The Color of Words

Red hot and boiling over
Whenever I talk to you.
See your face

Icy blue and hard
As another harsh word
Comes passing through your smirking lips

Black as coal
I feel it in every sentence
Every syllable

Throbbing and purple
Cover my very soul
As a reminder of you

Salty and clear
Threaten to escape
But I refuse to let you have the satisfaction
