The Colour Of Pain


Easel erect, the canvas primed
Paints each one evenly aligned

An artist sets to depict his pain
Every stroke, a weighted strain

Darken purple’s cast his gloom 
Amongst angry red’s felt doom

Blacken green no hope to quell
As he painted of his untold hell

No light hues to give him hope
Trapped, within a limited scope

In his anguish he paints it black
For him there’s no turning back

I wrote a piece a while ago titled “The Canvas” it allowed me to walk inside an artist dark painting. I wonder what I would see if I walked into this one.
