Paint me yellow

I sometimes feel like an artwork that has gone wrong,
like someone took a canvas,
threw on different shades of paint that doesn't belong.

It's got too many shades of blue and gray,
there's some pink and yellow,
just a hint of light to make you want to stay.

When put on a wall and in a special light,
it's almost awkwardly beautiful,
so many layers it keeps you up at night.

They will wonder what brush was used and what size,
if more than one person painted it,
and why the contrast makes your pulse rise.

What doesn't show is the years it took to make,
the love, the laughter, the anger,
each pencil dipped in paint and heartache.

I sometimes feel like an artwork that is not yet done,
like I'm waiting for the one artist,
who will add enough yellow to make me feel like a sky with a sun.
