Inside this Gothic womb, now but only a cold cavernous hollow the votive flames steal away in puffs of smoke as I kneel, atom-like, lost in loneliness. Alabaster angels hungrily swallow empty space till they break - bleeding prayers seeking life’s meaning darkly staining the stained glass windows with nothingness.

    I really like this, Susan. Really, really. It's a FAVE for me. I especially like the blending of the religious imagery with the atomization/alienation motif. Very, very effectively executed! (soupmail). Best wishes always, Gershon

    What a creative way to describe loneliness, Susan! Painting an abstract word is hard, but you managed to do that with six lines of pure poetry. ~ Best wishes for a win, my friend. ~ Warm regards // paul
