Locked Behind the Lashes

by Larry Chamberlin   Feb 28, 2018

You huddle in grief from the pain
and I wish that I could say all of it was due
to the actions of another.

I wipe your tears with the pages of our novel
wondering if any of it was worth writing
to have left you beset this way.

Open your arms, reach through to me
and let us make this day the first of many
that will heal the wounds between us.

    Judging Comment - Locked Behind the Lashes
    by Larry Chamberlain points 4 - This is an astounding piece by Larry especially when it was only brought to life (or so I think) by Tony's picture prompt which in my opinion made the art come to life. The imagery is absolutely beautiful yet so very sad that it brought a tear to my eye… It made me think of 2 lovers handing each other an olive branch to mend old wounds, fantastic.

    I could have sworn I'd commented on this obviously not but better late than never so I'm told this is a stunningly beautiful yet some what sad interpretation of Tony's picture prompt

    Thanks for the interpretation, I enjoyed it a lot. So interesting the way people observe art differently, guess a picture really is worth a thousand words.
