Creative writing weekend part 1

We’ve done a number of exercises so far including one where we already had the first word of each line.

If colours were sounds
If sounds were colours
I would hear melodious rainbows
I would see technicolor symphonies
Needed new perspectives
Needed topsy turvey freedom
You painted me jazz
You sang me Monet

I struggled with the word needed. I don’t like needing. I wrote a second poem with the same structure:

If there had been no one
If a hand hadn’t been offered
I wouldn’t have reached out
I would have let myself drown
Needed a flare to be sent
Needed someone to see
You threw me a lifeline
You taught me to swim
