The Painter and His Canvas

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 20:59 -- OstrinC

 

I measure every Canvas -with introspected eyes-

I wonder if it will fit- my beautiful Disguise.

 

I wonder if Some see the beauty-or just what it’s worth-

like a secret recipe -A Painter can not explain the birth-

 

I wonder- when my brushes have piled- Some thousands in a box-

That hurt Them deeply, like a child- can They have a talk?

 

could They go on bleeding-Through Planks of Wood-

Onto the White Canvas-In contrast with the Red-

 

Death- draws to the eye “is but one- and comes but once”-

 

I note that Some- understand, waiting for the kill-

A bigger Picture- a Canvas- with so little to fill

 

My Canvas is painted- painted Red- from a thing They call “Pain”

There is but one look in closed eyes- the look of Vain

 

I do not guess-Though correctly-

I am correct- there is Comfort in my Canvas

I hope to Connect.

 

Note the Canvas-the Canvas of Life-

And how it is painted-Ready to disguise-
