(dedicated to Miss A.)

by Nii Parkes

I just want to curl up in your brown
lose myself in you
feel the red flow inside you
see the whites of your eyes

I want to wrap myself in black
let your locks keep me
safe from the blues that keep us
seekin' green to pay up

I long to cast you in orange
like a day fading fast
and taste you like the juice
that flows from within

I need to hold you till the grey
clouds disperse
and the yellow sun appears

Hush honey
let me love you
