van Gogh

we sat holding hands
in the art gallery
staring at CÚzanne's piled skulls
we were lovers
were we in love
only time would tell
and it did
I left the city of water
and headed for Amsterdam
to see the madness of van Gogh
I sat there realizing
you cannot argue with the Devil

Ah, indeed! I however lived within the madness of Van Gogh and ventured out into the light of CÚzanne. I came back to the comfort of the shadows of bright screaming flowers...

There is so much to unwrap in this powerful poem!

I keep coming back to this. You've struck a familiar chord here, and the writing seems effortless.
