Amber

is the colour

of freedom,

intense and exotic,

aromatic

as orange groves

in sun-drenched

Seville.

-

Amber

is the colour

of pleasure,

soft and silky,

elegant

as the curves

of my lover's

body.

-

Amber

is the colour

of memories,

bright with flavour,

tasting

of wild heather,

with hints of

peat.

-

Amber

is the colour

of regret,

aged over time,

brought

to maturity

in casks of

bitterness.

-

Amber

is the colour

of shame,

refined by guilt,

felt

when faces tighten

as I drink

Firewhisky.

A/N: This poem was inspired by chapter twenty-two of 'Moonlight and Shadow,' to show Sirius slowly drowning in memories and Firewhisky. The title and lyrics used in the summary were from the song 'Irish Whiskey' by the Cherry Poppin' Daddies.
