She Colours Her World

looking forward to spring

She often watched classic films
In black and white
Except her life wasn’t
Black and white
With shades of grey
How could
Be that woman
Dreamed she could be
In films
On that
Big screen
He tried to transpose
Into the
Big world
Where a lady is not a woman
But a girl
The size of the
Gap between
His thumb and finger
Sizing her up
Eyes linger
Until her knees buckle
As the result of fallen trees
She hoped to never be
To instead grow tall
Where he would embrace
A woman
Not a girl
We see in black and white films
But someone real
A woman in colour
A real woman
To colour
Not his
But hers
A beautiful world

About My Write To Read

It would be difficult to imagine a world without influential writers who broke down barriers and turned complex ideas into eloquent masterpieces. I hope to become one of those writers someday. There is still a lot to learn as much as there is to write about, but I know my passion for putting thoughts and opinions on paper will help me flourish into an independent thinker and writer. Sometimes we often place ourselves outside of the world, oblivious of the effects of change, but as a writer I am striving to submerse myself into the events, catastrophes, and activities that are a part of every day, in order to understand why things are the way they are. The world is my artist and my canvas is this blog, and you? You are my audience, observer, critic, and valued reader. My Blog:

    Firstly I’ve been wanting to say how much I like your blog’s new look. The old backdrop of the books made it a little difficult to read some of the comments. Anyways, for this poem I have but one word: WOW. This is simply your best. I don’t have words to describe what I’m feeling now. Incredibly good poem! 🙂
