Colors gone wrong

Colors gone wrong

I try to paint

to set the colors right

but they elude my will

I mix yellow and green and brown

but the obtained tint does not satisfy me

Something that ought to be natural in me

is forced, constricted

The landscape has an element of sadness I don’t want to recognize

Everything should be bright and full of life, but it ain’t

and my heart is heavy with a pain I try to escape from
