Colored pencils fall down
The teacher slips and falls down
Hollers all abound!

Some claim the world is black and white
And some, the other way.
E. L. James saw middle ground,
And wrote "Fifty Shades of Grey."

The title of the book suggests
A new perspective, but,
Turns out, the plot from start to stop
Is teenage fan-fic smut.

Can you see it? There:
Solus, it is nothing. Else,
They define our world.

Where did my prey go?
Here one moment, gone the next.
Hypnotizing horse.

Stars fall deep into
midnight pools of ice.
The snowy moon
slices the night and
white-hot frost spills
free. Stars flow to
embellish a world
that swallows all
sound and color.

My submission. :)

Boast for the Blind

I, a soliloquy, and of relish joyousness
Bare on to thee, with finesse and restlessness
The spectrum of colors to whom it surpasses
A blunt form of knowledge and all of it's classes

Veraciously brought enlightenment, true
Figuratively, overwhelmingly: blue
Humbly crackled of gestures to hue
I bring you back and lecture, so due

God never gave you the ability of sight
You cannot see and this, this isn't alright
But don't leave your mind a feint at night
For there is nothing to love but the light,

And everyone knows, it's all Black and White.

The Two Ancestors

In this world of pain
the colors give faith
but without the ancestors
the color will have not the answers.

The black gives darkness
the light gives brightness
with these two the world is in greatness.

Now you know
let's go and bow
and let them pass through.

Day in, day out

Before dawn, I look at her
I am in black and white.
I leave and come back
Perpetual cycle
After dusk, I look at her.

I have never lived my life,
but I get to look at her.
