Such beauty in your sadness
Glassy blue eyes
Quivering ruby pout
A softness only pain can bring

You make me want to love you
Hold you
Immortalize you
With the tip of my pen

As your hair falls over your face
Shadow takes you
A living sketch
Capturing your vulnerability

It is in this infinite sadness
That you are still
A prisoner to the eye
Masks lifted from the soul

No ink
No colour
Could truly hold your form
It is selfish

A want to preserve
Just one small piece
Something tangible
Beyond this body
