Paint me as you please

March 27, 2008
By Tigger Geeters, Helena, AL

A blank canvas is my body and face
Draw what you want
Paint me as you please
Don’t hold back your anger
Stab me in reds, oranges, and yellows
Drown me in purples, greens, and blues
Don’t hold back your sorrow
Let your emotions run off my edges
For that’s why I’m here, to take all your pain
Inflict me with your pain
Give me your words of drunken nothing
For I am nothing but an empty canvas
With no emotions of my own
I’ll be glad to take your pain and make it mine
