Modern Love Affair 

This is all too much and the world is fading into a fast and furious blue. 

And you are red. Blood thirsty. Rich with anger. 

And I am gray. Steadfast but weak. 

I found you lifeless and unpurified. Like a white rose without water.

And you found me a muddy mix of brown. Knee deep in a broken curiosity.

You want everything. I want healing. You want to be fixed and I need a cure. 

I’m a bandit and you are the law.

You are vengeance and I am guilty.

I want you to hold me but all I know is your wrath. 

You’re a paintbrush and I’m the colorwheel. With every stroke you drain more of me.

I say I love you and you say you want to.
