A Splash of Color

How do we escape

this beautiful trap we have made?

We always complicate

the little things.

I was inspired

by your face,

it shone with promise

I could never equate.

I built a palace

for your pain.

An indiscretion,

I know;

one of many.

You were a violet

in my ivory tower.

I couldn’t banish you,

so I left here,

another exile.

What is it about us,

that we always create


we need to be rescued from?

What is it about you

that drives me to make

the most wonderful,





HG – 2020
