A Painter Not A Faker

A Painter Not A Faker


I have graduated this time

To be a painter

Not a faker

 

Immersed in the work

It engulfs me

Its toxic fumes

Purify my mind

Render my heart empty

Of emotion

 

It takes all of me

Dissolves me

Absolves me

From my pain

This is not a game

This is me

Reaching the best I can into the heart

This is my art.
