sometimes i see in green

i see in blue, sometimes
and the world is a shallow lake
to comfortably drown in

i see in grey, sometimes
and the world is a deep ocean
cold and crushing in the dark

i see in orange, sometimes
and the world is the blazing sun
that burns the waters away

i see in red, sometimes
and the world is empty Mars
impotent anger beneath blood skies

but

sometimes i see in green
and life is lush and urgent
a fertile and consuming heart

life is a prism
that splits and scatters
until i am pieces against a wall
