For anyone not familiar with this piece already, this was a collaborative piece I did with a fellow DA friend and poet. She wrote the poem that is written in the back ground of the piece. The copy I post here on DA does not allow for the poem to be read; so I have included it here. Please check out other amazing poetry written by MissDeets [link]

“Walking Past”
Poem by deviant MissDeets

and I'm
wearing my heart on my sleeve
dragging it behind me
past is my enemy
tripping over roots of trees
I planted - not thinking
then of now but
now then is it for my eyes

I'm coughing up the blood of the words
I've held in for years past what i can count
dancing round and round on impromptu holy ground

bet they never saw this coming
and now I'm walking

walking right on past.
