Paint Me

Paint me lost in the darkness. 
Paint me slipping away from every thought,
Sinking in despair--unable to escape.
Paint me with pitch black in sight and light always on my back.
Being lost in an ocean of tears
And not knowing how to swim.

Paint me brave.
Yelling, screaming, punching through the darkness.
And at last paint me saved.
Being lost but to be able to be found.
Paint me happy with the warmth of the sun shining upon my face.
