Let There Be Light
To have an artist fall in love with you
will teach you to see yourself in a different light.
They will spend their days transforming your pain
into indescribable beauty
and your hurt into hues
of awestruck wonder
with each deliberate brushstroke of color,
over every single scar.
You will be reminded
that the significance of many artists lies
within their ability to sift through the ruins of happiness
and showcase its resilient underlying beauty;
proving its very existence to the doubtful
as they look at devastation and despair
but still see hope.
