THE SCREAM

THE SCREAM

A Poem by kublakhan27
"

07 27 02

"
A stroke of sunset
from a sure dissector of the soul
gripped and froze a face
for eternity

Poor soul
singled out
desperate to save his ears
from the desperation of the landscape

Sentenced by the brush
to demonstrate dexterity
of blood
and tongues of fire
to the audience of eternity

If only the water
was within his wilting reach
or a tide of intuition swelled up
with cool donation

Rill or wave
any spill could snap him
out of solitary seizure
yet he is doomed
to listlessness
and sickness instead
the go-to of a landscape
in despair

The scream has taxed its owner
lungs have ruled his face and senses
since the lurking silhouettes
left him at the landscape
the desperate landscape

The sky for eternity
bathes in blood
extracted from his face
now pale and tired
and drained

Author's Note

kublakhan27
Inspired by that famous Munch painting...another one I've been sitting on for several years but felt compelled to bring out at this time in light of recent events...

"I was walking along the road with two friends - watching the sunset - the sky suddenly turned red as blood - I stopped, leant against the fence, deadly tired - avove the blue-black fjord and the town lay blood and tongues of fire - my friends walked on and I was left, trembling with fear - and I could feel an infinte scream passing through the landscape" - EM

First...I know I know, I've been scarce and I apologize for that...busy little bee, but still no excuse for neglecting my friends...I have a whole lot of time for which I need to make up.

Second...holy cats, dude ;-) I love that painting, always have. I believe a lot of people do, but not one of us, I am fairly certain, could have ever given it as much due as you have done so here. This is a stunning work inspired by, well, let's face it, a stunning work. To anyone who has never seen this magnificent painting, just reading about it from your pen would most assuredly be enough for them to paint the image in their own minds...you, my friend, rock.

Superior write. Stop hogging them all to yourself and share ;-)

Paintings are much like poetry, open for interpretation, and this one in particular is dark, yet intriguing. You have captured the images very well through your words, clearly showing the deep, hidden meaning behind this work of art. Job well done.

Edvard Munch, one of my favourite artists who's best paintings were fueled by his mania. i have my own version of The Scream in my photos on here, i did it in biro and it works well. A great description of a great painting by a great artist..

Thank you Moon for your support as always :)
This a great written piece of distinctive imagery backed by emphatic overtones well worth a second, third, fourth or more reads if you're thirsty enough to indulge in the overall theme frequently. Great write here. :)

This is definitely one of my more personal writes...many thanks my friend :)
Eeerie!...Sounds like he is having a bad day! lol

Truth be told I read the tags first to see what the topic was about.. and LOL "munch" stuck out like a sore thumb... I laughed my arse off!...I thought to myself, "this is gonna be something else, where does "munch" fit into this equation?" lol (you always throw something crazy into the mix) ;D

Then I read your author's note explaining the painting, so now I get it (Thanks) I need to study paintings more. ;P

This was intriguing...You did not disappoint!...

"Sentenced by the brush

of blood
and tongues of fire

Funny, Steve....I`ve only seen the painting in print and on telly, but though anything I`ve read or heard about it seemed, for the main part, to centre on the personal, my own unqualified reaction, albeit superficial, has been that it more represented the disenfranchised and helpless....and was therefore more a political statement. In any case, you`ve written a word-picture worthy of hanging in tandem with it, mate. P.
