Hello My Darling V
by Venus Libido
Venus Libido is a female illustrator based in South East England. Her work is a reflection of her bitterness and irritation towards a male dominated society and issues that stem from mental health and being body conscious. She portrays images that are provoking yet comical, addressing and illustrating issues that are validating to those in similar situations.
The words and image in this confession were submitted by our artist collaborator Venus Libido! A ode to self love and masturbation, what could be better!? I love the illustration so much, thank you Venus! x
I can hear you now but I couldn’t before
Your sound is soft and enters with ease
I am addicted, I plead for your return
I reach for you with forgiving arms
I can see you now but I couldn’t before
Your body moves in loops and whirls
You leave behind a footprint and I hope it stains
I want to tend to it and honour its past.
I can smell you now but I couldn’t before
You’re at the back of my throat starting to nest
You’re vast and infinite but I see a familiar face
I can taste your frame and its bulky and overflowing
You are my saviour and my place of release
I will tend to your call
My darling V I shall not neglect you not now not ever.
