The Portrait

I am a symphony, composed in shades of laughter and love.

Your voice is a fairy-tale flutist that serenades whispers into fireworks,

Your voice is a fairy-tale flutist that serenades whispers into fireworks, spilling colours like rainbows pouring into the meadow and stars sketching the cosmos.

From that paint puddle comes brushstrokes of butterflies,

From that paint puddle comes brushstrokes of butterflies, racing at a hundred heartbeats per second in pastel pleasures.

Sweeter than honey,

Sweeter than honey, happier than the horizon closing its curtains,

Sweeter than honey, happier than the horizon closing its curtains, you dye my dreams in a chorus of fireflies swirling in citrine celebration.

It whirls like trimmed ribbons twirling in the twilight,

It whirls like trimmed ribbons twirling in the twilight, a portrait polka-dotted with daisy and dewed neon like a hush of lush summertime.

It’s all washed in your warmth that yawns caresses like yarn,

It’s all washed in your warmth that yawns caresses like yarn, cradles kisses that hum harmonies of jubilance and joy in a jukebox of smiles.

You dazzle the day, stun the stardust with your art.

Yet this impossible image illuminates my puzzle-pieces like a dear dawn,

Yet this impossible image illuminates my puzzle-pieces like a dear dawn, held by the painters, singers, writers, lovers, and friends of my life.

Yet this impossible image illuminates my puzzle-pieces like a dear dawn, held by the painters, singers, writers, lovers, and friends of my life. A trillion memories glittering onto a canvas.

I am a symphony, a mosaic of you.

(Aside) So, I decided to write again! This piece came from an impulse to write, after reading A Christmas Carol for English class, and a conversation with a friend yesterday.

It is about how everyone contributes to creating the 'art' of someone, and I wanted to capture that in a more positive and jubilant manner. I hope this piece came across that way, as I wanted to create something that feels like my older pieces, once again!

I also hope that the language was simple -- the piece itself wasn't too difficult to write. Also, just so this piece doesn't seem self-indulgent, it's applicable to pretty much all of us. You are all art! :D

Thank you all for reading, and take care! Keep on writing, and take care, all! Lots of love going your way from me! <3 (Also, I have been doing a bit better lately. For now, at least)
