    My Blues…

    I don’t feel like talking about love today
    No…na…na…no…no…no
    I feel like talking about blues
    Real blues…my blues
    The kind of blues that tears at you from the inside out, ripping you apart…blues
    The down home Mississippi blues…that makes you realize you’ve got **** for luck…blues
    The all night bar blues…that never fades as you drown yourself with liquor…blues
    The jazz club blues… that cuts you down with each note the saxaphonist plays…blues
    The real world blues…that slaps you in the face as society brands you a failure…blues
    The I can’t win blues…that never seems to end, mama needs a new pair of shoes, the car broke down, rent is late…blues
    The I need a man blues…that pounds away at your lonely heart wanting love, comfort, affection, and not to mention sex…blues
    The is this really my life? blues…that makes you wish you weren’t you, unmarried, bills, bills, bills, dead end job, not gonna lose your last two dollars…blues
    The I cant face the day blues…that leaves you unable to wake in the morning, until you realize the bills have to get paid…blues
    I don’t feel like talking about love today
    No…na…na…no…no…no
    I feel like talking about blues
    Real blues…my blues

    this piece was so cool...
    I've had the blues like this...
    love the symbolism...
    love the "Bluesy" journey
    because blue is not just a color
    .....it's a mood
