Portrait

I'd love you to rip the blood
From my veins

Like scarlet ribbons
And display it to the world
Like a trophy
How I would celebrate you
Bravely putting my inner feelings on show
For my benefit
Pure recklessness and passion
Handed over to you
To curate

How I desire to be painted by
A creator like you
Deftly forming art from my luxurious life force
How I wish to be interpreted by you
Exposed in a portrait
Reborn from the brush and impulse
Of an artist

Hang me up upon the wall
When you have completed me
For all the world to explore and debate about
But let the intention behind your artistry
Be calculated and sincere
For creativity without conviction
Is mere caricature

To receive love, you have to give it...

Loved the alliteration here:
