Chain Reaction

For every time

You clawed into

My skin

You created art

That inspired

My pen to stain

These pages

In poetry.


The Artist

22 Dec

She drew unusually,
people with objects they
were never meant to have.
Like, a child with a weapon,
an adult with a pacifier.
Because what she saw
was just as unusual –
a child being authoritative
an adult desperate to be loved.
She hid love
within broken images
she depicted misery
in solemn oaths of forever.
She was weird to most eyes
for she saw what they couldn’t
Quite simply put, the truth
and when the truth is weird
we live in a pretty twisted world.
