Emotion bleeds in colors

Emotion bleeds in colors

A Poem by KATHY SUE SILLS
"

Life brings many shades of emotions!

"


     Sadness fades in a dark black hole
     Tearstain face crestfallen from despair
     And a heartbeat falls in silence 
     A hint of a smile drowns in the depth of misery
     
     Anger bleeds in shades of red
     Acid eyes become frozen with time
     Irritation plays on fabric of nerves
     Desperation tightens in invisible grips 


     Depression runs in waves of blue
     Clouds of weariness rain in timidity
     Sobs cry in unsettled days
     Endless void mirrors a lifeless soul
    
  
     Fear spills in livid grey
     Panic trembles in a desperate plea
     Hysteria breathes no relief
     Reality craves normalcy 

   
     Happiness soaks in yellow rays
     Wrapped in blissful sunshine
     Smile senses joy and laughter giggles
     Light breathes in as darkness fades

     
     Each day is a day for renewal
     Breathe in the freshness
     Lift off the stress
     As emotion bleeds in color

Love the vivid imagery, good use of color threaded through, like the personification of emotions, captures the daily battles of anxiety and depression

I like this new thought life brings shades of gray we need color's to understand what we see that which sperate us from light, this write made see many shades of gray that break the light we allow to block light, yes we need color to bleed

You're a good writer,you tell it like it is. That's what caught my attention as well the words flow .. read more
The beginning definitely didn't catch me, but I kept reading anyway. I enjoyed everything after the second line. It sounds like coming out of depression, which I love. Overall, I would say a pretty good poem.

Colors have always been used to denote emotions and this did a wonderful job. Picturesque and vivid the wording was excellent as was the imagery loved it.

Thank you!
Interesting matching of colors with mental states here. If grey stands for fear, I wonder what shade anxiety would take.

Thank for the review!
Crap! I just missed you! I would have had a heyday with this for my latest poem. Maybe we were writing our poems at the same time. I don't know where to start. You have so many amazing metaphors related to color and every line is powerful! The falling silent heartbeat really got me. This is the first poem of yours I've read and it's a doozie! Can't wait for the next one.
