Breathing in Shades of Red and Blue

(Note: Be gentle. Poetry’s never really been my bailiwick — but comments are welcome.)

Looking back along a lifetime
Moments of memories held together by scars
Fear and hunger flavored with hope
Breathing in shades of red and blue

Dreams frozen in reality’s glance,
Shattered, shards festering, gouging
Reflecting sunshine, blinding hopeful delusion
Teasing, torturing glimpses of normal

Cursing, futile railing against the nevermore
Scraping promise’s tender underbelly
Smothering sweetness, precarious joy
Screaming feuds of time against fortitude
