orange lights snap shut
darkness surrounds sudden grossly
dank smells rise putrid
heart palpitating now unabated
low whispers menacing quietly
imagined room forever trapped
my mind crushed explodes

  1. Dawn, you seem to do amazing things w/such difficult colors to work with. This orange has so much emotion and power, yet you seem to “be the master” of it. I think this piece has become one of my new favorites. 🙂
