Holes in my heart  by S .

“It’s a cloudy day and the trees shed their leaves
Never surviving a year they wither into the breeze
We were that once, one solid tree
But we can’t control the seasons and so you fall away from me”

    Though many of us have suffered through this same kind of loss, few, if any of us, could match your expression of it in both image and verse. A stunning pairing – the leaves with their heart shape, now full of holes – such a poignant way to visually express that “falling away!”

  • oh wowwwww hun, you always put such a huge smile on my face, i really do appreciate every word you leave me… i leave my heart on my sleeve a LOT in my art so just always know.. you are getting ME
    much love
