I walked too many miles
and ran so few feet
that my heart skips beats
when the women pass me by
Here I am,
alone in a world of loners
and beast and man alike
sleeping on park benches
smoking cigarette buds
and breathing in,
filling my lungs with
Carbon Dioxide... not so much oxygen
At last no hope!
I hear dear coming for me,
with those crystal blue eyes of his
and he grins his boney smile
and I shiver and accept my faith;
till those baby blues come flashing
like neon blue lighting crashing in the dark skies.
As the last minutes rolled down
for me to go up to the gallows pole
I saw the most beautiful pair of diamonds
that sparkled and shinned and made me smile.
My heart truly skipped a beat,
when she came walking that narrow corner
with a dress of silk and hair golden locks,
"Goldie locks" my childish mind flashed too!
She came up to me
and I took her from the darkness
and the creatures that prayed on her
from the dirty rooftops of abandon cities
and I kissed her,
she revived me
and a new life flashed before me.
Those crystal blue eyes of hers'
saved my life,
gave me hope,
and showed me love,
for the first time in my life
I was in love with such beauty
in this world of dark magic and hate.
Love flowed through my veins
and chilled me,
like chewing peppermint gum
and I held her in my arms and we took a trip
and cruised the open seas alone
in the sailboat of love.
There we were,
those crystal blue eyes,
the one, the only,
The Blue Poet.
