Corrosion 2..... by © Janis Zroback

In pools of liquid acid blues
my essence slowly drowns.
Immersed in stinging words of truth,
corrosive hurt compounds
.

Disintegration of the heart
ensues from caustic pains.
Emotions scarred forevermore;
a hollow gap remains
.

Evacuated from the breach;
a blackened residue,
consisting of eroded love
with tints of hopeless hue

Combined inside a crystal vial
with blood from fatal blows,
a mortar’s mixed to fill the void
before the fissure grows
.

Deluged by yards of healing bond
the chasm quickly wanes
but tainted are the elements
this remedy contains
.

Though reconstruction seals the wound
the emptiness abides.
No sealant forged restores a heart
where sorrow’s ghost resides
.
Jo Lynn Ehnes

Corrosion…"Wearing away due to chemical reactions, mainly oxidation (oxidation-reduction, oxide).
It occurs whenever a gas or liquid chemically attacks an exposed surface, often a metal, and is accelerated by warm temperatures and by acids and salts. Normally, corrosion products (e.g., rust, patina) stay on the surface and protect it
…..Painted to look like corroded metal in Watercolour on Indian Paper…

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
