The Pain of love.

In memory of Thomas Nunes 9/28/2020, a poem by Pejj Nunes titled “The Pain of Love.

The Pain Of Love.

Caged, the heart holds no waking song of joy.

The pulse has slowed, tho not gone. It carries on____.

How can I express this? What is there to say?

My quiet place is needed now, how long?

Until I can replace the screams in my head.

They____become too loud because your not here!

Tears, too many! The fear is my heart will bleed dry,

If it could? What will become of me? I am still here!

Nothing left but me. Where what was, is no longer mine! Has gone!

Life as one,___now alone___just one. Caged head and heart,

Undefined. Least I shout too loudly to let out the pain.

Love felt deep within bursts outward and is sucked in again,

It cuts deep, and now it weeps because I am without you.

I find the words within that I can express what was for release.

I mourn my loss, only to treasure sadness, and tenderly care for it?

Let it have its place within my heart so I survive without you?

This hurts! It hurts too much and not enough!

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
