Forget-Me-Not Blue

Forget-Me-Not Blue

A Poem by Vian

When I look at the sky,

I’ll think only of your eyes.

Stormy grey when you’re serious,

After-sunset indigo when you scream in anger,

Forget-me-not blue when you tell me ‘I love you’

 

The fire of your hair is my bedside candle’s flame.

Keeping the darkness at bay

Warming my thoughts and…

Sometimes burning too hot

It’s okay, the scars remind me of you.

 

Your voice is a siren’s song.

Circling my thoughts again and again; a spell

Ensnaring my senses, blinding them too;

Saying you love me, you need me… ‘Don’t forget me’ you whisper;

Tearing into my heart with your piercing voice

 

You flow through every river and stream on this earth.

Taking my breath, pulling me under;

Too fast, too wild, I can’t get out!

Everywhere I go, you follow me like a curse.

I love you, I love you, but I saw a brighter blue.

your most welcome :)
Brighter blue, why can't I but wonder if said blue would lead down a similar path to the one being experienced?
If, the blue of the lover's eyes eventually dissipated into nothing more than madness, what would a brighter blue indicate? Another lover, or romanticizing?
I believe this poem portrays attachment and obsession quite precisely, from the love requited to the "siren's song" indicating an inescapable love that's been romanticized to the point where wounds draw comfort . . .
Personally, I'd presume that the brighter blue would be a romanticized version of the current love that would seem to hurt less, but damage more. But that's just me.

I give many thanks for your beautiful interpretation. I long for these lensed impressions, thank you.. read more
Very interesting.
To me it sounds like a story of someone who fell in love with a river spirit but refused to drown when told. The protagonist reaches for the sky instead of the deep blue churning water of death.
Well done! o.o

That's cool. Some poems and stories just come to people. ^^
Beautiful imagery and references to nature relate the everything of your love to the everything of the world around. I love the line

"You flow through every river and stream on this earth"

That is quite unique and outstanding and of course the closing line

Magical work

I love the picture painted in this poetry. You can sense the love through-out, but feel the need to leave maybe or get out. Things are not as good as they once were, perhaps? Very beautifully written.
