The color green
the shirt you wore the day you said hello
My response was a grin
Your smile turned my insides to jello

The color green
The wall you slammed my head into
Something you said you didn’t mean
But I should not have talked back at you

The color green
A symbol of growth, fertility
All I dropped at your feet
Spinning gold from your futility

The color green
The color of your face
A scowl where a smile should have been
Your heart, envy’s place

The color green, not just a color to me
But the symbol of my pain
