Indigo Stains My Cheeks - Poem by Nicola Bowes

Indigo stains my cheeks
It's a new experience with you
I thought I knew you better
But now on this lonely night
As the moon dances in and out of my bars
There isn't a lot I can do from here
Not much reasoning I can provide from this distance
I loved you and love you as a friend
Unfortunately I just couldn't say goodbye

I had become so used to you
At my every beckon
I never dreamed of my life without you
I cannot think of it without a soldier
To serve and protect; to defend my honour
I will die a thousand times before I say goodbye
Even then will it be a masquerade
I won't understand because I need you

Did Da Vinci ever lose a main influence
Did Michael Angelo die without a friend
No, but I am none of these men
I'm not bound in history books
And I'm no innovator
But without someone that made my life something
I am nothing
Just as empty and cold as you found me
Will you leave me
