If I Was a Painter

A Poem

By A. NicolePublished 7 years ago 1 min read

If I was a painter

I would paint my memory

Illuminate the canvas

Different hues of you and me

I'd paint the sky above us

Stars aligning with each other

Evoke the metaphor of

Our bond with one another

Imagery, us together

In the middle of nowhere

With closed eyes, imagine

The brush strokes take me there

I'd portray your essence

Colors in a bright array

Our passion in portrait

Forever on display

I'd complete the picture

Take a step back to admire

Examine the acrylic

That depicted my desire

If I was a painter

I could capture me and you

Because I am no artist

Memories will have to do.

– A. Nicole
