I'd put my hand over my heart, but I'm trying not to dirty them- on the other hand, I've been caught red-handed before and I've just got too much time on my hands.

Running and Running and Running Away

FREE WRITING

And I'm trying to paint a masterpiece-
but my fingers are short and chubby 
And the finger paints are only in red yellow and blue
I'm trying to remember
Trying to remember who you used to think I was
Who was I when you met me
And I'm running and I'm running
Like my feet never learned to do anything else
Because I need to feel the wind try to restrain me
I need to feel anything
anyone to hold me back
To remember what it used to be like
And I'm falling and I'm falling 
And I wish I was falling in love
But I'm falling from the sky
From the moon
From the sun
Fallen angels are known to burn in more way than one
I'm trying to scratch
And scribble out my mistakes 
But my fat little fingers can barely grip the crayons-
How will my shoulders ever hold the world?
I'm running and I'm running
into everything that you left behind
I'm following a trail at the same speed your leaving it
So You'll never know 
And I'll never know you until you
Stop

    If you're trying to describe the frustration of having an artistic vision and not knowing how to bring it to life, this piece would sure come in HANDy

    The last line really kind of brings this piece to a halt.

    Here from your comment on Espresso#1: thank you!! for the comment+inspiration haha. This piece is just beautiful from the title to the last word! The way emotions are expressed through your imagery is amazing. My favourite parts are "Trying to remember who you used to think I was, Who was I when you met me" and "And I'm falling and I'm falling, And I wish I was falling in love, But I'm falling from the sky"
