Hi, I'm V. It's not my real name - not even close - but I'm Vigilo here, and I've been other V-beginning pretentious Latin usernames elsewhere on the internet for around six years now, so V works!

If you need anything, or if you just want to talk, feel free to comment / note me! :note:

I haven't replied to you yet because
- I reply at a glacial pace
- I accidentally deleted your message and can't find it
- I've awkwardly, silently backed away
- I've already replied to you by somewhere else
- I mentally replied to you and considered the matter closed
- I love you and I don't want to lower your opinion of me any further

Sorry, sorry, I completely forgot about this! Hopefully, it's still Wednesday for most of you.

prose


Scribbles by Emily Lund is a short fiction story found on Wordgathering, an online journal for literature (poetry and prose) about and involving disability, one I highly recommend. All of the poetry on there, to my knowledge, also comes in audio versions, either recorded by the poets themselves or the Wordgathering staff - check it out! Here's an excerpt from the story (which is really fantastic, read it):
Do you want more soup? Mom asks me, shaking me out of my thoughts.

I shake my head and stare down at my bowl. Tonight’s entrée is a thick minestrone, not a favorite of mine. We eat a lot of soups and stews now, a holdover from those days when I couldn’t manage a knife very well. In those early days, I would scream at them and cry if they tried to cut my food for me, so they just eliminated the problem. For years, I only ate ice cream in cones, after scooping proved relatively difficult. It was only two years ago, when I was fourteen, that I found I had the courage to tell them that I really hated the taste of cones, and asked if I could please use a spoon. It took a lot of courage I didn’t have, and at 16, I still haven’t worked up the nerve to tell them I’d like to try a steak.

poetry


This poem is by Samuel ibn Naghrillah, also known as Samuel HaNagid or Samuel the Prince (993 CE - 1056?). I'm not sure of the title, but I found the poem via this Tumblr. I also found this article, Deal Gently with the Young Man: Love of Boys in Medieval Hebrew Poetry of Spain by Norman Roth, which is a really interesting read. It includes this poem, but a slightly different translation; this one is the one I prefer though I unfortunately don't know who translated it.

In fact, I love that fawn,
cutting roses in your garden—
which is why I’ve earned your wrath.

If you could see him,
the others would never find you.

Scrape me some honey
from your hive,” he said.

I’ll have mine from your tongue.
I replied.

Then he bristled
and said to me, sullen:
“And sin before the living God?”

The sin’s on me, I answered, my lord.

It's been a breath of fresh air to see you around again, V. You know we missed you more than any of us - even those that are writers! - can put words to, right?

Anyways, you favorited a piece of my writing, and seeing a favorite from you always makes my day. Actually, just seeing anything from you makes my day, but don't let the diminish my appreciation stemming from the fact that you actually took the time to read a piece from me. ;p

All the :heart:s, V.

Darling, I was looking for that lovely poem you wrote based on Federico Garcia Lorca's poem about green. Can you point me in the right direction? Or possibly remind me what the form is called? I'm thinking of writing something like it :)

I missed you! T_T

Life had been cruel to me, thus my ridiculously long absence from dA.
