Purple


My favorite color is blue,

because it reminds me of me

which reminds me of you.

My favorite color is red,

because it reminds me of now

and reminds me of then.

Reminds me your voice,

and the first time you said...

My favorite color is me

because it reminds me of blue,

and the coconut trees

and the mornings spent with you.

My favorite color is you,

because it reminds of red.

Reminds me your lips,

and your voice in my head.

The time that we were,

and the time that we had.

The first time we met,

And the last time you said...

    Great poem love how the colors red and blue = purple so that was a clever thought. Nice and short and not overdone but just enough to keep someone's attention as they follow to the very end. Nicely done.

    I enjoyed this greatly. It bounced in my mind as I read yet grabbed my heart stings and gave them a tug! (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
