Black and White Rainbows

Twist another love scene.
This oblivion is my own
Sing to me -- insomniac lullabies
in a sleepless city;
poised to play its part in this tragedy
of custard creams and almostkisses

Chase the sunrise until it fades
into monochrome.
Laughing breathlessly, raise your head
and marvel at the lustre of the stars.

So let's lie(live) awake, love,
and watch the skyline dissolve into
infinity.

You're such a paradox
to me.
