when colour fades
from red to white
they disappear
and they melt
away with the water
falling down my face
diluted and distilled
like the dilated pupils I see you through
when I look at you
when colours change
from silver to blue
the false platinum pools
over my hands
like the dirt that remains
on my fingertips
from not touching you
