In tears that blur the page
From lust’s white heat
Then betrayal’s red fury
Now the broken-hearted blues
Of too much and not enough

Optional Extra Teensy-Tiny Challenge:
Write a 5-line poem containing three colors.
Fabulous…and SNAP with the colours.
The red, white and blue! Nicely done, Raivenne!
Sounds patriotic lol. Thanks Kim.
Ah… I guess that’s why they call it the blues. 😉
Time on my hands from the time spent with you – Elton understood. Thanks for the earworm Marian.
Too much and not enough… lovely.
And often lonely. Thanks T-Purge.
luv the longing in the finale
Thank you Gillena.
The last line is the perfect conclusion.
It may be tiny however the words fill my mind full of color!
Beautifully poignant ❤️
Thanks Sanaa. The things that hurt the heart usually and unfortunately are.
Of too much and not enough – tis indeed a perfect conclusion.
Thank you Anna.
Thank you Rosemary.
Love this wee bit. The last line made me sigh…
Sigh, yes. Thanks Magaly.
The last line got me thinking that failed romances can be, as you mention, too much and not enough.
Then I’ve done my job. Thank you Frank.
Great write! Like how you use the colors here..
This one definitely has the blues. Great write!
Elton John would agree. Thanks Susie.
