Fight for Art

She was an artist with a thirst for magenta,
bound by the brush and rich hues painting 
the same way her mother painted on her
feet paying her dues.
Give her the brush, rags and linseed or 
she'll faint or suffocate with out the cool 
feel of fresh oil on her hands working it 
like a jewel.
Her subjects the inbuilt feelings of life 
calling to every cell that stirs. Built in 
power to personify time calling a beacon
of hope to every bone that stirs, wrangling
every breath gone cool. Light lives to touch 
her eyes when there is no other way to 
find perfection, it is a gift of her soul
fighting for art sake.
