Last night I dreamt of you
I dreamt you long-haired and walnut pigmented
I dreamt you short haired and pastel stained
I dreamt you all the shades of the rainbow and monochrome
I tried to mould this you to a memory, but the canvas blurs
and suddenly I can’t trace your face
the colours merge to form a new shade of black
a new shade of black, a new shade of dark
there’s too much darkness
A new dark shade dark
darker darker darker
even darker. Where did you go?
You left on the cold steps of my imagination. Don’t go don’t go don’t go don’t go don’t go and
scraped my knees on daydreams and cried out illusions
eyes stung as I awoke in reality.
Awoke to a you I did not know.
