Blue

October 1st, 2017.

I like blue. I like the color blue.

The color of the sky, the sea, the highlighter I use in every textbooks of mine, the whale plushie I’m hugging to sleep every night.

I like blue. It gives me warm and soothing feelings, the kind of feelings you get when a favorite person of yours give a hug.

Lately, I begin to like the other blue.

The faded blue dye on your hair. The faint blue reflection on the tip of your nose, when you’re staring down at your phone in the dark. The blue checkered shirt on my closet that still smells like you. Also the baby blue nail polish you insisted on putting on me.

I like blue. I like it better when it’s you in blue.
