Shades of Gray

You spilled your shades of hues
on my heart,
and escaped unannounced,
leaving me drenched
in your tinge and grays for a lifetime,
and no matter how much I try,
the dark spots of your yesteryear love refuse to go away,
and now I live an ostensible life
with the color of your past yore
