work in progress

from the night when your lie
prompted me to spill my soul
in words you scorned
i cannot find the shade of blue
with which to paint my heart
after endless mixings
in every color of the midnight sky
i still cannot settle
on the just and fitting hue
for life remaining

my brush dabs here and there
in strokes of incoherence
almost invisible bits of scarlet
streak the surface
random drops of lifeblood
left from when your words
like an army of stilettos
punctured what i now know
was a painted landscape
on a flimsy canvas only i could see

so a patchwork ragtag it remains
awaiting the finished topcoat
applied by a hand more masterful
than mine will ever be
