A life soaked in colors

images (3)

Dreams of painting life with a thousand colors
Crashed to the ground like a bird with burned wings
While looking at my images I brushed with true colors
Seems funny, and unworthy for others.

Art of this world is what I have forgotten to learn
To make portraits in a single-minded mould
Where a palette comprises seldom choices
And colors are often mixed with tears.

Now my hands are tired to brush the dusk of my life
My bright-colored portrait seems red, and smells blood
As a painter at heart, all I know is to paint
And the only color which left to paint is my blood.

Perfect Poet Award Week 53


Thank you so much for this lovely diamond. I really appreciate the work that you guys do, and gladly accept the award. (Anthony)

    Wow. the artist’s life.
    i get the feeling of an enervation here…yet the artist continues, because? that’s all he/she knows. his/her calling….to which the artist must attend, though bruised and battered.
    I’m saddened – I’m the Reader. I’ve been moved and am now concerned.

    Good job in moving me – your reader. thank you for sharing.
