The world is grey

You stand in colour, I gaze black and white,
Subconsiously idolising your pessimistic overview.
I stare for a while, those mirror glass tears again haunting.

Your shirt unbuttoned a tad, your eyes filling.
I feel the boil, the lust, love?
In the mean time the world stops rotating.

unbutton my 'love', undress my passion, uncover your innocence.
Like a single snowfake in a black sky
we stand out, both longing to be loved.

The scene is set and the colour becomes more vivid,
I have colour to, and yet the world is still grey.
we illuminate this dark existance, we bring more light than this candle.

pull back your green sleeve's, open you arms.
let the black and white out and allow your liver to feel.
'I think were in love'... I dont have a clue, but neither do I care

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
