Poetry challenge #5 ‘Blue’


I gave you all I had to lose
My heart, my soul, my shoes
And you didn’t have eyes to see
So I was left just feeling blue

I pray to just be taken home
Lay my broken head upon pillow
And you didn’t care to see
My own worst nightmare is me

I drown swallowed up by apathy
My body aches to breathe
And you didnt care to hear
When I told you I couldn’t swim

Blue, take me under
Into your cool embrace
Soothe me in your tone
Birth me through pure waters
Grant me a new face
