Untitled by Marianne Murdock


“Untitled” by Marianne Murdock


i’m trying to find someone as broken as i

as depleted

as ugly

as grief-stricken

as lost


i see beauty

i see light

i see controlled light – my favorite

i see hair

silky, almost parted down the middle, brown hair

and i think …

that used to be me


i see a horse sculpture and it captivates me

i yearn for what you have
