She held an aquamarine crayon
in between her chubby little fingers
Her small hand swallowed it
A glow enveloped her cyan eyes,
like firecrackers on the Fourth of July
She scribbled wildly,
with no direction

She held a marigold pencil
in between her slim fingers-
no longer chubby, but she thought they were
Her collarbones smiled through her skin,
even though she did not
But she still doodled,
eating her mistakes

She held a ballpoint pen
in between her brittle bones-
they were supposed to be fingers
Her ribcage protruded like shelves at the market,
however held no food: only pain
But she still drew,
and devoured the ink

She was a starving artist,
and art was all she ate.
A pun on the term starving artist, with a dark undertone, I suppose. I have the ideas down, but I think the format and such could use tweaking! Advice please! :)

This was the first of your poems that I read. i have read many of your poems since then, and all are good, but I keep coming back to this one. This is the one that sticks with me.
