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
Luxury
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
