He lives in colourblind splendour.He bathes in the pool of lukewarm promises.He basks in the flickering glow of intention.
She endures blinding colour.She bathes in the waterfall of betrayal.She wallows in the shade of deception.

As much as your work is beautiful, I would still hoe you get some sleep young lady!! ;p! Nice one Leia!
“hope” not hoe!! Aaarrggh! hehehe!
Interesting, I like it.
hoe, like a garden hoe haha.
I’ll have to think about this poem for a while- poems take me ages to translate.
Calum, you stitched me up mate!! LOL! Thank goodness Leia has a wonderful sense of humour!!
I tend to over-complicate things sometimes….I’ll translate for you…this one is a ficticious story of a relationship where he wants to be the person he is supposed to be to make her happy, but he doesn’t want it enough to actually deliver. The funny thing is that he doesn’t actually cheat on her (as many would interpret) because i didn’t state that it was HIS betrayal or deception. It is her betrayal however this hurts her more than it ever hurts him, because she is the one that cuts more deeply (i.e. endures blinding colour) and he is unfeeling/numb to a certain extent. Which is ultimately better for him.Maybe i shoulda left it to the eye of the reader?
Wow, you’re beautiful and deep!!! ;p!
The first thing that came to mind is be is cheating on her :(
Hi Leia, such a great binary created by the imagery in this poem. And it’s good to be sneaky, it keeps people on their tippy toes!
PS, I’m annoyed that Chaos #1 and Chaos Resistance #2 didn’t feature on the homepage, when some inane stuff about toe flossing or something is sometimes featured there!
