Painting the Cold

She is lying there
On a soft silver silk, slightly wrinkled
Eyes opened to the sky
Lips colder than yesterday’s rain

I can picture her getting up and walking towards me
Unhurried and delicate
She looks exquisite as always
I continued to stand in bewilderment

I want to ask her about yesterday
About the meal she cooked,
The basil tea she made,
The painting she completed
I have hundred other things to know about yesterday

She came a lot closer or I went to her ?!
I could now see her eyelashes glued in hurt
Still smiling ?

I left her on the same silver silk robe
Eyes still opened to the sky
Still..? Yes!
Yesterday she had painted this very moment,
Me walking away with the canvas


The coldest I have ever been.
