The Painter - Poem by Blake Lives

It's almost unjust the effect you cause
Like a timid rose you are, beautiful even in silence
Rays of brilliant light reflecting on your long wavy petals
The only scene even comparable to a smile as bright and refreshing as a summer's eve
I never knew a flower to be such a formidable foe?
Yet no beating could compare to the pounding you deliver to my heart
My face a mere canvas for you to paint at your leisure
Splashed with red joy with your laughter
Or swallowed in blue despair with your absence
