Magpie Tales # 234 Painful Perfection

Starry Night by Alex Ruiz

Perfection
Once seen
Never forgotten
Once seen
Has to be painted
.......

Enraged losing friends
Losing friends who loved 
Who loved him despite 
Despite his madness 
Madness driving him
Driving him to slashing
Slashing lines and colors
Colors from that night
That starry starry night
~~~~~~
Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales
Have a great week!
