BLUE.

Boardwalk.

(I bet you thought I'd say balance.)

Blue is the water, the boardwalk, this girl.

RED.

Passion.

(I bet you thought I'd say anger.)

For what are we angry about, without passion?

GREEN.

Envy.

(I bet you thought I'd say money.)

I was a very envious girl once, it's true.

PINK.

Stomachache.

(I bet you thought I'd say something cute, like ribbon or barrette.)

Sick pink makes me think of Pepto Bismol.

PURPLE.

Pansies.

(I bet you thought I'd say violets.)

My uncle gave me pansies once before he died, they were yellow and purple and shy.

WHITE.

Daisies.

(I bet you thought I'd say wedding, or purity.)

Daisy petals fall at my feet as I try to figure him out logically.
