Paint Me As I Am

Paint Me As I Am

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe
"

a poem

"

Paint me as I am
All the imperfections
Do you see them?
I mean, really, they are quite obvious
so paint them a shade of
grey

Paint me as I am all the consellations

I was runner up in the game of life

Never the winner

So paint them a hue of

if I only knew


Paint me as I am
Silliness
shyness
The shyness may not show so well
still
it's there
As for the silliness
it shines right through
So paint them a hue of
blue

Paint me as I am

All the love inside

I gave it away

You took it for granted

Sucked it up

Now I'm a half empty cup

Paint them a color of

sorrow

One you may have to borrow

if

It's not in your pallette


Paint me as I am
All the passion
joy
The happiness
once so apparent
Paint them a shade that is
transparent

Paint me as I am

The

sadness

insecurities

regerts

remorse

the losses

they hurt so hard

so paint them the

deepest hue of blackish blue


Paint me as I am
A heart as big as the Texas sky
Yet as empty as yesterdays coffee cup
Paint my heart many colors
but the crack
paint it the same shade of
if I only knew

My heart paint it

red

pink

purple

indigo

because it was once

alive

vibrant


Paint me as I am
Paint me like me
Tell me, what do you see

Fabulous
love the layout and comparisons
to your heart and all the hurt inside......

We tend to see so many emotions in
colours but always the heart red and
our moods many different ones.........
its amazing when we think that colours
represent so much in our hearts.

Very sad piece though.

True to lifes trials most women can identify with this very heartfelt poem, now chloe, add the colour orange, also green, the colours of your naval chakra orange, and green the colour of your heart chakra, you have lived loved and lost, trusted, and learn't, all that glitters is not gold, however the plus is, your experiences have made you into a wonderful poetess, my friend thankyou for reviewing my poem, A cosmic encounter, nice knowing you, Moonbeam.

I love the use of the colors and I the paint me as I am. The hurt is quite clear in the expression in this piece. It is a creative and brilliant write.

an intriguing piece of art, jam packed with emotion.

An interestingly written piece...one looks at themselves and finds all the emotions and character that has been created by the fortunate and unfortunate moments of life...and yet we are still...continuing...to paint.

nice work...Chloe
