the color you call blue..

the color you call blue..

A Poem by Rain
"

Sometimes I complain about stuff that other people dream of.

"
you can write about your wars
the battles you've won or lost
you can sing about your highways
all the souvenirs you tossed
tell me all about sweet marie
how she left you all alone
how you wanted to end it all 
how the pain went to the bone
you can drop down to your knees
cry the whole night through
somewhere someone lays alone
from a wound cut clean an true
somewhere someone is bleedin
for the color you call blue
 
sing me about your bad times
sing me and make me cry
tell me about your lost plans
and every dream you watched die
sing me loud your misery
let the world know your pain
tell it how confused you are
how it feels alone in the rain
tell me how it feels my friend
sing me about the life that's you
somewhere someone is bleedin
for the color you call blue
 
tell me about every alley way
every wrong turn you've ever made
let people know how unfair life is
represent all the bruises laid
write a song of a river deep
about the mountains you have faced
tell me how helpless feels
when everything you love's erased
tell me about how hard you tried
but everything you tried went wrong
sing me all about your path
put every failure in your song
when you have screamed out every hurt
you have thrown out all that's true
somewhere someone's bleedin
for the color you call blue..

This is an amazing poem, and a wonderful read. (: It's interesting to think that the stuff we complain about or take for granted are the things that other people would die for. o= Definitely puts into perspective those people that complain /all/ the time (and I admitt, I'm guilty of this occasionally! XD) This was a rewarding read! ^___^

Rain, this is the absolute best I've read in a very long time! Superfluous becomes sustaining by way of your descriptive soliloquy. STUPENDOUS!

This goes into my favorites because it's SO tangible. If people can't read this and understand the old addage about 'somewhere, somebody being worse off than you', they never will.

As usual, right to the core; right to the heart; right to the truth.

Be well, friend.

Stunning. I've been cursed with always knowing someone far worse off than me....so my complaints are always easily dismissed by those who bleed for my color blue. But, as time goes on and feelings grow I think I can match one or two of those "friends" who always beat me, while I still know that there are many more who would love to "suffer" as I do. I once frequented a place where we were free to speak on whatever we fancied, usually an issue of our day or whatever. One thing I remember most about that place is that it's been said if we all dumped our worst out on the floor....we'd all be clamering to get our own back at the end of the day. Good write, great message.

Always good to remeber the other people out there who are suffering much more than us, even if we don't feel like anyone else in the world could ever have it as bad.

This was a very well put together piece. It flows well and is easy to read. This is the kind of poetry I WISH I could write, lol. Great job and, as always, thanks for sharing :)

This is a really nice idea and you executed it pretty well. The rhythm jumps around a little bit, and that unnerved me - you might want to make it a little more consistent. It's a really nice reminder, though, that no matter how bad things are for one person, we should remember how much worse it is for someone else.

Umm... wow. I'm quite lost. This piece is so... beautiful. Simply beautiful.

Let's start with the most notable aspect of this piece: the rhythm. The rhythm was beautiful, and the lines flowed together amazingly well. Your word choice was excellent for this piece--not too classy, but definitely not too informal.

I found myself thinking about the imagery towards the end, having realized that you had painted a picture in my mind with your words that I didn't even know was there. This piece was simply beautiful.

Now, this is one of my favorites, as you've said every category in the major book in the world called 'Blue' hehe. Very well done, and truly very powerful. It takes much to cope with all of the stress. Well Done!

You've got blues in all the hues of down.
Work on green (the best I've seen)
Just keep the red tube capped
