"Blue" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"Blue"

You, wrapped up in me, me, wrapped up in you

We, together, together entwined, wrapped up in blue

An old blanket we shared that kept us warm

In our time of need

In our deep sea

Our emotional abyss

Diving into each other

Sharing our wave

My lil boy, holding hands with your lil girl

On a summer night

Speeding down a road to our river of pain

Teardrops pelt the windshield

Salty n wet

Two fools

Down at the rivers edge

Our lil boy and our lil girl, take a dip

Saturated

Holding the lil girl in his hands

The lil boy, morphs into a man

Making sure she doesn't drown

Knowing that she must learn to swim

He lets go of his mermaid to never see her again

For the experience would be too cruel

The two left to drown, in sorrow, on separate planets

Venus and Mars

Part of each other's universe

Becoming figments

Fragments

Pieces of red blown into black

Cold flows, love goes, down, into the deepest part of you

Somewhere in the heart, the lil boy and the lil girl lay naked, nestled in their blanket of blue
