Until I Met You

I was a painter until I met you

One day I jumped 

when the earth opened up

and here I am today,

stuck on your words

that blew me away

Now I can’t stop

I’m almost over

the top,

up, up, up!

I never saw so much beauty

waiting,

elated to play

I was a painter until I met you,

your words just blew me away

Rushing home at the end of the day

I never knew I had so much to say

I opened my mind

to dive upon 

the gushing waters

of time,

never once looking 

behind,

all my sadness swallowed 

by the tide,

Spat back

when,

my creativity died.

I was a painter until I met you,

One day.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
