She Wont Say Goodbye

I missed last week's prompt for Journal52 because of Mother's Day, so I'm playing catch-up a bit. So now I'm also 2 behind on my Documented Life prompts--since I was getting caught up on J52. Oy! But oh well. Last week's challenge was Photography. So for this page I took a photo I tore out of a magazine years ago, of Drew Barrymore and used that for my inspiration.

She Won't Say Goodbye Art Journal Page

I think Drew is so beautiful. This was a multi-page photo spread at the time, with Drew basically dressed in various beautiful gowns in lovely settings. In this case she was a version of Beauty, in Beauty in the Beast. I think she looks sort of melancholy in this photo, so I picked a little poem by Lang Leav to go with the image.

A bird who hurt her wing,
now forgotten how to fly.

A song she used to sing,
but can't remember why.

A breath she caught and kept-
that left her in a sigh.

It hurts her so to love you,
but she won't say goodbye.
