when did your eyes turn from blue to grey? what a beautiful grey a cold grey a wet October grey an "I forgot my umbrella" grey a "Should we stay home?" grey a day consumed with nostalgic sadness grey a familiar reminder of rejection grey a hopeless new romance grey
as grey as the ash from your cigarettes as grey as that woolen hat that I'd wear while I waited wondering when you'd wander home as grey as my best shirt you stripped off of me on a grey night
i fell in love with a mixture of black, blue, and muddy pearl it sparkled against me when the sky clouded up and we kissed until our vision blurred
I don't remember how vivid colors were before you.
