Hii im back!!! Have a great day and go say hi to my friends & lunch buddies mirkat (em) and sci-Fi!!! Irl friends with high horizons!!! (psa: do not believe high horizons, I do not own Marco Island as it is an island and nobody I know including myself and family has that much money. high horizons also thinks hard shell tacos are better than soft shell which is also not true)

The colors of the rainbow

The colors of the rainbow:

i. red, blood red
stains the world
it does not let go
our blood does not run rainbow
just red, red, red
it covers many stones

ii. orange, rust orange
just as rust grows when the hinges are tired of holding up the door
we are tired of holding up on our own
the weight of many doors presses upon us

iii. yellow, urine yellow
the color when we have heart attacks
and lose control of our bladders
yet we are forced away from medical care

iv. green, puke green
people throw up when they are sick
emptying their stomachs of disease and germs
sometimes, more often than not,
we are perceived to be sick

v. blue, ocean blue
the kind of ocean
that sparkles in the sun
also, the kind of ocean
we are thrown into from cliffs

vi. purple, flower petal purple
the flowers that people get on a coffin
not in twelve states, not for us

These are the colors of the rainbow.

    Wow, you took such an amazing twist on the colours of the rainbow. I thought it was going to be all happy (as rainbows often imply) but instead it was all so dark and really reflective of how life can be right now. This was awesome!
    RE: Awww thank you so so so much! You're so sweet and your comment made me feel so happy that you care! (plus it kind of made me laugh XD) But thank you so much, it really means a lot <3 (and I'm happy to return the favour if anyone says anything to you either!)
