Before you, I was shades of grey
I didn’t know the warmth of the sun’s caress on a summers day
Before you, a plum was just a plum
A song, just a song.
Colours were dull.
And music was monotone.
Before you, I didn’t know love
I didn’t know pain
I didn’t know longing.
Before you, I didn’t even know my heart’s name.
I was numb
I was cold
A shadow, walking amongst the living
Before you, before you…
I was black and blue.
And love was just a feeling.
