Poetry: “Portrait”

In a rush this morning, but here is an older poem. Enjoy!


Portrait                  by: Rose Clifford

Paint my body with your warmth,

As I lay still here in your presence.

Outline my contours with your stencil,

While you shade in the curves,

That spread out from my shadows.

Make me beautiful with your hands,

Make me feel fluid —

Liquid in form, in mind, in thought.

Create me as you would like,

Soon assembled to perfection.

Decipher your lust,

In those strokes of desire.

I am ready to be someone else.
