Cornflower Blue

Cornflower blue
It’s not as easy as it used to be
To be loved implicitly
I am
Just like a little boy inside
Who only wants to be loved
Maybe do I make it
Too complicated
Maybe we are
All this way
Cornflower blue
A bachelor’s button
On your suit
Sewing the oats
As a young man in love
Maybe blue tears
Will bring the fire
That for years has been
Crackling in my heart
Unseen parts of us
Awaiting their discovery
I had once a dream
Of this
Blue cornflower
Floating down a stream
A spinning flowerhead
Like a top that swirled into
My mouth and then
I blew it out
It turned about and out into
Thousands more
Floating through the air
Tiny blue sparks
Finding their way
Breathing in pain
Pure suffering and
Blowing out flowers
Where love could be sustained
On the shores of every chest
The tiny sparks of blue did rest

Cornflower blue
It’s not as easy as it used to be
To be loved implicitly
I am
Getting older and
With each passing day
I am
Holding onto the ones
Who love pristinely
Purely wanting to return
The synchronized glowing
Unmistakably true love
Unconditional breakthrough

Cornflower blue
A bachelor’s button
On your suit
Sewing the oats
As a young man in love
Free from the confusion
Strengthened from the
Trepidation of my sweet youth

Blue Curtains

What have you disguised
Behind those blue curtains?
Is there something to hide
Something perhaps like
Too much light
A dirty secret
Scratches on the surface

Whatever it is
I can take it
Open that blue cotton
Make way for rays
In this room in ways
You’ve never seen before

Shadows running
For the hills
Only meaningful distractions
What could be keeping
Those shades drawn?
No matter the reason
There is a willingness
A pleasing
To open up
That oracle
Decipher the mystery
You’re keeping
Where screens have
Kept out what would
Surely flow in

Up and down they go

If you no longer
Want to confine
Whatever it is
This this…
Enigmatic hidden pleasure
If I tell you
You can trust me
If you trust me
And you do
When you’re ready
You can pull back
Those blue drapes
Take my hand
My wild escape
Serene surprise
When you’re ready
You can open up
Your eyes
