Sharpies

Blissfully dancing, each crimson tear
One by one creating a river
Each river unique
Yet each river filled with sorrow
Why has each river been painfully caused?
Each stripe, filled with red hatred
Hatred towards happiness
These rivers filled with sadness and in each deep crevasse
There is a longing to heal each river
The canvas each stripe is on
Bleeds
Hoping one day, strength may overcome sorrow
Happiness will fill each river
Stripes will heal
No more pain
No more melancholy state of mind
Only joyful smiles
Just a happiness to be alive
Your pain will no longer be inflicted by yourself, beautiful canvas
Heal
