dreadful heart

as the howl of it
touches outward,
all creased and without,
so this most open wound
spills ,endless, relentless,
more than one mighty ocean,
may never wash it clean.

there are places set,
for those that will not seat,
who are away,
now, this day,
and for every day.

footprints, and fingerprints
that will not repeat.

yet as i try so hard to see
against all that measures me,
there will in time be certainty, and
relief.

such is the nature,
such is the hard irrational beat
of the dreadful heart of grief.

dreadful heart

Artist's Description

I find myself reading the writings of Matty b. Duran, and the sadness and incredible struggle that is in her words. having lost someone close recently I do understand the confusion and the sadness it brings. unfortunately, I do not have a faith, at least not in a very outward sense, so I still feel lots of questions will never be answerd. so I carry my own sorrow in a different way, but her writing reminds me of how individually we feel these great emotions, and still, how important it is to know others are able to understand them too, in their own way. it is great solace.
