Born To Be The Colour Dead

Empty, Not dead

Late morning early dusk, no one else around to hear the baby crying so robust

mother can you hear the angry sobs from within the nights score of trudgery doom

how can you say i was born the colour dead when yuu know full well each night as you lay in your bed

a heart is broken somewhere else and many more will follow when you tell the truth

my heart is not the colour of dead yet it feels totally broken every night i lay without sleep

do they know yet about this colourful lie

the one you told for your own reasons why

no one knows cept you and your departed love

what reason could there be for something so guttless

i form no malice no anger just pain for only one reason, only sorrow came

to hear you had i was born dead from your womb

yet 5 minutes after my birth you knew and to name me probably with a smile and a tear

why did you tell them this lie, i were the colour of dead

when you would know it would one day be known even to me

the one you said had been born the colour of dead

was really living just sold

i wish you well and love peace and kindness although my heart is blank now

yet want to know why of me this lie

was what you had said instead that i was adopted

cos now i do feel it

numb like the colour of dead

I'm on 2 days with no sleep and I won't even begin to act like I have any clue what you are talking about. My most vague guess would be something having to do with abortion.Oh I can't think anymore my brain is hurting,lol.

no, i hear what you're saying bout the no sleep bit tho, am over not being able to sleep cos of body pain. i guess i should have put the right word in there. kinda wrote it with me eyes closed and didn't even bother to edit it. which i have done now. prob shouldn't have it on here, it's just an expression.

i'm not actually this open with people. i prefer to keep myself to myself

..keep writing from your heart and the mind will follow - and most importantly - just keep doing what you're doing - and pursue your own creative language - which of course makes you truly unique and special in your own way!
