All poems

If I could bleed the blue from out of the sky

If I could bleed the blue from out of the sky
And render life in grey
The whole wide world would understand
How I feel when you're away

If I could draw the heat from out of the sun
To fuel my furious fire
I feel the world would be undone
As you consume my pyre

If I could rip the songs from throats of birds
to forge a symphony
I fear the world would be silenced
As you are deaf to me

If I could pluck the heads from every flower
And line them up on spikes
I believe the world would be outraged
As you are worth such sights

If I could strip the surface from the land
Expose the dirt beneath
I know the Earth would be ashamed
As you're beyond belief
