a.m.m.t. – 8.31.17

my feet are too close to my body

and my mind is too far apart


#46 – i saw her in shades of blue

i saw her in shades of blue
she was covered from head to toe
she wasn’t like the sky,
an infinite blue which brought philosophers to their knees
but was the ocean, so much, so full,
so empty, so lonely

she was drowned in blue
i suppose i drowned too
she claimed lives
i was no exception
she would be a dark blue,
almost black, in some days
almost impossibly dark
and all encompassing
almost impossible to see
she would be the lightest of blues
so bright, with smiles
like cotton candy clouds
she wore her shades of blue
underneath everything to everyone
but me
