Blue amnesia

Artist:   Kim Nelson



i'm 
stilled
by pageantry 
      of glorious beauty- 
      perfect sky and words  
      smooth as velvet grapes-   
      you plumed & stained my nights

electric
blue but i
was deceived
      by your ardent pleas- 
      your  breath is steel cold
      on my slim neck, strangling air  

then
descent- 
sharp blow-   
     blue amnesia-     
     slow keeling & fade
     undressed & delirious-  scattered   


     adrift in the sea

  8. For me, this was all about dementia ... the descent, the forgetting, the fade, adrift. Awesome write!

  10. I can see how this painting caused a stir with your muse. The one word I focused on was electric, and both the painting and the poem are exactly that. You chics rule!

  12. "blue amnesia-
    slow keeling & fade"

    the lift, the fall, the broken heart... whether in romance, the minds fantasies, or the weather... this is the tide that rolls over and over again... beautiful Grace.

  15. Yikes - this is actually kind of frightening to me. Well done, but really kind of scary. I can't help thinking of the pounce in a very ominous kind of way. The pleas--your works very well. k.
