Why Do You Say I'm Blue?


Sky's blue
So's the ocean
You admire
The beauty
I say
I'm blue
You shun me.

Green're the leaves
Green's nature
Green's blue
With yellow
Nature
You like
I say
I'm blue
You keep away
From me.

Picasso
Painted
Blue for years
Blue period
You praise
I say
I'm blue
You turn
Me down.

Blue's in the
Expanse
Blue's in the
Shadows
Blue's
Everywhere
You accept
Blue's good
I say
I'm blue
You run away.

Little gloominess
Floats inside
It's same
Like everyone
I'm still
The same
I assure
Why do you say
I'm blue.

    A fabulous emotional outburst! Blue is the color of nature, blue can't bear any stain.When we say, the sky is stainless we praise the sky. (Report) Reply

    This poem reminds me of a Bob Dylan's song whose title I forget but has the words blue is the colour of my true love in the morning when she rise (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
