"This, too, will pass."


Colored my fingers blue
to-day;
dad laughed and said
I looked dead.

But mom sat me down
(all quiet,)
like a child----
and sadly shook her head.

I reminded her eyes
of a long time ago,
"when a man hung himself,"
she said.

And now all I can think of
(when I see my blue fingers,)
is that
dead man's
empty
bed.

let it burn, suffering teaches the soul; let it grow, love nourishes the heart.

once again, a strange starting point, something I will have to try and do from now on.  wierd way to bring it to a somber ending, it gives the reader a sense of, "what", which is good, it throws one off balance.

Hrm... I'm not sure if I ever actually posted them all in succession or in the full collection. At least not online. I can let you borrow my old journals, if you like? You'll find them there. =) You could also check my DeviantArt.

This is wonderful. Is there anywhere I can find all of the Blue series? Will you post them all?
