A lovely image of mustard-yellow flowers on the left side, in the background a blue-colored curtain

Consecutive betrayals.
Attractive deceptions.
False pleads.
“fabricated tears.”
Tiny rooms in minds and hearts.
Lacerating wounds.
Dead wounds.
Endless guilt.
Restless despair.
Undying anticipation.
Stoic hope.
Stabbing pain.
“about reeling from pain.”
Dreams.
“of good dreams and bad dreams.”
Motivation.
“deliberation.”

Snake-like hood of a table lamp.
Gentle air from a portable fan.
Half-painted canvases.
Sketches of passing life.
Charred remains of charcoal.
Half-filled water bottles.
Peeling wall paint with peering limestone.
Swaying silken loops of prayer-beads held by a nail on a wall.
