Poetry: "Cherry Red on a Cloudy Grey"

(A poem that's been evolving since 1990)

    Cherry Red On a Cloudy Grey
    Two Colours intermix and just fade away
    If I only knew, how to find the two,
    Then perhaps someday you'll understand
    Two clouds kiss, they burst with tears
    I hid beneath the coloured dome
    But what am I to find
    In those emotions stored down deep inside

    Whatever you may do don't shut the door
    Cause if you wish it so
    Then Jesus says he's sorry you were born
    Though that's not what your life is all about

    If life was always just drinking pink champagne,
    With dreams to make you feel you’re in another world
    Where every day is fine,
    The real world will just be left behind

    What am I to find within the clouds today
    Two frozen hearts drift within The rain
    Still the colours that are red on grey
    That came to intermix and just fade away

    Falling through the colours of this prose
    Fragmented visions of petals of a rose
    A dream to tell you what was on your mind
    Though you might not care much any more
    The blanket's torn, the sky comes through  
    There’s a shining ray of Light
    To lead you to an ordinary world,
    Like that which you've always loved before

    Wherever it’s Dawning from
    Real as the sunlight cast upon
    The honey coloured moon that shines
    A trail to somewhere you’ve been dreaming of

    Don't trust me, I'm from a different world
    With claims to make your dreams last for another day
    Maybe you want me to give the game away
    And Leave us with nothing ever more

    And if I told you that I saw a UFO
    Maybe it was a bonfire through a kaleidoscope
    But when this dreams revealed
    I then too will also understand
