Hues

I offer him my blue
The sadness on my soul
For all that I hold as true
Stems from this endless, bottomless hole
The wake of shadowed tears
To forgone self-esteem
Flowing in fleeting years
A river of lost and empty dreams

He offers me his blue
A tender, precious kiss
Awakening anew
Beyond Pain’s chrysalis
A butterfly in view
New dreams set free in flight
He offers me his blue
Sadness becomes delight

I offer him my green
The stained residue of broken trust
With nothing left to glean
Leaving empty, tired hands to sift through ageless dust
Counting the blessings first
Weighed against the thirst of my need
I proffer up the worst
Challenge the world’s greed

He offers me his green
The forest’s spicy perfume
An ever- crystalline
Vision of dogwoods in full bloom
The gypsy and his queen
Chasing nature’s petals adrift
He offers me his green
My greed becomes my gift

I offer him my red
Bricks stacked to form a wall
With emotion laid dead
Inside, to hide from all
A girl molding vision
In heart, in hope, cast blind
Forming the great prison
Of my subconscious mind

He offers me his red
Precious petals of a rose
He lays me down in Love’s own bed
Our emotions overflow
Passion’s hunger is eagerly fed
And yet, he is as gentle as a dove
Intertwined palettes merge and blend
Creating the masterpiece called love……
