Colorless Rainbow

When you walked in the door and sat next to me, flicking your hair around and about me. With every movement, you make tiny droplets rain over me. When you leaned over to kiss my cheek and I embraced you instead, you asked me a question meant to be a tiny little joke.

“How much do you love me?”

My reply by then was, “I love you so much that you mean everything to me.”

I remember you blushed which meant you were satisfied with the answer. But I am not and I ask you for a chance to let me elaborate what I meant.

You put the color in my vision. Without you, my world would end up black and white. You are the reds my roses and the blues in my orchids. To me, you are the sun in the sunset.

The orange tint of the sky as the sun sets. For me, you are that tint.

The smell the earth makes when the raindrops kiss them. To me, that smell is you,

The cackle that the river makes as it flows.

The whistle that the wind does as it blows.

The tartness of the strawberry. The shivers down my spine which emerge as the goosebumps behind my neck. The way the pillow feels after a long day at work?

To me, you are that.

The happiness of parents when their toddler laughs for the first time. The sense of pride after a masterpiece. The tears after a musical. The screams on a roller coaster.

To me, you are that.

The anxiety you feel in the pit of your stomach before addressing a huge crowd. The butterflies in your stomach before the first kiss. The tension before meeting your to-be in-laws for the first time.

To me, you are that.

You mean so much to me that without you, the world is a colorless rainbow.

 

But…

 

I am still not satisfied enough. I still can’t explain you well enough.
