Yellow For Friendship- a poem

Yellow For Friendship
K.N. Lee

Yellow for friendship
And red for romance
You kisses taste sour
It's a dangerous dance
I sense your reluctance
You have me wrapped so tight
Say one quick affirmation...
And I just might
Be yours forever
Despite the swift blow
Of a closed fist
To my face
I might not let go

I pull away
Trembling
You hold me too tight
What gifts will you give
This time...
I just might
Find that courage
When I look into your eyes
Eyes full of deception
Eyes full of lies

Words full of venom
Float to my ears
I'll catch them
I'll kill them
I'll burn that fear
