Contemn – sonnet with art

Contemn – sonnet with art

There were thoughts exchanged between myself and a friend on the art. What does the art say. The friend and myself were in the same thought passage on what the art was saying. Friend was a few doorways ahead but in the same passage.

Many thanks to my friend for the input. Very much appreciated!

There was also an exchange of thoughts on music. I sent along what I hear when I look at the piece and my friend sent back what they heard. Those pieces of music are at the end.

I call the art, “Eyes On Fire”. The piece was done late 1990’s.




Old familiar music comes muffled through apartment door
New smile takes shape upon vermilion tinted lips
Way made from door to where from the music slips
One step, heel follows toe, dancing the corridor floor
Melodic way changes rapidly, eyes afire, stupefied mind
Enjoined, enraptured, oblivious to the lost love’s eye
Noticed, sight meets sigh, voice unable to join the eyes that cry
Such a thing to see, impossible to even have considered such a find
Clouded thoughts in concert with battered tortured heart
Overburdened, under slept, burning questions, all answer depart
Running makeup tissued away, a make-up not this or any day
Need in the moment, realization the need is to be forever away
Eyes shed the last tears for remembrances of joy and sorrow
Disdain, last look left behind, smile ahead to the new tomorrow

Contemn: Looking down on with disdain.

What I heard, predominately the first 2:40 of the piece.

What my friend heard looking at the art.
