Paint All of Your Secrets

Copyright 2018 Clary

Can I paint all of your secrets with a waterfall of words?

As you open every window screaming to be heard

As I pull apart the pieces of your badly mangled heart

As I separate the tangled strands that tell me who you are.

Can I wash out all the shades of purple, blue, and red?

Or the tear stained pillows, which lay upon your bed

Let me steal the quiet whispers of my undeserving name

The ones often escaping those lips I’ll never claim

I tore away my portion o f your tapestry of life

Leaving dangling threads and unwanted strife

Unspoken anguish seeps, through you like the rain

Flowing like a poison, running through your veins

You despise the longing feelings that I left upon your skin

The ones there to remind you where my hands and lips have been

So, you couldn’t make me happy and love wasn’t enough,

To fill this void inside of me, to fill my empty cup.

Can I paint all of your secrets with a waterfall of words?

As I regret mistakes I’ve made and all I’ve left unheard

As I walk away and leave you with your badly mangled heart

As I turn my back on everything forsaking who you are.

Hmm! Let's see.I live in Texas born to two human parents (According to my birth certificate) and have three siblings that are nothing like me. I'm an artist and writer. I've lived a lot and learned a lot in my short life and although I lean more towards the pessimistic there is always room to change my sometimes too small tainted heart ;p
