Pomegranate, denim, lavender

Swirling, melting, enticing


Behind this mask of vibrant shades

lies a compromise of black and white


Hindering the tint from seeping in

we deny the darker hues


For a single drop of midnight paint

taints this flawless stream


Once these colours begin to bleed

our lavish façade will fade and recede
