Orange.

The calm of the midnight street enthralls you

As the orange light of the streetlight

Washes over the street in front of the window

And you look back at the new friend you have made.

 

Slowly, the love letters creep back

Their place, rightfully, into the bookshelves

And the photographs, a trope

Of your life- begins to refill

 

Everything about him fits your bill

Or that’s how you certainly like to hope

Straight in your heart the stranger dwells.

And in all the patience and love you lack

 

But now you know you wouldn’t trade

Everything you learnt the last couple of weeks though

And you know your conscience will fight

Against you being adamant too

 

And that’s when you calm down

Comfortably onto your plush bed

“I want nothing but love,” he said

And you have a heart full of it, for going around.

 

Because it’s NaPoWriMo, another Poetry Challenge based on the theme colour.
The Colour Challenge: A week of original poetry based on seven colours.

Day 6: Orange.

(I’m extending the challenge by trying to tell a story through the seven colours I choose. Don’t know if it’ll work out though.:P)

About TheBlackWallflower

I'm just your average unique person. I love to read and write (no surprises there, eh?) and think a lot. I adore Rowling and think Harry Potter should be a religion. I also hate pink. I love fluff generally because it makes me feel intelligent and I love poetry because it makes me feel different. (yes, references.) I'm married to Sirius Black. So I sign myself as The Bitch alarmingly often. Oh, and I love Mr. Darcy. And Jo Longo. And Chandler Bing. And Sherlock. (Yes, I'm a fantard.) And in case you want to drop in a good, or a critical word, feel free to email me: theblackwallflower@gmail.com OR, follow me on Twitter: @WallflowerBlack Enough with the babble. OkBye.
