Everyone Leaves In The End

I was green for your care,
Bled rouge for your blush,

What little certainty sanctioned
The hidden wonders
Of humble pleasures,

Blue drowned nerves
Shone through faded yellow hopes

All I wanted was acceptance,
To be seen as equal
In the eyes of those to whom I aspire,

Amethyst passions
Flood titian connections

Inspired comments
Became fleeting nothing, subdued
Ignorance of human hearts,

And the man in black shouts
In melancholy’s smokey scales

“Everyone I know goes away in the end…”

  1. I love Johnny Cash’s version of that song.

    And you can have it all, my empire of dirt…

    Powerful. As are you words.

    So much color to be explored between black and white.
