Talk of Shades

February 1, 2016 | By
crimson

“Crimson ,the hue of early noon
A clumsy mishmash
Of ecstasy and doom”

Blue , the color of all my morns
Teeming with hope and
Shredded bygones
Crimson ,the hue of early noon
A clumsy mishmash
Of ecstasy and doom
Green , the signal of twilight
I dress up to win
A stranger’s delight
Lilac, the order of after hours
Carnal pleasures..
Rushed departures
White – the post midnight shade
Reminds me to resume
With a sparkling slate
Ah these colors.. I love them all
They help me hide the tattered doll
I know so well oh so well
Yet black is what keeps me sane
It’s velvet touch soothes my skin
Black is where I shed my shades
The chosen color of my precious sin.
