We see what we want to see,
not what is there, what actually exists.
What we can touch, and be touched by, if we allowed ourelves to.
Reality is shaded in grey because the fear of
losing the colour outweighs any marvel at experiencing it.
Unless it is the discovery that such colours fall short
of any expectations the promise of seeing them held.
To dance on the border between the two is a dangerous act,
yet some people seem intent on trying.
That invisible barrier, darkness and illumination,
flitting from one into the other.
For the want of something to touch, this world remains in darkness.
