Inked Quill

lines of love flow freely

from her inked quill

there upon the whitewashed walls

surrounding his scarred heart

tattooing there

hope and visions

for her lover to perceive

  1. This is so beautiful. I love your use of alliteration which adds to the flow of this piece.

  2. This is beautiful. Very concise and tender in a way. I like how it’s not inked upon the heart itself, perhaps allowing it to heal from the scars already there. Offers a very supportive and caring side.
    Excellent, really like this!

    • Thank you Mark. I really appreciate that. I was feeling tender and nurturing I guess you could say when I wrote this. I’m so pleased you like it and wow that you shared it on your own page. I am so humbled right now.


      • You’re most welcome, I really liked this one. And yes, those feeling really shone throw. All your work is very personal, and it’s all very tangible too; there are no barriers. So thank you, and I’ve tracked you down on Instagram now, so I get double the fun! 🙂
