"Colours forget their radiance, fading into shades of black and grey..."
In Your Absence
Feb. 25 / 2005

Colours forget their radiance,
fading into shades of black and grey
as dismal apparitions of things they used to be
in your absence.

Perfect darkness overcomes the light
that shone to guide my way;
the candle snuffed, I stumble blindly against the dark.
A brighter day slips away from me
in your absence.

My footsteps falter,
unsure where I'm going, where I've been;
uncertain whether deadly shadows growl around the next corner
in this labyrinth. I'm
falling away from myself
in your absence.

Stillness falls to rust and ruin;
nothing spoken, nothing heard.
Without the warm tones of your voice
to stave the frosted silence,
the cold wraps itself around my heart
in your absence.
