I Would Try

June 14, 2009
If you wanted,
I could paint for you
A picture
In bright acrylics,
If you wanted watercolors,
I could try.

If you wanted,
I could paint it
On the side of a building
To fit all the emotions
If you wanted it in a locket
You could wear,
I could try.

If you wanted,
I could use every color
I find and then
Make even more
If you wanted it in
Well, I could try.

If you wanted
I could spend my life
Painting your picture
Until the day I died
Of exhaustion.
If you wanted,
Me to do it
In an hour,
I would try.

If you needed,
I would love you
If you needed,
I could love you
Only for a minute.
Or at least, I would try.

I don’t think I could,
I would try.

Aw, this is so sweet! It's written in a light move, but it still has a secret meaning of passion behind it! Alright dude!
