“it is in the pitch-dark hours…”

DSCN0006-001a (1)

it is in the pitch-dark hours
when no one else can see us
that our hearts
bleed out
and blossom
in chrysanthemums of ache

 

(We rarely see a person’s pain behind a smile. And we all carry a memento of it, behind our own.  A friend viewed this earlier and was appalled because she said it looked as if I’d been beaten. That’s my point. But no photographer was harmed, in the shooting of this photograph.)

  1. some moments contain everything
    some pictures capture it
    some words express it
    and some lifetimes
    we learn
    to let it all go

    thank you for
    sharing and baring it all
    and inspiring as always
