Shades of Purple

Shades of Purple

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe

Purple, I love your 
majestic hues the sunrise

Elizabeth Taylor's
eyes and those
bruises- only

Small bruises
you left upon 
my shell of a body
my joke of a mind

My heart when
beating with

Close your eyes 
let me kiss your lids
of purple

To sleep
dreamless, blissful
anesthetic sleep

Where dreams that are dreamed in
royal purple beneath calm waters

The image of the bruising reflects energy and erotic pleasures, the shell of a body... seems a bit of a brittle image -- and then, was the 'beating' heart intended as a play on the bruising? lol Purple is a very arousing colour for me.... deep dreams... yes, for sure... deep and accompanied by bruises... I'm just rambling lol

I was once in the art gallery of Philadelphia with a best friend and there was this vivid picture of a More, it look so real with details so grand that you could see the veins in his wrist and neck. It was stunning to me, then my friend showed me his favorite painting. God it was like the artist just tossed paint at the canvas, it had no logic to it, no pattern, no detail just splashes of colors that didn't match I thought it was horrible.

All poems don't fit into one category to be considered good, as a reader I don't look for meter, I don't even care if it rhymes or if all of the poem makes sense to me. No for me I look for enlightenment, entertainment, or something just to make me think or remember.

Your poem above makes me remember someone I love very deeply and how I felt when she was with me, how I slept like I was under anesthetics, how a single kiss from her made me see colors that didn't even exist. If one looks at your poem as a whole it is about love and it is about royal love which to me means a love that is deeper than the flesh. This is why I like this poem remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder and not always in the eye of the creator.
