My Brush

don’t go
Not until after the show
Stay and wait…with me
See what I have to say

And ill say it with my body
A dark canvas 
Of paint and blood

You’re my brush
Soft to the touch
My only crutch 

You’re my brush 

So as you stroke up and down this canvas 
Do me a favor
Brush away my pain 
Memories cannot sustain me 

Life is nothing more but memories 
You paint so softly and you tell me
Remember the good times don’t forget the bad
Put on a smile it’ll block out your troubles 

Be my little girl forever

But you’re my brush
Dipped in all my favorite colors  
Of worldly knowledge 

And I wont flinch to mess your picture up now
