When Words Failed Me

20140720-151607-54967379.jpgWhen words failed me
once upon a time
I drew out my heart
and carved out the rhymes
that fell out of it
every damn word
I drew every tear of pain
for every word, unheard

And when it was all over
when all I wanted was to destroy every one
every page bearing proof  of my despair,
a time when I was undone,
you kept them all hidden
you kept them all safe from me
the one for whom each stroke of my pen –
to my scarred lock, was its key

  1. Yes! I stood and gave you a loud, Hell Yes! An inspiring release and your artwork is so expressive with such clean lines. I was pulled so deep into this, so quickly, I lost both flip-flops and my dignity too. I loved it!

    1. Thank you so much, Willy! I hope you found your flip-flops – and your dignity 🙂

      I was quite prolific then with my drawing, though most of them are really painful to look at. But thank goodness I stuck to pen. It would have been more interesting with all the colors 😛

      1. I think you should draw more, a lot. You are talented and have a style great for illustration. You’re picture with the tear produced a similar one way over here. That’s powerful! 🙂

    1. Thank you. I’ve always wanted to put art and poetry together. I remembered seeing a reproduction of Frida Kahlo’s diary one day and paired with her words, the art was so powerful.

      It’s so nice to meet you, too!

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
