Grey feathers

Updated on July 16, 2013

Raindrops on fireflies..
Covered hues under the mist..
Of pretence that tries..
To escape the gist..

A mirage of beauty..
Bleeds into a shallow shell..
For the wand follows it's duty..
Until the ground rings a bell...

A bird caged in addicted love..
Sheds feathers to fly..
A lost battle tried fitting the glove..
Until the final goodbye..

A tale of grey roots..
Aiming high to fill the colour..
A monochrome canvas shoots..
Until the words went blur..
