anything but blue

anything but blue

you swept into my life

with an artist’s palette knife

slicing my grey in two

 

my painted canvas sang

pastel colors’ bold harangue

in anything but blue

 

you found me on blind chance

random dance of happenstance

accidentally on-cue

 

twirling on twilight

transmuting our moonlight

to anything but blue

 

you showed me seasons of our joyful heart

and I breathed you deeply within me

if I had reason why we fell apart

I could freefall from where you pinned me

 

where did you go

when leaving me undone?

cruel indigo

our nights obscure my sun

 

when did you know

you would flee our harmony?

how was our artistry

discarded so artlessly?

 

I still sing out your name

sullen embers of our flame

for the love that we once knew

 

water-colored tears shed

scattered prismed wake misread

as anything but blue

  1. Love the music clip. It enhances your sad poem of a love who seems to have vanished into the ether. Love is a fume of sighs…or something similar said the Bard, methinks. Reminds me of this quote. Beautiful poem saturated with feeling.
