Standing out

Allowing everything to be seen

I am white

Pale and pure

Yet radiant

Contrasting every emotion

Having an innocent smile

And an invisiable heart

Fading into each day

No magnitiude, no size

Having only blankness

I have no thought

No answer, no question

I am like a powder

Blown away with a breathe

I am white

You find me under every feeling

Beneath every color

I lie



Dark like the night sky


At all times

Every feeling mixed together

I am black

Lost, standing still

Left to thicken

Turn to nothing

Set in the air

I make everything appear smaller


Endulging emptiness

Pull the covers over your head

And watch me, watch you


I am black

Close your eyes.
