When we first saw the world
It was in primary colors
Even though it was really in black and white
Or rather

When we first saw color
We were enthralled by silver and gold
But the world we knew had dilapidated
The forests burned to the ground
The mountains collapsed

Yet when we looked back with wider eyes
At the primary colors
They glittered like gemstones
Even as the world was swallowed
By earthquakes and floods

While space and time warped around us
And our vision doubled 
We were lost in the glimmering of our diamonds and pearls

Until nothing else was left
But black and white
And black
And white
