She Can Paint A Lovely PictureMature

-Inspired by something I saw on my blog (the bit in quotation marks)-

'She can paint a lovely picture
But
This story has a twist.
Her paintbrush is a razor,
And her canvas is her wrist'

 She can paint a lovely picture
But
It’s not a lovely thing
For her media is her blood
And her canvas is her skin.

She can paint a lovely picture
But
You see the problem is
Her paintbrush is a craft knife
And the body she paints is his

She can paint a lovely picture
But
Generally she won't
For her art is screaming
And tearing out her throat

She can paint a lovely picture
But
It's of a different kind
For the art which she makes
Is only in her mind

She can paint a lovely picture
But
These stories aren't the same
As what you think of pictures
And they're fully covered with shame.

The End
