The Artist

by Ellie (writer), , October 10, 2011

a poem inspired by an abstract artist who always has such wonderful titles for his pieces

The Artist

Hands that create beauty touch my skin
Eyes that view beauty see me
A mouth which speaks of love covers my own
Breathe deeply, sigh quietly and love me.

Keep me from wakefulness with your words
and hold me from weakness with your arms
Take me from ordinary to extraordinary
and carry me with you not forever
just for now.
