Heart is numb
Absence of mind
Damaged soul
Longing to die

The way you care for her
The way you protect her
Never the same
When we are together

Thought I felt the worst when I found out
I never had an idea, it broke me apart
I am so lost, sorrow never seems to end
How can living be more painful than death.


Now sitting in this temporary home

With only myself, a pen and this note

So much to ask, so much to tell

These four corners watched as tears fell


How do I start my life over

When in the past decade to you I have shared

Now it’s empty without any purpose

Left with pain and agony, elusive thoughts.


Without enough sleep, my eyes weep

Calling the name of my mother, longing for her care


To help ease the pain

Bed flooded in tears

This heart cannot feel any anger

But sorrow and fear


Went to a place where we started

Only to bring back memories we have shared

Looking back, there is so much to cherish

But now your love, suddenly had vanished.

Instantly, thoughts overflowed my mind as I read Daily Prompt’s Frame of Mind; blogging and painting—amongst those that interest me.


Modern Mona Lisa, a contemporary version of da Vinci’s self-portrait, renders acceptance with herself and adaptation to change. Her smile depicts happiness and contentment whilst bravely facing challenges ahead. A work of art which started since she was born, gradually revealing clearer image of herself as the world continuously revolves. Painted on a canvas, it shall be hanged in an exhibit’s wall, sooner the color will fade, by and by will be forgotten.
