Personal (Hope)

Like an artist 

uses a paintbrush 

to create a picture 

so do I with my pen.


The extended metaphor 

is the medium;

the colors I use 

are descriptive words;


Feelings and thoughts

have consumed me

until they become 

hues spilled on the canvas.


The final masterpiece 

is more than just 

the resulting poem;

it's the emotion felt by the reader.
