OF TWO MINDS AT ONE.

I dream in the color white

And waking leaves me speechless

Arrested by my own shadow, I

Do not recognize myself.

I am not cognizant of my scars

Nor am I revered by the memory

Of my hue.

Before I dreamt

I reached an agreement with the sun

He showed me the golden brown

That put me at ease

But I guess I dreamt too long

And dwelt in the land of slumber

For more hours than I was welcome

For when I woke, the sun was gone.

I dream in the color white

And waking leaved me speechless

This incessant ringing in my ears

Arrests me,

My melanin is restless.

Life's a party in a sunflower field. Even when we wilt, we are beautiful to behold.
