Heavy Blue

The deep sighs come unbidden,
Without my knowing why.
A love that is no longer
Yet hurts too much to cry.
Tears pooling in my heart
To stay there until death.
They over-flow into my breast
And I must catch my breath.

How much does sorrow weigh?
My scales do not say true.
How long the yard-stick needed
To measure color blue?
Pain ever escalating
Shall be at ending never.
The weight, the time, the measuring,
The sighs go on forever.
