Paint a Portrait
By Andrew “Andeh” C. Shaw
What is a feeling that explains this view?
How can you explain this, is this true?
I am falling, falling for you
A veil is lifted and I hope it’s anew
Paint a portrait above the clouds.
If I really want it, I will scream it out loud.
I can feel beyond what one can feel
New to this world I believe it is real.
I am flying, in all that blue.
The sun is rising, I hope it brings you.
Paint a portrait bringing a sound
Showing the world that I am not bound.
Reading a letter that is unsigned,
Am I falling for no one, am I going blind?
I am living, living anew.
The air of spring morning, I smell it too.
Paint a portrait of a man astound
Artist’s best moment he’s ever found.
Paint me a portrait that shows me I am free,
I want to learn more about what I can be.
Paint me a portrait of a feeling that I seem to see.
Tell me this is real, and this life, is not a dream.
