The Canvas

The Canvas

Today you crossed my mind

A long suppressed memory

So I drew a hasty sketch

In black and white

I drew your smiling face

Tousled hair, mischievous grin

Perhaps I saw some innocence

In all the happy memories it did bring


Then came the shades of grey

The shattering of expectations

Empty words, shallow thoughts

Half hearted actions

Regrets and repentance

Superficial ties, waiting to snap

The void after every meeting

After each thought was laid bare


Finally I coloured it

And filled it with the background

That formed your truth, your values

Realized I had nothing left in common

With the one I drew from memory

You watched me smiling from the page

And as I smiled back, I realised

We changed so much, you and I


A splash of color on each other's canvas

Already stained with deeper hues

Our brush strokes but left a tiny imprint

Vague, indecisive, trivial

We faded away so fast and easy

That its hard to believe anymore

It ever meant anything at all
