Not Enough Colors

The sky outside is so black.

The light inside is so yellow.

It’s so damn hot that I feel red all over.

The screen in front is blindingly white.

My hair really is brown, no matter what they say.

I wonder if I’ll ever have the guts to color it purple…

Maybe then, my eyes will look more blue again.

It’s amazing, but I’ve actually managed to avoid having anything pink in my entire room.

It’s odd, but the only green that I can see is on Dr. Seuss’s Yurtle the Turtle.

The speaker on my left has a silver glint to it with the light on the way it is.

Gold? Well, my bracelet is rusting and looks pretty gold now.

I’m quite unimaginative at the moment, so I must be missing some colors. I’ll keep looking around. Anything to distract me from the dead grey of the stone sitting in my chest.

    “It’s so damn hot that I feel red all over.” Argh- I know what you mean!
    Such a colorful poem! Keep looking for those colors, I’m sure they are there somewhere… 🙂

  2. This is fun. Some of the best writing can be when we’re feeling unimaginative, because it’s very stream of consciousness. I like that.

    I’ve been feeling warm all day. Over-heated. Orange. I want to be cool. Blue. A light, teal blue like a chlorinated pool on a perfectly sunny day.

    yes, dye your hair purple. I’ll encourage that! 🙂

    I’m listening to my iPod which I frequently do to on tap…Time by Pink Floyd…
