we sat down in autumn and i asked you if you loved me,
you said no, and i looked away and then asked you again
you said you'd changed your mind and couldn't live without me.
i walked away, came back three weeks later and told you i couldn't breathe when you weren't around me.
two months later it was spring and you looked at me with those sad eyes.
you asked me if i loved you and i said yes with a smile but you didn't buy it and walked out anyway...
summer you showed up with flowers and told me that without me all of
the color in your world had faded to grey, and all you wanted was for
me to need you as much as you needed me to bring the color back.
i smiled, threw my arms around you and whispered in your ear,
'i don't need you anymore. but thanks, for the flowers..
dahlia's never looked such a pretty, vibrant shade of pink'
i slammed the door on your sad grey eyes and you walked away.
i threw away your grey flowers, looked around my empty grey house
and left you a message on your answering machine telling you i'd love you forever,
...but i'd rather be colorblind.
