Red, 
Like the colour of your eyes after a night shift. 
Orange, 
Like the colour of your lips after a kiss. 
Yellow, 
Like the colour of your skin under false light. 
Green, 
Like the colour of your fingertips on my skin.
Blue, 
Like the colour of my dreams.
Indigo,
Like the colour of my thoughts when you told me.
Violet,
Like the colour of my words that said goodbye.


Bronze,
Like the colour I thought I was when I left. 
Silver,
Like the colour I always wanted to be.
Gold,
Like the colour that I am.
