A Painted Picture


With an envision of eternity

A gathered whimpering of longing to be

Nowhere to be nowhere

But Heaven will arise

An ease at the brushes strokes

On the canvas of yoke

Jokes are made to laugh at

But this one is not funny

It makes me angry to paint it

How can my hand be so cruelly portraying

My life?

Who can laugh at this?

Is this supposed to be funny?

The painting should be forever hid

In the clutter of trash

In the waste basket

Until it stops being funny

And grows up

'Cause no one is laughing
