJOR project for me this year, started all the way back in 2013 - I’m proud and honored to be so deeply involved with an official project like this. Here’s to more covers and Doctor Who in the future!

Seeking Out Hypnos - a poem by ananalyticalsponge

All those years blaming my brain
Has loyally not been in vain
But I forgot to mention
The constant tension
With my internal clock and the 6:30 am Math session
I’m forced into without any say
A member of society without any pay
Be grateful I’m too young to sue
When your response to lack of teenage sleep is “Boo hoo”
Our melatonin levels reach an all time high
Every night so we can reach a new low
When the system howls in my face
With scrutinizing alarm sirens
And a parent’s “You’re lazy”
To which I plead in futility, “Get the fuck out of my personal space”
Combined with fatigue that stems from depression
And insomnia from pesky anxiety
And a 24/7 lack of privacy
How scientifically ignorant is this race
That relies on prescriptions to hide the symptoms
And cover up the unintended side effects
Of treating us like kids
But asking what college will take us
After we slave over a high dose of homework
Which takes the wondrous relief out of learning
Widespread theism aside, these apathetic fools are subconsciously godless
“A detention for basically adjusting to a different time zone every day, for four years plus”
I hate dying slowly
And moreso alone
I can’t stay up at school
And I’ll never find peace in my bed at home
