Red is the colour of passion

Me a colored blind dreamer
My other senses honed
You ask
What can I know about color
I am told red is the color of passion
I feel the heat 
Between us
I smell the rose in your long black hair
The feel of the red silk nightie I remove from your body
Beneath is your browned skin 
smooth and luxurious
I see it with my hands
I travel to pink with my tongue
Separate your lips
Taste the essence of you
I see the blue of my eyes in your smile
As I swim in your ocean
You who knows every part of me
Yellow is the brightness of your soul
You light my spirit
Permeating all my dark corners
You are the color of all my dreams
My rainbow and pot of gold
I am satisfied
Yet I have no desire to leave your embrace
I see and feel all your colors
Satisfy me again
Let me hear the sound of our colors combined

    Btw... I've responded to the comment on my poem. The stick was actually an instrument called a didgeridoo. It's very, very odd sounding... look it up on youtube if you are curious.

    I am familiar with the instrument and I love the sound it resonates in the rib cage. It hales from Australia. Some of them are really huge.

    You've been the romantic lately now haven't you? This really makes me wonder if colors are more of something you feel or a sensation? How can one explain the concept of colors to one is colorblind (or in fact FULLY blind)? I remember watching a movie about a disfigured man falling in love with a blind woman... he explained colors to her by use of hot (red) and cold (blue). But you don't need to take my advice... you seem to have the person that explains these things to you everyday :)
