When does someone show you their “true colours”?
The moment they disappoint you?
When they set boundaries you think are “too much”?
Choose differently to what you expected?
Call you out?
Humans are more than one thing,
And our feelings about each other can often be mixed.
Sometimes people simply outgrow each other
And other times they’ve just had a bad day.
“True colours” are probably not seen clearest
In the darkest moments of a relationship
But rather in light of a shared history.
Not everyone has an agenda
Not everyone just wants to take from you.
If you are lucky enough in this life
You may get to meet people
Who show their “true colours”
Some people stick around
Simply because they care,
And maybe one day they’ll hurt you
But you may come to find those wounds
To be more honest and true
Than a hundred kisses.
