Everyone is so colorful
so full of life, so vibrant

Kind green hues
yellow smiles
red thoughts of love
pink cheeks from embarrassment

But I am grey, a colorless hue that represents the lack of self
yet I shine as if I am the only light
for darkness always contradicts the light

How do you describe
the indescribable
what is black
"well its a color"
no describe it
what does it look like
how about red?
What do you think of when you think red?
Apple?
Firetruck?
but what is it

So many colors on nature’s palette
There are many moods and emotions
Picturesque gallery of many paintings
Forever framed in the travelers mind
Masterpieces cannot be recreated
If we only hold onto black and white
Immerse the soul in nature’s color
Many shades will color the spirit

I am not a color.
I am a human,
Just as you are.
Why can't you see that?

My heart spills out colors.

Crimson
The blood that bled from my skin as your hand left mine.

Black
My irises as I spotted you.

Green
My jealousy as I saw you with her.

Yellow
The clock upon I wish to feel your lips crash against mine.

Blue
Tears I shed at night thinking of you.

Pink
My lip as I bite down on it when you call me.

White
My mind as you walk up to me.

Ruby
My face as I storm off when you ignore me.

You toy with me but I still love you.

I love the colors on you,

I love the colors on you,
The beautiful blue in your eyes,
To the purples on your knee,
The brown dirt on your left hand from this afternoon gardening with me,
Just because i begged you to,
The pink in your cheeks that i love so much,
You get so flustered at the smallest things,
I love the brown of your hair that changes direction with the wind,
The summer bronzing of your skin,
Colors i cant describe,
You give me a new color everyday,
But i am so glad theres one color i never see,
and thats gray.

If you take the time to look at the one you love with lust, youll learn how many colors make up their beautiful being.

i can’t watch the sunset anymore
because the crimson reminds me of your lips
and the purple of your favorite shirt.
the yellow is the color of the lemonade
we shared while listening to soft music
in the green grass under the stars,
while you ran your thumb along my fingers.
you said you loved me and i believed you -
my mistake

Every color that we see has a name to you and me.
I said that mans hat was red; you said his hat was green.
I said that woman's scarf was orange; you looked at me with scorn, and sternly said no my love, I told you that color is red.
Laughing loudly; you asked what for.
I pointed at a running squirrel. Giggling I told you I'd never seen that color before; With one stern look my fun had froze, darling that's no squirrel it's a white rose.

Over and Over I told you the colors I saw from prickly leaf, to sunshine warmth.
And Over and Over you corrected my words saying sweetheart those colors aren't apart of this earth.
I would smile and shake my head saying you were right. but in my head that wasn't brown at all.
And so it went, and little by little the world began to dim.
Sunshine warmth turned into yellow, and night abyss to black. And with the transformation of my colors my heart and soul changed too.
But it's okay after all I'm just like you.

When I was young,

The grass was greener
The sky was bluer
The clouds were whiter

But now that I'm older,

The bills are greener
The bruises are bluer
And the faces are whiter
