My Colors

June 28, 2008
By Danielle Procope, Sacramento, CA

White
Dances between our hearts, my wavy white dress with,
Green ribbons, green
Ground beneath our feet, and we’re singing to this
Blue tune, I’m in love with you –
Are you in love with me too?
And my thoughts are
Orange like fire, orange like flames on a bonfire,
And my mind is pale like
Yellow sickness, a flurry of bad conditions, encompass
Our spirits, and purple rain,
Floats from the heavens right above my head covered by this
Black cloth,
To keep my humility and my brown skin,
Is only one facet of my beauty and,
Pink dreams can enter my mind and this pink
Lipstick, typifies my type,
Gray abounds over this red sun
But my colors brings us together as one

Danielle,

Apparently you're the only Danielle in Sacramento on Teen Ink...

I just want to tell you, I can see you as a poet. And thanks for letting me read Passions.
