Black was always your favorite color……….
Like the inkwell that beckons the pen
Like the night spangled with a million stars
Like the sleek machine your ego rides
Like the naked thoughts you dare not speak;
Black was the color you always chose……….
To draw attention in a crowd
To mask the splinters of your personality
To pave the way for wayward spirits
To separate you from the flock;
I was always attracted to the blackness……….
Of the color of your hair
Of those eyes that enticed me
Of the secrets deep within you
Of the magic that enthralled me;
But that was when I followed blindly
Down the path to my demise,
When I drowned a thousand times
Within the depths of those black eyes.
