    Colors Bleed

    As I gaze into the mirror
    A vibrant visage screams to be freed.
    I start to see myself much clearer
    As I watch my colors bleed.

    Now the world looks so abstract
    Surrounding me, the absence lay.
    All quite contrived, to be exact
    Why did the colors fade away?

    My footprints stamp the ground in teal
    Before they wither into dust.
    A monochromatic bestial
    Is tarnishing my skin with rust.

    My crimson hands have lost their touch
    My amber hues have been diluted.
    My emerald eyes don’t see that much
    I feel my spectrum is polluted.

    Then I spot a lavender trail
    Like a beacon amidst the void.
    It shows me life can still prevail
    And not all colors are destroyed.

    With my colors all but dead
    I found what I’d been searching for.
    With much avail, the trail had led
    Me to a girl of colors yore.

    Her eyes dripped shades of indigo
    That swirled with skin of harvest gold.
    She exhaled with a pinkish glow
    Yet her demeanor felt so cold.

    With silver hair, and vacant stare
    She poured out in a wistful plea.
    My baited breath, became aware
    When her plum lips said to me –

    “I’ve been wandering for so long
    But all I see is gray emptiness.
    In this abyss, I don’t belong
    I sense you share my loneliness.”

    “Ever since my eyes did shine
    And tangerine tones began to leak.
    I’ve longed to find a soul like mine
    But why do your colors look so bleak?”

    Her inquiry was much expected.
    Although our tales were similar
    My colors had been more affected;
    So as we bled, I said to her –

    "I’m left bereft and tinted gray
    I won’t survive in this world much longer.
    I’m glad I found you on this day
    For you bleed colors so much stronger."

    “You’re the one I truly need.
    There’s just one thing I ask of thee.
    As I watch your colors bleed
    Won’t you please bleed into me?”
