i don’t know if it exists;

not like this anyway:

You have killed my sincerity too. I will never know again who I am, what I am, what I love, what I want.

Your beauty has drowned me, the core of me.

You carry away with you a part of me reflected in you.

When your beauty struck me, it dissolved me. Deep down, I am not different from you.

I dreamed you, I wished for your existence.  

I see in you that part of me which is you.

I feel compassion for your childlike pride, for your trembling unsureness, your dramatization of events, your enhancing of the loves given to you.

I surrender my sincerity because if I love you it means we share the same fantasies, the same madnesses.”

~ Anais Nin

Dear God,

I’m trading in my dark chocolate-covered daydreams for a seriously sensual mantra in hopes of manifesting your Godliest, Cosmic Cowboy-ist, kind of Love.

About Michelle Dawson

Michelle Dawson is a prolific Body Artist who hails from the Black Dirt region of Upstate NY. She combines the ancient arts of Henna and Yoga as a means of reaching the sacred poise of Body and Mind. Referring to her craft as Body Art by Michelle, she owns and operates a Yoga studio in Chester, NY. Her self-appointed title is Black Dirt Goddess and her goal is to deliver Art to Asana and return Asana to the Arts. She lives by a mantra from Rainer Marie Rilke: "No Great art has ever been created without the artist having known some real danger." Michelle can be found adorning appendages anywhere from NYC streets to Holy festivities in grandiose temples: she believes that every body was created for the satiation of the Artist. www.bodyartbymichelle.com
