If emotions were colors

What would they be?

Read on my friends

And you will see!

 

If love feels pure, forever and right

Then it’s easy to see

That loves color, must be white

 

Anticipation has its cons and pros

With speed and hurry as a goal

Then its color can surly only be Rose

 

So Envy is always best not seen

It makes good sense then

That its color is deep emerald Green

 

Anger is associated with dread

And again it’s easy

The color therefore has to be Red

 

Surprise is hard, so what to do

Go with your instincts

And choose and beautiful sky Blue

 

Boredom is one I can’t understand

So to give it a color

It must be pale yellow and bland

 

Panic is one that makes me think

But with all that movement

It just has to be Pink

 

Lust is one I have to highlight

So beautiful and raw

It just has to be Violet

 

Disgust is silent and often not true

It is full of self loathing

And so is a mix of Purple and Blue

 

Trust is always good and clean

With no inhibitions at all

So my color for you is Lime Green

 

Fear is something I do not lack

And it follows me around at night

So its deep, dark foreboding Black

 

Happiness is the one to behold

And there is no other color to say

But beautiful bright shining Gold!
