My custom-made mythologies
My unspoken apologies
My put-on happiness
My cloak of fanciness
My pre-packed suitcase
My unworn lace
Everything to make you see
the world I paint with what you gave to me

I’m the picture in your frame
painted with your signs
the illustration to your lines
bearing your name

I’m the way you described me
a character in your book
living only when you look
following a plot that I can’t see

I think with your mind
see through your eyes
breathe your sighs
in a world where I’m blind

You see, I keep thinking there must be something I could do
but the storm chased my horses far away
left me in a pale vastness with nothing to say
and I wish I could leave it to you
