Mauve

I forgot ho to have fun

How to live life with l'esprit you get from wearing rose colored glasses.


I picked mine up the other day

only to find that they were

shattered


I put them on anyway


And as the cracked glass fell onto the apples of my cheeks

staining them with a violent blush

I realized my efforts were in vain


You see, it's impossible to be a carefree rose

when the darkness creeps with you are every step

waiting for you to forget.

And like a looming shadow it's a constant reminder that though you may be a rose

the world does not see you that way


Fuck that. I am going to make myself an new pair of glasses...

a mauve tone to accommodate the existing darker hues of reality


Yes. I think intentional respites in mauve will do.

Allowing for a full breath of view.


Shadows and light with a hint of color


And maybe I didn't forget how to have fun after all...


I'm just refraining it.
