I Paint You

I paint you in water
A blue crystalline saucer
Unreliable though it is
You disappear at first kiss


I paint you in the sand
Where the first fish approached the land
The sea, though, is jealous
It creeps in and steals you senseless


I paint you with the branches of the tree
that carve the sky a wisp cloudy
But nature, bitter, would tear you apart
As in time the tree dies and departs


Finally, I paint you in my dream
A place where everything ought to be
In it, your image shall be breathed
And my tears shall find redeem


by: Anna Elissa


"I dream my painting
and then I paint my dream."

-Vincent Van Gogh
