A Canvas on the Show


I stood there, numb with pain.
Had I Blood, it would have drenched me...
Had I Voice, it would have cried out by now...
Yet I stood there, still, numb.
I was a beautiful moonlit evening...waves crashing against the shore,
Two love struck stars falling from the sky 
Had paid a priceless visit to me.
I felt so alive in the slivery light 
That the moon, the stars and the sea had cast...
I was so proud just to be.
They all said I was beautiful...spell binding, they exclaimed.
Some desired me...some just admired.
I was a piece of Life captured in a frame...
I loved my hue,
And I loved being Midnight Blue.
Then one day, he came...
He had come for me, I know...
Held me in his arms...so close to his chest
I could almost feel his heart beat for me.
He took me back to his abode,
I was to be his forever, I hoped.

I looked at him with my silent eyes...
Bestowed on him my silver light...
I gave my beauty, my serenity, my love to him...
All that I ever could.
I was his and he was all I had.
But there was someone else too...
Someone beyond my comprehension...
Someone who loved him more...cared more...
Hurt more too...
She had been there when he first met me...
I had seen her approval glance...
Perhaps she loved me too...
But did I care, No.
And then one evening...
The world around me fell apart.
I heard them speak...
There was more noise than all words rioting together can make...
Some storm it was, a storm of love and rage.
Things fell...hearts broke...in Fate's single stroke.
In such anger towards me he came...
And drove his broken heart throught mine. 
He tore open my canvas frame...
Till the stars and the moon all ceased to shine.
I cried out...but in vain...
For I had no voice that could reach his ears.
The gashes on my soul opened wide,
And Midnight Blue I bled in pain.
They moved me...I saw him no more...
They treated me well...and patched me up...
They said I looked as good as new...
They put me up again...a canvas on the show

They said I was pretty but they exclaimed no more...
I was now bruised beyond beauty...
...Just another canvas on the show...
