and that tiny words set my soul free.
i wish that i could paint
and that brush strokes untangled my heart.
i wish i could play music
and that one and two and three and four and set me straight.
i do have a talent, though.
i can see.
i can see love in the gaps of crinkled pages,
humanity pigmenting the shapes on a canvas,
and i can see frosted windows and melting sunsets on the notes swirling through the air.
i can see things for what they are
and i can see things for what they can be.
that is a special gift,
because i don't rely on any outside sources
or physical abilities.
i don't even need my eyes.
i feel lucky to have this gift,
the only problem is that nobody else can see it.
