ink fest

the sun is too bright for me.
the daytime leaves me feeling
fragile and exposed, a
heat-damaged vase about
to crack.

you’ve heard it before,
surely, how we find solace
in the night, how the dark
wraps us up and promises
to keep us safe for just
a few hours.

and the stars - oh,
how can i describe it?
like a gentle fire burning
in my heart. like
a million blinking promises
that it’ll all be okay.

it’s like, oh, it’s as though
they’re telling me that
everything’s so big and loud
down here but there’s
so much more up there. like,
we have so much quiet
to offer here. we’ll be waiting.

Where can I buy your prints if i'm based here in the Philippines and doesn't have a credit card? Do you attend conventions like Komikon, INK fest?

I’d love to go to cons but I never know when these things happen asgshd -_-“ plus, correct me if I’m wrong, I believe most cons here are v anime/comics centric? I don’t think I fall under that spectrum lol 😅

I am going to Icon Manila tho, that’s for sure!

As for the prints, you can email me at paulinejdb @ gmail ^__^
