Verbal Paint

paints-1149122_1920

I am an artist
Words are my paint
I use them to colour emotions
Laughter, surprise, joy or pain
Life is my canvas
My feelings are shades and hues
The crimson of passion. The black of fear
The green of envy. The calm of blue
The yellow of hope when life has let you down
Shades of grey when doubts abound
The silver lining
The pink of a blush
The solid assurance of brown
The red of loves first flush
White so pristine, it fills you with peace
Few know it forms when all colors meet
So many colors, some rich some so faint
They are all part of my palette
For I use Verbal Paint.
