Canvas of Light – Dan Leicht @Deeliopunk #Poetry

eyes wrenching

staring blindly into the canvas of light

trying to create something within the madness

hoping something manifests…something raw, powerful

something unique

a shot of liquor may dull the world away

other remedies might even be quicker

but the eyes stay open as the aroma lingers throughout the small apartment

the black sand blended with scolding heat

a red mug filled to the brim with the thick liquid

grainy in taste

lively as it repels the affliction of night

the poet barely resting his eyes focused on the lit screen

fighting the urge of night to focus on what truly matters

what truly thrives the poet’s dreams

wide awake staring into the canvas of light
