A Night In

The mood within the room is loud

Soft music mumbling as background noise

Strumming sounds of a base and light taps of a symbol

The mood is just right

~

Carefully I filled my pallet 

Yellow, white, brown, red, black

Propped my canvas on the easel 

Careful not to cover you from my view

~

I dip my brush in the paint

Using you as my muse

Trying to get comfortable 

Allowing my eyes to dip into you

~

The first stroke is the most important

I paint you in the silence of my voice

Freeing my mind and staying in this moment

Making sure to make even strokes with my feelings

~

Look how I made this part dense

A glob of paint so intentional

Similar to the moment of contentment I had with you

Dense but small as the moment didn’t last long

~

This section here, it’s chaotic of sorts 

The colors are muted, much like I’ve felt as I stare at you

The stories I could tell, could yell, until my voice gives 

I sort of wish I left that section out

~

This part is my favorite, I curved the brush to mimic yours

Creating every dimple and crease and fold

Regal and elegant, proud and alive

These aren’t your favorite parts, however tonight, it will be

~

We sit together naked

I did this to get more comfortable with you

Embrace you as you are and hope you feel the same

Naked and vulnerable

~

I sit back and admire my masterpiece

Hoping this will forever alter my mind

The intimate moment, unable to be tampered 

Admiration of myself I suppose

~

I finally allow the wine I poured to touch my lips, watching you do the same

As the sounds from the record amplifies

The mood was perfect tonight

Hoping to finally be comfortable with myself
