I bought black glasses
I only see the world through black and white lenses
Photography, little black dress, dangerous
They made me happy
They said they didn't suit my face
I felt....****

I bought pink glasses
I only see the world through pink lenses
La Vie En Rose
They made me happy
They said they didn't suit my face
I felt....****

I bought red glasses
I only see the world through red lenses
Classic, romantic, powerful
They made me happy
They said they didn't suit my face
Maybe I'm just...****?

I don't know anymore
I felt anxious this time....
I bought a pair of bright pink glasses....I was panicking...I regret my decision.... and a pair of red...I was panicking....oh god!
No matter what I do I'm ****....so it's okay....I hope no one says anything....I don't want to be reminded that I'm ****....


I only see the world through black and white lenses

I only see the world through pink lenses

I only see the world through red lenses
Classic, romantic, powerful

I only see ****
I only see ****
I hate my glasses
I'm ****
They don't make me happy
****
It's ok. It doesn't matter. I'll get another pair in 2 years.
I'm **** now... nothing will change...
Maybe I'll be beautiful by then...
I'll just buy something plain....stupid me why did I buy pink and red glasses!

you have red flags around you
and I do not want to wear rose coloured glasses anymore
They know you as a good girl
Innocent face with high talent
Watching the world through your glasses
Keeping quiet to keep your secret

Point of view is how you treat the world
Black and white is your religion
Underestimating for admiring another

i saw you through
my heart-shaped
rose-tinted glasses:
i saw red flags
and turned them green,
i heard warning bells
and mistook them for fireworks,
i scraped my knees on your edges,
and thought the blood was ambrosia
(i knew you were trouble
but i put on my rose-tinted glasses
and thought it was love).
:( a healing poem, very difficult to write

Take them off.
They’re blinding you.
They’re hiding reality.
Take them off
And you’ll see
A different world.
One not so happy.
It’s scary,
But it’s real.
And that is better
Than some fantasy.
We don’t need to hide
To be protected.
The world doesn’t need to hide
For our protection.
Because knowing
Is protection enough.
It’s just a different way
Of seeing things.
It’s a change of view.
A change of perspective.
A change.
Sometimes I want glasses like those. Ones that hide everything. Ones that make everything seem okay.
It’s too bad.

I hide behind my glasses
Because I believe if you can’t see my eyes
You’ll never see the pain inside
But that comes with a price
Because that pain makes me who I am
So until I let the world see
No one will know the real me.
They say the eyes are windows to the soul so would that make glasses blinds?

When I take my glasses off
the world becomes blurry.
A conglomeration of colors,
nothing I can distinguish.
Even you, I must admit.
Your vivid eyes
staring into my soul,
your soaked wet hair
after a long shower.
How your lips form
when you say my name aloud,
your figure’s beautiful silhouette.  
Those faces you make
when we’re alone
are inked in my memory,
but these details are lost
when my glasses come off.
My pale blue eyes,
barely holding sight,
must not be able to catch
the intricacies that come with
knowing you or even loving you.
Should I even mention “love”?
Do I have that right?
I’m awfully blind to that as well.
You, along with this world,
are lost inside my hopeless blur
when my glasses come off.

Do you notice?
Jumbling tumbling out of line
With glasses pressed to nose
Too scared to show my eyes
Nervous tick of pressing them
closer into skin
As if it hides me...
—I guess it does
Because who would speak
To someone without eyes?
Confidence building is a *****

Round, frame-less glasses.
To you, I may appear an artist.
But they are merely glass.
