    But what colour are you, my friend?

    Is it auburn, my mother drinks since
    dad left to heaven while saving me?

    Or is it red that my sister spent seven
    years in prison to repent his life for?

    Is it crimson that tints her cheek when
    she holds her mother unaware of you?

    Or is it pink that delusions a new lover
    before a hurricane abandons his home?

    I have searched for you in every brown
    in a hope that you will be sitting at veins.

    But, every time I step on them, the creaks
    reminds me, they acquainted with you.

    I have painted my organs with darkest of
    black in a hope that you will find me here.

    But seems like she really loves black that
    'she watched the darkness stride forward.'

    Is it yellow that van ate in order to raise
    his spirits, contrary to being cheerful?

    Or is it blue, the facade that still holds
    my friend's marks when she jumped off?

    Is it orange that sets every night to kill
    my favourite wallflowers by the road?

    Or is it green, settling on a river that
    once captivated 'ocean's'eyes but left.

    I have searched for you in every purple
    my husband crafted over me last week.

    But it seems you hate it because every
    time he winces, it doesn't weaken me.

    I have tried every greens and blues and
    greys in a hope this will fade one day.

    But what colour are you, my friend?
    I am tired of seeing myself in white.
