Black Is

black is…
the color of the ocean floor
the color of the deepest well
the color of a witch’s cat
the color of a lover’s spell

black is…
the color of infinity
the color of a new-moon night
the color of secrecy
the color of a dream that never takes flight

black is…
the color of a broken heart
the color of a demented mind
the color of an empty life
the color left behind

black is…
the color I breathe
the color I see
the color I taste
the color that owns me

for black is…me

  1. ‘Black is the color left behind’

    That really stuck in my head. There’s a lot more to that than what initially comes across.

      Thanks…I tend to cram a lot into as few words as possible where poetry is concerned.
