Blue Hopeless Day – Free Verse/Wordle – February 23, 2015

blue … blue as a hopeless day
walking in the rain without an umbrella,
he thought of bright red poppy fields –
where delicate tiny petals mutated
turning into opium pods .-
yearning for that substance,
uncut and potent,
he perched on a tree
down by the flowing river
drifting inside a dream
of peace
he’d long forgotten …
the yearning became pain –
a long hopeless silent cry of wracking pain …
it rent his soul from his body
as he fell in the water
to be washed out to sea.
blue … blue as a hopeless day
I took him with me that day.

    • I’m glad you liked that phrase … blue is my favourite colour, but of course it’s often used for a state of melancholy … and that how I intended it here. Thanks so much for your feedback.

    • That must be one of the really more difficult moments of life … I’ve never visited that particular aspect of life … but there are other difficult moments when “withdrawal” makes living miserable. Thanks for sharing Phylor, Namaste.
