I remember gold

Closing my eyes 

Bathing in sunlight

Warmth on my skin and love in my heart

I remember black

Covering my ears 

Blocking out silent screams

Tired eyes battling a mind that wouldn’t sleep

I remember blue

Spreading my arms

Embracing ocean waves

Salt in my mouth and laughter in my ears

I remember red

Bandaging my fingers

Praying that no one would see

Satisfaction at odds with shame

I remember green

Tilting my head

Catching snippets of bird song

Music in my ears and peace in my heart

I remember grey 

Turning off my brain

Mixing darkness with light

Unsure whether to care too much or not at all
