black and white

I stare at the black and white form
it's a tick-all-the-right-boxes type of form
we both know I won't colour outside the lines
not on this form
not in those boxes
I care too much
about words you'll speak
that I'll never hear

You hold all the balloon strings
and I wish you'd let those bubbles of air go
that you'd pop them
or bite them
or light them on fire
in them you see you whole life
you don't believe me
when I tell you they're just bubbles of air

So I tap the required black ball point pen
against the required black and white form

I wish you'd colour outside the lines
