I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.

Simplicity, Joy & Freedom

Pink, Yellow & Red

Hues strike against the wall

Black steel coiled up

Shadows left behind

Happiness lingers

From my movement

Love trails behind

In silence

With music

Joy fills the air

Dancing to the sound

How simple it is


Strength and freedom from


Rising with the sun

Moving to the rhythm

Being close to creation

Music was the foundation

Inspiration was found

In the sweetest tiniest things

Loving every bit of life

From dawn until night

Slowly Dying

That's when I was happiest

Before he crept in and

Everything started rotting

Slowly creeping

Day by day

Words strung about in the air

The pits of hell

Burst from flames

Believed he was king

So he reigned

A prisoner was I

Held against my will

Too dead inside to even cry

The joy was shattered

Nothing remained

Only pieces crumbled

On the floor

Dirty and damaged

Nothing was like before

      What a contrast! I am not sure if these are in sequence or not, but if they are, what a life change that was. I know it can happen, for it has to me. This is a dynamic duo of poems that lifts one up then body slams us to the canvas. If it is autobiographical, I am glad you survived to write about it.
