"A Picture of a Thousand Words"
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.
