In My Sorrow



In my sorrow
I dress up in purple,
put a green ribbon in my hair,
wear a pink coloured smile on my lips.

I let the orange light of the sun
shine on me,
the red warmth cuddles me,
listen to the golden rays sing me a lullaby.

Pure blue in my eyes, silvery tears glistening,
northern lights of my heart.

Colours I have.
Strength will I gain.

Together we will beat the sorrow.

Yes, harness the colours to fight by you, against the blues, against the dark gloomy moods...

I hope the colours will do that for me. With me, Kutuharju.

The burden of sorrow seems much lighter when you have someone to share it with. Lovely poem, Susu!

SusuPetal said...

Together we're stronger. Thank you, Kenneth.

Sorrow seems to work with bright colours too. Somebody must stare at you walking in the city with all those colourful clothes and tears in your eyes!

SusuPetal said...

Oh, people don't pay attention to sorrow, chrome3d, they just walk on by and try to find something to shop:)

It's good to read this right now. Gotta keep fighting. Gotta keep trying to work things out. I do know. Oh, I do know.
