The brush.

The brush.

With each gentle stroke
Her heart aches
Longing for a time not long ago
When what was once full and luminous
Meant health and vitality
Now visions in the mirror
Dull and barren
A nightmare
a curse
A painful reminder

of

What once spoke of beauty
Now weeps
Webs of tears
Golden locks
Caught in the brush

The brush.

Artist's Description

as most of you know i’ve recently shved my head to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

what you dont know is that even though i chose to shave my head for breast cancer and i dont have cancer, i do have some understanding of what it feels like to loose your hair because of illness.

so armed with the “Knowing” of how heart wrenching it can be to see those webs of locks entangled in the brush i put it down in words.

HUGS xxxx thank you for reading it

Namaste’

Jilli
