NaPoWriMo: 1 (colours)

in the dark
of night,
you tell me your
true colours.

blue, you say,
for serenity and peace.
red,
for vitality and passion.
yellow,
for happiness, liveliness.

(you are a 
shapeshifter. i
just have yet 
to learn it)

so you paint a
rainbow
and condescend
when clarity is sought.

(one night, you 
forget to set
your alarm)

day spills in and
the harsh light is
unkind to you.

you are not
red-blue-yellow.
you are grays and
muddied white.
every colour you selected
darkens and blurs.
now, you are
far less interesting
than before.

and this,
i believe.
