Shades of blue Changed the way I thought of you And are still changing In this very moment. For all the shades of blue, There is a new meaning. And your shades Respond to the inconsistencies In how I choose To let myself portray you. Shades of brown Are the mask which hides All the unrelenting doubts About who you are. The cover of those shades Is a one-way mirror You can see me But I fail to see you And beg to break through the glass And grasp at what I can. Shades of red Reflect my burning heart Full of the heat of desire For that perfect world In which you and I Are the perfect couple. And all of my efforts To set our fire ablaze Are snuffed out by my mind Who scares my heart Into a retreat And the shades of red fade. I must be confident as a match Ready and able to spark And use you as my gasoline To set us aflame.
I think that I know just enough to reignite my confidence and finally say something to that boy who looks so good in that blue sweater. I think I should add that this is the final part of the Shades of Blue trilogy.
