Poem: “It Was All Yellow”

4 minutes and 26 seconds

the world is quiet
black and white

until i put my headphones in
and “look at the stars”

and the black and white turns yellow,
pale blue, and sage green

i’m in the stars
“look how they shine for you”

they shine so bright
they drown the silence
the empty
the quiet

you fill my world with color
my noise with music
I’m suspended in time

and for 4 minutes and 26 seconds
my life is whole again
