I wrote this while getting my last tat... I was getting one I did myself when I was 13 covered up.
Take my body, through this pain, and love me single
Just the same.
Dawn your needles, stab me sweet steel, show me the pressure
Make me real.
Tattoo me a relationship, draw me a fantasy, paint me a memory
deliver me ecstasy.
Passion you promise, yet pain you deliver, a feeling of emptiness
Cry me a river.
Expectations abound, with faith we dive, Unsure of the outcome
On possibilities we thrive.
Tattoo me a love, but where none can see, unless I let them
Help release me.
The ink we are stuck with, committed I am, if it ends up a disaster
Cover it I can.
The love we can't force, to stay by our side, if it leaves us a wreck
Time heals our pride.
Hold me up close, steadily she draws, the image I'm after
Covering my flaws.
Tattoo me a lifetime, love me till death, draw me some passion
Till my Final Breath.
