Paint me a picture.

Sweet Dreams

Paint me a pretty picture. One with warm weather and smiles. One where flowers bloom and last years. Paint me a picture of a house with us in it. A house with a porch that wraps around the frame. Where lemonade is the best solution to cool down on a hot day. Paint me a picture where you come home to me. Smiling and happy to be there. Paint me a picture where you can take me in your arms and make me feel safer than I've ever felt. Paint me a picture.

Paint me a pretty picture where you say all the words I need to hear. Paint me a picture where our lives are not separated by commitments. Paint me a picture.

Paint me a picture where we travel together, stealing kisses everywhere we go. Paint me a picture where I didn't let you slip through loose fingers so long ago. Paint me a picture.

I want one where this ends differently. Where we are happy and thriving. Paint me a picture where every stroke of the brush brings your heart closer to mine. Paint me a picture.

Paint me a picture that gives us a family, one I never thought I'd have. Paint me a picture where I don't have to scrawl messages on bottles and drop them into the sea hoping that somehow, they'll reach you. Paint me a picture where there is no ocean between us at all.

Paint me a picture where all the time doesn't go to waste. Paint me a picture where memories don't haunt me. Paint me a picture where I run my fingers down your chest and kiss your lips.

Paint me a picture that is vibrant and full of life. Paint me a picture even Picasso would rival. Paint me a picture of the sweet dreams you sell me.

Paint me a picture of your smile when you lay eyes on me. Paint me a picture of love and of tender moments.

Please, won’t you paint me a pretty picture.

One where I can tell you I love you and not feel guilty. Paint me a picture where our good moments aren’t just epigraphs in my mind. Paint me a picture where I don't have to look through a projector. Paint me a picture where I don’t have to replace the slides. Paint me a picture people only dream about.

Paint me a picture of everything I know you are. Paint me a picture. Take your time. Paint detail, paint emotion, paint our struggles and our faults. Paint me a picture where I say I do. Paint me a picture where you say it back.

Paint me a picture.

Paint me a picture where we can forget all the infidelity. Paint me a picture where we can forget the pain we caused. Paint me a picture of heaven with you in it. Because lord knows it isn’t heaven without you. Paint me a picture of blues, reds, and yellows. Paint me a picture of vibrancy.

Paint me a picture where I tell you all about my day. Paint me a picture where I cook for you every morning. Paint me a picture of good morning kisses. Paint me a picture of the ones at the end of the night. Paint me a picture of family and no regret. Paint me a picture where dreams become reality.

Just paint me a picture darlin'.

Paint me a picture where we forget all the wrong choices. Paint me a picture of when we first met. Paint me a picture of my flaws. Paint me a picture of yours. Paint me a picture of the future you see. Paint me a picture of the future you want.

Paint me a picture where I don’t have to let go.

Please, just paint me a pretty picture.
