"What Blue Is"
Blue is the wordplay that seeps from my mother's mouth
Flowing through the current with the whales
Swaying, curving down
Blue is a fragrant tall tale of blueberry nights
Dripping dewdrops on sweet Sunday mornings
Rocking, spinning to a beat to the mind
Blue is the dream that never comes true
Drowning in the depths of eternity
Misery, peace, ecstasy
Blue is up there and down there
Laughter riding the waves to my lips
Sleeping until love flies by my fingertips
Blue is every smile lovers fake
Placidly wondering what tomorrow will break
this time, sedating and freezing the heart
Blue is subtle tears converting to jewels and gems
Floating, falling up the rabbit hole to the seas
Children playing pretend between the vintage trees
Blue is so much and so little
All the humility and arrogance of the world couldn't possibly know
what blue is.
A/N: What's blue to you? Haha. This was an assignment for my class and I wanted to create a certain beat to it, like a song, while explainging that blue, to me, is a lot of things that someone can never really explain with words. In my eyes, blue is pain, sadness, nostalgia, the past, memories, tenderness, etc...
