Blue is the way the cold water feels as the waves of the ocean splash on your feet and the sound the waves make.

Navy is the color of a chilly dark night as you feel a cool breeze upon your face and hear it whistle through the leaves of the trees. 

Pink is the color of something soft and sweet on your lips, and the blush you feel in your cheeks when you feel embarrassed, warm and tingling, yet somehow invigorating.

Purple is loud like when you're feeling proud after winning a fight, or the pain of the bruises you endured during it. 

Red is the color of the heat in a fire so strong and bold. It feels like anger and heat that can burn. 

Yellow is bright and a warm kiss from the sun making your happiness hard to miss

Orange is the in between. Warm and hot and so loud its almost dangerous, but it only makes you want to eat or be cautious

Beige is the color of boredom, the dirt on the bottom of your foot you can feel but not see, the sand you walk on to feel the oceans blue.

Green is the first bite of a good fresh salad, the texture of a newly grown leaf, or that ill feeling in your stomach after you've had too much to drink, and there are lots of different shades in between outside.

Black is the color of nothingness. The emptiness the abyss. The color you see when you can't see anything and any light at all has vanished. 

White is the color you feel when you shock yourself with static cling, or test a battery with your tongue. Its purely electric. 

Brown is the feeling of dirt between your toes, soil in your fingers, the bark of a tree, rough and grainy but beautiful in the way that only a new life growth can be.
