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.

Gorgeous poem...How very bare you make yourself. I appreciate your candor...sometimes that is extremely hard to do. If only painting colors to describe how you feel were so easy. As someone below said, I love the way this poem sort of rolls off your tongue, very deliberate...Great effect. (this is the first poem I have read of yours, and I am excited to continue the journey)
Thanks for sharing!

Try thinking of the glass as half full, hi Chloe xxx It is so nice to visit your page after such a long time.
This piece has an unusual format and I love that, it has so many qualities that are sad, but that is what you were aiming for so you have succeeded. As always your work is wonderful with a strong message of
"don't fall into this trap" but everyone does don't they?
Cheers Chloe,
Love to you and Donavan xxx

I like this poem. You take a thing that has been written more then once about painting and turned it into something i have never seen before... something unique. There is nothing on this poem I would change.

I simply love this. I felt a constriction in my throat while reading it.I don't want to spoil it by cluttering it up with my inadequate words but let me just say you have moved me and represented the myriad shades of my soul!

Wow what a picture you painted here... showing so many sides of your emotions with such deep and rich detail... I would paint your soul the color of a rainbow cause it's rare and beautiful.

I remember this one and I think I love it more now - without the colored text - than I did before. It's really a wonderfully written poem. I love how the images and descriptions trickle down to the final question of "what do you see?" It shows that we are not just one color, but many and those colors can change as we change. :)
