Treasure Island

Yvette Lee


Black


Black
Black looks like the night sky
Black smells like sesame paste
Black tastes like olives on the pizza
Black feels like walking to a cave without a torch
Black looks like my violin and cello case
Black smells like coke
Black tastes like dark chocolate
Black feels like not having any friends

    A beautiful poem and I think color variations doesn't matter and real love and affection in worldly affairs is to be respected and pride thereof. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
