The painting of a million pictures of words

They came to take my song away
I twisted and curled and jumped and kissed
Ever so slightly, a peck!
My lips shocked the windowpane
And sent fits of giggles
Juggling through my window frame

My dream leaped out from her ghetto
And twirled around my back
So you either hold the brush
Or you just enjoy the tickle
For as they draw you away
They paint you back in
With five thousand different colors of love.

I woke up
The music rings in my ears
My wet hair falls a dropping rhythm
I sit in my chair
And tap for some rain.
