My conscience crimsons when the sun comes up

And turns cerulean late at night.

Your hair’s the colour of given-up love —

Reluctant, with desire locked twice too tight.

Are words worthwhile? Well, they’re all I have

To give and take, create and spend;

Give you a piece of my mind, cut in half

And hope it puts you on the mend.

Like what you read? Give Creighton Budris a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
