Sometimes She Weeps


Grief disrobes
me bare and cold
Anger burns
my hold on faith

Pounding fists
bloody and bruised
Bitter tears
cry denial

  1. Great words! Love how it relates to the sculpture. Could also relate to someone losing someone in a war or to an accident, or even a break up or divorce. Such a gamut of emotions we humans have, and an infinite number of situations and circumstances to trigger each of them.


    • Try clicking on the image and it’ll blow up to full size. 🙂

      I’ve always been a very visual person, so it figures photographs would help me figure out London and write poetry. 🙂
