I wrote this a couple months ago and can't seem to think of a way to finish this. So comments with ideas on how to keep it going would be much appreciated. Thank You
I have added some stanzas, and they are the ones in the blue


Awake to a sullen sky

A painter
Smudging his paints
Into the sunrise

There is a mountain, seven stories high
And a road rises to show the way
You may be Thursday's child
And it's a long way to go


With a scribe
Dipping his quill
In deep twisted waters

There is a song, left un-sung
The harp I loved tha once sang
Left alone, unstrung
So sleeps the pride of former days


A vindictive serpent
Feeding off the sleeping bodies,
Deep eyes of a cryptical envelopment,
Piercing furthur than any fang

A painter sits
And with a gentle stroke
Paints a picture

I'd focus more on the idea of the painter. i like the imagery but it feels too loose and undefined as it is

I'm not sure I like the third stanza. It's a bit wordy, it feels unrelated, and as OKSauce said, the painter idea feels like it should be the focus. Perhaps work on the imagery as well; it feels nameless right now, like anyone could have written it. I want to be able to read it and say, "24WildRovers wrote this because he's a boss like that!" But right now, it feels very anonymous and rough.

I'd like to see this when it's finished. Good luck, mate.

Thank you both for your comments, I'll get to work on fixing that as soon as I can
