My heart yearns for sunny skies, amber joy ‘n golden glee
To scoop fistfuls of tangerine laughter ‘n lower it all over me
The longing but gets drowned in a indigo sea of woe ‘n misery
Why does the crimson craving ‘n purple plum passion seem so far away?
Why do the roseate memories crumble at my touch day after day?
I await the verdurous green to seep from the lush meadows into my skin
Why does it get tinted with grey, the colour of the corner I’ve painted myself in
The purple pink peonies, lilac lilies ‘n lavenders bloom all around
The world carries on, as I plummet down in a blackhole sans a sound
I gulp morsels of grey gloom ‘n wash it down with a glassful of my blues
It oozes into my belly ‘n bones, slices ‘n scalds my soul into ashen hues
Churned into a vast vicious tornado
I wilt ‘n wither into the obsidian oblivion
In a world obsessed with vibrant rainbows ,
my insipid hues never stand to reason
