A river of rage resides in me

And I am building it for you to see.

Because it needs acknowledging;

Licking gently at its victims

As they turn to ashes.

Lonely Teenage Part Discovered Whilst Painting Dots

I tapped into a teenage part of me whilst painting dots. I was feeling lonely. One of the things I love about painting is the meditative aspect. I can sit and be aware of thoughts, feelings and sensations without the need to act on them because I’ve dedicated myself to the task of painting dots.
