Painting

Day and night, tireless work

Day and night, tireless work desperate strokes, not keeping pace

This ever-changing work keeps me on my toes

This ever-changing work keeps me on my toes A painting with impatient figures

This ever-changing work keeps me on my toes A painting with impatient figures anxious to shift and dance like an elegant ocean.

Never finished, it demands time like a restless child

Never finished, it demands time like a restless child and always a perfectionist, I fuss over its flaws

until obsession consumes my gaze

and the gorgeous works of all I have ever done

and the gorgeous works of all I have ever done begin to crumble and peel with neglect.

I wish for a blank canvas of white

I wish for a blank canvas of white and wish for the mess I have made

I wish for a blank canvas of white and wish for the mess I have made to never have existed and be lost to obscurity.

The brushes discarded on the ground

The brushes discarded on the ground cry their tears of red and blue.

The brushes discarded on the ground cry their tears of red and blue. willing me, can't I see

haven't I come this far?

A lifetime it takes for me to believe

A lifetime it takes for me to believe that beauty can be found

A lifetime it takes for me to believe that beauty can be found In places my stubborn mind can't see

The remnants of silhouettes long faded and brushed over

The remnants of silhouettes long faded and brushed over The splinters in the frame and scratches on the canvas

such stories these scars of the past can tell

such stories these scars of the past can tell and perseverance tells its own.

My work is never to be done,

My work is never to be done, and never to be perfect

My painting is my history,

and I'll take my time with it.
