Doomed

'The marriage of heaven and hell' by Keith Haring, 1985


The hand has reached the hand
to save and not to kill,
to sacrifice no limit love
for youngest grain,

to bend, to hand the ring of life
without a sound of complain
about a case, an awkward way
to fill the lane,complete
short path,

as it’s been seen by sacred eye
as a part of bigger plan,
brought him straight
to the deep water…

  3. That "deep water" at the end feels scary... I hope the hands can swim together, and keep their "youngest grain" afloat.

  4. I saw the painting as a marriage between heaven and hell, echoing life for us too. The choices we have, the decisions we make. Being indifferent doesn't mean a decision hasn't been made. We may be wrong after all!

  8. The next generation bases its experiences upon the 'wisdom' and 'insight' that we hand down to them (at least to some extent). And yet, what/how the young experience is sometimes, quite different than the old. Great work with the prompt(s). Beautifully penned.
