Self-Portrait of Confusion

Paint brushes dripping with paint

Thrown splashes spattered on a wall

Two hands moving at a furious pace

A portrait of my confusion revealed for all to see

 

Arms tiring

Mind racing

Colors changing

The confusion remains unchanged

 

Spent and exhausted I sit

Laying back, wall staring – trying to make sense of it all

Not sure if I can read through the tea leaves

Looking for a fresh canvas to start all over again.

  1. “a portrait of my confusion revealed for all to see…” there is such beauty in this darkness. i keep forgetting that. i can’t find it in mine but i see it in yours.

      1. mr. rogers used to make paintings using his feelings on his show. i remember that as a kid. i always wanted to try it, but i am no artist. mine would probably just turn out brown and hideous.
