Blue Venus

around the earth

Making everything cold

You tingle my legs
And chill my feet

Making the sky a
Dark blue and pink

You make me scared
And I cried

Where are you Blue Venus?
Where are you?

You carry the chill
Across the world

But this only happened
three times

Now, where’s the fourth?

Did they lie?

The scariest thing is that I could not find you
