Contemporary Art

Poem By Tex T Sarnie

A picture on display
brought utter dismay.
Why choose such a place
to hang an utter disgrace?

Unfit for adult or child,
it could drive people wild!
Influence all mankind
and corrupt the mind!

Though no one knows
what it means or shows,
it is quite obvious to me
what a blank canvas should be.

Comments about Contemporary Art

An insightful bit of verse nicely embellished with poetic rhyme and rhythm.
Yes, some modern art is not really art to me. Was Pablo Picasso a genius or just dyslexic? What do you think?
I also fully agree with this poet's idea about contemporary art. Just splash a bottle of ink over a canvass and it becomes an art of great symbol and philosophy. There will always be a ready made group to clap, appreciate and dissect the art as a marvel of symbolism. It seems that all the Medieval artists and painters rather wasted their life in the eyes of these so called group of intellects! The advocates of Post modernism in all forms of arts and literature are rather dragging the true sense of art and literature into real pitfalls.

True Love But Painful

I know about all your faults and silly idiosyncrasies,
but I accept them because I love you.
I know you love yourself more than you love anyone else
and think that you are God's gift, but I still love you.

I Miss You

Are you sitting by the fire in your favourite armchair?
Are your eyes tightly closed imagining that I'm there?
Are your fingers running through your hair like I used to do?
Is your memory taking you back to the way I used to love you?

I Need Help

Who is going to help me when my mind
crosses over to the dark side again?
I need someone who can help and guide me
to escape this horrific frightening pain.

Returning Home

On a warm midsummer evening I was returning home.
A light breeze wafted through the Jasmine filled air,
which made the early hours walk more pleasurable
whilst the new moon brought brightness to everywhere.

Inner Demons

As far as I can remember
I never experienced demons as a child.
I think they began at the age of puberty,
and ever since they've driven me wild.

A Balanced Love

I want you to love me
as much as I love you.

So we can be as one,
