Where Is Grey - Poem by Dale Barnes

I knew you in Black and White.

You were Once So Real.

The way you Were.

But I know you Best in Color…

I got lost in your Blue,

The Sky Lit Hue of so Many Whores.

Eyelids. Makeup. Lust.

How Simple it Seems.

Desires and Dreams,

In the Lost and found.

I couldn’t Imagine it was You.

I watched your Face lose It’s innocence.

When you weren’t looking.

I watched you looking the other way…

I saw your longing. Looking…

Down un-Reasonable Roads.

Paths without Passion.

Paths without Reason.

That was my Vision.

Your Decision.

I just wanted You in Black and White.

Here and Now,

But then…that would be...

To Much to offer.

Too Much to afford Someone,

That Dreams in Colors.

As I stumbled down My Grey Road...

I meant to be Real,

Less Colorful.

Less Wanting to be Wanted.

Probably I shouldn’t have been so…

Black and White.

I Should have imagined you in Color…

From the Start.

Then, I wouldn’t have had to deal with,

The other Hues…

Rainbows...The lost Greys...

Something less than the Moon.
