Blue and White

Blue and white,

sand and sky.

Blue and white,

eyes and skin.

Blue and white,

her bathing suit.

 

Summer soft

and waves cold.

Summer hot

and shivering hands

holding tight.

Waves of fortune.

 

Mermaid once,

she’s still sweet.

The roar of fire

and the lost days

are mine alone.

Listen for death.

 

Blue and white,

her colors now

as she swims free,

and I watch,

not the boy I was,

but a ghost.
