#coloryourworld 0203 black #cyw #poetry

I have totally failed to keep up with this challenge. I never intended to use photos for every color… I wanted to post all sorts of different things. But life has a way of jumping up and down so quickly and violently that I derailed. Crash.

This little comeback may last just the one day… today… because I couldn’t skip this color…

Color Your World… BLACK

Disclaimer for the poem:
I wrote this when I was in a very bad place. While this did come out of me and it is a place I do, unfortunately, visit now and then, I’m not completely there right now. It was just perfect for ‘black’… 

What do you do
When loneliness prevails?
When you know
You will never
Feel complete?
When you know
It doesn’t even matter
Because it’s too late for you?

What do you do
When you can’t leave
But you don’t want to stay?
When it hurts to fight
But you must go on?
When you question
Every single thing
You’ve ever wanted?

What do you do
When you feel like
You’re life’s a failure?
When you search and search
But can’t find light?
When all that’s left
Of your heart
Is cold black dust?


black hearts.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  2. Perfectly perfect for black. Tough, to read the words. But perfect, nonetheless. 😊😊

  4. Definitely black, and definitely good poetry. Heading away from black is great, for one thing you have to proceed through a few shades of grey, and you’ve done that in some recent posts. I hope to see you moving through the blues and towards the pastel colours soon.

    Your writing is a personal snapshot of who you are, and each piece is unique and beautiful.

    I hope you’re in a better place today, and thank you for sharing yourself. It’s not an easy thing to do.
