The Colors Of My Midnight

Red, crashing my heart
on a radio heartbreaking song.
Black, blinding my eyes on
the pictures of your divorce.
Green, separating me from
the big slice of your wedding cake.
Blue, pounding my flesh on
a horrific fever and bad flu.
Yellow, exposing my dirt, my
transgressing in secret places.
White, washing me fully, making sure
that I am saved.
