From you I sought instruction
the transfer of flora to canvas
the transfer of minds onto surface
I wanted your instruction.
From you I sought understanding
the development of my change
the communication of your needs
I wanted your understanding.
From you I sought community
the sharing of like feelings
the caring of our hearts
I wanted your community.
From you I sought intimacy
the spilling of my blood
the painting of my trees
I wanted your intimacy.
I wanted those trees we brought into being
I wanted you to be there when they came out of me
I wanted your eyes to be the first to see
I wanted you to know a deeper part of me.
