A Brush of Friendship

by Autumn Leaves   Jan 1, 2013


Reveal to me your wounds so that
I can apply my lips like salve.

Tell me your woes so I can help you
prepare for the battles up ahead.

I am not distraught by your distresses
I am encouraged by your desires to
stand firm like a strong man.

Don't push me and my feelings aside
by building walls that are too high.
No, I can't climb over and your pride
has block the way in.

Believe me I care for you and I am
loyal to all my true friends.

No, I would never make a portrait of
you with pastel colors, because those
colors describes someone who's weak.

I will take my paintbrush and apply
the brightest and boldness colors to
describe someone who's truly
unique.

*This poem is written for all my true friends including a fellow poet on this site.

    Shant'e, you are the sweetest. Anyone would be very lucky to have you as a dear friend! I mean, just look at this poem... it just radiates true friendship.

    I love the creativity with the paint - how pastel colors is a form of weakness...that you would only use bold, bright colors for your brightest friends.

    I'm beginning to love each piece you post, keep it up, girl! :)

    I love this because i get the vision of a healing love and compassion shared. The point of view is from someone who geniunely cares and i get that. I think it comes across great with readers because actually caring for people is easy but truly the art of healing is a talent only for love.

    This was my favorite stanza cause i believe its typical for people to block people out when their hurt than actually letting them in. If only personally people could realize that letting people in helps better.
    Overall the sacrafice for the other person and the commitment to heal is what really amazed me.

    A really nice poem directed to your friends who must be proud of you. I loved the idea of using paint brush, brightening and boldness colors to describe your feelings ... this is totally unique way. My only critique is related to grammar, the word "describes" in the last two stanzas should read "describe" without "s".
    I really loved your work. Thank you for sharing that with us, 5/5.
