Midnight Mystry

Abstract Romance


Different Shades...

Different Shades...

2 mins 238 2 mins 238

Countless flowers and chocolate brown

Romance had engulfed the entire town

Romeo and Juliet were roaming hand in hand

It was a great day to be alive in an enchanted land

But in an abandoned house where no one went


Lost in each other's eyes were Johny and Trent

Creating their own beautiful paradise

Inside the same closet where so many secrets they had hide

Their heads were held high with pride

Leaving all the prejudices of the world outside

With cheeks flushed and hearts racing

As gradually their true-selves they were embracing

Fear of being rejected was still there

“Why can’t people let us be…” Trent said being annoyed “That’s just not fair!”    

Jonny said with a gentle smile


“Obstacles in love never go out of style.”

Trent being confused asked “Are we doing anything wrong?

 The word ‘inappropriate’ has become our forever tag-along.

Where our love is always misconstrued

Taken as disease and wrongly viewed”

Holding Trent’s hand Johny chuckled

He said sincerely “With such thoughts, at times, even I’m troubled

But what you don’t understand my dear


We labeled as ‘eccentric’ are constantly judged and feared

For all the people who have only one perception

Every other contemplation is merely a deception

Our love is special and difficult to accept

For them, our boundaries, we have over-stepped

For centuries, they have preached the color of love to be red 


The same old idea of hearts and roses, engraved on our hearts, to us they have fed

Turning a blind eye to the panorama that love is far greater and alluring

Forgetting that the true nature of love is merely about someone, deeply caring

For better or for worse, to have and to hold

As two individuals together this path of life unfold

Love is like that humble ray of sunshine on a stormy day

In dire situations that glimmer of hope which manifests the way

It showers in form of rain-drops and provides fragrance to even this dirty ground

No wonder shape of love is somewhat semi-round

The greater picture, if seen, is simply breath-taking

A fascinating rainbow, a visual treat, not worth staking.


So my darling now you see

Along with red; orange, yellow, green, blue and violet setting you free.

Our love has always been unique

So what if people call us ‘freaks’!

What we have, for anything in the world, I wouldn’t trade

And unlike tedious red, the true love, in fact, comes in different shades…”
