Sadness is the Color of ...



Red is the colour of love and boldness.
Green is the colour of youth and summer.
Blue is the colour of my deep thoughts and memories.
Brown is the colour of Janice's hair and freckles.
Sweetness is the colour of a gentle upward curve at each corner of her mouth.
Loveliness is the colour of her small nose set below her round glittering eyes.
Happiness is the colour of laughing together, sharing careless small talks.
Coolness is the colour of the gentle breeze on our backs, so close together.
Warmness is the colour of her slender fingers, held between mine.
Yearning is the colour of my flushed face waiting at her door.
Satisfaction is the colour of the sight of Janice coming out of her house.
Sadness is the colour of my eyes when she said,
"I really like you a lot. Will you go out with my mother and become my father?"

Hi blondepoet,

thanks for commenting. This piece must seem somewhat silly to someone conversant with poetry, like your goodself.

Good to see you.
