slip knot.

this is who you are
we paint colors on the walls
your blood, or the sun

  1. As a colorist I find a lot of expression in how we use color to emote from others un asked questions. Red for one has meaning that by passes heart, love or valentines. The eastern reflection throws white into my face. Mourning colors just as Morning may arise in sadness.

  2. Here: blood is literal and the color red = anger/frustration. The sun literal and = blinding, debilitating light, while simultaneously suggesting dawn, the offer of a new day. As with most of my stuff, double meanings are both intentional and unintentional. :)
