I’ve etched my life in shades of cream,
Colour a luxury found only in dream.
To live my life in black and white
Will choke my soul with endless night.
I’ve dreamt of spicy golden suns
Of silver moons
I’ve dreamt of sweet emerald jungles
Of dark violet storms
I’ve dreamt of sour amber deserts
coral red skin;
Of tanzanite glaciers
But colourless passion sequesters my heart,
My lustrous pomegranate crumbles apart.
Classic ivory saturates my eye
Fantasy arrested and charged with a lie.
