Blue Period

written by River Phoenix

I never thought i'd see
such blue
as the ice I fell into

I never thought I could feel
such blue
as the chill now embracing you

Most of us know where to go
if we need someone

I'm a fool
too out of reach
I believe no one

This is not the way
I want to see your face
and this change could be
the death of you and me

(???) open the door
to such blue
living flesh
our blood shows through

If I could draw
a conclusion here
i'd say....
that the end is near

most of us
have somewhere safe
to escape from the cold
we exhausted any trust
to think we can hold
