Tinted

by raince

Think of me as a sheet of paper

Fill me with meaningful words

Or better yet, stare at me

In meaningful silence

 

Add a burst of color

Flaming red, placid blue, blinding yellow

Blend them with other emotions

And create something new

 

Add a dark hue

The decay of violet, how gray flickered like coal

Hide me under the shade

Shut my eyes tight

Blindfolded

 

Whisper to me your deepest secrets

Your screaming urges

Your quiet cries

Let me hear your own demons

Your smoldering pain

Ablaze me with your joys

Write to me your own name

 

Just let me be

Your piece of paper

I ask of you one thing

Never run out of ink.
