Decadence by KassandraLeigh Decadence by KassandraLeigh
Your Beautiful Enemy:
Music by Yveline and James Oylen

Spiders make your skin their home
And breed with no remorse
On lifeless flesh and tasteless blood
They've found their perfect source
A victim of your confidence
Has sent these webs to you
The confines of my bitterness are
Crawling on you too

Crawling on you too

I was once an asset to your game
Now you'll find me spitting on your name
Trust was left to wilt
The flowers of your guilt
Now your beauty knows who is to blame

It's time to lay down the dead where they should lie
For you I would tear down the Ides of March
With a smile
You failed - I know
You fall - I grow
Speak through lips I have shut

The concentration of your mind
Has never left your flaws
You benefit from nothing save
Commitment to your cause
Ashes spread across my feet
Are all I'll ever need
To know that you were meant to be
A ghost where maggots feed

Wasting time you tried to have me tamed
Out of bounds a woman I became
You failed to understand
The power in my hand
Now your beauty knows who is to blame

It's time to lay down the dead where they should lie
For you I would tear down the Ides of March
With a smile
You failed - I know
You fall - I grow
Speak through lips I have shut
The last maladjusted men have made their mark
By hunting the children fleeing in the dark
The people cry while the city dies
And glorified are hopes and dreams and lies
The night is cold without safety's hold
Uncharted weeds - this was my home

Your frozen bliss could not resist
My poison memory
When hope is leaking down your wrist
You will remember only me

I was once a prize for you to stain
You lusted for the life that I reclaimed
And you destroyed your part
Of my beloved art
Speak through lips I have shut
---------------------------------------- --
PS, as always never photoshoped.
Annndd as always, if i catch you fucking
stealing my photos i swear ill hunt you down,
rip out your inners with my very hands and
use your viens to lace up my corset.



On a lighter note... I luff you?

VanGargoyle Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2004
Just simply freaking amazing looks.

You remind me so much of a couple of models I've worked with that I started going in circles through your gallery.
KassandraLeigh Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2004  Professional Photographer
Aw im utterly flattered! Looking through your own work im quite enviouse of your photography
skills! The only thing id like to enquire over, is the grain due to ISO , or scanning(or my own brain lol)?
VanGargoyle Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2004
Which grain are you asking about? Mine? Yours?

Deviant art's comment system was forumlated so as artists of any sort
in the deviant art community could give Criteques, to fellow artists. Now
if your not familar with that, it means you give constructive critisism. C+C.
Compliments and Critsism.

As for my spelling, it is simply due to the fact i have a shitty keyboard.
In oneof my less composed moments i had this keyboard smashed and i
had to reconstruct it has its good days, and bad days.

Also, the reason my gallery is all of me, (seeing you hadnt noticed already),
is because this is my modeling portfolio.
Hell-resides Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2004
Yes your imaginary "modelling portfolio", If you are not aware real models one with agents and jobs actually have a website dedicated solely to them with their measurements and contact details that include their agents who of course spot these women out and give them contracts that involve a revenue. This is an art website, not who wants to be a model contestant website if you are so adamant on being one I suggest you go about it the right way.Instead of posting pictures of yourself online and automatically assuming you are the next Eva Herzigovina, understand??????

Art. By Definition what i post IS, art.

art (ärt)
Human effort to imitate, supplement, alter, or counteract the work of nature.

The conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium.
The study of these activities.
The product of these activities; human works of beauty considered as a group.
High quality of conception or execution, as found in works of beauty; aesthetic value.
A field or category of art, such as music, ballet, or literature.
A nonscientific branch of learning; one of the liberal arts.

A system of principles and methods employed in the performance of a set of activities: the art of building.
A trade or craft that applies such a system of principles and methods: the art of the lexicographer.

Skill that is attained by study, practice, or observation: the art of the baker; the blacksmith's art.
Skill arising from the exercise of intuitive faculties: “Self-criticism is an art not many are qualified to practice” (Joyce Carol Oates).

arts Artful devices, stratagems, and tricks.
Artful contrivance; cunning.
Printing. Illustrative material.
---------------------------------------- --------------
Art is one of the more grey areas. There is no one definition of what makes
something art or artistic. Expression, a smile, a corpse, a drawing, a song...
Al of these things are art .. Photography ,bodymodification, makeup,all of these
things and more, old symbolic significants and can be consiterd art,as well.

Also, didnt life tell you that only fools make assumptions?Im not even familar
with the woman you above mentiond.
Hell-resides Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2004
Ohh yes you needed to consult a dictionary wait did it forget talent or did you leave that out of your copy and paste explanation there Queen of all that is art, please tell me why you consider yourself an artist when you are a tool

the definiton of tool:To form, work, or decorate with a tool.
To ornament (a book cover) with a bookbinder's tool....basically decoration that is you a decorated face " Ohhh la la Monet is falling on his knees to your 'art'

thats what you are a mere decoration open up your pathetic little eyes and see you hardly have any artistic credibilty you commercialize your face and that only, you are a limited tool. There are people with extrodinary amounts of talent, people that are never noticed because of there modesty and then there are the ones like you....who are simpletons your art is booooring and maybe I am the first to say so because we live in a world of yes men...get of your pedestal which you so humbly put yourself on and look around.....why do you get so many page views??? The answer is simple you are just a face,a cute face but I have seen cuter so spare me the what is art lecture and I recommend you look into what is art yourself more in depth than just checking it in a dictionary and you will come to this remarkable realization the one i have already discovered that you are not an artists at all
KassandraLeigh Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2004  Professional Photographer
lolmy dear im sorry that you may be so bored as you feel the need to bash and
condense yourself so as you are unable to see beauty in it. There is beauty in all
things. Art is showing the beauty in all things. It is a sad day when people are unable
to see the beauty in art. Symbolism is my favorite medium, and its rare anyone
has the capasity to note it , or take the time to look into it.Search for it.

And i do agree, alot of my page views are from perverse men .However an equal
amount are people who can understand the symolism and such.

PS: u do relize i draw as well mon ami?
Hell-resides Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2004
Wow, you draw but you rarely put that up now don't you....really you must be proud of your drawing ability....You are here to get compliments to fill your egotistical head up some more...yes isn't that why don't deny it....Ohhh and after something gets repeatively reproduced( I am talking about your face) it loses it's artistic allure now If writers were to write the same thing, the same boring storyline over and over again no-one will but their novels actaully it will be considered the same book you sure is about beauty, sure its about symbolism but theres only so much symbolism your FACE CAN DO!!!!!!!!!!! you can draw so can a million people better than you too, even your drawings are something that has been created before it lacks authenticity and originality and your face is boooooring, did I mention it is SOOOOO goddamn boooring wow first I said to myself sure yeh she is pretty quite infact people always post pics of themselves to identify their art with the artist but you everything is of you 200 hundred and something infact.....Symbolism my slavic ass.....Ohhh yeh art is also about creativity which you seem to lack a fuckload of.

"You're a very judgemental and close minded person. You could have given me constructive criticism and acted as a fellow mature artist instead of insulting my work.
Have a good day. "

I think she had some good pionts.

I've been looking through your gallery for a while and admiring your work. You put together your images so well. This one would have to be my favorite of them all. I really do like the soft lighting and how your eyes seem to stand out more on the image. Nicely done. - Archel.
priest-black Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2004
this is so beautiful. if you ever come across an album called visions of verspertina i suggest you but it and fall in love with it. and if you do get it listen the first song -the garden- speed through it until you reach 3:40 and listen to it from there. that part of the song strikes a cord in my heart everytime. i almost shed soft tears to this photo. very beautiful this is. new age madame of moth. awsome work. :star:
Elfpire Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2004   Traditional Artist
This has to be the most wicked piece that I've seen of you. You know what you should do next just to be funny is to goth out your little stuffed penguin and do a shoot with that. People love penguins.

Your pictures portray a great emotion, every single one of them. ^^ on a girly note, what colour is your lipstick? It's a gorgeous shade.

Do you do all of this yourself? The makeup, the costumes, the scene's and poses?
KassandraLeigh Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2004  Professional Photographer

contradictions Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm OCD with alot of things, but I cannot believe a photographer turned you down, with your looks, you could go pretty far. I bet hearing compliments gets annoying after awhile, hmm?
