It's definitely not what you might've expected me to say
But it is a colour to me.
It reveals the darkness behind every object.
An opaque screen reveals that things are well hidden
An opaque door does not show an entrance nor an exit,
It leaves the quest for intricacy to you.
A man who isn't transparent passes judgement frequently.
The clouds in his mind blocks the light that is to broaden one's perspective,
If given the chance.
So I saw opacity everywhere I went,
In the sheets I laid under,
In the gasping breaths I took to escape night terrors,
In the brightness of day,
In the air breathed,
In the sermons received,
In the pupils of men and women,
Whose hands I shook
And incorporated into their seemingly pleasant gestures were...small talk
So opacity in character is the clearest thing to me.
It shows us, we are sheltered in our unknowing
And we can never truly know... everything.
