Mind full of colour
And a mouth full of froth
We loved one one another
Or that's what we thought

Mind full of colour
And a mouth full of froth
From frenzied to fodder
We both came to nought

Our emotions were hidden addictions
Silent agony and unbeknownst afflictions
Oh our mixed up minds! Oh our misguided volition!
Brought us to the place that was too dark to listen

Done too much and done too much damage
A crystalline bond to this perversion of marriage
We've run ourselves worthless and worked ourselves ragged
Now There's nothing to cry over because there's nothing to salvage

(The blackened rivulets flow from where we once bled
I must plainly insist that we are better off dead
Than to long for the illusion that once lasted in our heads
And run from this imposed "reality" we so dread)

We medicated to forget but I remember it well
When the dosages were smaller and our noses could still smell
When there was furniture left in this living room to sell
When our granulated sins hadn't yet brought us to hell

We aerated our forearm with needle thrusts
And crushed the largest pills to dust
But not even daydreams borne of chemical lust
Could save the errors that became of us

Mind full of colour
Mouth full of froth
We danced in the parlour
And it came at a cost

Mind full of colour
Mouth full of froth
We found one another
But now we're both lost

Alex, The boy full of ideas

mindful of color

I'm not generally into longer poems but I enjoyed this. I was attracted by your title including a mnemonic device- but I couldn't remember at first what it should remind me of!
