Tragically Blue


There's a girl

sitting on the edge

of the world,

touching the blue

with her fingertips,

making the sky fall.


She's no longer

a singer,

a hoper,

a lover.


She is tragically


slipping away,

turning her back

on a world she once

wanted to see.


She is tragically


keeping her hands hidden

in her pockets,

closing her eyes,

blind to a boy she once

wanted to keep.
