Pictures of You

 

My mind paints

the very first time

we met,

over and over.

Sketches out

a turbulent romance,

trying to catch the fire.

 

Street art,

graffiti,

meet classical techniques

as I try

to depict

our intertwining fates.

 

Digital,

mixed media,

vie to be a token

of the good times

and the bad.

 

No medium between

who we have been

and who we are now.

Captured in an AI rendering;

not hope,

not love,

not desperation.

 

The way oils

need the canvas,

or watercolor,

the paper,

or tattoo ink,

the skin,

we have become

some inextricable expression.

 

You and I;

photographs,

and memes.

Just two

and this whole life

a scene.

 

Thought perfected

with you

as my muse,

filling my mind’s eye

with images

and pictures

of you.
