The Clown Portrait
“A Poem About A Clown Portrait I Saw In A Dream…”

I had a dream about a mysterious painting…
In my dream, I saw a man painted smiling…
Somehow, I found his expression very intriguing…
The look in his eyes bewildered my reasoning…

 

His face was covered in white paint…
And his eyes surrounded in red paint…
His nose appeared to be a red spot…
And his smile was painted…

 

He seems to be smiling happily…
But in my eyes i see him very dreary…
As though gloom has shrouded his very sanity…
what could he be he thinking so sadly…

 

His eyes seemed to be as though they were in mourning…
As though his happy face was but a mere mask he was wearing…

 

As i gazed more upon this portrait…
I felt sad and very lonely…
As though I had just been part of a sad and awful tragedy…
What could have been his story…

 

I wonder intently…
Pondering deeply…
With the Clown Portrait that seemed to be overflowing with mystery and tragedy…
With the Clown Portrait that seemed ever so sad yet ever so happy…

 

I woke bewildered and dreary…
What was that about I wondered sincerely…
Then it suddenly came to me…
Was I the clown with a smiling frown..?

 

This painting is closest to what I saw in that dream…
