"Creativity is how you tell everything you don't want to say to everyone"

Colors get watered down,
By the water that flows out,
From the clouded glass that fell,
Trying to dry the once beautiful painting,
Is pointless,
Those perfect brush strokes,
Can only be made once,
And there is no salvaging,
The muddied colors,
That lay on the palette before me,
The vibrant purples and greens,
Yellows and blues,
Pinks and oranges,
Have turned to dull grays,
And ruined browns,
And the once beautiful picture,
Is now a black abyss of terror.
