Struggled painting

Struggled painting

All my life there’s been a struggle within me

one that happened underground and translated into an oppression

but now for the first time, fears are gone

and the struggle has risen to the surface as an intensity

a fierceness promising to burn all the fears that remain deeply buried


This struggle has now taken a face and a name

it’s not anymore solely emotional as it used to be

but it has become also physical

there’s a deep need to come into togetherness with you

a togetherness that would be healing

and would melt the last barriers around our heart
