Taste the Rainbow

From a prompt to write the taste of my favourite colour. I suppose my sleeplessness might as well be used. Can you guess the colour?

Bitter sweet
Hot and strong
The darkness
Pushing back
The darkness

Bitter sharp
Acrid sneer
Two minutes
Too far gone
What a waste

Bitter sweet
My own breath
All alone

Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment

  1. i immediately thought of licorice as it tastes hot to me! this is such a wonderful poem, taste the rainbow – magnificent!

  2. Maybe the black that is black coffee (before the rush to work)?

  3. Burnt toast goes straight into the trash and I will try again to toast it to my liking. ๐Ÿ™‚ Since black incorporates all the colors, I find your title quite appropriate and clever. You do have a very unique way of expressing yourself and I hope to see more of your work.

    • Got to admit it depends how much of a rush I’m in when it comes to burnt toast, I’m not much of a morning person, so don’t often give myself time to make it the second time
      For all the temptation of keeping quiet and looking clever, I’ve got to admit I hadn’t thought of that with the title, it was the title of the prompt ๐Ÿ˜‹. Thank you for the kind comment

      • I’m not a morning person either and usually my breakfast begins more around lunch time.
        Good of you to speak up about the title but it’s still clever that you wrote about black and well all those colors are in there. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It made me happy to see you show up here…and you’re welcome
