I Would Paint You

Jacy has been writing for over a decade as a hobby. Now she's trying to put more focus toward it as a career.

Deep violet

Over pale cream

Edged with sickly yellow

And lurid green

The canvas of your skin

Marred by shades of

Violence and hate

I would paint you

With cool shades of tranquility

With warm shades of love

I would paint your limbs

With evidence of your beauty

Affirmation

That you deserve adoration

I would paint you

With the flame of life

Burning bright

If only

You would let me
