has seen colour, for the first time.
seen the flurry of emotion,
seen colour, now begging colour:
begging for more colour from the world.
pick me apart and bleed me colour:
blue eyes and blue blood and red lips and red heart
and sand and sky and grass and screaming sea -
and colour, touch me
paint me, dress me up
and colour, save me
turn white to black
and ash to blood.
and give the snow the colour it begs you
silk and glass and diamonds, dripping
feathers and ash and colour, colour them
colour dig up emotions
where a body is emotionless,
and speak colourful words
where silver tongues speak reckless,
fill me up where this mind
and colour this girl like snow, in.
