Rainbow (Draft 1) (R 8)

Rainbow (R 8+)

What will I do that’s better than the sun,
something in a rosy mood of you who
loves the ephemeral but

I don’t feel like your favorite sunrise
because I am the blue of the rainbow
and can not be as radiant as all the colors

But I think you like my one
particular color, because
I feel like
I belong to sunshine
