To Vincent,

I have always been fascinated with the paintings of Van Gogh and his life. I recently had watched the movie Loving Vincent(2017) that provided further insights into his personal life, his journey into art and his struggles.

Here is a short poem I wrote a while ago as a tribute to his life and his sufferings. I hope you will excuse errors of any sort made by this non native English speaker:)

sketch by the author

Blessed art thou, for thou hast lost thy sane.

Comforts, the whole lingers over, to thee just vain.

Ill-fated not, Freed art thou by god himself and his ‘Destiny’ named blade.

Oh dearest thou,

thou, shall find thy peace in the full moon’s shade.
