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 and
death 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, without it this gift of her
souls fight for art.
