It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Layer upon layer, I paint

a charcoal outline of your face
still crowds my canvas
your eyes piercing
through the paint of my souls portrait

memories that refuse to be erased
framed and displayed for all to see
the life of my brush feeds me strength
and my pride serves as my palette

i choose RED…
brushing over the holes in your heart
slowly swirling the color, stroking softly
laying it over your power

i choose BLUE…
smothering the blank stare you give
emptiness surrounded in lashes
beautiful windows with no view

i choose GREEN…
burying the coldness of your soul
throwing paint at your deciet
disguising the smile that was made to lie

splashes of beauty to hide your death
the rust from your heart bleeds through
and, once again, i bury you-
layer upon layer, i paint

the furious strike of a match
and you burn- red, blue and green
your face melting, disappearing before me
breathing in the smoke of my saved soul

scrubbing the color from my hands
clearing the ash from my face
i am cleansed of you
all you are and all you were

i am cleansed…

Layer upon layer, I paint
