Poem - Is it Blue or Grey?

Is it Blue or Grey?

O pale light of day
Where blue has become grey
The sands of guilt spill
Rendering immovable the stolid will
Suffocating what once was free
Demanding a verdict for all eternity
That which cannot be delivered
Instead you cried and shivered
Thinking only of a dream untrue
Replacing what was grey with blue

Thank you Skye... this is one of those things that when I read it over I wonder where it came from.... I had a good moment I guess.... and thank you for the very kind fan mail note...

Another gem Suburban Poet - I especially liked the 'drawing back' of the reader's mind at the end of the poem to the beginning and the limpid quality you use, like pale sky and water, that you placed in your imagery. You have a special style Suburban Poet. Thanks for inviting me into your words.
