by Bianca Delarosa

I had always wondered what it would be like
To be someone else
When I was little I would close my lids
Slip into the skin of another
See the world through
A different set of eyes
Feel what they feel
Taste their mouth in mine
See if they see colors the same, you know? 
Like what does Blue look like to you? 

I asked a man who was colorblind
But, he was high at the time, and
I never make sense, so
I left it alone
Though, he did let me know that
Colors do not look the same. 
After that I never did wonder
 what it would be like to be someone else
Because, what would I do
If i lost the color blue?
