Day is visited by darkness, didn't notice it arrive
My vibrant colors are squashed into wistful faded blues
my heart is weighted weary by its disillusioned mood
darkness stifles joy, inhibits me from feeling alive
I Drift into slumber, hoping it alters the mood I will arise in
Eyes shut tight shadows the darkness of day, breath whispers rhythmic weeping
I dream of euphoric colors dancing inside me again, as I lay sleeping
Awakened, quietly aware my bright colors may return...over tomorrows new horizon

Hey there!

i do love your new pic, sorry you had to lose practically loose your brain to do it!:)

I want to tell you how warm my heart felt when you stopped to check in with me at my blog after I had been quiet for a while. thank you for thinking of me.

"breath whispers rhythmic weeping" - very very nice line --- and then ending with hope - well done!

I'm certain your colours will return! I don't believe they ever went away. Very nice.
