Colors

Postby NoniCr8 » Sun Mar 31, 2019 12:35 am

Blue reminds me of my childhood
It's the color of me running along the shoreline barefoot
The color of jumping into clear water on a hot day
It's also the color of the chips of paint I peel from the bench at lunchtime as I sit alone
It's the color of the bruise under my eye that I try to conceal with makeup before school

Red is the color of my lips as I smile
The color of my mouth as it forms words of love for my family and friends
The color of the wads of gum that were stuck into my hair
The color of my wet cheeks as my mother is forced to cut off the long hair that my father always told me was so beautiful

White is the color of fresh sheets and fluffy blankets
The color of wrapping myself in softness and comfort and wanting to stay there forever
White is the color of my skin
It's the reason my classmates called me Casper
The reason my friend stopped playing with me because her neighbor told her to "Stick to her own kind."
Because somehow at 5 years old I'm a "White devil."

Black is the color of the sky at my favorite time of day
The cool comforting color of night that begs me to dream
It's the color of my mood
The color of the emotional wounds that never fully heal

Gray is the color of my father's beard
I can still see myself watching from the corner as he combs and trims his silver hair
I want to watch him one more time
Gray is the color of everything between the lightness and darkness of life
Gray is where I live most of my waking hours

There is good and bad everywhere
Even when you try to paint your life with bright colors
Nothing ever had dimension without highlights and shadows

This is really good! I'm not a huge fan of poetry but this works very well. Nice work!

I love this. I've been trying to make one of these myself, about colors.
