Breathe now for the last breath is gone

Rock-a-bye-on-you
Ever-infant child singing

And let the sweet tears
Carry you home

Happy as humility
Sustains and falls onto its knees

The soul walks on now
To crawl, fly away. Come.

We are all invited to laugh at Love’s funeral
Celebrate the life of every heartbreak birthing
As the solar plexus sounds mad, sad and maybe even …
And here now are the memories that keep killing you with joy

Forcing you to see hope alive
And choose the light that slaps you in the face
And you still must defecate and urinate all over
Eternal misery and or be happy … I’m not sorry for this

Unless you want Love’s living spirit to die …
Again?
Forever?
Heal, rise, write, and paint and so I ask you picture this

A work of art was once created by you … as you were
And a cycle comes full as its last breath is going now

About Torn…. the art work that inspired this poem GiGi writes:

This a double layer of bark and a portrait of my grandaughter Angelica.

Birgitta choose the title…thanks again Birgitta I love it.
Before ,a long time ago , they use to capture the moment in paintings.When I did that layer I had the impression to had captured the beautiful face of my Angelica forever.
