A Poem by Olivia Danielle

I never realized until now that colours are something I often take for granted.


Red hides what I don’t want to see

Red blood hides the depth of a wound

Red lips hide the insecurities

Blue calms me down

Blue tears make me sad

Blue skies make way for storms

Purple nails hide the scratches

Purple hair hides the colour underneath

Purple paint hides the stains on the walls

Green eyes put me in a daze

Green grass makes the air fresh

Green hats stand out in the sun

Pink cheeks show love

Pink candy is always sweet

Pink walls remind me of cotton

Colours dance through my mind

Swirls in patterns I can barely follow

As my eyes try to establish which is which

It takes time to grasp

One day I won’t see them any more

One day everything will be black and white

And then just black

Maybe I’ll find new colours on the other side

Ones that never in my wildest dreams could I imagine

But I’m fortunate to wake up

To a rainbow

I owe everything to colours

I absolutely adored this poem and the slight mystery to it. It reminded me of the song, 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow,' and that means you have talent! I love that you picked each and every color and the ending has a haunting, but beautiful vibe that I don't think can be recreated. Thank you for writing this.
