Colour me in your mind Am I vermillion red or prussian blue? Maybe a mix of the two? Or just a hue Of simple forest green No wait, aquamarine like an underwater scene Deep and darkness within Yet maybe you enjoy shades that are bright and they look so under the sunlight But true colours show only under the grayest skies to the most observant eyes
You only get to know a person truly when they are at their darkest moments. Oh, happy Holi from a Norman Gortsby ;)
I saw the gray color Thought everything was back to normal But who could have guessed it was cloud gathering at a place To drench me in the rain. I then saw the red Thought I finally got some love But who could have guessed It was the wound in my heart Spilling out the blood.
Husband smiling down at his wife’s baby bump: He wonders if it will be a boy or a girl He wonders if it will be a man or a girl He wonders if it will be his son or a girl, A girl… a gender he disconnects from because they come with topics that people should keep away from If it’s a boy he can congratulate him when he brings home a girl But… if it’s a girl he’ll have to warn her about boys Boys will be boys and girls should beware.
He wonders how he would cope if his little boy blue decided to wear pink How he would cope if his son, this man sat crying in his room and was too afraid to say.
He looks down at his wife’s baby bump and wonders…
a world destined with a tint, with a filter, life that’s given to be a film, played after your death, would your life be In colour or black and white? only black & white because all You remember doing is nothing Where your own world crumbles & falls apart, That your own film becomes a sight of depression, beckoning behind you So gleam like our eyes gleam to see colour Be vibrant, Be bright, Different, Outbursting, Unique, Extravagant, Exquisite, Exotic, So your life Is your favourite film Filled with lifelong colours
