[painted]

A Poem by Sarah Ott

there's a sadness in the backdrop to the stars tonight;

a wetness in the paint �" something less finished than i’d like.

the stars, at least, are still stars -

oiled light for midnight, and they burn,

and almost seem to blur into a hope- -

God if i could have the strength to cope and know,

that tomorrow will come anyhow. ~

Quite a thought AND a question - both.

Great writing. Your words escape the blandness that is so common here.
