Brilliant red

I painted my heart's walls a solid grey,
That nothing could sink through,
And it would be strong enough to stay,
The same as always,
And I never looked beyond the window panes,
Never saw the scarlet of the flowers blooming outside,
Never saw the cerulean blue of the skies,
That did not threaten to pour with rain,
Until you came,
And then it changed,
Gone the familiar,
Gone the constant,
Never again the usual things I did or said,
And on the wall it began,
As a splotch of colour,
Brilliant red on a background,
As solid as my life used to stay.
