Gray

Borders and bridges and battleships,
The lies that slip from your slithering lips.

The color that taints your suffering and sorrow.
The smile you steal and the laughter you borrow.

The escape you make from the sadness that seeks you.
The vows you break and the loneliness that meets you.

[Hata Bildir]
