Green is the colour

Heavy hung the canopy of blue
Shade my eyes and I can see you
White is the light that shines through the dress that you wore.
She lay in the shadow of the wave
Hazy were the visions of her playing
Sunlight on her eyes but moonshine beat her blind everytime.
Green is the colour of her kind
Quickness of the eye deceives the mind
Envy is the bond between the hopeful and the damned.

An old Pink Floyd song, just sprung to mind like bumping in to a old friend on the street.

Indifference

I will light the match this morning, so I won’t be alone
Watch as she lies silent, for soon light will be gone
I will stand arms outstretched, pretend I’m free to roam
Oh, I will make my way, through, one more day in Hell…
How much difference does it make?
How much difference does it make?

I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
I’ll keep taking punches until their will grows tired
Oh, I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
Hey, I won’t change direction, and I won’t change my mind
How much difference does it make?
How much difference does it make…how much difference…

I’ll swallow poison, until I grow immune
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
How much difference?
How much difference does it make?
