I splash a little paint

in every corner,

make them curtains

so I might be able to see you

in the windows.


I swirl the drops together

hoping they spend everything on this page

to make some kind of music

you might like.


I try to fix every spot

that ends up showing

when the blue bleeds down my clothes

but I will never be able to cover it all

so I paint you on in lipstick stains

and hope it doesn’t fade.


I spin every color

and I still can’t find you

in the masterpiece

I am so bad at descriptions.


I curve your name

with my fingertips

onto the flawless white…

someone else might have left it alone

but it is better now.
