​These verses traces the journey of a painting and different emotions it incites in different people .                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

The artist
For colours he begged
Finding none left in him
at last painted his pain
from the tears


For yet unknown to painter
The poet thought
“What he beheld None else
would behold
For he had painted a mirror”

Old man-

Bitter sweet memories of the past
The mirror showed the man
And foraged the smile
Long gone with his beloved

The girl-

The endless sky was the
mirror To the girl
who wanted To hold that
brush Snatched years before ….

P.S The image used is a famous painting by Edvard munch popularly known as the vampire.
