“O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention.”
-William Shakespeare.


Without you,
My world is dull with the color gray.
The sky gray.
The earth gray.
The plants and water gray.
The sun is nonexistent.
But with you,
My world is alive with color!
The sky an endless blue.
The plants have the green
And the earth a beautiful brown.
The water a magnificent shade of blue-green.
But when you leave,
My life will return to that disgusting shade of gray
That it was before you dared to take
A glimpse of my life.

This is a very sweet poem =) life seeming gray without someone is a great way to describe the feeling. I like how you made choppy sentences like "the sky gray. the earth gray." I also think that these choppy parts would be even better if you made the sentences surrounding them flow more so there's more contrast. All in all, a great poem!
