Poetry Tuesday – Death to an Artist

Edges tainted

Of visions long ago painted,

Corners torn

Since have sworn

Should have let release

The desire to live; just rest in peace.

Soft pencil marks erased,

Only to be replaced

By jagged etching of lines

Sprawled all over, left unrefined.

Severed shards of wood

Litter the ground, misunderstood.

Glass shattered,

Blood splattered,

All that remains

Are broken refrains

Of a song left unsung

And a life undone.
