When You Turn Black

,,,,,,,

We wrote our days in our secret diary

We kept it white; we thought we’d never die

But, it all turned out in a different way

,,,,,,,

I thought you were immortal but, you’re not

I thought life was nice but, I was wrong

And only now I know what a real world looks like

,,,,,,,

Pain and separation are the same

Truth burns my eyes

And I just can’t stay this way

,,,,,,,

When you turn black, I’ll pray tight

I’ll pray to god whom you never believed in

I’ll try to ask mercy on you

,,,,,,,

When you turn black, I’ll blow your ashes away

I’ll blow them in the skies, because you belong somewhere there

Somewhere I don’t know

,,,,,,

 When you turn black, I’ll miss you

Like the stars miss the dark sky

Like the desert misses the cold rain

,,,,,,,

When you die, I’ll remember you

Like old album pages

Like childhood memories

,,,,,,

I promise , I’ll love you forever…

I love how different this is for you. It is darker, and has more aggression to it, which makes it more personal and real. You use the colour black as a darkness, the opposite of red for love.
Trading between black and white, I love the comparison between the happy moments, and when moments are dense and dark. Its like a complete metamorphisis, and you never expect that when you are in love.
This has amazing images, and your poems get more emotionally charged. This was wonderful to read. You are a fine poet Yulia.

It's a very sad poem, full of the hard emotions and some invocation there are in it. It sounds heartfelt to me, however. I sincerely like it.
