"People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day!" -Winnie the Pooh


Peel each mask I wear away;
Each ribbon of disguise.
I've painted blue over the gray
that clouds my empty eyes.

The string that holds my broken heart
has slowly come undone.
Glass kisses shatter easily,
so please don't give me one.

I'm angry at the world.
This world of black and white.
These people that I see,
they don't know what's wrong or right.

My life is so unpleasant;
An unpleasant shade of gray.
A rainbow'd find it hard;
Hard to color in this place.

I was just listening to some music and this poem came to my mind...

This is an extraordinarily well written poem, and very rhythmic. I really like the message that you conveyed, or that I made out from this piece. I seemed to detect a dull, superficial quality to the world you see. Anyway, very well done!
