Any Color You Like

Red for a walk, a kiss and a rally by the old brick lane Yellow for the garden that meets me when I look out of your pane. Green for a small bullet in a box that travelled the world and cried myriad tears Pink for all the moans you let out when I used to bite your ears Purple for the letters we wrote to each other and kept in shoeboxes for five years. Brown for the leaves that touched my lips, Formed a cloud over my head and rushed out of my room with a point of no return Orange for the rubber I used to suck in bed and eventually churn. Blue for the place that taught me to love, a place where I met my dame. And Black for whiskey in dark rooms and the dearth of an aim. ~Somrwita

When I welcomed you to PoetrySoup I hoped that you would continue your writing and share it with us. Today I am asking you to please continue your poetry writing. Just write what is in your heart as that is where the best poetry comes from. I will stop back soon and hope to be able to read some new poetry from you at that time Somrwita. Love, Carol
