Where have you gone?
There's a dull ache that lingers low...
It's gray and purple with hints of yellow
It reminds me of you

Do you feel it?  Under your heart?
I catch my breath but I'm not dreaming.
I see you... sailing away from this solid ground.

The treasures remain; vivid, in golden light.
The distance is greater.
The glow is fading

I remain here, swallowed in the gray
Seeking light and color
Through the cracks, the shards reflect bits of gold.

Briefly a radiant hue captures my affection
It's enough.
For now, I am content in the sea of indigo
