Liquid loved poems, & wrote many beautiful ones. I'm not good at poetry. I haven't written many since I was a child. I hope that you will look at my heart as I pay tribute to Liquid illuzion, and not my numerous mistakes. To my regular visitors- I know that you have heard a lot about Liquid these past few days, but please hang in there with me as I work this through.
This is for/to YOU Liquid,
Hostile Night approaches, demons of the mind.
Anything but sleep. I wander into your liquid blue divine.
Secret refuge from the night. I hid in your wake.
Dark yet decorated in soft light. Liquid blue lake.
A blue feather to dry my tears.
You take away all my of fears.
Photos, laughter, old Bibles, Daisy lab, pearls, fried green tomatoes too.
I sipped slowly from your delicious brew.
Didn't know you well, but feeling was inside.
You want me there. Welcomed me with pride.
Your words I read. Your songs I listen to.
Warm, comforted, safe. The night now ruled by you.
Blue bottles on tree limbs. My demons you cast away.
My torturous night, you magically turn to day.
Your blue liquid washes over me. Took the fear out of my body.
Mistakenly I thought we had time. Get more acquainted, good friends, but I was blind.
For the demons you had too.You just couldn't shake them off of you.
On that horrible day you took your life. My secret refuge floated away.
Now never be the same. Music swept away.
For the greatest gift you took from me was...
(Poem background info - When I had trouble sleeping at nights due to worry I use to visit Liquid's blog. I felt welcomed, safe, warm. As I read her posts, and listened to her playlist sometimes for hours, my worries magically washed away. It's just not the same today.)
