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:)
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.
