Read me

Seems a little unfair
that I get to taste your words
swim in your mind and see
speckled thoughts fly on by
colorful memories of your world
in plain sight

If I’m this far in
seems a little unfair that you’d think
I’m intruding in

Perhaps you’re scared
I’m the only one that can see
The difference in the words
that you pick versus the ones
Everyone else is comfortable with

Painted a picture for all to see
But the colors you chose
Say everything about you to me

Applause in the end
For the artist that likes to create
Is for the most part only
As fulfilling as fans pleasantries
that for the time being
fill the void the words try to describe

Failing, but to only a few,
Who, like me, see the difference
In the words you picked and the breaths in between

So welcome me in
Let me read what pulses underneath
You’ve got the black ink
Circling around each memory
Let the truth pour on to the page

Rest assured that what most don’t get
Is visible in the darkness
Where I don’t rest
Where most are afraid to get
Too vapid and set in their own ways
Unable to explore beyond
what’s behind the first door

But here I am
Entering the room
you’ve double pad locked
To hand you the key to my thoughts

The ones in blue ink
Hidden in drawers so deep
Forgotten but for moments
when I let my mind think

And if I’m already here
Watching the drops of ink pool
While you watch me
I might as well make you
As comfortable with me as
I wish I could be with
my most inner themes
