love bordering on graffiti
16 x 20 mixed media on canvas
You may be asking asking why? why does she title a painting
love bordering on graffiti? well, good question. I ask myself the same ;)
Often times, the title just pops in and other times, I give it deeper thought.
This is one of those times when the title just popped!
Does it make sense? probably only to me, but I'll attempt explanation.
love bordering on graffiti, to me, is the after-affect of loving someone
who was very wrong, hence the markings on her face and imagine the markings from the damage and the hurt within.....collateral damage for giving
her heart to someone who clearly did not deserve her devotion.
Sad but true and so love can get ugly at times. Ugly in the sense that some people speak of love, write of love, dream of love but they know nothing about l o v e...BUT they are really good at making us think they do.
I love with my whole heart and I
don't regret ever doing so, I only regret how blindly and for how long.
I loved someone who was wrong for me, but he was also right in far too many ways, which should have been my first clue.
Lesson learned: Do not give your whole heart and trust; without it being fully earned.
Simple huh? well, it is for those who are capable of turning off those feelings ar at least slowing them down to the point of saying okay, "I must take my time here." However, admittedly, this has never been my strong suit, BUT IT IS NOW! :)
love is human
love is flawed
but to love is to breathe
and i want to keep breathing
