Painting Over Happiness

Painting happiness
Crying all the while
Rainbows pasted over too

April showers
Hide behind a smile
And puddles beneath a muse

And tiny ripples criss
Across the pain
Reflecting broken hues

But, a dare sun peeks out
Still, I'm drenched in doubt
And harder pours the blues

    Those last 3 lines cover the masses. Everyone's a painter. Brilliant work as always.
