Aria Siren


Don't Cry Over Spilled Sunsets


Happiness!
That is what he does to me
He paints me grey skies
Misty fog
Rainy fields
Beautiful uncertainty
Pierced
By dashes of red and orange happiness
Quick bursts
Of blushed reassurance
He interupted laughter
Smiles shared between us
Just to tell me
To catch the sunset
Spilled Sunsets
Dripping pink and bleeding orange
Red skies
Soaking into blue-grey canvases
He said if I turned my head I would miss it
If I blinked it would melt
But I did
And now it's gone
Oh well.

    A rather mournful ending for such a wonderful image. I find it interesting how it begins with the beauty that is Grey and Rain. And in the end, though you describe the sunset in such detail, but you've missed it.

    So many interpretations come to my mind, like looking at this piece through a kaleidoscope. But taking it literally for a change is also... an interesting outlook on writing. For me at least. But who am I? (Report) Reply

    He interrupted laughter... I love these two lines. its like being caught in a private moment with someone- interrupted. Love the images of this poem, especially the bleeding orange of spilled sunsets! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful uncertainty

    Those are my favorite 2 lines, cuz I lived them! haha This whole poem is good. Exciting imagery crashes lightly into itself in the readers mind. I like the energy of this. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    I like this one as well my dear......I love the fact that you used colors to represent feeling, they really painted the picture....and belabored the point well.

    He said if I turned my head I would miss it
    If I blinked it would melt

    Love that line BTW. (Report) Reply
