Red Rising

Colour has no light, no sound
no right to find the love it drowns
no flower girl to bring delight
nor appetite to mend the slight

Colour has the right to reign
to bring all hours to the flame
from moons to stars to eldritch tongues
cause enough to fight the rain

Colour brings no tears to fall
to round the mountains of the law
physics bend and break at will
as we light the spectrum wall

Colour brings what music won’t
to lift the lies right out from those
that fight defiantly and pause
when colours come to meet with prose

Colours run as eyesight wanes
when all the beauty starts to fade
dreams collide in emerald lanes
and all the fools return to play

Colours run away and go
as my lover longs to know
the reason I have hidden far
in the midday afterglow

of all the Colours we have found
none compare to love and sound
no descriptions lie in sight
to bring a view of those around

of all the Colours I have seen
none compare to evergreen
or Red, the hue of love’s domain
without her, I cannot be Rain
