Blue

Bluest blue

Blue rain and red rain

Blue and red and red again

Dilly dancing calling out my name

The same way that you used to do

Lost and empty and lost again

To where you were yesterday gone

So wrong to be as old as time

Time and rhyme and rhyme again

Oceans in her eyes flood the longing stone

Cold cold heart

Oh thou wicked wicked breath of night

Oh thou wicked ache of day

Night and day and day again

Lay sweet within her

Where love is I will forever be

Blue and red and red again

Blue rain and red rain

Bluest blue

Blue

First time I have read you Augusta. A very bitter-sweet poem indeed.

I really like this too, Augusta, blue is sad, but also beautiful, like your poem. x

Good Afternoon Isobel

Many thanks for reading and how well you know me and your subject.... yes it is a very sad poem... the typo has been righted many thanks once again for spotting it. I am out of practice... alas in many things! ...

Love and best wishes

Lovely to see you back posting again Augusta - you always spice things up a bit!

'Where love is forever be' doesn't sit well with the flow. Should is be in there? Other than that I love the alliteration, flow and repetition. The dilly dancing sounds fun too ;-)

I get the feel of love/desire pulling like the tides, as eternal as the waves. The colour is of sadness though - thwarted love perhaps, spiced up by the red of night? x
