lost in time and space
what is before my face?
white is all around, it is all i see
is it actually a real colour or is it me?
how do we know objects are the colours we perceive?
but how do we know how to classify what we've seen?
only by physical touch these colours become real
only by our curiosity do we reach out and feel
tantalize our eyes
educate our minds
what is this before me?
what is this thing i see?
is it really that colour, or has my mind decided to play games?
colour is in the mind; if there wasn't segmentation, it's all the same
