Art Man

by Violet P. Davies 4 months ago in art

I genuinely can't remember who this poem is about

Art Man

It seems that my saliva’s been misplaced

So now my throat is dry

And my lips are cracked

And I don’t mind, but I mind

.

You spoke with a clumsy tongue

And you didn’t speak the foreign ones that spoke to me

Everything hung heavy in your mouth

.

But I can fill you with that light I craved now

Though I’ve let you go, the beauty isn’t gone

I can give you music

Since I couldn’t give you love

.

There was no focus

There was no giddy

There was no impetus to stay

No incentive not to stray

.

And I wanted to be good to you

But there’s only so much I can do

When the blood pumping through says let you loose

.

But I can carve you like a statue

Though I’ve let you go, you can stand for something

I can give you music

Since I couldn’t give you love
