The Sketcher…

27 Oct

Picture it & Write is a weekly creative writing prompt hosted by the Ermilia coauthors, Ermisenda and Eliabeth. Here’s my contribution to this week’s challenge:

You know how artists always seem to live in a world of their own? How they seem so oblivious of what goes on around them…but at the same time see every little thing and how beautiful it is or it could be. You know what huge geeks they are, how awkward they are when it comes to mundane things us mere mortals do. You do know how brutally honest they can be, right? How their compliments are the most sincere. How they give off that fearless vibe when they are the most insecure things ever to have been created.

Or maybe that was just him…

Do you know how twisted and dark their beautiful minds can be…did any one of them let you see? Let you see their soul? Let you inside their bubble? Did you like it there or were you just uncomfortable? They know how to get you out of your comfort zone. They know how to make you see things you could not see on your own. They can show you your own thoughts in a way you could not imagine.

Tell me it was not just him…

They make you want more. They open your eyes, your heart, your soul… They know how to paint over your scars and open new ones that you will never want to heal. They show you places you never want to leave. They sketch your demons embracing theirs. They make you believe in carpe diem. They inspire your darkness and light up your world.

Or maybe that was just me…

I like to believe that everyone has their artist. I like to believe you and me was a unique thing. But everything is unique to an artist. So, everything is the same.

I like to believe I was not mundane to you. But I know we all are…

Yes, everybody has their artist, but you were the sketcher…mine for a while but not belonging anywhere in this world.
