A tumbler full of wine,
smoky coffee, and a pen.
A poet lays his heart
on a sheet of white paper.
Music begins, rain flaunts
he sings a solemn note,
his heart in her memories.
Images of words are forged;
pain, grief, love and disloyalty.
The artist is ready for the show!
His heart all chiselled, holding
a smile in the brightness of the day!
