black

>> Monday, July 12, 2010


i have been peeking
into your dreams at night
you might have already
seen me, once, twice,
but i become faceless,
shapeless every time
before each and every
rude awakening
my name falling
not into your ears
but on the floor,
with your hand,
as it reaches down
for a cigarette lying
like a faithful dog
under your bed
and i'm gone with the first
puff.

i am what you might call,
the essence
that forms when
your restless thoughts
fight for space
in your brain
until all there is
is nothing and everything.
but you know me,
of that i am certain,
you allude to me
when you pray, or when
you think that death
has come for you, too
i may be your fears,
your desires, your bliss
i am the color
black.

Fun and Fearless July 22, 2010 at 3:10 AM  

The irony of black being everything (since it is equivalent to the presence of all colors) and nothing (because of the absence of light) strikes me as funny and deep to say the least.
