The Color of Pain and the Taste of Happiness

The Color of Pain and the Taste of Happiness

By: Hannah Beasley


Some people think pain is dark red or black or another muggy color but no.

Pain is the brightest fucking yellow,

bright enough to burn a hole through your retinas.

Some people think Happiness tastes of sweets and cotton candy but no.

Happiness is the sourest lemon,

the most bitter lime.

why you may ask because neither last.

Pain goes away eventually like the bright yellow suns retina burning ability once night comes around.

Happiness goes away just like a lemons sour aspects once covered in sweetness.

Remember pain and happiness are only temporary.
