Take it in pain
I'm dancing within colours
Shades of colours so bright and beautiful
But I dance from complimentaries
And opposites become resentful.
Many arms hold me tight, some slip away
But I'm pulled, and pulled, into grey.
The colours on the other side slowly fade to black
And when I reach to get them back
I'm pushed behind my back
Drowning into them.
My eyes turn to green in a red sea,
The colours slowly start taking over me.
My cells growing so many shades, I'm no longer black,
But I just want "Me" back…
I look over my glowing body in horror and fear
My eyes are drawn from colour to colour, my skin burns as I look away
I can't see every one of them; they're too small for my fading eyes
They want my attention, and I can't disobey.
My skin peels, rainbow blood pouring from my ripping veins
Can't you see I'm in pain?!
Is this too hard for me to explain?!
Giving me this mental strain?!
I'm not fucking insane!
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO GAIN?!
I look down to my white skin
The colours have drained
I'm a blank canvas.
The colours were painful…
But they were friends… keeping me bright...keeping me happy…
I should have taken the torture…
Taken it in pain…
But I had to complain.
I'm a blank canvas…
