18. Rainbow

red was for anger
orange for selfish desire
yellow for sickness and disease
green for deception
blue for all sorrow
purple for foolish pride

indigo for
darkness of night at noon,
a bitter cup drunk
so I could taste the sweetness of salvation.

then violet was for wisdom
sapphire for peace within my soul
emerald for new life
gold for brightness and beauty
amber for brilliant joy
and crimson
for the precious blood
that washed me white as snow.

Wow. This one is amazing. I had to re-read it several times, it just left me breathless. I love the way the colors got their names changed afterwards.
