Salummy's Poems

Don’t paint me in black

I loved you when the sun was rising,

I still love you now when the storm is hard.

I look at you in my dreams,

and find myself alive.

One thing you have not assured me is,

if you are here to stay.

For the last time we were together,

you painted me in plain.

I told you about the tales,

the tales of my heart.

How much it gives me stories,

of you and I and us.

But why do you not assure me,

that we will still be one?

In happiness, in sadness and even

throughout my life.

Are they threatening you?

Are they blackmailing you?

Are they asking you to leave me for…?

Someone younger than I?

Someone more beautiful?

Someone more amazing?

But one thing I seek of you is a direct answer,

an answer to the question that has bugged me,

Killed my soul,

Stole my existence,

Honey, please do anything but never,

Never paint me in black.
