within the blue

in your arms, i feel as though
the sun will never set, 
i am the blushed morning rise
that doesn't rise alone,
i feel you rising as well.

sometimes when i am alone
i question cloudless days
and wonder what if...
what if things were colored gray?

if my hands were only able to trace shadows
rather than the very edges of your soul,
would loneliness trigger me in deeper thoughts
than you or i could ever imagine?

i can't picture my hands empty
aging with time, holding nothing but a dream;
like wrinkled poems falling to the floor
as if never to be read by anyone.

my mind alone could trigger my soul,
pull my fingers back from reality,
press against more than facts
then stop my heart from beating
as i roll the barrel and draw
my last breath of poetry,
alone...
if things were colored gray

    There was a contest with a "blue" theme. SKAT was the sponsor. But, it must have gotten enough entries already!

    Touching poem Sandra! I especially like the thought provoking questions and contemplations - you've executed the theme very well.

    Sandra, normally gray is allergic to gray. I mean dull is allergic to aged ones.Sometimes in life we may see dullness.The only way is fight it out. no excuses to escape. (: ) Jenish.

    thank you Drake....sometimes we question life as is and can't help but to wonder how it would be if if things weren't as good...sometimes change is good...sometimes it's not....hugs :)
