I recently discovered this touching poem Drowning In Shadows written by © Maz 2007 and it really inspired me to create this painting
Drowning in Shadows
Through my tainted heart I cry out for you,
wading through the darkness in search of a face
a face of lost light
Do we try in vain to find our solace?
Perhaps the darkness should serve to caress our pain
ease our fears
Show to us eternal torment in a shadow,
one of which shrouds you from my view.
Give to us the suffering of a thousand sins
so our hearts can rest in peace.
Falling into oblivion, I cry out for you,
the angel from my dreams.
The angel that holds my soul.
