Colour and Monotone

Updated: Jul 30


You were colour and I was black and white,

We were always meant to be.

How could one be without the other?

You brought variety and I, balance.

We were perfect.


But you never thought that.

There was no perfect, but monotone for you

You saw in me what you couldn’t see in yourself

And you loved.

You loved with all your heart, my attempts to be grey

And I loved with all my heart, your hues.


But life loves death

And death loves lovers.

We were, till death did us part

And I still, am in search for my better half.


in search of colour for my monotone


At last, we are.

And oh how I longed for this!

How I longed to feel the colour drip from your skin onto mine.

How I yearned for the tint to seep into my dark, aching heart.


And now as we wrap ourselves around each other, the colours mixing,

I can only hope for my darkness to not stain forever, your unmatched beauty

.

.


You were black and white, and I was colour,

We were always meant to be.

I couldn’t think of life without you and didn’t want to.

You brought sanity, and I chaos.

We were perfect.


You always thought that. That we were perfect.

But to me, perfect was monotone, and I was not.

I saw in you what I could never be.

And I loved.

I loved with every inch of my being and you knew and loved too

Me, you for your greys and you, me for my hues.


But life loves death

And death loves lovers.

We were, till death did us part

And I hope you find what you seek.


The colour to your monotone.


At last, we are.

And I sense your longing, and I let it drip into my being.

I drink in the monotone that seeps from your soul into mine

I absorb every drop of you, into me.


And now, as we wrap ourselves around each other, our hues mixing,

I can only wish for us to be one.

As we were always meant to be.
