Drabbles of Art - Untitled by Zdislav Beksinski
Finding the pictures for the Drabbles of Art series is a lot of fun and sometimes I receive some excellent recommendations and last week it was suggested that I check out Zdislav Beksinski and this untitled piece immediately grabbed my attention. I wasn't sure what the story would be at that point, but that didn't take long to come.
If you want to read the previous drabbles in the series then you will find them all here:
If you klnow of a piece of art you'd like me to consider featuring then leave a comment below and I'll take a look.

Even in Hell you can find love, and perhaps that is the greatest torment of all.
Alone the pain is endless. The scorching dust shrivels the flesh and desiccates the soul. There’s no respite, but eventually you almost grow accustomed to it.
Then I met her. Another traveller in this desert of suffering. In the howling gale we couldn’t talk and never even learned each other’s names. Small comfort came from holding each other close, entwined in limbs as dry as sticks.
Alone I endured, but watching the constant despair in her eyes my pain is magnified a thousand fold.
