Failure’s Portrait

Failure’s Portrait

by Allie Marie

 

I paint failure.

Splattered smudges

wrestle on a broken canvas.

Wishes become scattered.

 

My medium is all too rich

for this weary blue

tinted with silky green.

My eyes get lost.

 

The sullen portrait

of a stormy ocean.

My  mind sails

the vast seas.
