  • I once saw you floating on a rainbow sun

    That winked with such warm glimmer and with colorful rays

    That brightened up my day

    As I drifted away with the clouds just to watch you


    But that faded

    As I found myself

    In a dark, dank, dreary well

    With nothing left in my soul

    Where my smile faded with my loss

    I climbed the walls from so far down

    My finger nails bleeding with red paint

    And gray dirt

    I painted my own doom, I gritted my teeth

    As I clawed at that smile that was so bloody and dirty itself

    Tears in my eyes I felt the sting of being alone

    A dark cloud that moistened my heart

    And my lips

    As the sun only gave shadow to my soul

    I cried, yes cried, where smiles were of a dank apparition

    But I made it to the top of the well

    And I laid on the sun-filled grass

    Green and full of that light

    That glimmered in my soul

    A star in which I smiled to welcomed

    "You have made it"

    She said

    I laughed and said

    "Yeah, now I see something"

    "And what would that be??"

    She said and spoke

    I just laid in my world of my own sun

    Where I drifted on my own cloud

    I never heard a word from her, but I answered her question

    I laid there and whispered to myself in exhaustion, "My smile!" "Colorful rays"
