No Shades of Gray

Updated on February 16, 2011

She didn’t know why she felt so sad

Tears came and she couldn’t understand

There was a feeling inside of her that

She couldn’t seem to touch

No matter how hard she tried to

Understand and connect

Was she missing something, someone

She took the sadness with her to

Bed and awaken with it each morn

Wrapped in the arms of an emotion

She couldn’t describe only to say

It never left her and everyday

She carried it, becoming more a part of her

For some great sin was this her price

To be cursed always with this

Sadness inside of her

She couldn’t get drunk enough

Ingest enough pills there was

No relief for the ill feeling

She lived with

Turning to sex only increased her pain

What was left?

The louder the sound of voices in

Her head deeper the pain she was in

Sadness damned her and took

Over her existence

So I guess you could say her world lost all

Color and in the end all she saw was black

No shades of gray

      I LIKED IT kinda heavy for me...but i understand about the colors leaving and only black white remain-

      I believe that the BnW view of life can be numbing and rough and draining-
