    We sought to create a handicraft
    of expression unconditional.
    A Monet of understanding and
    Rembrandt bold impasto of achievement.
    Your impressionism intrigued me
    and your short stroked anger
    was never a misunderstood faction.
    We prepared for the endurance
    of a starving artist’s gift as I bought
    every tincture of emotion known to man
    Smocked my brawny pride and
    covered the floors of my center for protection.
    We placed bitter thoughts in a sieve
    Only to be retrieved
    once again in the near future.
    Waited with breath baited
    For your stroke of genius to maneuver
    Wield and build upon my waiting canvas
    You provided the young encouragement of Pisarro
    Laughing with vigor at my surreal attempts to control
    linking my efforts at romance to Dali.
    I dreamed in creation Michelangelo
    And saw the tip of your finger connect with God
    as you explained my “Enchantment”
    with the vitality of Renoir.
    My Temple was your muse .
    My Mind was an overused brush.
    Often you were interested only in uses
    of the obelisk in between your thighs and
    “The Embrace” of our Picasso
    In contrast to the importance
    Of this “Woman Reading.”
    Copulation seemed to be your diva
    A goddess called sex was
    your only outlet and inspiration.
    You could have long stroked a still life
    To the many tears I cried
    As we sunk to the level of passionate finger paints
    Much like a kindergarten novice.
    We were much too abstract and
    I now understand the light and shadow
    the me and you.
    In newfound cognizance
    No longer can I paint
    Create nor take part in
    A portrait worth a thousands words
    When your effort was not worth
    The one most important:
    LOVE.

    Your composition and use of space was a modern art movement undocumented in history but many speak of it…I hear they call it “Muse”…

    An Art Nouveau vignette of fading water colors and deep linseed oil rubs…
    Thanks for allowing us into your studio…/ The sable strokes you’ve left upon my mind make this peace unforgettable…

    You are one creative poet…from one Artist to another…I’m loving your work! :spinstar:

    Wow...First of all, you used so many facets of art so thoroughly. And then to have put forth all of that effort and not have found love...the way you went about this was extraordinary. Bravo.

    :rolling: thanks so much for the love Everyone. My Muse really 'preciates that :).

    Watzinaname....thank you for reading and commenting. This piece was meant to convey exactly what you got from it. Love is work...Love is art...and sometimes the pieces that come forth from relationships really aint worth the time and effort put in. None the less all art is beautiful and always considered a lesson learned.

    Angelicsage....girl you write poetry each time you type. Every comment I see from you on the boards is lovely and tasteful You are a Muse :). Thanks so much. That love went straight to mi corazon.

    1greaterthan...Wow! No you didnt say that lol. Thanks so much , I am so glad you felt my expression.

    MzBlack...Preciate you coming through sis. Glad you vibed

    Rich....Hey bro thanks...this is the more serious side of me. I'm actually whimsical and humorous and you guys shall see more. Thanks for feeling me in this zone.

    blessins'

    my goodness...a collage of art...
    rippling together... I can see why
    the difficulty in the LOVE...
    I felt like the Munch painting of Scream which
    just got stolen from the museum
    my hands on my face , my mouth and eyes wide open
    screaming My Goodness.

    the poet is flowing rivers of paints
