Picasso of My Heart

A Poem by FlatLineBeauty

I want to scream my feelings

Wishing my thoughts would make sense

Years of uncare creating a hard shell

I tried to open myself to you

To put my heart out in insecure places

Handing you my trust you'd handle with care

I keep hoping you'll be the one

Waking me from this life of seclusion

Teaching me to learn to trust again

I don't want to be alone anymore

But everytime I try to connect fear builds

Running in retreat, not wanting to be burned

I always had an ideal vision of my dreams

You fulfill my dreams and make me happy

But you twist that vision to something I never imagined

I've never in my life felt so much love 

At the same time I have never been so afraid to break

To lose someone who created beautiful chaos

I fall for you every day over again

Each day a new and deeper love stronger than before

Daily you challenge and shake up my ideals

I view you as a beautiful artist in my life

You became my adored muse painting with my feelings

Taking my brush and distorting my canvas in wonderous ways

I have never felt so vulnerable and free

Emphasising and having me examine my thoughts and feelings

Make my colors speak...

Picasso of my heart

You feed my starving artist appetite

I love devouring the pleasure and pain

I love how you take the relevant and create something extraordinary. You can see the internal struggle and passion the author has to endure and emit to feed her desire to be art and to create art. You truly do make colors speak in this piece. You are vibrant and talented and I'm always going to be a fan. Sometimes we take shape in the words we write and your shape is as beautiful as the words you inspire with.

You have captured well the pleasure of the artist's touch and the brush of his hand... at the same time as expressing that sense of foreboding and the ache of loss that characterizes so many relationships... I hope the pleasure will last...
