Blue Is The Colour

Blue is the colour
Of this life I lead
Blue is the colour
That if I'm cut I'd bleed

White is the colour
Of my sullen face
White is the colour
Of life lost without a trace

Green is the colour
Of thoughts inside my mind
Green because I envy
Those that can unwind

Gray is the colour
Of days all overcast
Gray is the colour
Of memory's fading fast

Gold is the colour
Of my lost friend the sun
Gold is for wealth
Which in prison I have none

Black is the colour
Tattooed upon my heart
Black is every night
Till the end and from the start

Silver is the colour
On the edge of the knife
Silver is the razor
Used to end a life

Yellow is the colour
Of he who cannot cope
Yellow is the colour
Of he who gives up hope

Red is not the colour
Of any hell I know
For it's magnolia on the walls
The ceiling and the door

The mind delves to solve some mysteries, .At one moment it is belief, at the other it is disbelief.Expressed in some beautiful lines- - Ah, the minutes twinkle in and out And in and out come and go one by one.none by none What we know, what we don't know.
Wonderful poem........I liked it.....
An imaginary continent and a wonderful animal hitherto unknown likes
An imaginary continent and a wonderful animal hitherto unknown and an interesting poem.
That first stanza blew me away! She speaks of an imaginary continent because the earth has already been fully explored - there are no landmasses left to be discovered - and then she dives into a wonderful fancy within that imaginary continent - of an animal undiscovered, unknown and unseen - and how time flies so because it is a happy place - no worries or concerns. I find this poem incredibly fanciful and completely whimsical - and it goes absolutely nowhere but is entirely lovely all along the way! A+! ! !
