The Color Of Love - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Play Poem Video

You’re the kaleidoscopic petals
To my murky colorless world
A rainbow of color
That arches on my ominous skies

You’re the bewitching butterfly
That flutters her wings
Against my moist eyelids
Evaporating torrents of tears
Fading the fossilized pain
That lies deep within my sable heart

You’re the palette
To my ailing canvas
That drips my world with color
And eternalizes hope
With your array of watercolors

For melancholy is
A monochrome world
Of my own making
Founded on my genetic heirloom
Nurtured by my legacy of hurt

Yet love transcends
Both the imprint of god
And the impression of man
For she unveils an intangible world
A magical bounty of color
Mesmerizing your chambers
And infecting your soul

For love is the graffiti
On the wall of your heart
The advent of holi
To your fibrous vault
The bosom comrade of mirth
And the nemesis of darkness

Yet in spite of it all
She too summons blindness

To the color
Of another’s imperfection
