on hold

she had sunken eyes
that she played up
until he took her picture
'leave them grey,' she begged and begged

the band sang something like
'you can't want to become a woman
and act like a child'
and it made her think
of what she wanted
like what she really wanted

it was the simple design
that's what she missed the most
having it all decided for her
it never made sense but it was always easy
she needed color but couldn't pick which one
couldn't leave her life on hold for that

'leave them grey,' she begged and begged
