Colorblind

 

I bask
in endless
shades of grey.
For when you left,
you took with you,
my life. My colors. 
Vibrancy, 
once endowed.

The light fades
before my eyes.  

The sun's golden rays
and the moon's silver streams
no longer pour
through my window.
They've dwindled, 
left as empty as the wind.

Oh, how I long for
the ocean's navy waves,
for Autumn's tainted leaves
and a flames vermilion.

The petals
on flowers, that once
danced around me,
have wilted, died,
and faded to
black.

These colors
I so loved, 
I never will find,
for without you, 
I'm colorblind.  

The End
