this kinda blue
i've been feeling empty lately
kinda out there all by myself
probably need to get me a thicker coat
put this old one here back up on the shelf
i really need to go somewhere
maybe to the library.. maybe read a book
find me a friend...someplace with a different look
getting to old to ramble...not sure what to do
might just be the weather...
when it's
this kinda blue
just don't see nothing headed my way
everyday pretty much the same
people start lookin all alike
everyone seems to have a game
all you left was a memory,or two
sometimes i think the whole city
feels this kinda blue
it's just an empty feelin
like this might be all i'll be
some nameless...faceless...no-body
living my life aimlessly
i don't see the wind changin
not a whole lot left to do
just sometimes wonder
if she ever feels 
this kinda blue
 
sat in the corner booth
of an old family diner
the waitress that took my order
reminded me a bit of you
coffee and toast
a false smile from the host
drops of rain
race down a window pane
i sit alone in a booth for two
there's a sound
to this kind of down
a melancholy melody
to this kinda blue

wonderful poem. I hear harmonicas in the background and the blue suddenly flooded my thoughts. serene, solemn, somber, and yes, a bit melancholy- in a good way

get up and make some noise, bang some pots, clang some spoons. enjoy life, let happiness fill the room. smile, and laugh and yes write write write- and the blue shall turn into the blue of the ocean, the sky, the odd shaped jelly bean with the nice flavor, blue like dolphins, new berber carpet, or blue eyes so bright.

Synopsis
There is a melancholy feeling that can engulf you on a grey, rainy day. It usually doesn't last long, but it colors everything a certain kinda blue...especially when you are alone with your memories.
A Word from the Writer
I used to do a lot of writing in the corner booth, in the back of a small diner.
