broken blue shattered porcelain scattering across the floor some relationships are more fragile than the finest glass and some are sweet words encapsulated in a reliable see-through bottle thrown into the unpredictable waves of day to day life and coming back just as kind all of them blue light blue that coats my tongue with the taste of spring fluffy clouds and the smell of cotton candy light blue like fake smiles hiding anxiety and the knowledge that the words won't fall from my lips the way I want them to the way the sky looks at me as if wondering why I can't be happy yet green blue seaweed swaying in the cold Maine ocean water crabs scuttle through my memories of the cold water I threw myself into lovingly, only to run out of, laughing from the chill it seems every day I grow older I find myself desiring to go back in time even more back to navy blue
Blue, blue is many things. It can be happiness. It can be sadness. It can be anything in between. The color blue brings back memories of the night sky, but it also brings back sad feelings from the rainy days spent alone. When you think of the ocean you think about the animals, the living creatures swimming in the blue water. Think back to the days at the pool and you can hear children screaming full of joy. They are in the blue water. If you look closely at the snow on the ground you can see the blue. Blue is not only happiness it’s mostly sadness. Those rainy days sitting inside ready a book listing to the somber music. Blue isn’t just feelings either it’s a look, it’s a way of expression. When feeling blue you are sad everything is sad. Not wanting to do anything nothing makes you happy.
