the brightest sapphire, the clearest skies
all are beautiful, but nothing compared to your eyes
consumed in waves of my favorite ocean
feeling blue is the greatest emotion
This is an alteration of my "Feeling Blue" poem edited to fit into the chorus of a song. Maybe I'll finish the song and share here soon.

the sapphire albatross
winding way of will
break the hardest
and wear away until
all has measured furthest
and met down that last hill
as all the drops converge
becoming less even still
all becomes one
in the ocean of time
all is perfect
not a single spill

I can't help it when I look into his eyes

When he tells me that his mother's middle name was Martha
That he loves the smell of the supermarket and snow
And that he doesn't like the taste of pickles
Because they're too sour for his tongue
When he tells me that he's never loved a woman like me before

I want to know everything he has tucked away under those sapphire stones

I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth
Mine was made of diamond, sapphire, ruby, and jade
Far more precious than those spoons of silver and gold
Because I didn't know money
But I knew love
The most precious gem that you can't buy

Sapphires wrapped in suede,
She was every color I never defined.
An icy remembrance lingers and grows,
How I wish to rewind.

I dreamt of her last night,
Empty past in my present mind.
A deaf god before me,
The planets finally aligned.

She was free,
Yet she no longer shined.
Still, I cannot forgive myself for such foolish mistakes.
