Silence is green
It tastes like mint leaves on your tongue
It smells like the green land all around you
And feels like the string of a bow ready to fire
It sounds like the slow wind rustling the bushes
And looks like a deer glowing in the sunlight
Silence is the quiet dinner of deer and bread
by Kyle Z.
Pain is red
The taste of salty tears running down my face
The foul smell as green liquid oozes out
The feel of death
The sound of birds falling silent
The sight of trees spinning in circles around me
Not blacking out is the key to winning the games
by Alanna A.
it's hard to be grateful
when the guilt makes you hateful
it's hard to be sure
that Katniss will be walking through
the front door
and if she does
we will not be poor anymore
to do that she’s going to have to at least
have hope to win this war
it's extremely unfair
but President Snow doesn’t care
by Daniel P.
Bitterness is grey.
It tastes like burnt bread
And smells of a burning forest.
It feels of painful oozing bumps
And sounds like the ringing boom of a cannon.
It looks like a girl with a cold exterior.
Bitterness is long lasting like a deep hole
by Eric M.
Anger is a searing hot red
It tastes like insipid revenge
It reeks of a traitor and a rebel
It feels like the ghost of a missing tongue
It sounds like the warning calls of the birds
It looks like a metallic hovercraft coming closer
Anger is the act that leads to forgiveness
by Madiha and Irma
Defeat is dark brown
tastes like a un-cooked rabbit
reeks of hard work
feels like the blade through your grasp
sounds like a boy in despair
looks like you're face down, crying
Defeat is a heaven without God
by Andrew R.
Sadness is blue
Tastes like sour pudding on a bad day
Smells like tributes dying
Feels like burns all over your body
Sounds like screams from far away
Looks like dead corpses getting dragged up in the air
Sadness is no way to play
by Ryan R.
