Red, Blue, Grey

from Sunshine Remorse by Jon Hughes



My future heart —
In a dream she came;
Ribbons of colours down her wrists —
Red, blue, grey.

The silence cursed
Songs of my history;
A half-strung guitar that she plays,
And I know no words;
I follow the daisy chain
To nowhere first —
Drowning in metaphor —
Gonna speak real plain.

The silence choked
Rumours of mysteries;
Dreamt in the colours of sea,
Now I dream in code.
Work for the absence of the weight —
A lightweight soul;
Cling to the perception of the choice —
Gonna be real great.

Future heart —
Can't go back;
Ribbons of colours round her wrist —
Red, blue, black —
And it all goes black.
