TAKE A SHOT FROM THERE

Take a pure shot from where you stand
and print me just the way I am

with no added colour of admiration, 
3D effects of willingness, 
or glossy prints of encouraging stimulus
	
For where I stand,
has no milky waterfalls, nor honey forestry
but
Silky anger and honey foretaste of the sweet stress that lies ahead,
coated with muddy sand and dry season

Take a pure shot from where you stand
Please, don’t add rainbow gestures to the picture
because it’s been a while I have seen nor said hello to the vivid rainbow

This is because 
the eyeglass of the lively rainbow is cracked 

So it can’t see me either, 
this has swallowed It’s speech 
and rendered it, 
emotionally heartless 

I don’t blame nor judge its sudden lippy disrespect
for I know, 
it doesn’t want to damage further,
blench or bleach itself into my loopy shoes

Take a pure shot from where you stand
Please, don’t print me in coloured
because I am left in a monochrome mood
wondering in an unrealized lessened globe
 
Take a pure shot from where you stand
don’t take the shot with the camera flash light
so that you shall have a real feel of  the darkened purity, 
which possesses the surrounding of where I accusingly pose  

Don’t conclude my picture
or exclusively judge me as a loser

For I am not!

If you think I am,
try posing a second in my picture,
while I take the picture from where you stand

    A beautiful passionate verse...I won't take your picture today but I'll remember your words which are worth a thousand pictures. They teased my senses. C. Alvez
