In the Darkness Came the Art

theano's picture
Dark, ominous, foreboding
Thoughts and feelings floating
Clouded vision, clouded eyes
Living dead, wants to die

Black, menacing, threatening
Affliction suffering
Losing the love, Losing the life,
Listing sins, filled with strife

Pain, agony, reliving
Sweet relief in the drawing
Tangled thinking, tangled speaking
Sketching life, sketch dreaming

Numb, paralyzed, abashed
Color and lines penciling
Clearing the way, Making a path
Curving ways, Curving wrath

Tears, a healing, more crying
Pours out through my finger tips
Intense focus, Intense movement
Release please, Release please

Peace, a calmness, a respite
Animals symbols abstracts
Metaphor light, metaphor dark
Balance in, balance out

In the darkness came the art
In the darkness came my life

This is so wonderful! So very wonderful.
I'm sure everyone can interpret this in their own way but for me . . . . this is often how I feel. Depression gets splattered all over my pages when I'm feeling dark. It's a release. I always feel better after.
This is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing it.
