Candlewitch

"Tarpaulin" by: eddy styx

“Tarpaulin”  

I want to be
your human canvas
carve me like
you would on stone
my fingers bleed
words upon the page
yet I am only
flesh and bone
pacing my steps
upon the stage
only mortal man
who writes his soul
crying out
to the thin air
I beg of you
to treat me fairly
look down upon me
if you dare
but don't ignore me
with your silence
for I would be
your human canvas...

        Eddy,

        You’re at your best!
        You’ve ingeniously
        set the stage with a
        macabre series of
        delectable words!

        Outstanding!

                Doh! I'm a wet blanket, or spoilsport, frittering away the 'intensity' or 'dark thoughts' etc in poems, by some nutty comment! lol.

                what more could anyone ask but to be treated fairly & squarely, to be written about and or painted for their intrinsic beauty alone........

                • Candlewitch
