All I Know is White

In the months that have passed,
All I think is grey
In the days that drag on
All I feel is black
In the seconds that tick by
So slow and antagonizing
All I know is whit
Blank nothingness
Because all color has seeped from the world
Bleached away with your death
Nothing remains
Run together
No, not even that
It would mean I still feel
Still see the colors
If only muddied and swirled together
Only three hues
Have remained at my side
The black of darkness
The grey of bleakness
and the white of nothingness
No more
Thoughts
Feelings
All I know
Is white

I love your comparisons of color to your emotion.

I absolutely appreciate the passion and intense feelings that practically bleed through your work. Keep it up! :)

thanks so much. it's about my grandma. she died of cancer in January this year, and there are times when i juststart feeling really depressed about it, though I know that she's not gone,  just not here anymore.

I am so sorry to hear that, I am sure she would appreciate this poem just as much as I did, probably even more.
