"My powers stretch over the horizon and work even when my eyes are closed"

Why does blue eat me up?
I feel it gnaw at my insides.
Some say blue is peace and calm
but in my soul it chaotically bides.
The color drowns my inner thoughts
and splashes down my nose,
it makes me squelch and squish about, laughing at my prose.


Why does blue attack me?
With knives and ice cold rock.
It pelts me with secret tremors
and eyes me like a hawk.
It peels my skin and melts my guts
its monster swallows me whole
with fearsome claws gripping me
too tight to possibly let me go.


Why does blue terrify me?
Its endless eons of sky,
it drowns me and keeps me
miles and miles up high.
The blue is unrelenting,
pulling me to its depths
it’s a screaming siren witch
praying for blue’s success.


It haunts my sleep,
stalks my wake
steals my fingers and my toes,
it leaves me lonely and shivering
in a land that no one knows.

Er Mah Gurd! Yes :D Love it! This is the kind of poetry I love, the imagery is so vivid! Still, the flow could use some improvement, but otherwise, this is beautiful. You really got that pain and morosity all compacted together for your readers to feel with you, in your lonely land of literacy, you stand proudly and present your pounding heart for us to weep. :P Sorry got carried away there. Still, love it! More like this please!
