The Colour of Pain

If you cut me, won’t I bleed

And won’t my blood be red, just like yours

Not black, not brown, not white but red, as blood should be

If you twist my heart will it not crumble

And when it does will my soul not quiver

will it not explode in ten thousand deft shades

If you hurt me will I not cry

And won’t my tears be pure and crystalline

Not black, not brown not white but transparent as tears should be

If you hit me will I not feel pain

And won’t this pain be a colourless pain

Not black, not brown not white but blunt and bare as pain always is
