Do You Dream in Colour?
Do you dream in colour?
Red: There’s fire under the bed
Blue: Somebody’s suffocating you
Green: The demon cannot be seen
Yellow: Breath deep, feel yourself mellow
Grey: The early morning mist of a new day
White: Eyes shielded from the dazzling light
Brown: The quicksand drags you down
Black: The colour of night, before day fights back
What colour do you dream?
