Colorless Love - Poem by Dee Ha_

They say the world would be boring
If everyone and everything was all the same
Color brings excitement to the world
But I am colorblind and cannot see
And I love my colorless world
I think that it is beautiful

But is there a thing as colorless love
Where two people can sit unaware
of the color of their lovers skin
and only notice the smile on their face

I am colorblind, but one day that changed
When I, who loved someone,
Strong and handsome
Yet so sensitive, needing someone to lean on
And I, colorblind, thought that someone could be me
But is there a thing as colorless love?
He sure didn't think so, pale in the face he looked to me and said
'I'd never date a black girl.'
And with that he broke my heart

His words were my glasses
They allowed me to see
A little more color so the next time
I could be a little more careful
So again I fell in love with
A man with dark features and an even darker heart
Intrigued by his smoothe manner and his beautiful smile,
I confessed my love to him
He turned to me his mouth a black hole and said,
'You're not black enough.'
And he too broke my heart

In fifteen years never have I seen
A colorless love worthy of me
Is there a such thing as colorless love?
Or is it something that one could only dream of
Either way I still believe that one day
A man as color blind as me
Will tell me I am beautiful,
Unleashing me to a whole new world of color
Where I can look into the mirror and see
My dark eyes and auburn smile,
But when I look to my love
And see a colorless child.

Is there a thing as colorless love?
Only the color blind can experience a colorless love
Not the love of everything being the same
But a love of everything being different.
