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
For now, I am content in the sea of indigo
