Another day, another poem.

I painted my bedroom ceiling midnight blue
so we could pretend to watch the stars
while we are lying awake during the night
imagine that we are flying through the neverending universe
to a place both of us deserve

but then you said how much you are afraid of the unknown
so I painted it into a dark orange
to match the sunset where we first shared our kiss
the memory seems so far from now
but I remember the color on your cheeks
and they were red, matching the rose I gave you

but then you said how much you love black
so I painted it black
discovering how many secrets you hide beneath that masque
tell me how many of them I still have to unmask
until I finally see the real you
