Free Verse: A Black and White World

Black and White

In a black and white world
only outlined in shades of grey
no one answers with curious words
but go on about their day.

In a black and white world
all the questions have been answered
no need getting into a whirl…
ideas are considered a perilous cancer.

In a black and white world
the boat of our glorious dreams
sinks in the swamp of rules ensnarling
vaguely longing for forgotten sun-beams.

In a black and white world
even the smallest touch of color stands out
causing ideas to suddenly unfurl
blooming like a cactus after the drought.

In our black and white world
ideals and visions of long-lost prophets
guide us to the death of our imagination
leaving a hint of bitter moldering sand.
