nineteen. by magnesart nineteen. by magnesart
today, i am nineteen.

only a decade ago i was still a girl-child, running barefoot across valleys of scorching asphalt. in the evening i would pick at the blisters that had formed on the soles of my feet, hoping they would turn leathery and impervious to pain. indian feet, my grandfather called them. me, invincible, scurrying up trees and relishing the sensation of rough bark against the palm of my hand. i brandished my bruises and scrapes proudly, like battle scars. the agglomeration of elbow and knee band-aids were testimony to my prowess in bicycle racing and tree climbing.

naturally, when the weather was dark and damp and i was rendered listless, i would imagine what i would look like in ten years' time. i would have beautiful long, dark hair. and highly-polished, red fingernails. and more pokémon cards than anyone else in the neighborhood. such notions were driven by an unutterably sweet naďveté, for i completely failed to understand the concept of gradual aging. in my mind, i would one day wake up and be shaped like an adult. fully-fledged, both mentally and physically.

it is something i still wish for.

Listen, people seem to throw around compliments on dA as if it's candy. Not that it's a bad thing, but sometimes compliments end up sounding hollow.
But believe me, this is the most beautiful woman I had ever laid my eyes on. Her beauty silences me. Her lips are perfectly formed, I've only seen one other pair of lips like those. Her cheekbones are risen to the perfect height. Her nose is narrow, slim. Feminine in the most positive sense. Even her eyebrows are gorgeous. I only wish her eyes were open so I could gaze into them.

I don't mean to sound so generic or cheesy. This was the best way I could describe this.
