Suffocating black as the night sky

though I know it to be a lie

refrscted light subdued

by lifewaters darkened hues.

Splotched purple neath my skin

your gracious patience wearing thin

claiming I belond to you

fiery stare that flays me through.

Ochre power in my lungs

running over this lying tongue

steal away my silly dreams

finding what strength really means.

Rusty brown drying slow

if I dont believe I'll party below

contrarian spirit running free

your fears will never sleep with me.

Magenta fills these savvy hands

destroying yet another span

of time better used to learn

that one day soon I'll get my turn.

Final red that I stole

from scorching yet another bowl

spurning what you thought was love

sending you to tyrants above.
