By Maya Gerritis ’25
I am pink and blue, and purple
I create a painting of a sort.
A broken, beautiful masterpiece.
A dark pink watercolor on my cheeks,
A deep brown on my lashes,
And a swirling blue in my eyes.
He was purple and green, and black.
He added to my masterpiece, making it look more like a trainwreck than an art piece.
He added a black and blue swirl by my eyes,
A deep red on my knuckles,
And a screaming pink on my neck.
My painting was made in my own head because I wasn’t brave enough to display my colors.
Oh, the artists we have become.
