Grey

Grey
Under the colour of my eyes
Lies
Each day, a new part of me dies
Cry
The soft piano riff of tears
Try
To escape the void, yet still I stay
Grey.

White
The colour of the arms I’ve drained
Sight
Not to be seen but by me, sleeves even in summer
Night
Is when it’s all coming back to me
Fight
When the dawn breaks, I form a smile to begin my day
Yet underneath it all
Grey.

Around me
The people I want to be well for; their loving graces
Surround me
So it still being there
Confounds me
The pain, it
Drowns me
I wish it would all go away
Grey.

Work
Occupies me, papers, files, cups of tea
Play
Fulfils me materially
Way
To dull the sharp ache in my head for
Today
But tomorrow I’ll wake, and I know it’ll be
Grey.

Grey
Reflected in my tears for years
Why
Can’t people see
What I hide so brilliantly
I should have told you
Why
I should have said
Goodbye
There is another way
To leave behind the grey.

Maybe the colours will find me as I
Die.
