The color of my Love..

It seems only right that you no more like the color.

Like you have remembered every second we had spent together; you would also recall how often we had argued about whose choice of color was better. We would reason out noisily during the recess and form support groups for ourselves, who would then scream some more- naming the colors. We would grin like a fool if there was any mention of our favorite color in the course book- chapters. We would count how often we viewed the shades of the color while running around the school playground.

At 11, I was as bizarre a kid as I am now at 33 today. Only, that I am no more a kid now. I would hunt for a lavender shade and flaunt my painted talons with pride. Being good at academics had its own twisted advantages. The teachers never noticed that it was I who had dared breaking the rules of the school!

In my growing up years I had hardly realized how in desire to compete with your feelings towards me; I had started to like the other color too- supposedly your favorite color. I felt honored if someone called me grasshopper, greenery or parrot- fairy. I loved anyone who addressed me as OLIVE..!

Did you know that the two colors lie diametrically opposite to each other in a color wheel? Alas! We could never complement each other..

Meeting you in 2005, and after an emotionally wringing experience that it was; I am surprised at myself having startled looking at that image. How the two colors (clicked) together made me think of you. Again..! Sincerely, I tried to think of everything else for the story; but I could barely develop any other thought. I see you smirking at me. This is how I am- still declaring what it is; remaining true to my feelings and still holding on to this afflicted love. Has it anything to do with the fact that I had dreamt of you again? Or is it my sub- conscious mind making me think only of you!

Today, I (again) smiled looking at the image Magpie Tales prompted us with.

My love for you remains as passionate as my fave color! I know your Love for me is no more green..

It is I who has carried both the colors as though my personal favorite. It is I who still loves you!

Somehow, it feels only right..

    So evocative. The past has such hold on us. It is amazing the memories the prompt is eliciting.

  13. lolamouse says:

    Wow, this did bring back memories of childhood days, fighting over which color was the “best.” I was also one of the “good” students who was able to break rules because I got excellent grades! Being studious does have its advantages! Nice write!
