A Watercolor of My Troubles


I love to write poems and I enjoy everything that's poetic because poetry is always soothing and perfect for the soul.


Color of My Sorrows

I had tried to make

A watercolor of my troubles

A sketch of my worries

I had mixed

The ocher of my fatigue

The ruby ​​of my sorrows

And the silver of my lost tears

I took the most tapered brush

And I drew two or three lines

But the paint was bland

The damaged canvas

So I put everything away

I threw the water

And in the sink appeared to me

The true color of my sorrow
