is hands
Paint her delicate, bare skin dark colors
The painful brush strokes
Splash ugly marks across her body

She tries to disguise
The acrylic stains
Hide her shame
So others
Don't question about the artist

But eventually
The canvas will mend
And be restored
Time
Will wash away the abusive paint
Leaving the canvas blank
The artist
Anxious to create his next masterpiece

The metaphor was excellent---I was reading a letter to the editor and I decided to check out your piece. All I can write is that while it discusses a sad topic, the poem is beautifully constructed. It is short, direct and straightforward.
