45 (who?)

Shade Of Blue

From a deep slumber...
I have awoken
To this cruel color...
That leaves me haunted

My eyes scream
As I opened the door to my soul
Those thoughts of you start to bleed
Reminding me that you're just a person I used to know

A dark ocean blue that I once knew
Leaked through my window
It matched this mood
Amplifying the sorrow

Sparking negative energy
It's the secret source of my core
The only element allowing me-
To survive another day, once more

Without a care
I can endure
Without a prayer
I push forward

So let this hue shower
With extreme hatred
Force the nostalgia to devour
And let my heart remain powerless

Wishing I was never left behind
I'm not baffled that you still bother me to this day
The reminders of you are such a beautiful sight
I'm sure the desires for you will never fade

The last of our memories aren't kind
It's haunting waking up without you...
I'm surrounded in my empty life
By this lovely shade of blue...
When I'm feeling down and blue
All I have to think of is you

OOOOOOH, morbid indeed. Thoughts haunt us, and the deeper the feelings attached to the person involved, the worse they (the thoughts) seem to linger. This has an excellent imaging strategy, just like a movie, it begins with a big zoomed-out shot "I awaken". Then it gets close "door to my soul", then far away to the environment (leaked through my window), then back to the thoughts, and the bleeding. OOOOOH! Also, to bring up the beauty of the haunting ex-lover in the penultimate stanza, shows an inner struggle of man vs. self. I guess Man vs. Self and Man vs. Power greater are some of the better themes which evoke mixed emotions. You have done a great job of that here. You have a quality such as Edgar Allen Poe of choosing words which remind of unpleasant feelings. By injecting words like, "lovely, and beautiful", you cause a tension within your work that leaves the reader teetering. Good one!

This is such well written. There is a lot of good imagery in this and it is really easy to connect to and it relates to a lot of things others feel as well. Personally, I can really feel this poem. Especially the last 8 lines, so beautiful. Great job on this poem. Truly wonderful.
