The Color of Heartbreak

Jill Joy – The Color of Heartbreak – oil on canvas – 48×48″ – 2010 – $1,200 USD

Deep in the color of heartbreak now
Wake me please, I beg you
Nicked and bleeding
Red and green
Hidden by the sun

Giving up on you now
Because I have to
One sad blue dream at a time

You opened my heart for me
Loved me through
I try to remember that
While slippery tears release you

If you would meet me halfway
I would take you back
In a broken heartbeat.
