Tag Archive: colors






Colors lying all across the ground

yellow, orange, red, and brown

but I thought only of red

seeing this, after the trees had shed

because it’s the only human one

flowing through us until we’re done

It’s not what shows up on our skin

unless another, unkindly, breaks in

tearing us apart; instead of twirling

together, dancing and swirling

like the sweet, falling leaves

on the morning’s autumn breeze







It had to be done

although not one heart was won

it had to be done

The choice was all mine

but it will be yours in time

the choice was all mine

True colors were shown

dark hues completely your own

true colors were shown

So, now, there’s the wait

though the hour may be late

patiently, I’ll wait
