art that makes me cry (thank you, Jen Huber)



This is another amazing piece called “Broken Hold” (original post) by one of my favorite artists and closest friends, Jennifer Huber (I’ve featured her art here before). In all seriousness, I just started crying looking at this and just had to post it. This particular piece reminded me a lot of one of my favorite songs by some other good friends of mine (who are also amazing artists), the band My Epic. You can find the song and the lyrics below. This piece especially reminded me of the last line of the song. Enjoy.

“Communion” by My Epic [Spotify] [YouTube  Lovers’ eyes are meant to gaze
Convey the weight of a poet’s praise
And hands designed to hold
To say what lips cannot

Lovers live for embrace
Their forms enjoined as their pulses race
Their forms are steady and sure
And this act, their bond restores
And it’s love without remorse

I’m told that you hold all things
And without you that I’d cease to be
Oh my lover I feel alone, and though I know these are primitive needs
I still need you here to hold me

A cup, a candle and this bread
A table for remembrance
The quiet awe of penitence
The still refrain of broken men

In this moment weakness speaks
I feel the weight of my being
And for the moment you release
The particles in everything

I am undone

I’m told that you hold all things
And without you that I’d cease to be
Oh my Jesus I feel alone, and I know these are primitive needs
But I still need you here to hold me

But You don’t just hold me
You hold me together
