I paint, and I love to paint the emotions inside the model, in black and white.

I took you in and held you tight, 
I danced into your soul,
And took the rope you balanced on, 
Dislodged your self-control,

To pull apart your shattered heart, 
Rebuild your classic pose,
And paint the lust inside your mind, 
Underneath the clothes,

For me, I had to fuel my pain, 
I had to feel what I had broke,
To create a world that I had lost, 
With every painful stroke,

So I built you up then tore you down, 
I played with what you are,
I captured, on canvas, the truth to you, 
Your hurt, your rent, your scar.
