Self Portrait

All the blue collides
onto the canvas of my self portrait.
Staining watercolors
drip down the palate
and streak my hands.

I am soaked in the
imperfection of this wheel.
So many tones,
light and dark.
The gray becomes the black
and the white smears the page.

The age of my green
turns brown and grounds me.
I feel the red ash
wash over me in disappoinment.

The final piece is
nothing more than an array
of swirls and circles,
twisted around
black lines
that seem to portray

  I enjoyed the colorful display of emotional distress as you so poetically penned. I do not agree with your conclusion that it was simple unhappiness, since your rainbow of sorrows seemed rather extensive.

All in all a very good write.
