Bluewing Falling


Her magic is drawn 
from an ocean's 
million hues 
reflecting 
boundless skies

slain by her trembling perfection 
you grab hold of her 
to save yourself 
 
and you do not mean her any harm 
you just want to feel what azure feels like
to experience the depths of cerulean 

but her cobalt dust 
rubs off all over you 
your being  

indelibly indigo stained 
  
as the beauty you wished to possess 
lays crushed 
at your feet

Wow! Thank you Faraz! I didn't know it had soared to #2 :)) Thank you for the fave! I'm really pleased with this piece, it got an n/a in the contest it was written for, goes to show ya how subjective our art is. It's the occasional contest that seems to bring out the romantic side I usually hide ;) A wonderful day to you my friend! xomo

What a charming and gorgeous write, Mo, so full of color and expression ... I am never disappointed when I click on a poem of yours, and always enriched at the close! Lovely and intelligent write, as always Dear Friend! :-) <3
