When we met, my eyes were green with envy with how
you looked at her.
You soon stained the white that was my innocence.
You fell for the way my blood would race red when our

My body would light up so bright that we didn’t need the
moonlight to find our way through the sheets.
Your bedroom had become our own personal canvas.
My heart had melted with yours and I was drenched in
Never had I thought that my shade would match perfectly
with your own.
You were Michelangelo dipping you paintbrush and
splashing the walls with our sinful chapel.

I had left space for you in my heart but you only left space
for me on your wall of art.
For I will ever be is an extra space in your gallery.
