A/N: this was up here before, and i took it off, but i decided to put it up again. only some of it is true.. mostly my imagination running around wildly (as always) and some of it escaped through my ear and spilled out on my keyboard :)

Interpretations

I asked you
What the color orange meant to you.
Told you it was for an English paper,
But it wasn't really.
You said, "Fruit",
And "The sun"
I smiled.
Typical.

I asked you
What you connected with red.
Told you I was doing a survey,
But I wasn't really.
You said, "Your hair",
And "Power and strength".
I smiled.
Also typical.

I asked you
What "cool colors" meant to you.
Told you a friend of mine needed to know,
But she didn't really.
You said, "Cool colors are what you get
When you smudge pastel memories with time."
I smiled.
Semi-typical.

I asked you
What yellow meant.
Told you it was for English again,
But it wasn't really.
You said, "Golden happiness"
And "Light after the storm"
I smiled.
Not so typical.

I asked you
What you thought of color.
Told you it wasn't important
But it was. Really.
You didn't say anything.
But looked at me,
Smiled,
And leaned down to kiss me.

And when you drew away,
I could see the entire spectrum in your expression.
