Purple Allergies

I am 
Totally
And horribly
Allergic to purple.
Just seeing it written out makes my skin crawl
And my stomach turn somersaults.
Its glossy shades flash in front of my eyes
And leave me dizzy and confused.
It taunts me and waves its satiny bows at me
Until I just want to rip it from end to end.
Purple is unoriginal and created from blue and red
But it flaunts itself into a royal color
And forces itself into the minds of children,
Preening as their "favorite color".
It laughs at me all the time
And I wish that it didn't exist.
Its shiny shades
Of marroon 
Orchid
Eggplant
Mauve
Grape 
Lavander
Haunt me dreams until I can not sleep
Without feeling disgusted.
My doctor says I am allergic to nuts
But I know
I am
Secretly
Awfully
Terribly allergic to purple.
