The Artist

Form: Free Verse

The feelings are mine in a stroke of a brush
a thousand words hidden in fine lines
an image that says nothing in its stillness
yet reveals everything in its silence
where graphite marks paper there is only truth
and my muse stands still
whilst my hand follows my eye
from his smile
capturing every line
and we talk as the picture grows
everyday conversation
in the creation of art
the softening lines desiring success
but I am still guilty
of wanting his love
