The Outline of My Lover

I used to dream in black and white but now I dream in color  
It used to be that every cloud hid it's silver lining behind shadows  
But now even the darkest of clouds expose the outline of my lover  
While pain has died in a silver noose that dangles from my gallows  

I have waited all my life for a light to shine where none had ever shown  
To warm my heart by a fireplace glowing from the embers of my soul  
They'd grown so cold I was sure that I had not learned all that I've known  
That snow flakes on my heart concealed nothing more than an empty hole  
I was lonely in ways that fooled the fools who never knew me  
And the ones who did could not see the cloud that had no lining  
For hidden inside me was a man who could not set the darkness free  
Embracing emptiness to form delusion's fog of grand designing  
At first you tried to shatter myths I had molded into gods  
Who would not show the silver that could expose you as my other  
Till darkness painted a rainbow from gold blinding my demigods  
In lonely times I dreamt in black and white but now I dream in color
