    Here I am my pitiful self:
    gaunt face, empty belly,
    head shrouded in gauze.
    What have I become?
    I contradict myself--
    so much beauty inside
    and yet, so much pain,
    and I look so calm
    To be so mad...
    so this is how it feels
    to walk the tightrope of sanity
    and topple to the earth
    and try to grasp that rope again
    to pull myself back up,
    but everytime I try,
    I fall further than before.
    Yet, no matter how far I fall,
    I scrape the beauty from my mind
    and preserve it for the world.

      very nice. i absolutely love the the last two lines about scraping the beauty from my mind to preserve it for the world. i see the painting in this one - green coat, black fur hat, bandage going around head, over ear and under chin - self portait.

      Wonderful... by any chance was this inspired by a particular painting/drawing of him? If so, I think I know which one. "To walk the tightrope of sanity"... beautiful. And eerily accurate. How often are the most amazing artists, sculptors, musicians, etc., also those the world considers "touched". And how often does that delicate balance between creativity and mania result in the most beautiful, most powerful works of art ever created. C'est magnifique! <><

      this is a fantastic work of almost lyrical art, one of the best poems that I have read in a long time.

      Oh this is beautiful. I've always been fascinated with Van Gogh and his life. This seems as if it perfectly personifies his mad brilliance.
