Poem – Canvas

And here is Lilly painting.

She’s smudging with her finger

Sensations that still linger.

They are no longer blinding.

And here is Lilly draining

The blood that’d been infected

Onto the page. Ejected

Those things that were constraining.

And she is not pretending.

She doesn’t have to swallow

The long-forgotten sorrow –

It is no longer pending.
