Jazzy Spill

The color of my quill,

changes with the strength of my will.

Sometimes, its strokes are black

because of the heart it lacks

and the darkness it holds,

hidden beneath its multiple folds.

Often, its ink is pure white

because of the innocence it stores inside.

It also paints the canvas blue

because of the tantrum which life threw.

At times, it changes to red,

because of the unhealed scars that bled

or may be the crimson heart

got hit by the cupid’s dart.

It can also bleed yellow

if the lemons turn out a bit mellow.

Today, it is sparkling green

because of the Earth that is clean.

I wonder what it will spill next,

a cliched drama or something a bit grotesque.

I leave it up to you, please guess!

  1. I absolutely loved this!!!! It’s so true too – color of the quill or what it writes is often stemming from what’s brewing inside. Too all those colors and versatile writings – we will keep waiting, until next time πŸ™‚
