The evil inside

by cricketjeff on June 25, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

All of her life has been poured in her painting
All of the darkness that muddles her mind
The feelings of hatred that she’s been acquainting
The last bits of evil her talent can find
She works without minding the numbness that’s spreading
She’s putting her art and her soul on the page
Quite unaware that her life is now shredding
Now is the nearest she’ll get to old age
Working at speed so she’s nearly completed
Soon there’ll be nothing remaining to do
The canvas is smiling, the artist’s retreated
Be careful when painting the evil in you
