Broken Heart, Krista

Broken Heart.
Digital Media and poetry.


about this piece.
I did the drawing and wrote the poem the same day but had no idea they went together until I put them in the computer. - Krista

about the artist.
Krista is a 27 years old woman who has had three healthy, full term pregnancies followed by three miscarriages. First at 12wks (blighted ovum), second at 16wks4ds (Benjamin), and the most recent at 21wks (Kadence).

I also had a chemical pregnancy the first cycle after my first loss and the first cycle after my last loss, both were devastating. Since my last loss I have been using art as a way of getting my grief out and have really appreciated this site and seeing other women's work. - Krista


  1. Powerful piece. Both the words and the imagery.

  2. Very emotive. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Krista this is powerfully true and impacting. I wish I was never initiated and so too all those other parents. It is an awful crushing that is never mended! Thank you for sharing your clarity with us in such an honest way.

  4. The poem and it's image speak VOLUMES. Thank you for sharing! HUGS!

  5. Thank you for opening your heart.
