Images For Android Phones: A Window In A Dark Room

Painting in one color
A black as dark as coal
So dark it feels endless

It’s time to pick another color
Or look out a different window
Catch a thought or two

See things in another light
As the room collapses
Like falling cards

Entangled with the other’s calling
Like the dream that’s always falling

The blue sky outside
And my blurry eyes … blinking
Can’t save me from inside
The dark room in which I reside.
