Mourning the Make Believe
Mourning the Make Believe is a 36"x36" oil painting on canvas. There is a hanging wire on the back.
I believe this works in an alternate universe,
But here in this one,
This is a happily ever after that isn’t ever happening.
It’s a fictional fairytale I built in the clouds,
With no way down to reality.
I mourn the make believe
Because there isn’t anything real to grieve.
This world is full of infinite possibilities,
So it’s possible there’s a version where this ends happily.
