By
   The Artist

I find him,
Buried alive in a chest of silence.
My presence eludes him.
He sits,
Tranquil,
Enveloped in an icy cold.
Entering into his realm,
I am immediately consumed by flames.
His hand weeps,
And I gratefully swallow its tears.
Out of Tragedy -
Beauty.
I mistake his pain for genius.
