Tonight, I wish to paint you,
Paint your face full and white;
Leaving it colorless, like a corpse
Paint you in the light I see you.
And tonight, if I paint you,
It would be with piano music
In the background, a glass of red,
Breezes billowing through the drapes.
I wish to splatter paint all over you,
Red, blue, white, yellow, black;
To bring the colours back to your life,
To see your cheeks rosy again.
Yet all I see is darkness, fading lights,
Peeling paint off the walls,
Your pale face monochromatic,
And the colours start swirling...
