The Colors of Love

Surrounded by a sea of black-n-gold
Speckled with portraits of a rapid growing family
Steeler-mania to some but to me the ideal home
Screaming of black beauty, black pride and black value
Unfortunately, not related by blood
Luckily, claimed as one of their very own

Waiting impatiently by the phone for love
Depending on your problem-solving to alleviated the dilemma
BBBRRIIINGG! It’s finally you-ok here goes…
A panicked child-like voice quivers
Struggling to make sense so speaking hypothetically
Anything to avoid saying the two most dreaded words
Past conversations prove a contrast of beliefs-you: pro-life, me: pro-choice
A stale-mate but today one last move must be made

“Who is pregnant?”
Your guilt and fear louder than the question
An instant revelation of the ultimate betrayal
Those three words erupted an armageddon inside my heart
Transparent boulders plunged from my eyes
Anger boiled my blood from your lies
Shame invaded my lungs-no more air supply

My hero, my love, my breath
Squandered our cherished moments with her
And would now be the proud father of two?!
Only shattered glass for this picture frame
As I am left desolate-n-dark
Drowning in an abyss of devastation
