― G.K. Chesterton

Tainted colors
Whisper by
Love to hold
Love to die

Tainted colors
Haunt your dreams
Love to lose
Love to find

Tainted colors
Call to the trees
Love that haunts
Love that frees

Tainted colors
From your heart
Love that lingers
Love to forge

Tainted colors
Call to me
For lovely endings
For lovely death.
