Lilac Sky

You taught me love like blue
Calm melancholy and
The flavor of missing someone
In just the right way.
Blue like the
Cold winter sky,
Fifteenth of December.

But I’ve always been red
Like burning homes and
Strawberry candy that is always too sweet.
Red like seeing it
As it flows next to chalk outlines
On the pavement.

You taught red to see blue
And now I’m confused as to what
I’m supposed to be feeling.
When reality is shattered
Someone should be there to
Pick up the pieces.
And you are here now
To pick up more than just reality.
