Artists on a Limb – Consumed Within

artAndwordsHello everyone and welcome back to Words on Art, where we invite artists and writers to collaborate and creatively blend brush strokes with words. We would like to thank Marc Mullo for his successful writing submission, Consumed Within, chosen to complement Emily Page’s untitled painting. We would love to hear your feedback on this creative blend. Feel free to share your thoughts in the reply box below. Thank you Emily and Marc.

Consumed Within

Facing seemingly insurmountable odds in one’s life,
It’s quite a familiar feeling for me amidst such strife,
Relentless by an attack of enlightened proportions,
Ever feared and hurt towards mindful conclusions,
Fortunate not having overtaken our deep inner soul,
Igniting a sense of desperation can be a difficult goal,
Going through turbulent times feels like you’re alone,
Having the strength and courage can ease any tone,
Thankful of loving family and friends makes us whole!
