I’m painting a picture

I’m drawing attention

I’m writing a fiction

I’m seeking redemption

I’m painting by numbers


I’m outside the lines

I’m creasing the paper

I’m taking my time

I’m writing a poem

I’m making it mine

It doesn’t quite flow

It doesn’t quite rhyme

I’m making mistakes

I’m crossing them out

I’m making it ugly

I’m making it shout

I’m spraying over

Writing on the wall

I’m burning the city

I’m watching it fall

I’m drawing attention

I’m drawing a tension.
