life, rain, art, and truth

van-gogh-sunflowersdetail

I wake up to a rain cleansed world

new scents fill the air, fresh and vibrant

And I begin to wonder,

how do I get that cleansing deep inside of my wounded heart?

My heart is not in pain

there is simply the emptiness of lost years inside

Sleeping next to a man who never really knew me

one who never actually took the time

I was a water color painting to him

soft muted colors, one running into the next

But in my own head I was Van Gogh or Mary Cassatt

beautiful colors with soft edges

depictions of life and love in all of its beauty

some filled with moments of madness,

some divinely inspired

With my morning coffee in hand I venture out into the dawn

Every sound a reminder of life

its unceasing rhythm

it stops for no one

it only slows

you choose to step up to meet it

or are left behind by it

I want to be wrapped up in it

to feel its embrace

to have it enfold me in its colors and sights and sounds

to taste the day upon my tongue

to know the sting of it upon my flesh

to hear its every beat match that of my own heart

I will not be left behind

and I will never again surrender my soul to a man who does not know

all of my colors

    Reblogged this on The Bedroom Submissive and commented:
    This story shows why you shouldn’t stay in a situation where your nit honored or respected. Don’t waste your time being muted or with someone who doesn’t appreciate who you are inside.
    Also, if you’re not happy with what you’ve become. You can change it become the “Van Gogh” that is screaming to come out. Be brilliant.. Glow… Time, we waste it. Don’t waste another day. Make you, your marriage more. Ask for what you want. Be honest and forthcoming.
    Don’t be lonely….

      You know me because you listen. even when I think you are not, you are. Your actions speak volumes. And each day I wait to see what you do next.
