the artist’s painting (freeverse)

we live in the contrasts
right in the middle 
between two tides
sprawling the colors 
on the canvas 

a bluish hue 
golden yellows
the traces of my melancholy 

such wonder, such brightness 
these feelings 
they don't escape me
they hold a heavy gravity 
greys and blacks filled in,
in these contrasts
the artist paints the picture

a deep violet
vibrant reds
the traces of my happiness

for all of this 
i surrender 
to the life 
within the colors
and the tides 
of contrast
