An unnamed poem that Blue Hurt wrote to Keypsiia Walker in my manuscript Blue Lines.

the splendid shine of all human matters of love
changes the lonely melody of sharp hearts play
like a piece of beauty that crashes unusually against calm nothingness

a piece of beauty exists in the icy tears that
grow to a cry aloud with perfect power

before the awesome peace rang in line
but now the clatter of love lost mirrors reflections
of new dark images echoing confusion, feelings without vision

the sound of nothing, the charges of the waters powerful waves
the contrast of her love lost
his love lost
a love lost

the heart decided against joy
lonely, longing, losing
the bright sun changes to dark clouds
but the tears ease
seasons change
but the memory never passes

Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
