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

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
The shyness may not show so well
it's there
As for the silliness
it shines right through
So paint them a hue of

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


One you may have to borrow


It's not in your pallette

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

Paint me as I am






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





because it was once



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

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.

Excellent work Chloe. We could probably play a bit more but it's your words that are important and I think you've done a fine job her. Sad that you're feeling sad. Hope all this playing around has cheered you up a bit. Hope you've made a note of where the reviews for the new version have started.
Hey, maybe I've given you a bit of colour now eh?
If Fabian's finished I'll sneak a hug of my own in!

I'll paint you red for your big bleeding heart and blue for the times you're feeling down. I'll paint you yellow for the sunshine in your soul and purple for the royal way you make others feel. I'll paint you gold for your precious gift of writing and white for the purity you would be in the angel you would become in my artist's eye. I won't paint you green with envy or black with hatred or any shade of unkind and when I'm finished I'm not amazed that you look just like my friend! BIG HUG!

Thats a tall order, Chloe! - "Paint me as I am, Paint me like me ..."

Because to "paint you as you are", one would REALLY have to know you - or be caught NOT knowing you at all ... lovely poem!

What I see is a friend that has the talent of grace and demure of hope. This is a wonderful poem with more insight into you than maybe you meant to give. I'm proud to be your friend but let me say I do not see an empty heart in you.
