Colourless

When you walked away
You took all my colour with you
And left my heart stone cold grey
I have since forgotten how sunny yellow used to be
Or how cute cerise used to paint my life with joy
The blue never ending skies
And happy laughs
As we lay on green grass

That day!
Had I been told
You would be reason why
Red would mean blood instead of love
The reason why purple would colour pain instead of being the embodiment of pleasure
Pleasures of love – our love
Like it once did
Had I been told
Maybe i would have guarded my box of crayons a little closer
Because all I remember now is brown
The colour of the dirt on the curb you kicked me onto
When you turned and walked away
You left me colourless
