Modern Colours

Flashes of a ballroom
   vibrant 1950s green,
black and white tiles
    blood red river running
between the tiles

Never to return, or so
    it seemed once
Stepping over the threshold
    into childhood screams

A solitary figure with
     no one to greet her
The renovations were simple,
     that green colour she loved

Turning away from this
     place of painful memories
Leaving behind the good and 
    the bad for modern colours
