painting the sky - PUBLISHED!

The following poem is my first ever published work. It was published in the online e-zine "Soft Whispers" on January 21st, 2010. 

the sky
is too blue
and too bright
for me
it is far too blue
and far too bright
to reflect my despair
and pain
i’d like to
reach up
and seize hold of it
by its corners
and drag it down
to earth
where i would
splatter it all over
with shades
of rainy gray
and melancholy black
and dirty brown
then throw it back up
so you would see it
and know
what you’ve done to me
