Black and White
The sun has set and left my heart forlorn
like charcoal sketches, shadows wrap the day.
I almost whispered wishes that they'd stay,
but while I pondered all the light was gone.
There dripped in selfish pity was the night,
where once we danced and dreamt that love would last,
but like the flowers bitten by the frost
it seemed that all of hope had taken flight.
Yet stories can be hidden in the shade
like photographs portrayed in gray and black
that make us fill the colors that are lacked,
even though, like memories, they fade.
Still, in the shadows, secrets beckon us
to where we know are truths that we can trust
