No one is your strength or guidance. If life is what you wish to live then do not bind your soul to something unreal. The creater nor the keeper can heal you for it is blind faith that leads you.

The sky above me
The blue and the gray, plastered every which way
As is my heart when i think of you
It shakes in the colors of gray and blue
You walked away so easily, too easily
I know you think of me too
I know your heart shakes in all the colors
Mine is only gray and blue
You've stolen my green and red, my gold and purple
You've taken away the colors of my heart
Now all that's left is gray and blue
Every time i think of you

One day we'll see each other again, but the sky will not be above me
When we see each other again my heart will shake with every color
No longer the gray and blue

Finally I'll be next to you
Forever next to you

I don't know what you mean by "it wasn't thought out very well". I thought that it was great. It captured the feelings you had at the time and portrays the feeling of longing for someone who doesn't seem to return the feeling. Great work!
