Denial (Is A Purple Sky)

by Cole Miller

No matter how
many times you
tell yourself
that the sky
is purple, it
isnt. and every
time you look
outside the blue
will be staring
you in the face

What is shall remain what is, if one is prepared to concede what is. Said beautifully.

Hehe, great job again. Have you heard the song 'Strange Denial' by Bad Religion?

sometimes at night, the sky can turn purple. also, the auroa borelias can make parts of the sky shimmer purple. Wonderful piece here...wonderful

You talk of denial as something that can not be denied. A simple approach to a simple truth, which makes it an excellent poem.
