Shades of Gray
As fall creeps in this moonless night
Bright colors dim to shades of gray
My thoughts are thin
My heart can't stay
Within the confines of this day.
Reflection peeks upon my soul
Of days long gone, and
Souls once known.
I seek to find the one whose touch
Made parts of me as hard as stone,
And others soft as brittle bone.
I hide sometimes, behind this smile
Seeking knowledge--thoughts a pile
Rich emotion in your gaze, your words, your thoughts, your style.
Sit with me, we'll talk a while,
And ponder shades of gray.
