paint

I am a lover of paint,

of covering white canvases with

beautiful rich blues

yellows greens and

reds and purples.

I am a lover of paint,

letting lines swirl

and dance amongst the

walls, riddling out stories

and sweet lyrics, giggling

as the blue twirls with the

yellow to become

a lovely shade of green.

I am a lover of paint,

of covering the pain, of

covering the nothingness

with some bright colors

and laughter, of dashing

smiles across walls that

once frowned.

I am a lover of paint,

a lover of retelling a

story, of a fresh start, of

inhaling the fumes and

closing my eyes, and

opening them to find

a new world, a new

color, the way

a magician waves

his hand, and pulls

a rabbit from the hat.
