Today's post is a poem I wrote.
A million shades of Crimson
How can something so beautiful be grey?
It is a million shades.
Of colours that don't have a name
And of colours that do.
How can something so dazzling
Be defined by or confined to
Relationships formed with people
Which society likes to give a name to
In a quest to understand.
Marriage, husband, wife, In-laws.
Within the confines of those narrow spaces
Bursts forth a certain something.
Magnificent in its splendor.
Something you only feel.
Something more precious than life itself
A myriad colours
And a million shades of Crimson.
