I Sit Defending the Illusion of MeTo Derick Varn's previous piece     To a Sleepless PoetTo Derick Varn's next piece

She's on Canvas

Paint on the canvas;
blue on a black background.
she was staying for a piece
(or so I wished).
Nude for a moment--
that moment for love:
she needed that moment for release
I needed that blue, that black,
I needed her brilliant pink;
I needed her!
The door shut
she was not there
I have never had her
but in my dreams of passionate red.
