*to whomever paints it, colors me theirs*

*to whomever paints it, colors me theirs*
by Lee “Bridgett” Harrington

across a dream
crossed by screams
I call for you to ride away from your complacency
Ride the waterways of my body
My veins
Your hands stern but soft would row the way
Along my valley
Past the rapids of my heart
Into the vast ocean of my soul


let me sing your mind
your tongue
paint my sweat upon your brow
bind you in my acrylics
or the lyrics of my life


be my palette
let me brush you across my body
let my skin
tell the tales
of our loving


the roofs here are blood brown
colors of stagnancy in a sunset
sunrise paintbox
we shall paint our house purple red
fuchsia white
and let our children know
all the colors of creation


let me not be watercolor to wash off
let me be your india ink


blending blurring knotting swirling
painting a dream
along the waterways of our life
