A Piece of Her Soul

Updated on August 16, 2016

I am a mother, a metal head, a goth girl, and lover of all darkness. I'm also a writer, a cake artist, and a general weirdo.

I hope you like this glimpse into my head. I've provided even more if you'd like to follow up.

She has a way with words,

like painting a portrait.

Each brush stroke more deliberate than the next.

When the caressing of the canvas is complete,

you will have a perfect understanding of

what it is she wanted you to see.

Is it a beautiful sunset, filled with colors so glorious

it takes the breath from your chest?

Is it a doting new mother, tenderly stroking her newborn

infant's fair skin?

Is it a darker thought of demons and the fight for your soul,

which is only decided by you?

Is it something profound, like a lion hula hooping

while a giant purple giraffe plays hopscotch?

No matter.

You see, what she paints on this canvas,

this beautiful, non-judging canvas,

is a gift to you.

It is from her soul and she has been generous, loving enough,

to share with you a piece of her soul.

Be it dark, be it light,

be it profound, be it nonsensical,

no matter.

For it is a piece of herself she gives to you.

    Mike, you're always so kind with your comments. I find it encouraging and it keeps me doing what I do. Thank you, as always, for your support! : )

    CC, I could mirror the thanks I gave Mike for you. You guys are so supportive and I admire your talent so much. To have such wonderful compliments from such talented writers is a humbling experience. Big (((hugs))) CC! : )

    Jess, I like to think I leave a little piece of my soul in each poem I write. Mostly dark pieces, but pieces nonetheless. Thank you for stopping by! : )

    saddlerider, thank you so much for the kind words. I'm happy you enjoyed it! You painted a lovely picture with your comment, and I thoroughly enjoyed that. : )

    A mosaic of a finely painted canvas, filled with bright colors of verse. You caressed the page like a new born babe in your arms. Soft like rose petals falling gently to the ground. Lovely piece, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The beauty of your words is truly a gift, Becca. You are very talented. Words, like pictures are open to interpretation, but that does not diminish the gift of creativity.

    Giant purple giraffe playing hopscotch--a terrific mental image.

    Thanks for once again sharing your talent and your vision.

    thank you so much again, epigramman, for your kind words. it means a lot to me, especially coming from one so talented as yourself.

    interesting fact about me (pretty hilarious or i wouldn't even put it on here) - i always spell piece wrong. i want to spell it 'peice' every time. : ) thanks for stopping by!
