Painting by Numbers

There is a cast of dark light

Darkly shadowing your eyes

It hides an important part of your face

It's gaunt, drawn, haggard and worn,

Like you're in a constant battle

Fragile.

I have this belief, just for you

That there is this ultimate good

And it will come through

Just for you.

Entering a room trussed up

In that Loki persona

I've seen every face

But that has never meant I understand

What is going on

In the black on white world.

But just for you

I can paint on color

Dress it up, send it off

Here is your mail-order reality.

Handle with care.
