Colour me purple

I love her
If she was a colour,
I'd bet on purple.
Draped in a shawl.
A cigarette fumes.
Forgotten in her firm hands.
And she winks at me from across the room.
As we meet,
She lifts me up in a bear hug
So large, my heart smiles.
So honest, I'm shy. 
She's cut her hair again.
And it's falling in crude curls.
We laugh. At ourselves.
And the sun is shining again.
I watch her.
Look into me.
We're tripping over
words and paranthas.
And dusk seems
more purple than ever.
