    last night came on a wave of pale blue
    when I sensed there was something
    different about you
    you didn't even want to talk~
    or was I just imagining it
    when you walked
    away from me

    at midnight cobalt touched my soul
    when you called me up and told me
    over the telephone
    that you neeeded some space~
    why couldn't you tell me
    straight to my face
    and be a man

    at dawn my heart turned royal blue
    because I couldn't stop thinking
    about me and you
    and asking questions in the dark
    wondering why our love
    no longer had spark
    only dying embers

    and the deepest blue that blue can be
    washed my world away when
    you told me
    that you were leaving~
    I felt the love we had
    slowly stop breathing
    dying inside of you

    there was no blue in the tears I shed
    blue had lost all it's colour
    it too was dead
    the tidal waves of tears I cried
    were crystal clear as they fell
    from my eyes
    washing memories away

    into another blue day

    blessing on your poetic soul!

    This shall surely be a Kitana Klassic, your ablitities never cease to amaze me for the power to move, soothe and create images that all of us can relate to. What wonderous pains created in heartbreak make poetry come alive!
    BLESSING ON YA HOUSE!
