He paints his world upon a tablet
As colorful metaphors mix
With the harshness of reality
Causing the furrowed expression upon his brow.

He paints his world upon a tablet
As images of a violent world
Invade his background, middle ground and foreground
Leaving him with a bitter taste between the lines of life.

He paints his world upon a tablet
As the brushstrokes from his pen to the paper
Open the door to his heart
And his private life is left exposed for all to see.

He paints his world upon a tablet
And uses the poetic word to demonstrate
The depth of his need to be understood
And SHE, SHE, SHE, reaches out to comprehend.
