I wrote this in art history class while we were discussing poussin's painting "rape of the sabine women"

Poussin lost his line in the rape of sabine women

There’s beauty in terror

and it’s not all baroque

when your mind is freed of all worldly possession

Blank stares

and all you have is your will to survive

Primal moments

when it’s

no thought

only reaction

to your will to be

eye sight fading

spotted red

fighting tooth and nail

all you hear is your breathing


your all on your own


to whats ahead

whats behind

there’s no tracking time

All this fear in your head

chained up and bleeding

clawing at your mind

to justify

the blank stare

the prolonged glare

for the beauty in terror

the wild eyes

the primal moments

to show

we’re alive
