The Artist

His brush dips deep

Deep into the ocean of sadness

He gives it life and feeds it light

Reveals to us the inner turmoil we abandon

He fishes it gently to the surface of his canvas

Where he lovingly acknowledges it

On paper he plays with it

Loosely wrapped in wild graphite

He grieves the loss of innocence

The teeth of time that viciously take

Joyful, youthful ignorance

Leaving it aware and wide awake

Suddenly he is surrounded

By clouds of energetic fireflies

They burn him with their praise

They blind him with their gaze

He collapses into the depths

Dropping both his pencil and his brush

Deep into the dark waters of the night sky

Where starry silence sings him to sleep
