First off, these eyes are absolutely amazing! I had to literally tell myself to stop staring solely at them, as so I could examine the ...

Waiting Place on sheet music by agnes-cecile

I really like this piece, but do somewhat have an issue with your choice to keep using music sheets. I would really love this piece if ...




                   Simply a dream
                    brain processing
                   and defragmenting

                   but it's surreal
                      how I feel
                 When I deal with you
                in a subconscious frame

                 it's almost concealed
            but it's density is less than me
            and frankly it floats to the top
              above me, yet I can't stop
                but it's not the same
                  it starts to drain
                   my entire reserve
                and starts causing pain...

                        So I ask,
                    what you deserve
                       and, sadly,
                  see an absence of me
                   preserving a sanity
                   that's lasting, see
                   dancing in thoughts
                   yet for some reason
                  you've told me things

                      whether it be
                    inside of a dream
                    a couple of weeks
                    before you do mean
                   all of these things
                    that you do think
                   float to the surface
                     leaving me weak

                you told me in a bold way
            that it's over and your not lonely
                   for the void placed
                   inside of your heart
                     can be replaced
                  when you hit restart
                and start accepting a life
                       that's phony

                     yet, comparison
                    leaves you timid
                      and roaming
                       and boiling

                     See last night
                     within a dream
                     you spoke to me

                 but I can't say things
               necessarily went pleasantly
            you told me you were ready to flee
               moving on towards the goal
                   of being complete

                   but for some reason
                     your completion
                    began to deplete
                  upon the realization
                  that your deceiving
                      without help
                  stressing about past
                     feelings felt
                   with out a doubt
                    thrashing about
                      in a vast sea
                     of indifference
                 as you feel your needs
                   beginning to melt
                     no consistency
                     in sight to see

                   See in a past night
                        in a time
                  of complete solitude
               I had the absolute pleasure
                of getting to talk to you

                 you told me unrelenting
                   in a voice so stern
                that It wasn't me that you
                     were getting at
                       even though
                      we were both
                       betting that
                        It was I
                       you yearned

                      but who cares
                     about the facts
                      in a culture
                      so completely
                       out of whack
                      see I'd rather
                     rewind the track
             just to disappear within the past

                   but see the odd thing
                    even though I know
                      your dodging
                     my every calling
                  I understand more than
                      you ever can
                      why I will be
                     forever falling...
Black Beauty by 69ShadesOfGray

My entry for the August contest of 'endangered species' held by :iconsharpenededge:

The black rhinoceros or hook-lipped rhinoceros (Diceros Bicornis) is a species of rhinoceros, native to eastern and southern Africa. Although the rhinoceros is referred to as black, its colors vary from brown to grey.

The species overall is classified as critically endangered, and three subspecies, one including the western black rhinoceros, were declared extinct by the IUCN back in 2011.

Between four and five million years ago, the black rhinoceros diverged from the white rhinoceros.

An adult black rhinoceros stands 55–71 inches high at the shoulder and is 9.8–12.3 feet in length. An adult typically weighs from 1,800 to 3,100 lb, however unusually large male specimens have been reported at up to 4,848–6,385 lb.

The longest known black rhinoceros horn measured nearly 4.9 feet in length & Sometimes, a third, smaller horn may develop.



69ShadesOfGray's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I imagine, design, create, & then digitalize artwork in an attempt to capture the beautiful female form, from my own personal perspective, through the use of an assemblage of mediums & methods.

I specialize in erotic black & white pieces, hence the name '69 Shades Of Gray', but have recently starting producing a multitude of different styles of artwork utilizing various spectrums of color.

In addition to my artwork, I also produce my own musical works under the name
'Children of Themis' which can be heard exclusively on SoundCloud. If you want to check them out as well, I provided two links below. Enjoy!……
