Color Kills

The sun was bright,
A soft yellow,
Warming our smiles,
A sparkling glow,

With a flash of a day,
The sky turned to black,
It was time to go home,
It was time to go back,

You weren't happy,
The room filled with red,
The anger erupted,
From inside your head,

You struck me,
I cried,
You hit me,
I screamed
The room filled with red,
Your bottle,
It gleamed,
As the blood filled the room,
From my body it streamed,

You sobered,
You saddened,
You weren't quite you,
As you accepted your actions,
The room filled with blue,

I laid there,
Not breathing,
My eyes were shut tight,
I had found my solution,
I had gone to the light,
I had found my solution,
Up there,
In the white

    Nicely done...the colors fit each action or setting perfectly.
