Traveling Artist


The blank canvas 

they said I could do
anything... ANYTHING

until one day
i learned anything but art

can't support yourself with that

feeling my insides vanish
standing frozen
gasping for breath
veins closing 
muscles atrophying

maybe I was 9

the blank canvas

where would I go?

how could I be?

their fear
their unfulfilled dreams

stole mine. angry. 

the blank canvas
goes under
hiding in
someone else's picture
afraid to lose


i lost mine
