Out of Range

“Out of Range”
Sometimes they whisper…
sometimes they scream,
on the border of my dreams.
But I was misunderstood,
heart-soft, and obscured
by my naive rain.
A trade off for pleasure in pain…
for what I didn’t see, didn’t know.
If I listen will they help me grow…
out of this nonsense-sense mind of mine again.
To feel alone in time knows no end,
So I listen…
Listen to them,
those are the lines.
They bend again…
and again.
The branches align…
with the sweet sap they bleed,
from a view where I can’t see.
Their sharp splinters were shed,
because nothing was said…
Until it’s too late,
and I just didn’t see.
Out of range.
Out of reach.
Filling the years,
breaks and holes and tears.
Above it all…
the branches…
About the Artist:
Natalie’s primary goal as an artist is to evoke feeling through her words and photographs. Her artistic journey began long ago but it wasn’t until she entered her 30s that photography and writing became the primary outlets for her artistic expression. She likes to share the way she sees the world with those who are interested in her perspective. She is inspired by light, shadows, contrast, shapes, lines, colors, words, nature, adventure, music, and of course, the people, and animals she loves! She has recently been experimenting with self-portraiture and finding additional outlets for her art. While experimenting in different directions and following her passions as they arise, she is laying the groundwork for the future paths of her artistic journey. Her work has been published by Lensbaby, Beyond the Wanderlust, and she is an artist at Offset.com.
