Broken poet Thinking about what would make me calmer I splatter more red and then smear it with my hand across the blue. My hands are a mess but my head will always be messier. Sometimes shapes in circles appear but at times things stop abruptly. It's like time has come to a stand still. Artists are supposed to be crazy, they're supposed to overdose and jump off balconies. But the worst part is most of them are broken. Their emotions are painted to stop them, they have a chemical imbalance. They all just want to be fixed, someone to stitch them, they yearn to be completed. They pour out all their sorrows and pain, when they are done they are supposed to feel better. At the end they feel nothing but numb. Getting off all the paint from my fingers but they still come out stained blue. This color haunts me and I wish the sky was grey for it is so much easier to live. You were a beautiful canvas, gentle and breathtaking, But you started drifting, you changed, your scent became white lilies which wasn't neither yours nor mine. And a part of me knew. One more glance at your picture and I slide under the water, it fills my lungs. The scenes are ugly, tragic and pitiful and I want it to be over. My eyes are open but it's pitch black black until the world ends, I can't feel my toes and my thoughts stop, My breathing becomes short and then everything fades away.
