Shades of Blue -- Free Verse

Aquamarine pools lie in light
searing surges of periwinkle
How does one describe the depths
of the soul piercing me 
and sending me to tears
gazing at the azure i am lost 
in the fury and serenity
love entraps entangles
consumes me.

No more will i wander
with visions of periwinkle 
haunting me for i know the 
source of this mystery …
it is you Athena it is 
Cerulean unleashed it 
is destiny to pursue my
odyssey my legacy
to be engulfed in the serenity

As i flounder through life
lost and despicable knowing
No love i was trapped drawn entangled
by ultramarine by sapphire not escaping yet
Embracing the pain and pleasure of great love 
Arria and Paetus willingly moving to depths
of cobalt absurdity to prove love has no bounds
be mine oh midnight oh royal oh Persian
until my last breath exhaled is midnight …
