The Weight of Words by Alison Pearce

Available to buy on…

Oil pastels on printer paper.
Now You’re Just Somebody That I Used to Know – Gotye

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
- Gotye

It’s all good, just needed to get this off my shoulders – throw off a few chains :)

Logan based writer, poet and artist. I seek with the pen and the brush. I think and it rolls out into words or strokes. I believe my writing should paint a picture and that my art should tell a story. I’m an uncomplicated woman in a very complicated way.
