To The Artist: A Poem

Hi there! Please enjoy this evening’s piece of creativity, a poem about art.


I would sink

Through stripes of paint brushed

Over cream-coloured canvas, down

Into pools of ink, drowning

My sorrows in a swirl of coloured

Silk and a splash of

Oil; You are

Creating a masterpiece from

The personifications of all your pains,

Paint-spattered and sweaty,

Capture your demons on the page,

Trap them with varnish, from

Beneath which they gaze in red and orange hues;

Step back and observe;

The beauty you have gained; see

How this process starts

To heal it once again.
