The Painting

written by: N.E. Teeuw


Just show up
That’s all
Show up for me
And I’ll show up for you
Show up
Everything else is added detail to the canvas
You’re the painting
And I want to blend in with your colours
Your oils
Your textures
Your stains and your dyes
Our love will transcend space and time
And they’ll call us a masterpiece
You’re the painting
The original
And all I ever wanted was you
