Colored Secrets

there is staining red 
weeping from feathers
and grey flowing 
from steely chains 

yellow is the bile
of spewing memories 
floating on greens 
of jealousy and hate 

Black are the words 
in history books 
written by pale
translucent tears

colors of our crimes 
hiding unseen behind 
the brilliant white 
we use to artfully paint

our innocence...
