True Colors

Splashes of color bleed on the walls
To me this messy canvas so deeply calls

Depictions of my mind so carefully displayed
I can scarcely compare with my limited shades of grey

My shadow is dim to these burst so bright
How I long to be their source of shimmering light

What stone must I crush or lily unveil
To unlock these oils and show my true prevail 

Surely these dreams are not impossible to be
For these visions began inside of me
