Life is Short



Life is short (1)




Blue is our colour

Pools of sapphire that light up your face

And my day.

Your soft cerulean jumper.

That I long to touch but never do.

The azure oceans where one day we might swim

But probably never will.

The kind of movie our lovemaking would inspire

Set the world on fire

Put out with my indigo tears.

Yes it’s definitely our colour

And it’s certainly mine

That glacial feeling

When I have to leave

The colour of a dying heart on my sleeve.







I found you at last

In the most unexpected of places

Slowly. Slowly. Do you feel it too?

I think you do.

I see it in your eyes.

Those pools of blue.

But mine are dark and I don’t know if I should pull you in

To swim. To swim.

You know the depths of me.

The salt and fresh water that flow in my sea.

But what about yours?

Where are your ripples?

Or are you riptide?

And I’m the one being dragged in.
