drape me in teal



drape me in teal
my love
i require it
today
otherwise indigo
or something
parallel

allow me to glow
sapphire
for you
for blue's
o so elemental

monotone—
my torment
soul sacrifice
a probable
award—
another way
to say
finale

cobalt
or not
my soul
take note:
i may soon favor
periwinkle
over you

then
i shall
wither
to heather

[o so sentimental
& fucking predictable].

Must be something in the <a href = "http://musicallypromiscuous.blogspot.com/2011/02/down-in-valley-michael-grimm.html>air</a>!

Loved the eye roll at the end. A little predictability is comforting in such a color.

Well that didn't work out at all did it?

I was trying to show you I was posting about similar colors...

Rock me
with waves of blue

I'll stand so ever still
in the hue
let it coat my skin
to a deathly pallor
hang my head
curl my waist
crumple slow like that
vertebrae by vertebrae
as I follow the sound

:)

I found a print tucked into a vintage book in a trunk owned by my grandmother. It shows a beauty in a blue room, dressed in shades of blue. It is gorgeous and captivating, and this poem describes it (well, all except the final line...).

hello Lydia,

i'm intrigued ...

would it be possible for you to post a scan of the picture you speak of? was it of an acquaintance? perhaps a postcard? or something entirely different? ...

all these questions ...

i thank you for your comment ...

noxy.
