Painting In Progress

Drops of orange
On the paper
A little yellow
Stained at the corner

Then came green
Spots of vibrancy
With pale baby blue
A bit of sunshine peeking through

Splotches of pink
The start of something new
Came bright hot red
Intensities never felt before

Drips of grey
Tainted the whole
Before turning it black
A bottomless pit

I wanted it the way
Back when there wasn’t paint
So I splashed white
Bleached and spotless like before
