The Shades of You


I was living in a black and white world.
Each image of life seemed to be printed in grayscale.
Then you came along.
And the white shades entered a prism and came out as a rainbow.
Sunflower yellows appeared as we laughed louder than necessary.
And deep ocean blues as we mumbled sleepy conversations with the smallest of grins laced into each word.
Vibrant reds burst around us as we locked eyes and told each other exactly what we felt without opening our mouths.
So many colors showed themselves it seemed as though we created our own.
The black still remains, as it is still a color.
And the gray hues too.
At times it was darker; more charcoal showed than orange.
But most of the time, the dull undertones were used to make shadows.
Giving the picture more definition.
