Poem: Starvation and Sorrow

She’s disjointed


Gaunt, sunken

A cubist

A Picasso

Unable to eat

Fearing life

Broken, abused


But not finding


Without vocal chords

A crow’s broken wing

A bleeding arrowhead

Sickly and staunch

Hearing voices

She buries herself

In the past

At the foot

Of her gravestone

Already inscribed

A martyr

Lost in the web

Of starvation

And sorrow.

Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
