The Artist pens his way through paper
Slowly creating worlds
None have ever heard of.
He creates patterns –
Intricate patterns –
That swirl through parchment
Creating rainbows and stars
And thoughts and dreams.

The Artist puts his life into his work
Giving them feeling
And giving them breath.
He gives them his soul
His heart
And his mind
And locks them all away
Into pieces of paper.

The Artist gives away his work
To friends
To family
To peers.
He gives them an essence
Of his very heart and soul
And they lock it away
Into a cupboard…
Locking away his soul.

The Artist gives himself away
To people he can trust with his life.
