Chance favors the prepared mind.


The silver paintbrush glints in the moonlight
As it runs along it's skin canvas.
The crimson paint leaks out.

The artist gasps
Watching her artwork
Embracing the pain it brings

The paintbrush hits the floor
As the artist takes her final breath
Her pain fades away as does the the red paint
In the rain

I have been going through some tough things with my family and this piece was a good way for me to vent. I ended up really liking the piece and the imagery.

Kaylee- I'm honored that you would include me in your readership.  This week is unbelievably over-booked, and I really want to read your work when I have time to sit and reflect.   Stay tuned.... I'll read and reply, I PROMISE!
