"A Picture of a Thousand Words"

Updated on August 23, 2017

If I could paint a picture of a thousand words for you,
I would start with love.
Love would be the first word
to envision upon my canvas.
Love and beauty and kindness and strength.
Romance and sweet nothings and my body going weak,
craving your touch...

The next word would be for your smile,
how radiant and lovely and joyous it can be.
How you keep me laughing and joking and playing around.
You keep me feeling so comfortably.
You keep me feeling so happy.

Then I would paint of your lips,
how soft and delicious, everytime we kiss.
And your eyes! How they glitter and shine.
How they light up when you look at me.
How they see right through me.
How they sleep so peacefully and dream of me.

I would paint your dreams,
all over this white canvas,
Paint it the colors of your heart and soul.
I would paint your thoughts with hues of red and blue and green.
I would paint it all.

Even your moments of sadness and defeat,
when your broken down and alone.
If I could paint every part of you
and set it in stone,
I would paint the world for you,
I would paint thousands of words for you,

But I can not paint,
I can only write,
so I write this poem for you.
I write each word for you.
The good, the bad,
I write it all because
its all a part of you.

I dont want to leave anything out.

      Hey Nikki.

      This is a beautiful peace of your LOVE put into words. I must say i'm glad you can't paint because i don't think a painting would give me the same feeling as your words of love.

      I close my eyes and have this wonderful feeling that you are saying this beautful love poem just to me.

      Beautiful,awsome,and a big UP.

      Ah JL I will check it out, and it will never bother me if i can inspire you then that is great. Thats partly why i write. to reach others and relate to them and inspire them and help them through something similar. let them know they are not alone that others feel the same way. give them hope and show them the inner parts of me.

      Blaise, astra, and Twilight. thanks so much for the comments, I know I'm getting them late. I dont like Hubpages new way of notifications, and I dont get everything. blah. Im glad this could paint a picture for you blaise and astra, magic is in all of us! Twilight, im glad this could bring you some peace. Thanks so much!

      I did. It is called,"A love in the art of words". I am starting to question how reading your words always moves me, but I am not a thinking writer, I only feel so I will just go with it and hope that if it ever bothers you you'll let me know.

      Beautiful words Nikki. I feel you paint words very very beautifully. Thank you again for a reason to write. Blessed be...


      Each whisper made on the winds of life,

      images only spoken by love's desire.

      Tears pouring out of blind eyes,

      temptation rising in lust's fire.

      Eyes crying out.

      Out of a dream I see.

      See the flames of our heart.

      Heart singing words of love.

      There has been only visions of light,

      beyond the shadows I wanted to see.

      Love in my soul burning inside,

      where love has always been a part of me.

      How you see me.

      Me becoming this vision.

      Vision blinded by fate.

      Fate understanding love.

      When I close my eyes and try to find,

      the reasons for a love so true.

      Dreams speak to a breking heart of mine,

      seeing the reasons I fell in love with you.

      Hold me close like before.

      Before the shadows said goodbye.

      Goodbye my love sweet dreams.

      Dreams of life and love coming true.

      I cry before you on my knees,

      hoping when you look inside you know.

      My heart is yours to believe,

      in this painting of words I now show.

      Come with me take my hand.

      Hand on sands breaking shore.

      Shore of destiny twisting fate.

      Where the only game we play is for love.
