Vincent


By Liam Flanagan

So neglected in your life even now people struggle to pronounce your name
Tortured you were turning to alcohol to ease the pain
Relief found from painting nature and flowers
Finding inspiration from roses/lilacs/lilies and sunflowers
Whilst engaged in a constant battle with an illness which refused to allow sunshine into the mind
You must have been living in a world more identifiable as hell
Cut ones ear off to quieten the incessant noise disturbing the self
Rest easy knowing a legacy of beauty and genius has been left
A life so short leaving us behind thirty seven years old
