The Artist

Oh DARK artist 
What a beautiful picture you create
Not with hues, pigments, and light
But with tone, imagery, and night
The soul an awaiting canvas
Your pen the finest brush
With reckless abandon you work
Is the masterpiece entitled Suffering
Images of sacrifice, torture, and insanity
A downward spiral of regret in the midst
Ah but when did doom ever seem so sweet
So many beautiful extenuating means
Surely they will justify any end
Your tale like sorcery captivates
You carry the title of Ciarraighe
From the dark rain filled lands
The darkness extends to your inner being 
Rain now covering the pictures you paint
Pours forth from within
With each toile of tribulation
Resonating beauty resides
Will the beauty outlive the pain
Unfortunately the canvas cannot answer

    I did see some of them, but didn't know they were paintings of yours. I do check the blogs of all my favorite poets here. You are one of my new favorites. I am still learning many things about poetry, but I do like writing and when I'm not writing I like reading other poems, especially here in a nice, non-formal, but informative setting.

    Nice poem Wayland, I don't know why but I fell in love with this poem. It's almost like the assassination of my mind. I do not know art. What I know is deeper and hides from the lights of this world. Not even I can touch it or explain it... all I can do Is express it, and taste it... and now that my friend is tasting with out fear. LoL;-) time for me to read the poem again. This is my favorite of your poems... hugs.. Linda

    Well this is my favorite comment of yours lol. Thanks so much for really analyzing all of my poems. You are really an inspiration with your humor and your sincerity. Don't tell me I don't really know art that well, other than history, well visual art, but imagery and painted pictures, well that intrigues me. Thanks again for all of your wonderful comments.

    Thanks for sharing! This poem tethers together great points and understandings of an artist. Check Out Words Within: one of my poems. It's about a writer-just as this is about an artist. LEGANDWRITER

    Well my artist is a writer, a person that paints images with words, that creates beauty from despair. A sorceress. I will look at the poem you mentioned.
