Describe the Colour..

By @pieinthetardis

Short Story

When you see her for the first time, it is the colour of her eyes. When you touch her for the first time, it is the colour of her hands. When you hear the words that fall from her lips, it is the colour of her soul. When it begins to rain, it is the colour of the sky. When you look up, it is the colour of the birds that are frantically trying to find shelter. When she reaches into her bag, it is the colour of her umbrella. When the rain hits your face, it is the colour of the looming goodbye. When she tells you she must go, it is the colour of your breath. When she turns and walks away, it is the colour of your tears. When you take in a deep breath, is the colour of the musky smell of wet earth. When she looks back over her shoulder and smiles, it is not the colour of your pulsing heart as your blood rushes.
