The Portrait

Your face is like a portrait, hanging on my wall!

Your face is captured like a painting
Hanging upon my wall
To admire the true beauty you possess

Eyes that draw you in, no matter where you stand

Those sweet ruby lips so finely drawn
Glistening of the soft kisses we once enjoyed
Those strands of long hair strung across your face
Trying to hide the insecurity of your own self beauty

The light shines down upon your portrait
Surrounded by spacious white walls
So I can stare upon how you once looked
In that lonely locked room inside my mind ...
