Painter

You don’t know the thoughts of a painter until you’ve dissected his masterpiece.

You don’t understand the process behind each stroke or how every scenery has a tale that you skipped past.

 

Art looks beautiful, yes, it’s true.

But, there’s a cost to every beauty mark,

my mother used to tell me crazy tales- she once told me that our birthmarks…?

That’s how you died in the previous life.

 

You don’t get a life without little pain,

you don’t get a love without little hurt,

you don’t catch feelings without a little rip.

 

Every time you hand that heart out…

know that you won’t always get closure,

life is full of shock therapy,

I just didn’t expect you to be a part of my insanity.

 

That painter is the writer.
