A Color with No Name

February 27, 2008
By Ashton Williams, East Orange, NJ

A nameless color,
Blank, white.
Driving me insane.
Crude song,
An unkempt nest.
My vision blurred,
With negatives of such shame.
I try to paint a smile across an empty pallet.
Atop an unknown color,
When you look upon it.
Empty grin of white teeth and lips.

Shaking paint in a clear colored vile,
To make the world more gray,
Easier to stand.
An emotionless expression,
Equivalent to a color with no name,
A single character strand,
Gone.
