It's Pinkness I Need

Pinkness I need neither white nor red,
Sleepiness I wish, neither living nor dead,
Loose grip of conscious, by a hard touch if it is raped,
So soft is my unconscious, it will be reshaped,
I am afraid my subconscious will suffer most,
Nightmares I may face with a terrifying ghost.

When the dawn broke it was a friend, I admire,
Sharing a pink write and promising pink dreams tonight,
Arresting the ghost who had enchanted my fairy, now free,
Smiled and hoped, pink songs, pink dances, in a pink flush light.

    Pinkness I need neither white nor red, ...
    My memories go back to my schooldays and to chemistry lab.
    Titration. A little more and you have transcended far beyond, not reached.
    A little less and you are too far still.
    Good one.
