Colors of the Thread

Cut me a red thread

Like the Chinese belief it will connect us.


Cut me an orange thread

To illustrate the bursts of love I first felt for you.


Cut me a yellow thread

Because I hate the color but you are my Sun.


Cut me a green thread

So the Earth will remind me to breathe when you first kiss me.


Cut me a blue thread

I want to get lost in with you like the vast blue sky.


Cut me an indigo thread

To remember how for so long I didn't know you existed.


Cut me a purple thread

As my favorite color and the blood of two Queens.


Cut me a white thread

Then burn it black for all the sin

I committed when I learned

How to love you.
