Painting Spaces

reluctant participants

in each other’s life

they did their best

to cobble a life together

and retain some space

for individuality

 

a stained glass table

provoked thoughts

if it was constituted

of spaces

or fillers

of empty moments

 

yet

the picture

looks heartbreakingly

beautiful

  1. Heartbreaking, beautiful. I guess the beauty comes out of them doing their best – there is in love in that. Plenty of willing participants in each other’s lives take love for granted and do less than their best.
