Black Is The Color

And the black night falls away
A fallen promise as well lingers
Hidden were tears kept at bay
When its time and never moments

Of time to have its default
Perhaps a wonder to believe
Silent wars, unheard yet fought
Bewildered yet achieved

In light to unspoken nights
Words became but a distant
Where souls be destine to have died
A human shell to live returns

As empty as colors will bring
A favorite will only mean its demise
As colorful as a night will mean
To let but the few beliefs... dies

And black is the color I’ll choose
For perhaps fallen nights to only remember
Days and days entitled to lose
Yet of nights... if only forever
