Agony of an Artist

Reading : 1 minute

In this verse, Elsy unravels the of an artist, who despite his weaknesses soars up with strength. A poem about the dynamics of creativity exclusively for Different Truths.

With strength hidden

in the center of ,

artist lives

in soft dreams

veined with love.

When hit hard

at the soft core,

he spins in rhythmic beats,

shaping wonders in tongues,

native to heart.

Agony is an art to him,

deft, at morphing rupture

into supernal rapture.

He sits majestic

on the throne of the artist

with joy that is teary

and woe that is bubbly.

The artist lives through agony,

as gold through fire,

smelting agony into marvels

with ’s own mint mark on them!
