“My husband hates yellow”

“My husband hates yellow”

A Poem by goldenscar__

The first time we met


he told me about yellow


and how much he hates yellow


he forbade me from wearing yellow


and every shade of yellow


My favorite skirt was yellow


My lucky socks were yellow


but I got rid of yellow... because he's dear


I woke up this morning


and he was nowhere to be found


he left nothing but a Daffodil and a note behind


saying:


"It wasn't about yellow"

His loss.............:)
Wow, that is a killer of a parting. I've always liked the colour yellow myself, so bright and cheery. Nothing like a host of daffodils nodding in the breeze. Wordsworth adored them. I have never obeyed my husband. If he had given me that sort of ultimatum he wouldn't have lasted long. Your poem opens up many thoughts about relationships. Respect and understanding being just two of them..I liked your poem very much.

i am struck dumb ...great use of the turn in closing ...leaves her a daffodil indeed ..wow ...speaks emphatically how much is lost in translation sometimes in a relationship ... and how one sided they can be as well ... fine story telling ..straight forward language that paints a much larger picture than on the surface ... universally relatable .. nice one Golden
