Black is the Sound of Colour

Black is the sound of a thunder storm
as it rampages across the landscape
the crack of thunder as lightening
flashes across the sky pitch black

Black is the feeling deep in your gut
when something disturbs and scares you
as you watch black shapes creep towards you
leaving you shaken and wanting to hide

Black is the heart full of despair
when a loved one is finally lost 
either to death or relationship breakup
black is the grave that waits us all

    I am quite patial to black especially when it comes in a sexy nighty. If there is a thunder storm even better, she'll hold me that much tighter. I digress, great poem, good luck in the contest.
