The Bedroom #2
Framed faces hang in quiet contemplation,
gazing out at the barren room, in Cornflower blue,
the color of an artist’s eyes.
It is a simple room, for a complex man,
with furnishings the hue of a field of wheat.
The pale, worn floorboards are reminiscent
of a state of mind.
Shutters stand ajar,
in an attempt to let a bit of light
into the darkness that is his world.
