I am an artist; I paint with words.

Beloved, do you see
the blank canvas before me?
Dearest, do you see
the aching sadness within me?
My love, do you see
the spirit I offer to you?
What do you want to see on this paper?
What will cover the vast plain of white?
Would you like a drawing?
I will paint a masterpiece for you of
a girl's and boy's love forever lasting
(but you would throw it out because its color was wrong)
Would you like a poem?
I shall scribe a record of rhyme of
all my feelings of you
(but you would never read it for its title sounded too sad)
Darling, I will give you proof of my love to you
The tragic evidence of my adoration:
I will give you this paper with a red rose pictured on it
A red rose painted from red ink,
the red ink that isn't ink,
that carries my soul in every drop.

Cross me, and the protagonist dies. ...Then again, they probably will anyway.
