If I was a blank slate
Would you write my story?
Give me a reason,
Any reason,
Paint every inch of my skin,
With your words,
Teach me a language,
I want to write poetry,
To wrench a man's heart from his ribs,
Watch it beat, 
Watch it burn,
Fill my veins with ink,
So that I may bleed,
The color of my soul,
Teach me how to sing,
And burn down cities,
Witch cascading notes of dark flames,
To create a symphony,
Of cries and echoes,
Tell me,
Will you write my story?

The End
