My face is weeping with long streams of tears stringing down

In a rainbow of colours I am crying for my lover

I cry orange for his love of life and

I cry pink for his sweet smell like peonies and

I cry green for the new sprouting plants I watered and

I cry a deep dark purple for the way he held me and

I cry and he holds me in an embrace as warm and rich as the

Mediterranean Sea and who really know what colours the Greeks

It’s a question I don’t know the answer to and I am crying while

The painted face I dragged over my own cracks as it dries and

Washes away in the endless rain of tears I am crying for you
