Color of my Soul

March 10, 2019


what color would you exude?
With endless possibilities,
would a hue outshine the rest?
Maybe deep down they have their little civilization,
waging war
and swimming through the dense sea of mania
so a hue shines a bit brighter than the rest.
Maybe if I talked to my crush,
you'd ooze swaths of orangish-pink
as my heart bleeds for affection.
A battle would commence,
a navy blue and embroidered purple tinges:
the fear that my heart will sizzle with just a few words.
Even though fear plagues my actions,
you'd see a kaleidoscope of emotions
ranging from the yellow hue of euphoria
to the stark whiteness of despair, 
a color so blanched that it stains my eyes with misery.
Each hue shines their own light upon my heart,
mixing together to make my soul sparkle.

    Wow, this is so powerful, and somehow, the ending is entirely perfect, even though I usually don't like the words sparkle or mixing. Great job!
