in this colour palette of life, you are a vibrant, bold hue,
and you tell me i shouldnt be
the muted pastel that i am.
if we are music to be played,
you are the pop song featured on the radio,
and i am just the acoustic version.
find us on the dance floor, and see that you are
the waltz or the salsa or the tango;
im only the slow dance you dont care to watch.
people would describe you as
loud, flashy, vivid – me as
gentle, subdued, enigmatic.
but together, we are
chaos and calm,
entropy and equilibrium.
