Strikethrough 36

I.
I was still a small flame when I
 
Lost myself in sunrise marbling too intimately
 
with gently glowing blushes
 
of rose-tinted coral,
 
forgetting the blue swirling at our edges
 
like shallows preparing to tie dye the sands.
 
I was searching for my soulmate,
 
For an aura to blend with my amber glimmer,
 
For an energy to match burning beams of bronze;
 
Forgetting the blue swirling at my edges,
 
Forgetting that I, too,
 
Am blue at the core.
