Clementine

For years I wanted to be your Clementine,
Not Alex to the bunnies that hopped away.

The dark lady to summon the quakes,
But I only tore the ground apart.

The pain raised me and I raised a pain,
I can fit into the greyscale pretty well
And I never ever wanted to lick the rainbow.

I get green with envy,
I get red from rage,
I never ever drink,
But I feast on jealousy
And fast on false hopes.

I get yellow from bile,
I get bluer than blue,
I never ever stray,
But I'm violently infatuated
For the vows I never took.
