Prompt 30 – Colour – Blue Angel


Moments when I see red

I hate the pain

The anger

The resentment

Take that away from me.

Hold me when I fear

The red devils are taking over.

I’m better when my blue angel

Sits at my side

Casts fear aside

Holds my hand

Assures me.

Then when the purple fiend arrives

Cackles hideously, tempts me to sin

Tempts me to doubt

To fuck you off

That you mean nothing

That I’d be better in its malevolent purple world.

But I have faith, my blue angel

Faith is all I have

You whisper to me



Show me a love I don’t understand

But want and crave.

    And I find red comforting and loving. πŸ™‚ Funny how everyone sees things differently.

  2. I am not sure what I would hate more, the purple fiend or the red devil. A brilliant pic to accompany your piece Michael ~ the cackles hideously is rather wonderful.

  3. Thanks Jenny, we all have colours we see representative of things in our lives some good some not.

  4. Oooooh another brilliant take. I love the vehemence. I’ve seen new dimensions of your writing in both the pieces I’ve read today excellent work. I am especially drawn to your associations with purple, really excellent

    • Thanks Yves, this one came to me last night and I wasn’t sure if I could post more than one but our mutual friend said you would be cool about it, so thanks for those lovely words. I am finding the more I write the better I feel i am getting at it, and it is such fun, playing with words.

  5. Lovely! Triumph of the blue angel!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I love the things you do with colour – you seem to make really strong associations with colour and you convey them so well
