being gray

stuck in the transition between black and white
I juggle with detachment
indifference runs through my veins
and like a fence-sitter
I zip my lips and watch

the colours of expression
ask me to interweave with them
in a braid of joy and lust
but I’m scared
they could change my tint
or make me want more
and I’m just a cooler
unemotional and steady like a rock
stuck between black and white
I don’t want to feel
