Composition of a Still Life~by Inga Harris



Composition of a Still Life

Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting and indoor

as she hesitates to create,
afraid of what the pen may wrought,
thoughts pool to the surface, 
her reflection are as scribbles on a wall.
her thoughts reveal the struggle

passed on from the ones now gone,
her strength, a guarded ration
is a constant struggle all its own
there resides a sadness,
and a perpetual madness,
once on display for all to see;
a saving grace, to save face,
the words now set her free.

with pen in hand, and trembling
mid-air just above the pages,
hopes, dreams, desires emerge,
healing, instead of rages.
she begins to carve out
a much happier ending,
in efforts to endure
this side effect to living.
