Blue Lady

This poem was greatly inspired by the late poet/author, Anne Sexton, and her poem, Red Roses.

beg of you, fair Goddess, expatriate this vagabond soul!

Expel the wayward ways, the self-destruction, the tired eye

Lick the festered wounds and kiss the roses planted by

This Blue Lady in studded heels, dancing atop my heart to and fro


Lay to waste her Demonic presence in bright atomic clouds

Take away the key she was given, by the damned devil himself

Force free her desperate grip and send her back to hell!

Then bless my blackened heart, oh please fair Goddess,

To live free of ghoulish shrouds.
