You were gray in my black-and-white world {15 July 2016}

Gray

You

You In this golden girl's black-and-white world

You In this golden girl's black-and-white world An outcast

You In this golden girl's black-and-white world An outcast A shadow quickly passing by

A stone kicked on

A stone kicked on Unwanted

A stone kicked on Unwanted Uninteresting

A stone kicked on Unwanted Uninteresting until

A stone kicked on Unwanted Uninteresting until until

A stone kicked on Unwanted Uninteresting until until until

Our story,

Our story, a mystery,

Our story, a mystery, was written on this scrap of Sunday paper

The blur in between time

The weather that day

The weather that day Hazy and lazy

I wanted to stay in bed

I wanted to stay in bed, But the rain was beautiful

I wanted to stay in bed, But the rain was beautiful, And so were you

Under-dressed

Under-dressed Damp short, curly, salt-and-pepper hair

Under-dressed Damp short, curly, salt-and-pepper hair A loose v-neck shirt

Old Skool Vans

Old Skool Vans Stomping on puddles

This concrete floor

This concrete floor This concrete heart

Peek through the cracks

Peek through the cracks, And you'll see

The inside is untouched

The inside is untouched The damage isn't skin-deep

The inside is untouched The damage isn't skin-deep Only hard things break

A break of sunlight

A break of sunlight Warm like a cup of Earl Grey tea

A break of sunlight Warm like a cup of Earl Grey tea From a rain cloud

A break of sunlight Warm like a cup of Earl Grey tea From a rain cloud With a silver lining

It was then that I realized,

It was then that I realized, Under the ash,

It was then that I realized, Under the ash, Behind the smoke,

It was then that I realized, Under the ash, Behind the smoke, Before the molds,

It was then that I realized, Under the ash, Behind the smoke, Before the molds, You were silver.
