“Black and White”

An idea I’ve been working on for awhile. Exploring a colorless world with my words.

“Black and White”

You bring the light, I’ll bring the rain
Breaking days to meet beneath the grey

Hold me up in shadowed lands
I’ll fly above the ravens
Burning sand and broken glass,
Cleanse me in your bleeding ink
Removed from something clear,
You’re standing too near;
Charcoal tears stain the lungs

You bring the light, I’ll bring the rain
Breaking days to meet beneath the grey
Words rising above to fall below
Phantom hands in hand that won’t let go

Drown me in sweet ashen snow
I’ll float down to the bottom
Hoping for a silver glow
Something’s hidden in the ice
What’s waiting for you here
Is nothing to fear;
Old ghosts can’t hold the sun

You bring the light, I’ll bring the rain
Breaking days to meet beneath the grey
Words rising above to fall below
Phantom hands in hand that won’t let go
