Primrose amber

The shadows play tricks on our eyes

brushing over them

in scarlet and mead

and can we bear to live without that bliss?

No, we need the violet and the rose

These scents that surround

in a myriad of color

We thrive on these moments

these bits of circles

this beauty

because it is all we have

these moments of life

frozen in time

trapped in the amber

of this colourless world

    I really love the use of color (or lack thereof) here, and also appreciate your ability to come up with great endings.
