Life In The Blue by Lyne Beringer


Tears that could fill up a bucket

Fell from her emerald eyes

She smiled as she would for the camera

Another well thought out disguise

Make a new choice

She thought to herself

One that’s exciting and new

Round the next corner as fast as you can

Find yourself something to do

Instead she sat in the darkness

Attached to an unstable past

She longed for a prince who was charming

One that had him some class

Sounds of the night all around her

Everything cool to the touch

Where would her thoughts care to journey?

She guessed it didn’t matter that much

The hell with the penny paid for a thought

Give it to someone who cares

Throw in a dollar to stir up the pot

She had her some secrets not meant to be shared

The happy old stars that lit up the black

Had lost their slots in the sky

The dawn was trickling in

The room became flooded in light

She wondered where she was headed

Couldn’t think about where she had been

Another hopeful beginning

Had come to an unsavory end, so she put on her boots

Grabbed her a scarf

Her hair uncombed and a mess

She opened the door, didn’t care anymore

Where she was headed was anyone’s guess

I never thought the word “writer” would be used to describe me and the thoughts that tumble out of my head onto paper. It’s a new me, giving away words all neatly packaged up in rhyme.

 I have lived in the interior of Alaska off and on for nearly twenty years. Alaska gets in your blood. It lures you in then takes your soul hostage, becoming part of who you are, who you become. Every summer, the days are warm, long, and inviting. Tourists descend in droves, racing toward the next adventure, and a rich, colorful history provides plenty of businesses with trinkets to sell the Alaskan nostalgia.  Anything seems possible when you are standing outside at midnight and the stars are nowhere to be found. That is until winter rolls back around.
