PassageSpark of yellow, bright like the sun.
Their voice stabs deep into your calm.
Resilient orange, like a loud muscle car.
Memories crashing through your confidence.
Slamming red, like a firetruck rushing past.
Shards of your facade crash down to your feet.
Cold maroon, heavy like blood on a clean cloth.

Blues, greens, browns, paint smears,
