A Sentient Peace

Love Story, version II
12" x 16 acrylic on canvas

We've existed in the silent moments,
 without pretty endings or organized happiness,
surviving our tragedies by strength alone

Yet we still attempt to reconcile it all,
taking our last bits of humanity
to hold on to each other

We are creating a sentient peace
among the thriving weeds
with their odes of sorrow

And within that peace,
we will dance lovingly in the cool grasses
of an eternal spring that never ends...
