A poem

Vacant Angel 

A vacant angel paints 

a silhouetted masterpiece 

with drunken passion on 

a black imagined canvas, 

creating psychedelic 

metaphors of smoke and 

sculptured fashion in 

aesthetic harmony 

with her life in 

the surreal. 

She smears 

experimental messes 

with bitter strokes 

of broken wings, 

that scream through 

angry little portraits 

of her insecurity. 

Another dismal tapestry 

of shattered dreams 

and sunken hope 

that dulls her 

dank existence 

and lessens the 

absurdness of 

her own reality. 

When she deems the 

picture finished 

she esteems herself 

less futile than she is 

and calls it art.
