Author’s Note: Artists are fortunate that they have their art to turn to in times of greatest stress and despair. But sometimes even artists have difficulty getting re-energized by their work.
And all of us have had to, at one time or another, don the mask of normalcy to face the world during a time of personal sadness.
Too Shattered to Spin
Too shattered to spin two words together
unless the words tell
of love crushed under the weight of reality.
Too crushed to think of tomorrow
‘cause I already know that
tomorrow brings nothing but more reminders
that all is lost
Too lost to find my way to happy ;
to regain my buoyant spirit,
to say hello once more
There was no foul
There is no fault
There was surprise
There was fascination
There was delight
There was no way
There is no remedy
There is despair
There is grief
There is a mask ready
