i once fell in love with a colorblind boy
who couldn’t distinguish between red and orange

for this colorblind boy i once felt so sorry
he was missing out on such vibrancy
and then i realized the invalid was me
everyone can see something someone else
can’t see

such vibrancy

just remember this next time you might
and he’ll rock you so close to try to soften the ache
he’ll raise you on a throne; of his world, you’ll be king
don’t try to understand what you’re missing
i know as i watch you struggle
to see
to be
to free
finally relax and just breathe
it’s there.  believe me.
