She painted over me with pigments of her past.
Never letting my natural colors show.
Trying to created, she destroyed.
Turning a masterpiece into a piece with no master.
Before the paint was even dry
She was eyeing another canvas.
The once soft strokes of her brush
Turned to flogs from cat-o-nine-tails.
Now I sit on a back shelf
Forgotten in the dust…
