paint it

cross the abyss, make it
nothing

take my heart and paint it
take my namelessness
       my namelessness and carve
your mark in it

give this rough wood your,
       spread on it the damask perfection of your
careful words
show this mockup an example of your expensive feathers
give this metal-thief your,
       all your
rags,
your rags to shiver in

give this iceheart your rags to shiver in
give this silent horn a hollow place to cower in
give this emergent mess a useless mask to pose in

give this lockstockpile a lovesong to live in
give this onceteen a fantasy to drift in
give this dreamer a medium to dream in

paint it

cross the abyss, make it
nothing

What do you think?
