I speak one language
And you another
My shade of blue
Looks red to you

I keep speaking
And you keep speaking
But still my blue
Looks red to you

The harder we struggle
The worse it gets
For I see blue
But it's red to you

Excellent, Laura. It demonstrates how sometimes two people just are on a different wave length and don't interpret things the same way!

This is a wonderful poem. No matter how much we want a relationship, we have to notice the differences and not shade them over. Great metaphor for so much in life.
