What Color is Despair

A poem, of sorts, by Susan Todd Martin

 

What color will you paint my soul?

What color will you paint my life?

 

What color will you paint my house?

What color will you paint my house?

Winter white where no one shouts

What color will you paint my house?

 

What color do you think I see?

A space of clear that once was me

What color do you think I see?

 

What color should I paint my walls?

What color should I paint my walls?

A shade of pink when no one calls

What color should I paint my walls?

 

What color should I wear?

What color should I wear?

It don’t matter, no one’s there

What color should I wear?

Why should I even try…
