Illustrate our world

Image result for free images blue water color

Words are exacting with

their imprecision. Capturing moods,

colors, but leaving

measurements and formulas out.

Words illustrate our world as

paintings use the human eye to capture low lighting
though the proportions are disjointed.

This is how the writing goes

painful and broken.

Without sacrifice there can’t be art.

Finding strength with my pen, lifting 10,000 pounds and

carrying it

through time and space.

So that someone too will feel

as viscerally as myself. Will know as intimately this condition

called life.

If only for that moment.

If only for that time we share

like two sets of lips pressed

to the same cup,

living that experience.
