Mirrored Reflection

Giovanni Sonier

Vincent van Gogh, by John Peter Russell-1887 (public domain)

Obfuscated, I see a fellow
bearing bitterly cold eyes –
a blank stare so halfhearted
that light itself is struggling
to contour his sullen brows,
his motionless lips pressed
airily into a thin blue line,
and though I can hear words
whispered under his breath,
the grim intent behind them
is hidden under lock and key,
revealing to me the bony hull
of a man who forfeited hope
by spreading himself too thin,
of a man begging for clarity.
