Another Shade Of Blue


I've forgotten
how to dream.
Seems the future
holds another shade
of blue.

True as the folds
of night fall
memory was pleasant
way back in the light.

Hark to my heart,
it beats tight
as a drum...
and I am tired.

    There is remorse and regret, but moreover a weary present reflecting on lighter and perhaps brighter times. (Report) Reply

    A quiet drift of words which echoes the quiet drift of memories- perfectly expressed. (Report) Reply

    Hark to my heart it beats tight as a drum,
    wonderful words with sad undertones,
    so well written (Report) Reply

    excellent capture of an experience widely shared. This state of blue, no matter the details, will always drain and sap ones strength. A fit ending... and I am tired. (Report) Reply

    Hang on Sally, maybe help is on the way.A poignant remimder of the dark valleys where our mind
    oft will wander. A to the point write- very good (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
