blue

the colour of my soul is blue,
teal to be precise
although that is not my game

flying and floating
somewhere above the ground
that’s me, that’s what I do

somewhere out of reach
never quite close enough
my heart in a pouch secreted away

clouds are my friends
and birds keep me company
I cherish the occasional butterfly

a breeze can lift me
and take me away
love me whilst I am here
leave me when I am gone

hold on to the memory
count each single lash
and the look in my eye
when we first met

the colour of my soul is blue,
teal like the sky on summer’s eve

singing its sad little melody
of loss and gone

friends with birds and clouds
and pretty flutterbyes

now I am here
now I am gone.

Artist's Description

Just came to me as always… but in part inspired by Lisa’s Some because I loved it and because it made me think.
