Black & White

Image from White & Black & White on tumblr

There’s something about black and white that feels like home

The strong contrast between light and dark

or maybe the infinite sum of gradient greys

Maybe it’s the blending of each tone into another

almost like their one but still definite lines stay pure

If I were a black and white painting

I wouldn’t want to be a portrait or a still

I want to be a complex mix of every shade of tone

I would want to evoke emotion in the depths of your souls

but bring hope to the most hopeless with unending brightness

Maybe grey will be the best of all

transporting eyes to look back at themselves and see that nothing is clear

nothing is hopeful nor desolate

Really aren’t we all grey in a black and white world?
