Artist's Description

Illustration for the poem Blood Rose Tears

The Blood Rose Tear

determined and aware
she has me peeking
behind curtains

when not running
from tree to tree
in the forbidden woods
where she now resides

I’ve no choice but to follow
her hand in mine
I am pulled

it is dark
I run blindly

(one day I will guide
and she will know
the light
she has forgotten)

for now
black blood ink tears
drip and stain
I cannot look at her

the way is blocked
she knows lies
I will never believe
except…I do

in my nightmares
she reins queen
cutting deep
bleeding me

leaving me to seek
only one salvation

it is written in abstract
on the canvas
not many can read it
or want to

or awake
the premonition of dread
dances with the devil
in my head

these thoughts
have no real words
yet I see them
in violent shapes and colors
dominant lines
bold textures

is this written?
aligned under the stars
or is there choice
within my power

there has been so much death

subduing profound birth

abundant beauty

seated beside evil

but there is hope…

and this is, after all
it’s season

I shall catch
the blood rose tear
tend to its garden

we shall see what grows
