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

    Hark to my heart it beats tight as a drum,

    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
