the colors seem to bleed off of the page, pooling onto the floor and forming an ink blotch
as i stare at the stain it morphs and shifts
nothing matters in the black oblivion and i feel myself sliding down into it
a free fall into a shimmering lake of mercury that coalesces and forms a second skin around me
a liquid metal cocoon envelopes and suffocates me yet i give in willingly
time loses all meaning as i fade into the icy cold nothing of eternity
eyes closed i let this sensation take me where it wants, concern and caring gone like the colors of the world

I’ve used colors as a metaphor for so many thing. This is a beautiful one

thank you. i play in black and white with hints of purples normally. or that is what they look like in my head.
The colors of the world can be an invitation to live! The brilliance of a genius mind can burdensome? The brilliance of colors can revive! Once again…Another non hesitant, description piece of vulnerability, by you. Many great lines!
