Blue Eyes

Blue Eyes

A Poem by adriana

Do you know what color loneliness is? 

I used to think it was gray
the saddest of colors
like the pages of a worn out book
or the sensation of not being able to keep it together
it was emptiness' sister
the distant relative of the color black
the absence of happiness in its purest organic form
and yet not the worst of things

It is the color of the person I love the most
their eyes
their emotion
their meaning of life
a color I used to swim in but now find myself drowning in
that color that made me look at the ocean with admiration
and want to kiss September skies
now fills me with loneliness
and accompanies my sadness

I always felt sad
even in the presence of your soft eyes
yet I always had them
looking at me with comfort
but this sadness was different
this sadness pained me
this time I did not have your eyes to reflect my sorrow in

The day you left me 
taking those beautiful eyes with you
you didn't just leave me sad

You left me sad and alone

and now I know what the color of loneliness is
it was always the color of sadness
the color of your eyes

It was always the color blue

Wow I just got chills when reading this poem. I can feel the emotional burden of loosing whoever this "significant other" was.... (I'm guessing it the man referred to with the blue eyes), and carried a beautiful message throughout. I am excited to read some more of your poetry! Feel free to check mine out, feel like my last poem is pretty similar to the raw vulnerability a heart break consists of. :)

Very poignant. Could feel the heartbreak and loneliness.

I esp relished these lines

and now I know what the color of loneliness is
it was always the color of sadness
the color of your eyes

Hits the pangs off loss

Makes me sad to have blue eyes. I don’t recall ever leaving anyone sad and lonely, so that’s one up for those with Blue Eyes. Enjoyed your thoughts here in this piece :)
