A love poem


by adrianalujnflor

Red I should have been embarrassed

Of the way we started All lust and heavy drunkenness Or the way I came crawling back the next day My heart hammering nervously in my chest You've been trying to make me blush ever since

Orange It all moved so fast

It was supposed to be one night One week A text every once in a while I thought we were always doomed to stop Or at least slow down Or something in between

Yellow I wasn't quite innocent

But I wasn't quite not Not quite white like all the sheets In all the 2 star hotels we slept in Our limbs intertwined And we would talk and laugh about nothing I love your laugh


I remember when I looked into your eyes And realized they're the same color as mine And every boy I kissed before you Has become just another forgettable pair of brown eyes


You like to tease that I'm short But I've never felt taller Than the way I feel when you kiss me It's like heaven is just barely out of reach

Indigo And the hardest moments are all the good byes

I cry a little more each time And I stay awake all night missing your scent and the way you feel Of course, I stay awake all night when you're here I've seen every shade of the night with you


This love is something you don't find easily So rich and beautiful and unique
