I’ve always been a sucker

For a lanky blue-eyed boy

But when first we met

And I looked into your brown eyes

I saw magic in them

Like that of a starry violet sky

Or a perfect pink dawn

When you held my hand

I melted into you

I loved your pale skin

Entwined with the milk chocolate of mine

We were a Hershey’s bar

Cookies and cream

You brought me out of the black

Filled me with resplendent yellows

With tame rosy reds

Like the color your ears turn

When you’re embarrassed,

Nervous, or inebriated

You’re such a lightweight, babe

But the clear blue horizon deceived us

The clouds came

Hid the stars from us

The dawn brought a day of rain

Now everything is shades of grey

When I look in your eyes

I cannot see the end of the story

You look sickly green
