three words: yellow, blue, gray :)
Send me three words and I'll write a poem (x)
Was there colour in the world before you?
I forget sometimes.
Was there yellow before the golden strands of your hair?
Surely even the sun could not have been so bright, so pure.
Surely even the proud narcissus shied away from such brilliance.
Did my eyes know blue before I met you?
The summer skies cannot have been brighter than your eyes.
The ocean waves cannot have been deeper than the bruises staining your skin.
Did red exist in the cosmic palette before you?
Before the heated-brand press of your lips on my skin,
Before the pearls of your blood beading on your knuckles?
Was there colour in the world?
It’s so hard to remember these days,
Under all these grays that you left behind,
Grey smoke–grey skies–grey ash–grey windows–
It’s so hard to remember these days
that you used to shine so bright.
That I used to shine with you, too.
