Because I Held Your Prism in my Eyes

Because I Held Your Prism in my Eyes

They asked me what color I would paint with
If I could only choose one.
I knew I'd paint the world with all of your color, but I could not.
Because your soul, burning crimson,
Filled with all of your passion and desire
Seemed too hot to touch
And too full of light to be safe for most eyes
And the kindled golden hue of your kindness and warmth
Could never be measured or mixed by my hands
(And I'll admit, I was too scared to show it
Lest I give it all away)
I almost picked the lime tint of your apparent spirit
So full of joy and wonderment
But I turned away knowing
Not all of your story could be found there
Cerulean, my favorite, was next on the list
It was the color that swam in your eyes (God, how I love those eyes)
But I remembered the secrets, the sadness, that thrived in those little oceans
And I put the brush down, tears misting my vision and clouding my thoughts
Then a violet hue was presented before me
And I thought of our love, of our hearts intertwined
In a purple so deep and moving
So secret and intimate that I found I couldn't disturb the paint's surface.
Instead I reached for white
And as I dipped my brush in and began to paint,
I knew I had shown it all
For when to others it seemed like the absence of life
I could see every color thriving in my masterpiece
