Avenue of my body!


You pick up your brush
since gave up his words
and draws a line
and says that I am

I'm a bit more than that
2 dashes already enough

I take your hands
and gently paint some words
you no longer understands
then I paint my picture

I'm a bit more than that
2 dashes not enough

then, by drawing on me
which carbon paper
to see if you remember
Who I Am

I'm a bit more than that
a silhouette is not enough

A ghost you say
want something more solid?
open your hands
black ink seeping through his fingers

I'm a bit more than that
invisible ink and so thin

Black and white
really try scribble my Body
So I am
The pale line again

    These things you say of beauty
    In truth it's spoke not of her
    but of needs unsalted,

    Beauty is not a need
    But an ecstasy
    A thirsting however quenched

    Pale lines drawn dark
    Dark line fading to pale
    Speak not the image

    That image can often lie
    Think more of the being with-in
    Her heart, her soul is more than the whole

    In case you didn't know when you write inspirational words I get inspired... hope you do not mind (Report) Reply

    So hauntingly beautiful, Images that cannot be simpler I am unable to grasp.
    Meanings that are as easily to see as fog, but impossible to touch.
    Leaves me in awe. (Report) Reply
