I remember when we were painting
i put all the colors on my sheet

i was thinking of a rainbow, really
you know that

but it was not a rainbow
just a sludge
the color of mud
from when i forgot to draw lines
and let the colors
run into each other

u took just one,
blue as your eye
sprinkled glitter
and made a night sky

when we were done
i looked at yours
and wept
coz it was so beautiful

i know you offered
to pour your stars
over my sheet too
but that hadn't made me happy
only made it worse

coz i wanted them so much,
but somehow i didn't think
your bright stars
would look very good
over my muddy terrain
i wish i had drawn the lines better
on my rainbow
