The color wheel keeps all my failures in a binder.

Okay, so I'm actually proud of this one. That's rare. Usually I just toss them up here for the fun of it. But this one...this one I like. Humor me.

Gray by me

Red is anger
Don't wanna be caught in the middle of that again.
Blue is familiar -
A reminder of every place I've been.

Every shade is a constant reminder.
The color wheel
Keeps all my failures in a binder.

When I see green
It reminds me of emeralds
I couldn't hold on to,
Lost long ago.
When I see yellow,
It reminds me of another
I should have held on to,
The one I let go.
Colors drained from my life,
Nothing's ever black and white.

Brown's the color
Of the ground on which I'd often sleep.
Pink the complexion
Of a love I was never able to keep.

Every tint assures I'll never forget.
It's like the rainbow
Holds a pot of shame at the end of it.

When I see green
It reminds me of emeralds
I couldn't hold on to,
Lost long ago.
When I see yellow,
It reminds me of another
I should have held on to,
The one I let go.
Colors drained from my life,
Nothing's ever black and white.

I see gray,
Let the brilliance drift away.
I pray I don't drown
In this sea of shades.
Let that spectrum brighten someone else's day.
I see gray.

I see gray,
Let the brilliance drift away.
I pray
I don't drown
In this sea of shades.
Let that spectrum brighten someone else's day
While I see gray.

Colors drained from my life.
Nothing's ever black and white.
I see gray.
