The Ugly Rainbow


My eyes are red

From the tears shed


My moon is blue

From the missing of you


My sky turns dark

From lacking your spark


My grass grows grey

From your walking away


My heart is black

From the love I lack


My river is brown

From being let down


My mood is green

From the jealousy seen


My heart seeks pity

From my rainbow unpretty

    This is sad but beautifully written and a great use of metaphors Brad. I enjoy sad poems that are well written. I don’t think that is unusual as we can’t be happy all the time. Lovely my friend. Did I miss your poem Port of Call, I have been watching for it?
    Have a blessed day my friend. Sending hugs and love to you my friend. 💕❤️🤗🤗Jonikins

    Sometimes that is how it is…we must just move on…but, the poem, and I know you are an artist, is great, it sings the words all the way through. Wonderfully written my friend and all the best,
