Our Skin

Our Skin

A Poem by KeeD
"

Just a poem for someone who inspires me

"
The Chair
It sits there
Awaiting my presence

The Artist 
He looks at my canvas
With perceptive eyes 

The Body
Pale like snow 
Ink would make you glow

The Detail
Eyes so deep 
The needle lost in time

Blood Rush
Red with the needles touch
Cheeks blush with pain and pleasure

The Session
Long hours of severe pain
Artistic gain all in your name

The Tattoo
A portrait of you
The description of your beautiful face

The Message
Forever within
A constant reminder of what has been

and

what's to come

Poetic Love
&
Appreciation

I'm a canvas and you my inspiration

A piece on someone who has poetically inspired me.
Ink is permanent, think of it as a landlord always at your door knocking for rent. If it's pretty you don't mind. If it's a mistake like a one night stand on your behind, God help you find an explanation out of that one. :P

This is how I feel every time I get inked. Some display their art pieces on their walls. I on the other hand display it on my skin. Absolutely beautiful take on the entire process. I constantly ache for the intimate feeling between artist and canvass. Thank you for sharing. :D

This was a very beautiful piece. I think it would have been a wee bit better if each had it's own side note like you have on 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. It was almost like you just randomly decided to add it. It works, but I would change that up a bit.

Good job with this poem. It was beautiful.

This is very cleverly written, true profession.
Such simple things make it so complicated, this could relate to everyone in many ways. I enjoyed this very much, keep up the great work.

I really like that this is littered with clues but just cryptic enough to leave me wondering. They are like little fragmented thoughts that build a bigger picture. Small pieces of pretty things. Whoever inspired, I think this would be a lovely tribute.

Nicely done, Kee.

Wonder who it was... Nice btw:) In fact, I do believe I love it:) I especially love how you use the color in the poem to highlight the lines that were like titles of the moments to make them really stand out:) Great work Keegan!!!!!!!!
